    This is a great episode. If anyone has seen the Robert Mitchum/Gregory Peck 1962 original or the Robert De Niro/Marton Scorsese 1991 remake of Cape Fear (the movie this episode is based on) then you realize the similarities between the movie and the episode.

    This episode is wonderful. Sideshow Bob's release (The Bart The is sooooooooo funny), and Homer's stupidity (when I say Mr. Thompson and stamp on your foot) are some of the best in this episode.

    But the highlight is the rake sequence, it may not be the best when it comes to the actual story but it is quite hilarious. One of the show's best.
