South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
Wise-asses Trey Parker and Matt Stone skillfully avoid the lame pitfalls of most movies based on TV shows with this brisk, creative animated mixture of potty-humor and unusually shrewd cultural and social satire. The complicated, ingenious plot has the world on the verge of apocalypse after four children sneak into an R-rated movie and come out spewing foul language. Parker and Stone are tirelessly inventive both in vulgarity and lampooning just about everything. Most of the voices are provided by Parker and Mary Kay Bergman, with cameos by George Clooney, Minnie Driver, Eric Idle, and Isaac Hayes. Greate score by Marc Shaiman. Presented in a bright 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer and both DD 5.1 and 2.0 Dolby Surround. Despite rumors of hidden extras, this one only includes trailers. Keep case.
