We've brought you exclusive photos from the new Simpsons Movie mobile phones that Samsung is debuting, and now we've got another piece of exciting Simpsons Movie news - thanks to our awesome friends over at SlashFilm.com. For some odd reason, Microsoft's site posted this plot synopsis for the film, and someone snapped a photo before it went away. So without further ado, here it is.
When Homer accidentally pollutes the river with toxic waste from the nuclear power plant he gets fired from his job and everyone has to evacuate Springfield, possibly forever.
Fairly simple actually, but sounds like it'll open some doors for plenty of hilarious content. Stay tuned for more details as we near its July 27th release!

The plot to The Simpsons movie sounds really good. I can already tell that I'll be laughing hysterically when I watch it. Everything Simpsons is almost guarenteed to be funny. July 27th is kind of far away, but I'm sure the movie will be worth the wait. I definitely won't miss this, I'm a true Simpsons fan. Homer is the best! Did you guys know The Simpsons won favorite animated comedy for The People's Choice Awards?! Did anyone check out the show? Anyone enjoy it?

Maybe it is just me, but I'm having trouble getting excited for this movie. The quality of the show has skydived in recent year and turned this once loyal fan who didn't miss a single episode for many years into a shunner of the entire series. If it weren't for the DVDs, I may have forgotten how poignant and sharp the show was in its prime. I can't be the only one out there who both smiles at the idea of a Simpsons movie but shifts uneasily in their seat as the process the idea that it will simply be an extended version of one of the current, poorly made episodes. Am I alone?

Don't worry Charlie, I assume every fan must be worried somehow or another. Personally, I like the newer episodes, but I understand that a lot of people are upset with the quality. To cheer you up, the writers of the classic era (se. 3-8) are returning. The animation is beautiful (and I actually like the rough animation). The one thing that bothers me however, is we'll never know the real plot until July 27th. But remember, no matter how awful it may be; it's the freakin' Simpsons Movie! Woo-hoo!

Thanks for the words of encouragement Bradley. The original writers (Sam Simon, John Schwartzwelder, David Mirkin, among others) is something I've considered and is perhaps what gives me hope for the movie. Just to say "The Simpsons Movie" does bring a smile to my face. I'm glad you still get a thrill from the show. I guess if it weren't for the hardcore fans who support the show still(fair to call you that?), we wouldn't be getting this movie. If we're lucky, it will remind us of those glorious seasons (3-8, like you said). Good enough to do the Bart dance!

I have heard of rumors of the Simpsons putting out a fake plot in the news just to screw some people up and get them crazed for the movie's real plot. As James L. Brooks even said on Wikipedia: "We are going to put some fake plots out there, just to make it interesting." I know you might be thinking some fake plots but think of it. Why would someone post a plot for so little time just enough time for someone to take a photo of it. Also this sounds like the ending of the Simpsons, forever. Unless this movie has ruined the company or the writers are just getting old, I do not think it will happen. So my view on this is it is fake. I look very much forward to the movie on July 27, but until then who knows what the real plot is and that is why I will see the movie. Well that and because it's The Simpsons Movie. I mean who could miss that!

I'm with you Charlie, I used to think the Simpsons was the greatest show on earth, now I will not watch it, it has really become a traversty. It is a shame that studios do not know when to quit and have to keep spinning out a show as long as it will make money. Matt Groening even gave a response like that when he was asked a couple years ago how long he thought the show would run for. Why cant they quit while they are ahead, some of the best shows in history are those that ceme to an end in their prime (Quantum Leap, the Office to name but two). I dont reccomend anyone pay money to see this movie

Isn't it kind of silly to "not recommend" a movie you've never even seen?
