TV tropes pointing out one big problem I had with The Simpsons movie.
Killing Homer was one thing. He, eh, had it coming, sorta.
But that shit with Marge and the kids and the five nooses was just plain creepy. Only Flanders (a moral person) seemed to realize how messed up it was and wanted to help them.
You 100% understand why Homer doesn’t want his family to go back and help them all later on. But he’s presented as being “in the wrong.” Um, they tried to murder his kids.
I’ve listened to the DVD commentary. They seem to subtly acknowledge how twisted it is, oddly enough.
