    15 years, wow. I went to watch it in theaters with my friends in high school. The next week everyone was a spider pig

  3. still jealous none of my local 711s turned into Kwiq E Marts

  4. Todd: I wish Homer was my father.

    Ned: And I wish you didn’t have the devil’s curly hair.

  5. “cromulent /ˈkrɒmjʊlənt /
    ▸ adjective humorous acceptable or adequate:
    the continental breakfast was perfectly cromulent
    however you spell it, it’s certainly a cromulent word.
    – ORIGIN 1990s: first used in the US animated television series The Simpsons.”

    by Oxford Dictionary of English

  6. Still can’t believe I saw Bart’s dick

  7. I remember when they announced this movie in like 2004 or 2005, and it felt like an eternity waiting for it to be released.

  8. I remember this movie coming out and thinking “wow this is late to the party” as the Simpsons seemed old then.. but now it’s 15 years later!?

  9. I was elected to lead, not to read…

    NUMBER THREE!

  10. This always stands out to me because we were never allowed to watch The Simpsons in my house. We couldn’t even mention it at a certain point, let alone ask if we could watch it. And then the summer this came out, my parents randomly decide to take me to The Simpsons movie. At the time I thought it was awesome, not weird.

    Turns out my parents would separate a few weeks later, and I guess in their minds taking me to see “the forbidden movie” would soften the blow? That was a weird summer.

  11. The Green Day cover of The Simpson theme has been my ringtone forever.

  12. Dude… My mum let me skip school to see this release day. How is it 15 years old

  13. 15… wtf…

  14. Must kill Moe, wheeee

  15. No one knows what either of those words mean.

  16. Spider pig spider pig

  17. – “Yes, the robot standing on the small child over there.”

    – “Ooh, when are you gonna make another Simpson’s movie?”

    > ‘The Simpsons’ is now approaching its 33rd season, but The Simpsons Movie was its last big pop culture moment.

  19. Lisa it’s your birthday, happy birthday Lisa

  20. fifteen years ago was 2007. fifteen years before that was 1992. the movie is almost closer in time to the first episode than it is to the most recent episode.

    of course, we all know that 1990 was only ten years ago.

  21. I saw a tweet that said it’s difficult to explain the stranglehold Spider Pig had on pop culture and it’s very true

    Useless fact: I have an un opened copy of the DVD I won at a target i worked at about 2 months after it was released on dvd.

  23. I remember winning free tickets on a simpsons trivia contest to see the premier in my city. I took my sister and a bunch of friends and we never laughed so hard in our lives at some of the parts – especially Barts skateboard ride (“I like men now”). We ended up seeing it like 2-3 more times after – and it was one of the first movies my wife and I saw together when we started dating that year. We still sing spider pig all the time (especially the opera version) and occasionally one of our toddlers will sing this when she hears the actual Spider-Man song. Can’t believe this was 15 years ago. Damn I’m old.

  24. Can’t believe The Simpsons Movie was half my life ago. I remember being so hyped for 2007. I was watching all these new trailers for new movies at the end of 2006/beginning of 2007 on this newish website called YouTube.

    There was going to be a new Mr Bean film, Transformers, Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, Ghost Rider, Harry Potter, Simpsons, Pirates of the Caribbean, Shrek, National Treasure, Rush Hour, TMNT, Hot Fuzz, Oceans 13, 28 Weeks Later, The Bourne Ultimatum, Die Hard, Evan Almighty, Alien vs Predator

    I know not all of them ended up being good but the hype going into that year hasn’t been matched for me. 2019 is the only year that came kinda close but not as much

    15 years huh? Time flies

  26. The title is a reference from the show, people! Jeez!

  27. “I like men now”

  28. and yet no sequel…

  29. When asked why it took so long Matt Groening said “well, first we had to think up a title”

  30. I’ve always sort of felt that The Simpsons Movie was the last hurrah for the franchise. I understand why the show is going still, though.

    It makes Disney and 20th way too much money to stop and the show employs a lot of animators in an industry that doesn’t make television animation a priority as far as residuals and treatment goes.

    Man, I made a week out of this with my friends. We saw Clerks II, Simpsons Movie and then a live George Carlin show in about 36 hrs. Probably the funniest weekend of my life.

  32. Matt Groening said the Simpsons would end after the movie….
