Homer and the Boob Lady

The Simpsons Movie--The Times review

Our correspondent finds the big-screen debut for Homer and clan both hilarious and horrifyingly poignantAt the start of The Simpsons Movie Homer’s dreams of glory are limited to helping his new pet pig to walk upside down on the ceiling while singing “Spiderpig, Spiderpig” to the Spider-Man theme song.

But when the adopted swine gets him into bigger trouble than even this celebrated screw-up has ever experienced before, he falls under the influence of a chesty Native American woman he calls “Boob Lady” and undergoes an uncharacteristic epiphany that galvanizes him into action for the good of his by-now estranged clan.
Comment:  Another example of Native women as sex objects? We'll see.
