South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

Showtimes

Chock full of profanity, political incorrectness, scatological humor, gleeful vulgarity and blasphemous references to God, Satan, Saddam Hussein (who’s sleeping with Satan, naturally), and Canada, South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut is quite possibly one of the most brilliant satires ever made … and it’s a musical! Flatulent, foul-mouthed Canadian gross meisters Terrance and Philip are hitting the big screen in their first movie, and the South Park gang of raunchy third graders – Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman – begin repeating their profane one-liners ad infinitum. The parents of South Park, led by Kyle’s overbearing mom, form “Mothers Against Canada,” blaming their neighbors to the North for their children’s corruption and taking Terrance and Philip as war prisoners. Soon it’s up to the kids to rescue their beloved heroes from execution, while also battling a brooding Satan, who’s planning to take over the world! Filled with stinging political satire and dead-on send-ups of pop culture stupidity of all kinds, this over-the-top extravaganza (at heart a hilarious ode to freedom of speech) also showcases South Park-creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s surprisingly skilled musical chops with such Broadway-ready tunes as “It’s Easy, MMMKay,” ”Kyle’s Mom is a Big Fat Bitch,” and the Oscar-nominated hit “Blame Canada.” It’s all unbelievably raunchy, but don’t worry–to paraphrase Cartman, this movie won’t warp your fragile little mind. Unless you have something against the First Amendment.
