South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

MPAA Rating: R

Entertainment: +2

Content: -4

Dont let the animation fool you. SOUTH PARK is one of the vilest things to ever come out of Hollywood. In the film four boys, Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman, sneak into an R-rated movie, followed eventually by their entire third grade class. The children begin to repeat the foul language and crude behavior depicted in the vulgar film. Imitating one scene in the film, Kenny accidentally lights himself on fire, dies after a botched surgery, and goes to hell. The adults in the small town are outraged and look for someone to blame for the corruption of their innocent children. They capture the actors in the film, demanding a public execution. But the third-graders come to their defense in the name of free speech. Fans of the cable show SOUTH PARK may be drawn to this irreverent and cynical spoof about the battle over perceived media censorship. But, candidly speaking, only lovers of evil could possible enjoy this film.

With a vicious adolescent rebellion, the makers of SOUTH PARK show the MPAA, the US and Canadian government, conservatives, the Church and God what they think about moral accountability. With more crudities and obscenitiesthey particularly cater to the f-wordthan could be counted, offensive words easily number into the triple digits. The screenwriters obvious deep-seated hatred for God is displayed, as Satan is called God and God is called unspeakable obscenities. We see Sadam Hussein and Satan in bed together having unconventional sex, racist comments and a spoof of Nazi death camps, and a mockery of the existence of heaven and hell. Their version of heaven is a bunch of nude women. And their version of hell is a fiery cavern of torture ruled by a sensitive and misunderstood Satan. In one of the many crude sexual scenes, a woman does a crude sexual exhibition on stage. And the boys spend much of the movie inquiring about a very private part of the female anatomy. It is not necessary nor in good taste to record any more of the abominable activity in this film. The creators of SOUTH PARK irreverently mock and grossly abuse the freedoms for which they are supposedly fighting. PREVIEW urges Christians to boycott SOUTHPARK, the film and the cable show, and voice their concerns to its distributor.
