Trailer Blazer: 'The Simpsons Movie'

How do you turn a cliché into something hilarious? Ask the folks behind the dangerously funny trailer for The Simpsons Movie, which takes the tired chestnut "between a rock and a hard place" and transforms it into a side-splitting sight gag. Add the line, "Uh, the bunny’s not breathing," and this one looks like the rare animated movie I’ll actually shell out money to see, come next July 27. (You know, as opposed to saying I’ll see it, and then sort of forgetting to go.) How ’bout you, PopWatchers?

    That was great. I can’t wait to see it! Now when are the South Park boys going to make a follow-up to “Bigger, Longer, and Uncut”?!

    DOH!!!
    It has taken a looooooong time for it to finally get here, but TV’s most beloved dysfunctional klan is coming to the big screen, and I for one can’t wait.
    I just hope there won’t be a film version of AMERICAN DAD…

    I hope 100 tacos for $100 will be adequate sustance for repeat viewings of this movie. I even liked last night’s episode.

    I thought that “trailer” was lame…me and my significant other just looked at each other and said “That’s it?”

  • Anna

    i agree about it being lame. the entire football game they hyped it and hyped it and then it came on and it was eh.

    Next summer I will probably be living at the movie theater. Between “The Simpsons”, “Spider Man 3″, “Shrek 3″ “Pirates of the Carribean 3″ and Harry Potter 5″ Summer 2007 will go down in history as the BEST MOVIE SUMMER EVER!

    I actually laughed at Homer and the whole rock and a hard place bit. It took a second to register what was goin on but then got it.

    wow, that really WASN’T funny. are you being sarcastic slezak? because that was as tired as they come.

  • Mozz

    Thanks slezack, I just laugh so loud at work, my boss came over to see what was so funny… so I showed her…She laughed out loud, and then told me to get back to work, a few minutes later an interoffice e-mail from my boss… connected everyone in the office to the trailer. Now my boss is getting all the credit for being the coolest person in the world. GOD, I hate it when she takes credit for my lazyness.

    I thought it was perfect – showed us just enough to peak our interest. Still a little scared that it is going to suck and I wish they would have given us some more idea of what the story is going to be about (just a little) – but I will be going and seeing it.
    Hopefully it will be as good as the “South Park” movie was…….here’s hoping!!

    I’m not a Simpsons fan, but I hurt myself laughing at this trailer.

  • Chad

    I hate to say it…but I didn’t like it. I was very disappointed. Isn’t this movie about 5 years too late anyway?

  • Cynic

    This was little more than another teaser trailer.

  • donner

    I thought the trailer was boring…not funny in the slightest…and I LOVE old Simpsons (monorail, etc)…I watched last night’s episode and it was awful…why can’t the movie have been written by Conan O’Brien and the funny people who USED to do the show…so sad…

    Message to “Lee:”
    Amen, brother!
    I’ll probably be sitting right behind you…
    2007 is going to be HUGE at the box office!
