South Park is profoundly stupid, but given the times it has guts.
Very funny, extremely obscene.
| Original Score: 4/5
While there aren't more than a handful of gut-busting, laugh-aloud moments, there is enough sly, slick humor to keep the average viewer chuckling throughout.
| Original Score: 3/4
Parker and Stone are madly inventive when it comes to details.
The year's most slashing political commentary is not in the new films by Oliver Stone, David Lynch or John Sayles, but in an animated comedy about obscenity.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Loud, funny, crude and very rude.
| Original Score: 3/5
A few good jokes for every dozen groaners!
Irreverent, gross and childish!
The quite clever satirical moments in this crudely animated filth fest, though, are not remotely worth being dragged through the cinematic sewer.
Naughty words and images pile up like bodies in a Schwarzenegger movie until viewers are numbed by it all. And that's within the first half-hour.
Sadly, far too many viewers will be so engrossed (or grossed out) by the film's tasteless humour that they will miss the real important issues raised in this smart, if excessive, satire.
| Original Score: 74/100
The profanity for profanity's sake approach shows a lack of imagination when many in the past have used similar vulgarities with far more amusing and creatively pleasant results.
Hollywood can't get much raunchier than this, can it? If there's a buck to be made, it will.
| Original Score: C-
It is abundantly clear that Parker and Stone desperately want to be, or at least appear to be, subversive, but for the most part, this is kiddie subversion.
80 minutes of this boring animated comedy/musical feels so long that it will seriously test any moviegoer's patience!
It gets a lot right in its rambling, and gets a lot of laughs along the way.
| Original Score: 3/4
After Big Daddy, it's almost heartening to see a movie that's not afraid to be upfront about its coarseness, one that doesn't smother its very reason for being with hypocritical sentimentality.
Well done Trey and Matt!
A more clever diversion than anyone had any right to expect!
Despite the constant raunchiness, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut has a genuinely sweet undertone, complete with some very funny musical numbers so well integrated into the story that even the folks at Disney could learn something from them.
