South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut [VHS] 
Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed
Big screen spin-off of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's animated comedy series. All is not well in South Park; Stan, Kyle, Cartmen and Kenny have started using some disgusting swear words after sneaking in to watch Canadian comedians Terrance and Phillip's 'R'-rated movie, 'Asses of Fire'. This prompts the boys' parents to begin an anti-filth campaign, kidnapping Terrance and Phillip and sentencing them to death. Canada reacts by bombing the Baldwin brothers, and war is declared between the two countries. Meanwhile, Kenny is killed ('You b*****ds!') after attempting to light one of his own farts, and is sent to Hell. Here he learns of a plan by Satan and his new lover Saddam Hussein to take over the world. Warning: this film is very offensive and should not therefore be seen by anyone.
Ok, let's get all the disclaimers out of the way first. Despite its colourful (if crude) animation, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is in no way meant for kids. It is chock full of profanity that might even make Quentin Tarantino blanch and has blasphemous references to God, Satan, Saddam Hussein (who's sleeping with Satan, literally), and Canada. It's rife with scatological humour, suggestive sexual situations, political incorrectness and gleeful, rampant vulgarity. And it's probably one of the most brilliant satires ever made. The plot: flatulent Canadian gross-meisters Terrance and Philip hit the big screen, and the South Park quartet of third graders--Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman--begin repeating their profane one-liners ad infinitum. The parents of South Park, led by Kyle's overbearing mom, form "Mothers Against Canada", blaming their neighbours to the north for their children's corruption and taking Terrance and Philip as war prisoners. It's up to the kids then to rescue their heroes from execution, not mention a brooding Satan, who's planning to take over the world. To give away any more of the plot would destroy the fun, but this feature-length version of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Comedy Central hit is a dead-on and hilarious send-up of pop culture. And did we mention it's a musical? From the opening production number "Mountain Town" to the cheerful anti-profanity sing-along "It's Easy, MMMKay" to Satan's faux-Disney ballad "Up There", Parker (who wrote or cowrote all the songs) brilliantly shoots down every earnest musical from Beauty and the Beast to Les Misérables. And in advocating free speech and satirising well-meaning but misguided parental censorship groups, Bigger, Longer & Uncut hits home against adult paranoia and hypocrisy with a vengeance. And the jokes, while indeed vulgar and gross, are hysterical; we can't repeat them here, especially the lyrics to Terrance and Philip's hit song, but you'll be rolling on the floor. Don't worry, though--to paraphrase Cartman, this movie won't warp your fragile little mind. --Mark EnglehartSee all Product Description

I'll start off by adding, this release is region free and can be played on Region B Blu-ray players.
Subtitles include: English, French and Spanish.
Ultimately, it is presented in English 5.1 Dolby TrueHD
Some people elsewhere on forums have speculated whether or not the release comes with a slip-case, mine however did not, but it's subjective as to which seller you purchase this from I gather.
At first I was slightly skeptical on how South Park would fare on Blu-ray. However, the picture and sound quality is most certainly a grand improvement from the DVD, and is well worth the investment (under £10) and has very few albeit brilliant special features. These being, several trailers (TV spots, teasers etc), the "What would Brian Boitano do?" music video and an audio commentary with Matt and Trey themselves (which was recorded in 2009, specifically for this release I imagine) spanning the whole length of the film (as opposed to the five-minute commentaries on the season releases). The audio commentary, whilst fascinating and enlightening is slightly disappointing as the duo behind the brilliance seem to have forgotten working on the film and often bring crew members in to help refresh their memory, plus another gripe being Matt Stone having the incentive to constantly add "like" to after every other word that interjects from his mouth.Read more ›
For our four little heroes, politcal correctness simply has no place in their little part of Colorado.
After worming their way into an R-rated Canadian film of their very own hereos Terrance and Phillip (they blackmailed a tramp to act as their Guardian). The boys little minds appear to have been warped with endlesss swearing and disrespect. So what do the lads' parents decide to do? - well Kyle's mother really - they declare WAR on Canada! Well it's not a real country anyway! (the film will confirm) Terrance and Phillip are soon arrested after being tricked by Conan O'Brien when they appear on his show to promote and defend their film. The story then shifts to HELL, where Satan and Saddam Hussain plot to use Terrance and Phillip's plight, to take over the world. (Saddam was killed by a pack of Wild-Boars) The story concludes brilliantly via a purely selfish sacrifice.
Look out for 'The Mole' a French freedom-fighter who hates being grounded; Cartman's updated big-band remix of "Kyle's Mom's a bitch!" in D-minor; Saddam's endless lust for Satan and Big Gay Al's 'super' return.
This Cartoon Musical will be tough to beat. The songs are outstanding! Stephen Sondheim has been quoted as declaring it the best musical in years! Buy-it folks M'kay!!!
Let's be totally honest: it is also one of the rudest films of all time, introducing the world to a whole new lexicon of swearing, insults and crude, colourful language. It is, naturally, very, very funny.
But it is not just the swearing and trademark makeshift animation that escalates this film to cult status. The plot is nothing short of magnificent (and, writing in 2003, eerily prophetic). Without giving too much away, the four lads in the film (Cartman, Kenny, Kyle and Stan) sneak into a cinema to watch a smutty film starring two Canadian comedians, Terrance and Philip. The effect it has on their behaviour sends their parents up in arms, and a full-scale war with Canada develops. Satan and a dead Saddam Hussein feature, the latter having been killed by a pack of wild boars.
Not only was 'South Park' as controversial as it got a few years back, the furore surrounding this film at the time perfectly mirrored its plot within. Such is the cunning and near-genius of Parker and Stone. But it is not just a juvenile cuss-fest - its anti-war, anti-censorship, pro-family message, as well as its shrewd political commentary about race relations and the American military, makes it absolutely exemplary. It is a liberal's dream, a bigot's worst nightmare and, although it may not be one of modern cinema's crowning achievements, it sure feels like it is.
