Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (55 ):
Kids say (226 ):

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.
