What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Something to offend everyone.
Positive Role Models
You would not want your kids to emulate any of the actions here.
Violence & Scariness
Frequent violence, often at the expense of celebrities. The Baldwin brothers are bombed to death. Bill Gates is shot in the face. Conan O'Brien commits suicide. Brooke Shields is slapped in the face. One character hits another with a chair. Kenny is presumed dead after attempting to light his flatulence on fire and suffering severe burns; he is shown in the hospital getting surgery; blood.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Explicit. Frequent references to sexual acts. In one scene, "Winona Ryder" shoots ping-pong balls out of her vagina. While in bed with Satan, Saddam Hussein pulls out a large life-like penis (not animated). Kids watch porn involving fecal matter on a computer; it's not shown but clearly heard and understood. A boy with a crush on a girl is advised, "You gotta find the clitoris." Later, a giant clitoris appears with more advice for the boy about how to get the girl to like him.

While satirical in intent, there is incessant and unrelenting profanity, often used by kids. Just about every curse word in the book is used -- and then some. In addition to all the expected four-letter words and their offshoots, words such as "f--got" and "darkie" are used, and the word "Jew" is used in a negative way. Some families may be offended by one character calling God a "f--got" and saying "God is the biggest bitch of them all." Over 100 uses of "f--k."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut is a 1999 feature-length version of the popular animated series; this movie is much raunchier and more explicit than the TV series and anything else a child (or, for that matter, a parent) is likely to have seen. Strong language (often used by kids) is as rampant as the dark humor, and there are crass sexual references galore. Celebrities are bombed to death, are shot in the face, and commit suicide, and another celebrity is shown shooting ping-pong balls from her vagina. One character makes obscene and blasphemous remarks about God. Kids give a homeless man money for vodka in exchange for him posing as their "guardian" who lets them in to see an R-rated movie in a theater. The profanity and obscenity are taken to the utmost limit, and, as such, this is not something for kids.

Is It Any Good?
Parents may think that nothing can be more outrageous than the South Park television show, with its macabre humor, strong language, and singing poop. They need to understand that this theatrical release is much, much more outrageous and inappropriate for kids. Clever -- but not for kids.
The movie has some sharp satire and genuine wit amid the over 100 uses of "f--k" and references to every kind of bodily function and singing sex organ. But any parent considering allowing a teen to see the movie should watch it first, as it is much raunchier and more explicit than anything else the child (or, for that matter, the parent) is likely to have seen.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
