This week on the show, the long-awaited crossover event is here as Henry Gilbert and Bob Mackey from the great Talking Simpsons podcast are hanging out to chat about the 87-minute missed opportunity, The Simpsons Movie! Why weren't Mr. Burns or Sideshow Bob the villain of the film? If it had to be an Albert Brooks-voiced character, why not Hank Scorpio? Did we really need to see Bart's genitals? And really, who is this movie for? PLUS: Transforming those 7-11s into Kwik-E-Marts was a terrible idea. The Simpsons Movie stars Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, Harry Shearer, Pamela Hayden, Tress MacNeille, Russi Taylor, Maggie Roswell, and Albert Brooks; directed by David Silverman.Check out WHM at FRQNCY in June!Catch WHM on tour this fall, hopefully!WHM Merch StoreAdvertise on We Hate Movies via Gumball.fm

I feel like Before I Go to Sleep with Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth is kind of the dramatic Overboard crossed with a dramatic 50 First Dates

this episode very nearly killed me. I was walking to pick up a dominoes pizza (we don't get the insurance up here in Canada) near my place, that required walking down a steep steep hill in the middle of an icy icy January. I burst out laughing at the episode and didn't notice an ice patch that sent me tumbling and sliding down the hill, and almost out into traffic. I survived, got my pizza and took the long way home, with this episode keeping me company the whole way. thank you, boys. I don't know if you ever see these comments, but your podcast is an amazing gift, that I happily support.

I just noticed that the only reason there are so many comments is Luke aka Luke Glix is a shameless shill ! I mean nice try and may have worked if you didn't post so much!! The guys live in one of the most expensive cities in America ! They obviously have money to be able to do that but don't expect us to pay for them to have their dream job and be able to afford NYC!
