  • Mel Gibson!

    Homer and Marge see a test screening of Mel Gibson's version of Mr. Smith Goes To Washington. Everyone loves it, except Homer, who found it to be "more boring then church."

    So Mel obsesses over Homer's review. He decides he needs Homer to help him improve the film {because he also felt it was a lame film}.

    So Mel flies the Simpsons to Hollywood, where Marge and the kids roam around and Homer helps Mel, by making it much more violent and making it make little to no sense.

    After showing some executives, they hate it, so they plan to destroy the film. So Mel and Homer steal it and show it to Springfield- all of whom hate it because of the ending and the much violent aspect.

    Mel and Homer depart ways.

    A typical, very typical, Scully season episode. Homer works with a new celebrity "friend" and the rest of them are barely used. Very low on humor, also.
