Synopsis:
This disc features four episodes from The Simpsons from 1990, 1999, 2000, & 2001:

Homer's Night Out A night at a strip club leads to a naughty photo of Homer which circulates around Springfield. Marge makes Homer apologize to the exotic dancer to teach Bart that women are not objects.

Sunday, Cruddy Sunday Homer and Bart lead a group of Springfielders to the Super Bowl. But when they get there they find their tickets are no good, and they must sneak in.

The Mansion Family Mr. Burns goes to visit the Mayo Clinic, leaving the Simpsons in charge of his mansion. Homer takes Burns' yacht out to international waters, where he encounters Chinese pirates.

HomerThe Moe When Moe goes back to bartending school, Homer fills in for him. Then Moe returns and completely redesigns the bar, alienating his regulars.

The Simpsons Gone Wild is not rated.

The Movie:
What can you say about The Simpsons that hasn't already been said? I really enjoy the series and I've been a follower since it first debuted. Chances are you not only follow the series too, but you've probably seen these very episodes. If not, they're on TV in endless syndication. You can turn the TV on at any point in the day and find it.

These particular episodes were chosen to go along with the "Simpsons Gone Wild" theme. On these shows you can find guest stars Britney Spears, R.E.M., Fred Willard, Troy Aikman, Rosie Grier, John Madden, Dan Marino, Pat Summerall, and Dolly Parton.

Honestly, I'm not sure why Simpsons fans would want to buy this DVD. I would think it would be preferable to buy an entire season instead. But if your budget is tight or you don't catch it in syndication, then this might be an alternative.

The Extras:
The only extra included on this DVD is "Krusty The Clown King Of Comedy Featurette". It shows clip after clip of Krusty doing his thing. It's less than 5 minutes long, but it is a fun highlight reel. However, I'd rather have seen some sort of "making of" feature or interviews with the actors.

The Bottom Line:
You're probably better off buying a DVD set containing an entire season of The Simpsons, but a DVD featuring any Simpsons episodes is going to be fun.
