The first family of the Fox Television series The Simpsons makes a big screen debut as a feature-length movie. In this case, their trademark irreverent humor springs from Homer (voice of Dan Castellaneta) accidentally polluting a river with toxic waste, which floods into a state of emergency for the citizens of Springfield.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Simpsons Movie...
Parents can expect content very similar to the kind encountered in The Simpsons television series. Homer Simpson, the father of the family, is often rude to his wife and children, yet usually ends up apologizing, recognizing his folly (to some degree), and echoing his wife’s determination to maintain their marriage. However, he is physically abusive to his son Bart (attempting to strangle him when he misbehaves), and lies when the police ask him if he dared his son to skateboard naked through their town (Bart is briefly shown from the front, completely nude). A naked Bart is handcuffed to the lamppost and made a public spectacle. Infrequent violence is portrayed with people hitting each other, and police being hit with their own bullets. A few moments of sexual innuendo are also included, as well as a scene where Homer and Marge are seen in their underwear (sexual activity is implied). References are made to homosexuality (including the depiction of two male police officers kissing), and bestiality (a man considers kissing a pig), and offensive comments are directed towards Christians, Buddhists, and homosexuals. Scatological humor, infrequent mild profanities, terms of deity, and two rude anatomical terms are used. A secondary character is shown smoking illegal drugs and Bart drinks hard liquor and becomes intoxicated.
