[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.

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.

It's without any redeeming social value whatsoever. And it's funny from beginning to end.

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

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.

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

South Park has a gag-to-laugh ratio even higher than the new Austin Powers.

The quite clever satirical moments in this crudely animated filth fest, though, are not remotely worth being dragged through the cinematic sewer.

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.

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.

Parker and Stone are madly inventive when it comes to details.

A more clever diversion than anyone had any right to expect!

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.

South Park is profoundly stupid, but given the times it has guts.

Raunchy, riotously irreverent and thrillingly rangy!

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.

In terms of raw wit and fearless satire, the South Park kids put Mike Myers and Adam Sandler to shame.
