OK, let's get all the disclaimers out of the way first. Despite its colorful (if crude) animation, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is in no way meant for kids. It is chock full of profanity that might even make Quentin Tarantino blanch and has blasphemous references to God, Satan, Saddam Hussein (who's sleeping with Satan, literally), and Canada. It's rife with scatological humor, suggestive sexual situations, political incorrectness, and gleeful, rampant vulgarity. And it's probably one of the most brilliant satires ever made. The plot: flatulent Canadian gross meisters Terrance and Philip hit the big screen, and the South Park quartet of 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. It's up to the kids then to rescue their heroes from execution, not mention a brooding Satan, who's planning to take over the world.
To give away any more of the plot would destroy the fun, but this feature-length version of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Comedy Central hit is a dead-on and hilarious send-up of pop culture. And did we mention it's a musical? From the opening production number "Mountain Town" to the cheerful antiprofanity sing-along "It's Easy, MMMKay" to Satan's faux-Disney ballad "Up There," Parker (who wrote or cowrote all the songs) brilliantly shoots down every earnest musical from Beauty and the Beast to Les Misérables. And in advocating free speech and satirizing well-meaning but misguided parental censorship groups (with a special nod to the MPAA), Bigger, Longer & Uncut hits home against adult paranoia and hypocrisy with a vengeance. And the jokes, while indeed vulgar and gross, are hysterical; we can't repeat them here, especially the lyrics to Terrance and Philip's hit song, but you'll be rolling on the floor. Don't worry, though--to paraphrase Cartman, this movie won't warp your fragile little mind. Unless you have something against the First Amendment. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

So if you like it fast and raunchy, get a big bag of popcorn, a nice cold soda, and take a few deep breaths cause you will LAUGH!!!
The highlight of Asses Of Fire is the great song Uncle F that has everybody singing along to the grand finale of Asses Of Fire, a feast of flatulence. When the urchins start swearing, the mothers and teachers of course pick it up. Soon, the cause of the bad influence is established: Terrance and Philip, and Canada in general. Concern spreads across the USA and soon it's on network news, where they even show a clip of a hip hop version of Terrance And Philip's aforementioned hit song.
The school does its best to persuade the children to use decent alternatives instead of swear words, in a lovely singalong number. After that, the kids go see Asses Of Fire again. Emerging from the theatre, the luckless Kenny, inspired by Terrance and Philip, lights a wind and catches fire. He's taken to hospital but after an unsuccessful operation, Kenny succumbs. In the meantime, the mothers are organising, forming the organisation Mothers Against Canada to combat the toilet humour running rampant.
Next thing, Terrance and Phillip are arrested during a TV interview. This leads to an angry exchange between the Canadian and US ambassadors at the UN. This is very funny, especially where all the delegates laugh at the Canadian ambassador. The Canadian Airforce responds by bombing the Baldwin residence in Hollywood. In South Park, the people burn Canadian products, including an Alanis CD.Read more ›
Parker's humor is sharp and it cuts through all the layers of hardened feces that surround any given issue. It is wholesome irreverence. South Park is not just "potty" humor. It's intelligent, socially relevant, taboo-crushing, politically saavy potty humor. Trey Parker is the Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill of modern cinema. Okay, I am stretching. But the point is, there's more going on here than farting and cussing, although I must say that all of the profanity is masterful.
The point hammered home in the feature film is that the MPAA is a joke and that the ratings system in this country is completely screwed up. More importantly, this film exposes a culture that embraces violence of all sorts, but abhors dirty words. All sorts of other hypocricy and stupidity are joyously acknowledged and then put to music. This movie is downright subversive and one of the funniest I have ever seen.

Bought for a friend as I own it. If you like South Park, more is even better! Quite old now so ties in with the early series, a great excuse to revisit them.Published on March 2 2013 by M. Hazle
