Then he killed many in congress before he blew up the United States Capitol in the air. U.S. president came and asked him out but was beheaded by Mr. Smith. He was then honored by the kids and left his title.
A test screening was done in Springfield in Aztec Theater in which the film was acclaimed by all except Homer Simpson. Mel Gibson then searched him up. Homer suggested that the introduction to the film would rewind and it would also have a musical montage where Mr. Smith try on lots of funny hats but Mel Gibson don't wanted that. He also wanted to replace the villain with a dog. The filibuster scene was Jimmy Stewart 's favorite but not Homer, it was too little action there for him. The movie was going to be the studio's prestige picture. Both William Milo and Robyn Hannah liked the movie better before Homer came and changes the film. Afterwards thought Edward Christian it was worse than The Godfather Part III and did not want the movie to appear. Homer and Mel managed to take care of the film before it was burned up and got it released in theaters.
The film was poorly received by viewers and Homer regretted not taking the villain dog.
