You Know It’s Bad When THEY Can’t Do It On TV


And so I begin my first comedy movie review. As I said in my previous article, I am all for crude comedies. One of the funniest one’s I’ve seen is South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut. Animation, foul language, and a topnotch soundtrack form the basis of this one of a kind film. Granted, the animation is spotty, but it is South Park, and that is their style that has worked wonders for them.

I feel like a lot of people overlook this movie because they do not regularly watch the television show. Honestly, you don’t have to watch the show vigorously or even at all. I watch it occasionally and always find myself cracking up when I do, so I decided to give the movie a try. As long as you know what you are getting yourself into (an don’t have little kids around), you will be able to follow this hilarious story.

Children swear, parents become outraged, and all hell breaks loose (literally)! Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of the series, are comedic geniuses. As crude and inappropriate as the TV show is, the movie takes it to a whole new level. The best thing about it is that they made the entire film into a musical! The songs are wonderful, ranging from Canada’s faults on the United States, to a love ballad between Satan and Saddam Hussein, and everything in between. One of them even received an Oscar nomination in 1999. It’s like the Disney movie I’ve always dreamed would be made.

If you can get past the coarse language and toilet humor, this movie is a must watch. I give it an 8 out of 10 on the Laugh Scale. Hate it or love it, you are still guaranteed to laugh out loud.
