South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is an American film following on from the animated series South Park. In this movie, the four boys see a Canadian adult comedy movie, and when their parents find out, they feel that their children have been corrupted by the film, so they end up declaring war on Canada.

Just to get things straight, I’ve never liked South Park. I find it annoying, unfunny and pretty pointless, but I tried to watch this movie as open-minded as possible.

However, they decided to make it a musical. I hate musicals too, so that made it a lot more irritating to watch. Also, the plot line actually just went too far, and was way too preposterous. Declaring war on Canada over a comedy movie? I just did not find that funny at all.

I know of the constant Canada-bashing that South Park gives, but I just thought that this was a step too far, and it just was not a funny film, and to top off the ridiculous ‘political’ humour, they made Saddam Hussein best friends with Satan!?

There was of course, the odd joke that I found quite funny, but it was unable to make up well for the fact that this was just a really painful film to watch, so that’s why it gets a 6 from me.
