South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
Movie Stats & Links

Starring: Stan Marsh, Eric Cartman, Kyle Broflovski, Kenny McCormick, Chef
MPAA Rated: R
Released By: Paramount Pictures
Kiddie Movie: The movie is rated R for a very good reason so I say leave the kids at home. That's pretty easy for me to say because I'm not a father, to the best of my knowledge, and I've never had to put up with whiney kids. If you do give in and bring Junior to the movie then you deserve to have a foul mouth little bastard for a kid. Don't go blaming the movie's makers, it was your choice to disregard the R rating.
Date Movie: Only if she is not easily offended by swearing, dildos, and a very large, magical clit living in the forest.
Gratuitous Sex: No, but Stan does find the clitoris, and Saddam and the Devil are in bed together.
Gratuitous Violence: Canada bombs the Baldwin's and Arquette's in Hollywood and the US attacks Canada in a bloody finale to the movie. But it's cartoon violence so that must make it okay!
Action: Kenny goes to Hell in a really cool animated scene, and the children of South Park form a resistance group, other than that not too much.
Laughs: Call me a sick little puppy but I laughed throughout the entire movie.
Memorable Scene: I still can't get the picture of Saddam Hussein waving a very realistic cartoon dildo while in bed with the Devil. Oh yeah… You get to see Kenny's face.
Memorable Quote: Lots, but the new version of "Kyle's Mom is a Big Fat Bitch" as sung by Cartman, and Terrance & Philip singing "Uncle Fucker" are still ringing in my head. Oh yeah… Kenny talks.
Directed By: Trey Parker
Produced By: Trey Parker & Matt Stone

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:20 Long

A Review by
Stu Gotz
I just got off the phone with my sister. She wanted to know what I thought about the new "South Park" movie and did I think it would be OK for my 11 year old niece to go and see. First I mentioned that it was a non-stop cuss-fest from start to finish. "Oh, I swear in front of her all the time. I'm sure she's heard worse," she replied. Ok… So then I went on to tell her that Saddam Hussein was doing the Devil in the ass with a dildo and little Stan finds a huge clit in the woods. Then there was silence for a long time. My sister then began to rant and rave "Don't they know kids are going to go see this?" My response to her was to remind her that it was rated R and therefore not intended for kids. "But it's a cartoon," she retorted.

Yes folks, "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" is a cartoon, but it is a cartoon intended for adults. Do you remember "Heavy Metal" and "Fritz the Cat" (or have I gotten that old)? They were also cartoons that were definitely meant for mature audiences only, and "South Park" is the same. My point being that just because it's a cartoon, that doesn't mean it's OK for kids. Parents should be mindful of that and take responsibility for what they allow their kids to be exposed to before the fact, and not overreact after the damage is done. In fact I dare say that it seemed the makers of this movie fully intended to make just that point.

"South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" (SPBL&U) is actually a well made animated movie. If you put aside the foul language and other naughty stuff the movie could actually compete with any Disney production out there. Be it the well made musical scenes or the simple flow of the movie without complicated plot scenarios, SPBL&U is everything that a animated Disney feature is. But considering its mature use of language and situations it is everything Disney is not. So what does that mean? It means that this movie is a great, destined to be a classic, satire. Much like "Young Frankenstein" put a comical and slightly sexual twist on the old story, SPBL&U is a great comic spoof and a "thumb on the nose" raspberry to Disney and all the critics out there who are not mature enough to get over the naughty stuff and see this movie for what it really is.

What's it about? Does it really matter? If you're a South Park fan you're gonna see it any way, but to put the story as simple as possible I'll just tell you that the South Park kids get into an R rated movie, start swearing a lot, Kenny gets killed, their parents blame the Canadians, Canada and the United States go to war, the Devil and Saddam Hussein wait for the apocalypse, and the world is saved by… I won't give that away, but fan or not I think this is a movie every adult should see because it is a well made satire and there hasn't been one of those in a long time. Then again, if you're the type of parent blaming your kid's problems on society, you probably won't get SPBL&U and will blame it for your kids problems too. Anyway, if you've got some cranky little kids giving you shit about seeing it, I hope I've told you enough to make your own decision. If not, read the stats and links below and decide from there.

I liked it. I give it 4 of 5 stars. I'm Stu Gotz, it's a great film! 'Nuff said.
