Howled like a banshee, I did. But I felt really guilty about it, so maybe I won't go straight to hell -- where, as it happens, about a third of the movie takes place.

One of the sharpest satirical movies of the '90s as well as the best musical comedy in at least 20 years?
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

Though the more politically correct will want to be righteously offended at the on-screen antics and certifiable bad taste slapping us in the face, there's just enough truth and bite in the script to mollify those concerns.

Far tauter, more a laser-guided contraption than the often scattershot episodes of the series.

It's impossible not to find most of it hilarious and thought-provoking.

The satirical message is that the moral defenders of impressionable American youth would literally rather see violent death than obscenity, but Parker and Stone end up delivering both in overabundant quantities to prove their point.

There are some good visuals and a fairly good storyline, but all of these qualities are very uneven. Nothing, except high energy and edginess, are maintained very long.

It runs for just 88 minutes but contains more ideas (and with 20 tracks, a lot more music) than three other movies put together.

You can't shake the feeling that 60 minutes of comedy has been stretched and teased and goosed to make 80 minutes of movie.

A quarter of an hour would have been plenty of time with these tart-tongued tiny tots.

Profane, blasphemous and absolutely hilarious, Bigger, Longer & Uncut is easily the funniest of all the high-profile comedies released this year!

Even clean-thinking people may be tempted to admit that the thing is shamelessly, raucously hilarious!

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut turns out to be the funniest, most risk-taking, most incisive movie of the summer!

Although some will see this rude, crude comedy as the work of Satan himself, others will see the sharp, wildly funny social satire behind the profanity and potty jokes.

Raunchy, riotously irreverent and thrillingly rangy!

You can't get around it sometimes: a swear word is all that will do. This is one of those cases.

I was reasonably sure I was going to enjoy the film; what I didn't expect was a first-rate satire of censorship and the kind of political hysteria that currently threatens to create it.

Certain, probably arrested, personalities (like mine) just find this kind of sh*t pretty funny and any attempt to talk your way around that is, as Cartman would say, blowing bubbles out your *ss.

Yes, it's offensive and rude and lewd and I don't feel comfortable with the idea that kids are probably going to have access to it, but ... man, it's funny!
