Homer adopts a pig who's run away from Krusty Burger after Krusty tried to have him slaughtered, naming the pig "Spider Pig." At the same time, the lake is protected after the audience sink the barge Green Day are on with garbage after they mention the environment. Meanwhile, Spider Pig's waste has filled up a silo in just 2 days, apparently with Homer's help. Homer can't get to the dump quickly so dumps the silo in the lake, polluting it. Russ Cargill, the villainous boss of the EPA, gives Arnold Schwarzenegger, president of the USA, 5 options and forces him to choose 4 (which is, unfortunately, to destroy Springfield) and putting a dome over Springfield to prevent evacuation. Homer, however, has escaped, along with his family. Can he stop the evil Cargill from annihilating his home town, and his family, who have been forced to return to Springfield?Written by
According to the DVD commentary, virtually none of the gags from the original draft (written around 2003) made it to the final cut. One of the few exceptions was the fishing scene between Homer and Bart. See more »
When Russ Cargill shows the President the surveillance footage of domed Springfield, the President's desk is only a few feet away from the fireplace, which is absurdly closer than in any other shots. See more »

For network television, the image is modified to fit a 16:9 screen (the same aspect ratio as later, high-definition episodes of the television series). As such, the aspect ratio never widens to 2.35:1 after the opening Itchy & Scratchy segment, and certain shots in the film (notably when Bart, in his tree, speaks to Flanders, in his house) are compressed horizontally to fit everything within frame.

It's about time! The longest running animated show finally became a film. And if you were like me and anticipated it extremely, you'll feel let down. But just a little, for in my opinion it is more than just a long Simpsons episode. It has many memorable, funny aspects that only a movie could have. The main reason why I saw this is because I was curious at how they would turn this series into a movie, and I do not think that it could have been done better. Being as big of a Simpsons fan as I am, this is the movie that was worth waiting for. Without even having too much swearing, this is a film you will respect for being as good as it was without having too much innuendo. Joke-after-joke, they managed to make it a great movie along with being a feast of laughter.
