In the eagerly-awaited film, Homer must save the world from a catastrophe he himself created. It all begins with Homer, his new pet pig, and a leaky silo full of droppings - a combination that triggers a disaster the likes of which Springfield has never experienced. As the fates of Springfield and the world hang in the balance, Homer embarks on a personal odyssey of redemption - seeking forgiveness from Marge, the reunion of his splintered family, and the salvation of his hometown.

I’ve been rewatching some Simpsons episodes recently, and gone beyond when it was good into the wilderness past series ten, and that made me realise I hadn’t seen the film, even though I’ve always meant to watch it. It was available on Disney+ to stream so I gave it a watch and was pleasantly surprised! It’s really good, funny, satirical, a far cry from the letdown of some of the episodes I’ve been watching. Love the Under the Dome references, and that bit with Bart and the hedge - omg! Definitely worth a watch.
