Its jokes are profoundly bold and rude but incredibly funny at the same time.

[An] inspired, self-referential animated musical.
Genuinely outrageous and sometimes hilarious -- but size does eventually matter, and all-rounder Trey Parker just can't keep it up for the full 81 minutes.
Rude, but inspired.
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.
Possibly the single most subversive fact about the film is that all else being equal, it's one of the best original movie musicals in a generation.
Entertaining raunchfest; not for kids.
Manages to be both amazingly stupid and clever at the same time.
Both hysterically funny and frighteningly pertinent...
Nastier than it is subversive or funny.
Among other things, the South Park movie restores the happy shock and exuberance of talking dirty.
The best thing about this brilliant South Park movie is not that it is "longer," rather the fact that it is "bigger" and so ambitious: both as an incredibly hilarious comedy and as a musical full of awesome songs, while also upping the vulgarity seen on the TV show to a f***ing eleven.
South Park's jump to the big screen is very funny and makes many fine references, but there is a reason TV shows struggle in theaters. The writing usually wears thin due to films having a much longer runtime than TV episodes, and the scale of the stories are way too big and strange, both of which apply to this movie. However, buried in this chaotic mess is an honest message, hilarious moments and some catchy/clever show tunes. South Park is better on the small screen, but holds its own on the big one.
Ahh... with some good old sarcasm, crude humour and simply rude. Love it.
More than an extended episode, this is a full length, theatrical film that actually has a message and purpose. It's basically the same message that most of South Park, as a show, is comprised of: censorship is biased and comes from a place of irresponsible overreaction. Staying true to the show, established characters are strewn throughout the film, including the four boys the show is based upon, their families, friends, and the adults that screw up their world time and again. Uncensored and inappropriate in a muted kind of way, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone make this into a large scale epic film by making it a musical with numbers that spoof The Little Mermaid, Les Miserables, and Broadway in general. Parker and Stone capitalized on the fame of the show at its peak in 2001, not knowing it would be the long running vehicle that it has become. Saying that, it is amazing they didn't go farther with this, that they didn't go balls to the wall, even raunchier, even crazier. The film itself contains a war with our neighbors to the north, a relationship between Satan and Saddam Hussein, and a death toll at 312, including characters from the show. Since this film, some very horrific scenes have taken place on the show including pissing on tied up monkeys, Indiana Jones being raped by George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, and a waterpark being demolished by a typhoon of urine, so I don't say, underwhelming lightly. I will say that this film has a special place in my heart, right next to the juvenile humor and lackadaisical attitudes of my youth, which is when I first became acquainted with this show and all its vile glory. One of the songs, "Blame Canada," was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song, which was about the ill effects of censorship, though it could not be formally broadcast at the ceremony. The film, as a whole, is a great way to showcase the characters, and you will not be lost if you haven't seen the show. It might even be a great introduction to one of the more obscene shows on television, cartoon and all.
