This was a Lisa-centric plot that didn't do all that much for me. Marge getting possessive of her daughter was a little bit out-of-character for her, but there wasn't anything terrible here. This plot was just...there. But the bit with Sherri and Terri shuffling each other was hilarious.
Now the B-plot, on the other hand, with Bart and Milhouse playing Mythbusters...was AWESOME! What took this show so long to touch the ever-amazing Mythbusters? The comedy here was great and I even loved how Adam and Jamie poked fun at themselves for turning the show into "55 minutes and then a giant explosion".
This one wins purely for Bart and Milhouse. Take or leave the rest.
Jamie: What was it we were trying to prove again? Adam: Don't know, don't care!
Yeah, I didn't care much for the A-plot; didn't think they explored Lisa's new BF as much as they could've. The B-plot was fine, but not being a Mythbusters guy, I wasn't as into it as others may have been. Still, as B-plots go, better than average.

...and I wasn't really let down either. I thought it was a really good kids film, and a nice little throwback to the original series. It was by no means the best film I saw this year, but it was still pretty good.
