Overview

The most tasteless third graders on television graduate to the big screen, as Trey Parker and Matt Stone expand their animated series with foul-mouthed humor that might breach the boundaries of basic cable. In the small Colorado town of South Park, good-natured Stan Marsh, slightly neurotic Kyle Broflovski, fat and petulant Eric Cartman, and perpetually doomed Kenny McCormick are psyched for the premiere of the first feature film from flatulent Canadian TV performers Terrance and Phillip, entitled "Asses of Fire." The movie is rated R, but that's not about to stop the boys from sneaking into the theater. However, when the boys' language gets bluer by the minute after seeing the film, their parents and school administrators decide that something must be done. Kyle's mother comes up with the ideal solution: blame Canada. Terrance and Phillip end up in jail for corrupting America's youth, while the Canadian Air Force retaliates with an air strike targeting the Baldwin brothers. The boys soon organize a children's underground resistance force to free Terrance and Phillip before they can be executed; meanwhile, in a sensitive subplot exploring relationship issues, we're permitted an inside look at the domestic problems of Satan and his lover, Saddam Hussein. As on the TV show, Parker and Stone perform the voices of most of the characters, and they also wrote several songs for the film; George Clooney, Minnie Driver, Eric Idle, Dave Foley, and Mike Judge contribute voices. Not to spoil the plot, but rumor has it that Kenny dies.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Easily the most outrageous animated feature film spawned by a TV series, South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut flogs innumerable victims with its satirical lash, and does so with cheerful, unapologetic subversiveness. Kyle, Stan, Cartman, and Kenny sneak into a Canadian-made (R-rated!) film starring the irrepressible Terrence and Philip. When the boys emulate their foul-mouthed faves, the entire town rises in protest and eventually instigates a war with Canada -- much to the delight of hell-bound lovers Sadam Hussein and Satan, who would love to use the conflict to conquer earth. Mayhem ensues. To top it all off, the movie's also a musical...of sorts. The hilarious songs, penned by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone (with help from Hollywood vet Marc Shaiman), come complete with sprawling dance sequences and include comic takes on everything from the mythic adventures of figure skater Brian Boitano to patriotic anthems, like the Oscar-nominated "Blame Canada." Bigger, Longer, and Uncut might be tasteless, as its detractors have contended, but it's also easily the most audacious animated film recently produced in this country.
All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
There are two distinct reasons that South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut should be appreciated. First, it is one of the few major Hollywood releases that directly addresses the way the entertainment industry and parents both shape youth culture. The satire on this point is sharp and uncompromising. The adults recognize the Terrence and Phillip movie for what it is -- stupid and vulgar. Instead of discussing it with their kids, the parents choose a scapegoat. Secondly, this is one of the best movie musicals of the '90s. Trey Parker, working closely with soundtrack guru Marc Shaiman, created a dozen original songs that spoofed popular music, and, more impressively, beloved Broadway musicals like Les Miserables and The Sound of Music. Their Oscar nomination for Best Song was a (probably grudging) acknowledgement that they had crafted songs that added characterization and advanced the plot, while also working as both parody and entertainment even when removed from the context of the film. Not for the faint of heart or the easily offended, South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut is a hybrid of styles rarely seen in movies. It is both an uncompromising satire, and a brilliant musical.
