Storyline

After Lisa has captured the seamier side of Springfield life on her My Little Sony camcorder for her school video project Principal Skinner encourages her to make a documentary about her family 'Capturing the Simpsons',which is accepted for,and becomes a hit at,the Sundance Film Festival. It also shows the family at their very worst and their pride in Lisa is short-lived. Fortunately so are people's memories in the film world so that Nelson's movie about his sad home life soon replaces Lisa's film as a talking point. Written by don @ minifie-1

Enjoyable and Different Simpsons Episode,
8 July 2014 | by lesleyharris30See all my reviews

Any Given Sundance is a great Simpsons episode with a well written storyline and some very funny scenes.It was a very fun and different episode,I liked seeing Lisa make a documentary about her family and taking it to the Sundance Film Festival,the documentary was very funny and a lot of references to films were made at the festival as well.The highlights of the episode had to be Principal Skinner and Superintendent Chalmers production studio,every scene with them was so funny,my favourite part of the whole episode was definitely John C. Reilly's cameo as he talks to Skinner and Chalmers about having a part in their next film,I really appreciated this part.Any Given Sundance isn't the finest episode of the nineteenth season,but it's still a very enjoyable Simpsons episode.

The Simpsons are shocked and upset with Lisa when she makes a popular independent film for the Sundance Film Festival that displays them in a negative manner.
