How many of these Simpsons film references did you spot?


For cinephiles, The Simpsons stands as a goldmine of film references, paying homage to the great, the good and the downright niche of cinema throughout its 27 seasons. 

Sometimes even shot for shot, many of its greatest nudges and winks have been encapsulated in this side-by-side video by Madrid-based Vimeo whizz Celia Gomez, who has paired the original films alongside the visual tips of the hat from the Simpsons' creators.

What's more, separating the Steven Spielbergs from the Señor Spielbergos, it also gives you a chance to count how many film references you might have missed.

Let us know how you get on below (and be honest).
