We've had a great day so far.

We just got home from the states. In honour of Simpsons Day, we spent the morning in Syracuse, shopping and stuff. We had lunch at BK where we picked up 3 of the 16 talking toys!! After lunch, we drove back to Watertown to see the movie.

It was great. It was kind of neat watching the movie with an American audience. I think we laughed louder at some of the anti-bush jokes than the rest of the folks in the theatre. I guess it's easier to laugh when you don't have to live with him every day. I mean Stephen Harper is a joke too but it's a different thing completely.

I didn't really go into the movie with any set expectations. We felt that the last two seasons weren't as great as they could have been and kept telling each other, "it's okay, they're saving the good stuff for the movie."

We were right. The movie was hilarious. Funniest comedy I've seen in a long time. The animation was spectactular too. When you have the resources of a motion picture production company behind you, it makes all of the difference in the world. Some of the scenes were absolutely breath taking. Just lovely.

Even if you're not a fan of the Simpsons, I think you'd like it. It's worthwhile seeing for a few reasons (not just cuz it's funny and gorgeous): the character you would least expect to cus, actually does and, if you stick around until the credits are done, you get to hear "Maggies first word."

It's a good'un. If the rain holds off, we're hoping to head to the drive in shortly to see it again, tonight.
