Science in The Simpsons Movie
The Simpsons Movie will be coming out soon on DVD. Like the series it features wonderful references to science, including genetic mutations (a multi-eyed squirrel!), environmental catastrophe, a rock and a hard place, strange inventions, cycling around the inside of a dome without falling off and so forth. Although my book What's Science Ever Done for Us? was written before the movie was first released, it includes a "handy science checklist" for what to look for when watching it.
