4.0 out of 5 stars Religiously stirring, 15 Aug. 2010
This review is from: South Park: Passion of the Jew [DVD] (DVD)
Unlike with Imaginationland, this is not a feature length film with 2 bonus episodes. It is actually 3 normal 22 minute length episodes and Passion of the Jew is the leading episode. All of the episodes are centred around religion with Passion of the Jew being about how the Jews affected the crucifixion of Christ, Red hot Catholic love being about Catholic priest paedophilia and Christian rock hard (which has to be a sexual innuendo!) being about Cartman's Christian rock band.
I was happy to see Kenny in all of the episodes whereas with the Imaginationland DVD he was only in 1 of the 3 episodes. The episodes are somewhat controversial and should be taken with a sense of humour, just like all South Park`s ventures.

The leading title The passion of the Jew is about Cartman trying to convince Kyle that Jew's are evil because he has seen Mel Gibson's movie The passion of Christ and this is proof. Kyle disagrees with him until he goes to see it and effected badly by the movie. Stan and Kenny go along to see it but it has the opposite affect on them and when they visit Mel Gibson for a refund we get to see the man himself (in a bad impression). Cartman starts up a club which turns into a Hitler influenced (and certainly not hidden) protest against Jews, with genocidal motive. There is a good message at the end.
Red hot Cathloic love is a pretty dodgy episode but is still enjoyable about paedophilia amongst Catholic priests. It's humorous when all the Catholic priests get together and instead of solving the problem they just want to stop the boys from blabbing about it. No need to fear though because the Priest of south park saves all.
Christian rock hard is my favourite of the three. Cartman bets Kyle that he can sell a platinum album before Kyle does so starts up a Christian band. My favourite joke has to be Cartman stereotyping the black kid saying that he is starting a band up and tells the boy to go down to his basement and find a bass. When the boy disagrees he says 'You're black every black family has a bass in their basement'. Then when the band rehearse the boy says to Cartman he can't play bass and Cartman says 'What did I tell you of course you can play bass?' and the boy plays the instrument awesomely!

The DVD is a great watch and I think every fan of South Park will enjoy it, no matter if it's religiously controversial or otherwise. Unlike with the Imaginationland DVD there are no extras though. An enjoyable watch with some very funny moments.
