A review of South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is an animated musical comedy film based on the television animation South Park created by Matt Stone and Trey Parker. It was theatrically released in 1999 and produced by Paramount Pictures in association with Comedy Central.

Synopsis

Plot
After Stan, Kenny, Kyle and Cartman saw the new R-rated Terrance and Phillip film 'Asses of Fire', they begin to replicate the profanity in the film, which causes their parents to wage war against Canada for the corruption of their children.
With their parents waging World War III, it's up to the boys to save Terrance and Phillip before Saddam Hussein and Satan rise from Hell to take over the world and end existence as they know it. Trivia
Trey Parker directed the film whilst starring alongside other regular voice cast from the series including Matt Stone and Isaac Hayes (Chef).
The South Park movie soundtrack includes songs by Parker and Marc Shaiman (additional lyrics by Stone).

General Information

Awards/Nominations
South Park Bigger Longer and Uncut received generally positive reviews when it was released and gained an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for 'Blame Canada' (sadly losing out to Phil Collins' composition for Disney's Tarzan).
The film's use of profanity earned a Guinness World Record in 2001 for 'Most Swearing in an Animated Film', which is hardly surprising in a film that focuses on mocking censorship and overblown reactionary responses to bad language and violence on television. General Acclaim
As well as satirising the controversial nature of the television series, the film also pays homage to mainstream musicals such as Les Misérables and Disney animations.
Even respected composers such as Stephen Sondheim have expressed their approval for the south park movie and it's songs. Final Opinion
If you are not a fan of the South Park television series, then this film is not going to appeal to you since it is more destined to fans of the series and other similar musicals.
Even the most anti-musical person would be hard-pressed not to hum 'What Would Brian Boitano Do' after the film is over.
Running at only an hour and twenty one minutes, the film does fly by, but you get value for money with the themes of racism, censorship, politics and ideologies all wrapped up in a hilarious, well-drawn, well-written and beautifully scored production.
