South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is much raunchier and more explicit than the TV series and anything else their child (or, for that matter, the parent) is likely to have seen. Strong language is as rampant as the dark, immature-for-the-laughs humor, and there are crass sexual references.
What's the story?
Art imitates life, as the plot of SOUTH PARK: BIGGER, LONGER, AND UNCUT has its quartet of third graders sneaking into a Canadian R-rated movie and repeating the profanity they heard. This becomes so upsetting to the community that the US declares war on Canada. One of the children gets a V-chip implanted in his head that shocks him when he says something inappropriate. And Kenny, killed once again, ends up in Hell, where Satan and Saddam Hussain are homosexual lovers.
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 children and most teens.
The movie has some sharp satire and genuine wit amidst the over 100 uses of the f-word and references to every kind of bodily function and singing sex organs. But any parent considering allowing a child or teenager 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.
Families can talk about...
Families can talk about the sharp satire and cleverness that is buried beneath the crass jokes.
