Non-stop laughs and some very good songs

Posted : 4 years, 1 month ago on 28 October 2013 08:30

It took 'The Simpsons' 18 years to finally make their movie and it was an animated masterpiece

It took 'South Park' 2 years to finally make their movie and it was a hilarious animation (and they made it before 'The Simpsons Movie')

'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut' is full of non-stop laughs, much like 'Borat', it is incredibly rude, filthy, offensive, funny, funny, funny and funny

No doubt that if they'd had the Oscar® for Best Animated Feature as long as Best Short Animated Film, 'Toy Story', 'Toy Story 2', 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' and 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' would've all been nominees and maybe even 'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut'

It is frequently hilarious (especially Cartman who is always hilarious in the cartoon) and the songs are very well written

'Beavis and Butt-head' and 'Futurama' are also adult cartoons with animated movies but I'm not convinced they can beat 'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut' or 'The Simpsons Movie'

Why can't 'South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut' and 'The Simpsons Movie' get sequels, an abysmal internet series 'Fred' got THREE movies!!!

To conclude, it is really hilarious and is worth your time

A good movie

Posted : 4 years, 1 month ago on 23 October 2013 07:30

Even though it took the makers of the Simpsons almost a full decade to finally come up with a full length feature, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were much quicker to release a South Park movie and released it when the show was on the heights of its popularity. To start with, I never really cared about ‘South Park’ the TV show. I mean, when it started, I heard about the whole buzz and of course, I had to check it out but I wasn’t really impressed. Indeed, I did like the minimalistic style of the animation but I didn’t care much about the humor. It is not that I found it offending (it is but it is also the whole point) but, except for Cartman who is always constantly hilarious, I don’t think it was really funny. Basically, you have a bunch of kids swearing all the time and doing some gross stuff and, in my opinion, it grows thin pretty quickly. Personally, I think that The Simpsons are 100 times better but that’s me. So, with this in mind, I was frankly not expecting much with this full length feature but, to my surprise, I actually really enjoyed it. Indeed, they kept the swearing and gross factor but I thought that the satire was actually really good and the plot was actually decent and rather smart which was really unexpected. To conclude, even though I don’t care about the TV show at all, I actually liked this flick which says at a lot and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut review

Posted : 6 years ago on 11 December 2011 05:44

Wow, this movie is totally forgettable. At least, it is for me, as I know I saw it last year, and I am sitting here watching it now, and nothing looks familiar at all. If you're a big "South Park" fan, then this is definitely one to see, but if you mostly don't care about the show and don't go out of your way to see it, then I guess, don't bother.

I can't remember seeing anything that I am watching right now, but I can't say that I want to spend a second more of my time watching it again just in the hopes that it will job my memory. It's pretty much just a very long episode, and I can only stand (barely) watching the episodes.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut review

Posted : 6 years, 1 month ago on 18 October 2011 04:07

For the most part, I don't like South Park. I don't like the fact that the show is a self-indulgent, ham-fisted preachfest that sacrifices story and characters for moral and message, and I don't like the implied smugness of the show's creators. But had you asked my opinion 10 years ago, I would have given you the complete opposite reaction. I loved South Park to the point of obsession, and I still do love the show's old episodes. Matt and Trey knew how to invoke their message properly and with tact, while taking the time to develop a unique and hilarious story to guide the message. South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is the most beautiful, amazing example of this.

Talk about a creative way to get across the message "Censorship is bad": creating a fucking musical! Matt and Trey guide us through the four boys' odyssey to stop their overbearing censorship-obsessed parents from executing Terrance & Philip and save the world from Satan and Saddam Hussein from taking over the world...through song and dance. And let me tell you, the songs in this movie are so damned catchy that they make even the most unforgettable earworm Disney songs sound forgettable in comparison. Out of nowhere, "Mountain Town" or "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch" will just pop into my head and remain there for WEEKS.

SP: BLU is a must-see for...well, anyone who can appreciate hilarious biting satire and disgustingly catchy musical numbers.

Non-stop hilarious and witty

Posted : 7 years, 1 month ago on 31 October 2010 08:13

"Is Terrance and Philip affecting America's youth? Here with that report is a midget in a bikini."


South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is precisely as advertised. Playing out with a length that's equal to three episodes of the popular television show, this feature-length expansion allows the proverbial South Park characters the latitude to let their mouths run rampant without profanities being censored. See, unlike other cartoon shows such as the Rugrats which were adapted for full-length features, South Park legitimately needed a big-screen treatment free of the restraints of television. Fortunately, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut manages to retain the charm of the show. The animation style is identical, the characters retain their normal cadence, and the story is appropriately goofy, vulgar and lacking in both class and tact - all traits which made the show such a hit. Sure, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut cannot be given a high star rating due to any kind of artistic merit, but films this non-stop hilarious and witty are few and far between.



In the sleepy town of South Park, the new Terrance & Phillip movie has premiered in theatres. When the typical protagonists of the series - Stan (Parker), Eric (also Parker), Kyle (Stone) and Kenny (Stone again) - watch the R-rated motion picture, they learn every unspeakable word in the English language. Afterwards, they predictably repeat all of these words at school ad nauseum. Infuriated by the influence that Terrance & Phillip - two Canadian actors - have had on their children, the concerned local parents form a group called Mothers Against Canada (M.A.C.) which leads to an all-out war between America and Canada. Eventually this culminates in nothing less than an Armageddon, with Satan and Saddam Hussein (don't ask) perceiving the impending execution of Terrance & Phillip as the final sign of the apocalypse.


Surprisingly, there's a subtext behind the narrative: the boys are on the side of freedom of speech, while the parents are not against solving problems with violence. Jesus, South Park has something substantial to say?! Who would've thought? What's also surprising is the cohesiveness of the plot. Episodes of the television show have less than 25 minutes to resolve a plotline, thus this feature-length expansion could deal with a plotline that's far more epic in scope because there was a lot more time to sort it out. It should come as no surprise to learn that South Park co-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were at the reigns here - Parker directed while the pair shared the screenwriting, production and voice credits. Their trademark attacks on popular culture are very much in evidence throughout the film. Additionally, the duo managed to get a number of recognisable stars for voice cameos, including Eric Idle, Brett Spiner, Minnie Driver and George Clooney.



A hybrid movie if there ever was one, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut essentially marries animation with adventure and musical elements. Surprisingly, the movie is first and foremost a musical, albeit a demented Disney-style musical. After all, the whole point of using the animation format is to parody the Disney approach, and the crew did a highly effective job here. Written by Parker and Hollywood composer Marc Shaiman, the song lyrics are blisteringly funny due to their pervasive wit and obvious disdain for the concept of political correctness. There are over half a dozen musical numbers throughout the film's 80-minute duration, and Disney can only wish that their songs were as insanely catchy as this. The only drawback with South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is that it runs a tad too long, and it does lose momentum from time to time during the lead-up to the climax.


While the South Park television show pushed the boundaries of how much bad taste can be portrayed on television, Parker and Stone dispensed with the niceties for this feature and went for the jugular. Parker and Stone are equal opportunity offenders - they skewer everyone and everything, and are never subtle about it. From religion to sexual preference to race, nothing is safe from these guys. There are a lot of satirical thrusts struck against a diverse array of victims, including (but not limited to) small town American, the MPAA and its rating system, middle class family values, Canada, the Baldwin Brothers and Bill Clinton. Heck, even Bill Gates is shot in the head at one stage. Loaded with a non-stop barrage of obscenities and profanities, including almost 150 uses of the f-word alone, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is so much the opposite of "cute n' cuddly" animated films that it's impossible not to laugh with an equal measure of shock and glee at both the craziness and brazenness of the whole enterprise.



Obscene, offensive, and absolutely gut-bustingly hilarious, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut will not appeal to every taste. Sensitive viewers are advised to stay clear of the film, while those unfamiliar with South Park should approach with caution. Those who adore the television show, however, are destined to be enthralled and delighted by this feature.

8.7/10

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut review

Posted : 7 years, 4 months ago on 13 August 2010 10:43

It's marvelous how a film of mindless animation can catch the attention of many - of those who are followers and those who are against it (for the matured content). This animation is rude, vulgar and insulting, and yet strangely, entertaining. It is definitely not the typical Disney level film, served for family values. However, the film can still draw fans together to laugh silly at the daring humor thrown into the film.
