South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut

All of your friends from the Colorado town of South Park are here for the big movie, and what a movie it is. Any boundary of tastelessness that South Park hasn't yet cross has been shattered. For those of you who don't know, South Park is a simple cartoon about Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, four kids living in South Park. The cartoon has outraged parents because of the subject matter. It is definitely not a cartoon for kids. It is also extremely funny, bitingly sarcastic, and a breath of fresh air.

Bigger, Longer, and Uncut, for those of you who don't know, has a double meaning. The original title was South Park: All Hell Breaks Loose, but the MPAA objected to the use of the word "hell." They also objected to a lot more in the movie, originally rating it NC-17. The movie is laced with almost non-stop cussing and sexual humor. Most of South Park is also a parody of creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's battle with the MPAA, enraged parents, and censorship.

All the kids on South Park love Canadians Terrence and Phillip. When their new R rated movie, Asses of Fire comes out, they sneak in, and hear new and inventive combinations of cuss words, and subsequently repeat them at school. Their parents hear of it, and become enraged. In a bizarre, yet hilarious series of events, war is declared on Canada, and it is up to the boys to save everything.

South Park is definitely not for the faint of heart or easily offended. There will be something in this movie that will offend everyone, but it is important to remember that it is a satire. And a damn funny one. Unexpectedly, South Park is also a musical, filled with funny and offensive songs. The jokes and parodies will leave you rolling in your seats. South Park is everything that Austin Powers wanted to be and more.

Haro rates it: Pretty Good
1 hour, 23 minutes, Rated R for nonstop foul language, crude sexual humor, and some violence.
