    Rate and Review "The Longest Daycare"

    If you saw it, what did you think?

  2. #2


    Did anyone catch the full writer / producer credits? I think there were about five people on each list. I'm pretty sure the writers' list started with James L. Brooks, Groening, and David Mirkin (?!). Between writing this short and hosting the Comic Con panel, it's nice to see Mirkin taking a slightly-more-active role. Anyone else of interest on there?

    This movie seems to be well received. Even Dead Homer Society liked it. Still doesn't make me want to see Ice Age 4, though.

    Yeah, I noticed after I posted that. Trying to edit, but my brower's acting screwy.

    EDIT: Fixed.

    Well I was surprised that I wasn't the oldest childless person in the theatre and that it seemed like many people knew about the short (but nobody else just stayed for this short). Also glad that they showed it since this is the kind of stuff they usually don't show at my local theatre. Anyway, for the review I'll say that I've enjoyed the short a lot even though I'll start with the nit-picking.
    First, I thought the 3D was kind of unnecessary and that the writers knew it since it was only important for one - bad - gag. And I thought I was going to see the same kind of decent style common with good new era episodes, with some of the first gags kind of "meh" (the intelligence detector, the unmotivational poster in the background I know) but this is kind of passable since this is so short. Then the actual story was, like the movie, in a quality not quite classic-era worthy but better than post-classic. Then everything went smoothly with some good smiling-moment but nothing too laugh out loud as you would expect from a Maggie silent film. But it was clever and very sweet. Hope you don't mind that I write a review almost longer than the short film itself but I enjoyed this one and I think this comes to the expectation of what most of us had thinking about Simpsons shorts before a movie.

    So 4/5

    I saw them all but I'm not 100 % sure if I'm missing someone : Writers: Matt Groening, James L. Brooks, David Mirkin, Joel H. Cohen and Michael Price

    I'm not really interested in Ice Age 4, so I'll just wait for YouTube or something.

    About to go and see it today, for some reason I have very high expectations.

    Update: Well I saw and was pleased, I'd Give it a 4/5, it was enjoyable, and although I wish it was longer, it was just great to see The Simpsons on the big screen, and I think the 3D worked pretty well, adding some depth without being in your face (like Ice Age 4).
    It could have been funnier but it was sweet and I enjoyed it more than Ice Age 4, which was pretty bad:
    I won't bother elaborating but there were very few good jokes along with mediocre acting and a very simple plot. Funnily enough I went till the end of the film thinking that a character was voiced by Mila Kunis, just to find out it was someone I never heard of =p.
    And if anyone cares turns out Nicki Minaj and Drake have minor (Pointless) roles in this film.

    I liked it a lot and I'd love to see more Simpsons shorts in front of different movies, I'd give a 4/5
    Ice Age on the other hand I'd give a 1/5.

    Aside from the three you mentioned, Al Jean, Michael Price and Joel H. Cohen were also listed as writers.

    The short, if not laugh out loud funny, more than succeeds at being charming, entertaining and heart warming. More of this, Simpsons' staff.

    It's on Youtube now, btw.

    Wow, I really liked it! So simple, yet so heartwrenching. Very, very good job.

  17. #14


    Wow. This proves that they can do a good job if inclined to (I mean, when their work is demonstrated prior to a very popular movie). Also remarkable is that they accomplished it with Michael Price on the writing crew, a writer known for only a couple or so of good episodes.

    I bet they saved a ton of money by not using any of the voice-actors.

    I think the writers did a pretty good job putting a nice but short 5 minute film. It's very simple and cute. I gave it a 4/5.

    I saw a crappy Youtube version. It was really cute! 4.5/5 A- It was emotional without being sappy, which is something I haven't seen on the show for a while.

    It was cute. They should try doing something like that on the show. It's amazing what can be accomplished without overlong gags that don't work and a simple story.

    Watched it on YouTube. Not bad, actually. It was kinda cute, Reminiscent of Maggie's subplot in A Streetcar Named Marge. 4/5 (B)

    I just saw it on YouTube and I really enjoyed it. It was simple, but funny and creative at the same time. Better than a lot of actual episodes. 5/5

    Saw it on youtube.

    Really sweet. Loved the Maggie and Gerald chase, and it must have all looked amazing in 3D...but a four minute movie's not worth a cinema ticket.

    4/5

    I hope they have time to slip the short in the bonuses of Season 15 (DVD boxset). It would be a great bonus !

    I enjoyed it a lot

    It's nice to see some actual acting for once and it's neat to see how much of the simpsons' spirit is present despite the lack of dialogue (that your future is literally determined by the authorities as a baby, often wrong technologies, bleakest black, etc.). it's cute and the visuals (as far as I could tell from a grainy youtube video) looked great and the gags are good too (chuckled at raggedy ayn rand dolls and the baby orchestra). the show translates well, it's like a pixar short with a bit more bite. I'd be happy if they cancelled the show tomorrow and just did shorts like these from now on

    my only complaint is that the politics is inconsistent - there's no point in keeping the ayn rand school (and ms. sinclair!) except for fanservice, since the whole objectivism thing (mocked so well in streetcar) doesn't really jibe well with the National Security State stuff

    What I would like to see after the show is over is more of this; quaint, short, self-contained stories featuring our favorite characters. Much like The Seemingly Never-Ending Story or 22 Short Films about Springfield, some of the best Simpsons humor comes from short subjects, and Maggie is the shortest subject yet. The short was more pathos than anything, although I found it much more endearing and interesting than that Season 4 "Let's imitate the Rugrats" segment in A Streetcar Named Marge. The animation was great, the characters fleshed-out well from their facial expressions and movements (no dialogue was really needed here) and it just... worked.
