This magnificent musical revolves around the fortunes of Terrance and Phillip, the great Canadian TV and movie stars. One Sunday, the little South Park urchins see their movie Asses Of Fire and are completely bowled over. The animation is perfect as it captures the boys' rapt attention in the movie house. The boys are accompanied by a little baby, who mouths all the swear words in the cutest way.
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.
While this is going on, Kenny goes to hell where he encounters a sad Satan and an amorous Saddam. The urchins form La Resistance, a resistance movement, and they get the help of the debonair Christo, the Mole. The plan is to rescue Terrance and Philip during the USO Show for the troops. The show itself is hilarious, with appearances by Yippy the Dog, Winona Ryder and Big Gay Al singing Everything Is Super.
As T & P are about to be executed, the Canadians attack and mayhem ensue. In this chaos, Saddam and Satan appear, but a wiser and sadder Satan soon returns to hell. All's well that ends well, everybody comes to life again and the movie ends with a spectacular song.
There are many subplots too, like the love affair between one of the urchins and Wendy. For a while, it looks like she's falling for the preppie-like Gregory but in the end she returns to her boy, causing him to vomit violently from an attack of the nerves.
But the stars of the movie are definitely Terrance and Philip as we see them in their blockbuster movie Asses Of Fire, on their TV show, being interviewed on TV and in the video for their hit song, Uncle F. South Park is one of the funniest, most irreverent movies I've ever seen. It stunned and delighted me.
