Doesn't the title of the list explain it well enough? This is a list of 200+ quality "short" films. Easy…
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut
When the four boys see an R-rated movie featuring Canadians Terrance and Philip, they are pronounced "corrupted", and their parents pressure the United States to wage war against Canada.
Any film that has Saddam Hussein and Satan as gay lovers should win tons of awards.
I blame Canada they didn't win any.
Seen this so many times I can almost quote it verbatim, and it's probably had more of an influence on my sense of humor (for better or worse) than any other movie after how often I stayed up to watch it uncensored on Comedy Central in middle school. It never gets old either. The songs are all super (thanks for asking). The jokes remain as funny as ever and, combined with the creative social commentary, give a good sense of why the show has endured for so long. Plus those cameos and Michael fucking McDonald. This is the ultimate late night movie.
Hilarious from start to finish. Some moments reach the height of becoming absolutely classic. Not sure how it got away with some of its outrageously offensive content back in its day.
It has been so long since I saw this, I forgot just how absolutely and outrageously hilarious this is.
Blazing satire on the US government, censorship and freedom of speech, Trey Parker and Matt Stone must have felt as if they'd been through a meat grinder on their way to getting this to the screens.
Constant arguments with Paramount over context, content and the rating (which they were told would be an R originally) led to proposed lawsuits as as silly song and dance trailer was cut by paramount, intended to air on MTV, but mysteriously ended up in the boot of Parkers car. Both he and Stone hated it- cut for tone with all of the humor that infests…
Who needs Les Mis when you have the vulgar pint sized characters from televisions South Park belting out crude, casually racist melodies with enough gross out humour to make Tom Green blush! Making the giant leap to the big screen, South Park makes numerous self referential jokes using the Canadian "Terence and Phillip" as a fictional parallel in order to anticipate every parental hatred or complaint towards this gargantious 90 minutes of obscenities.
Insulting every domination in the book in one fell swoop, bigger longer uncut boasts grand ensemble showtunes making pansies of the military, making enemies of the Canadians and of course documenting the kindling romance between Saddame Hussain and Satan a lord of the underworld.
This movie never sells out it's source material giving beloved characters ample screen time, ever quotable lines and of course finally revealing Kenny's face.
South Park are clearly too good for the Tony's
Definitely not as offensive as I remember this movie being in my youth. Nonetheless, South Park set the bar in regards to vulgarity, crassness and gross out humour.
The story is not as good as even some of the episodes are at their best, but none can deny that this film has some truly hilarious moments and great musical numbers.
Shut your fucking face, uncIe fucka
You're a cock-sucking, ass-licking uncle fucka
You're an uncle fucka, yes, it's true
Nobody fucks uncles quite like you
Have you ever met my friend Kyle's mom?
She's the biggest bitch in the whole wide world
She's a mean old bitch and she has stupid hair
She's a bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch
Bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch
She's a stupid bitch
I blame Canada for two things after watching this again:
1. There was no Best Animated Feature category at the Oscars at the time of this movie's release so that this could take him the gold.
2. Tarzan beat this and Magnolia for Best Original Song.
More intelligent than I had anticipated, but South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is essentially just a prolonged and cruder version of something you can get for free on television.
Hilarious, bittingly smart, and effectively satirizing moral outrage, censorship, and movie musicals (while simultaneously being an excellent musical in its own right), South Park's film adaptation is as brilliantly irreverent as its TV counterpart.
Matt Stone and Trey Parker's South Park began in 1997 with the pilot "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe". Focusing on four young boys in the small mountain town of South Park, the show had been bashed by critics for obscene ridicule, mostly because it was presented by children. As it progressed, so apparently did critics' thoughts, noticing the show as brilliant satire, given it the clear to do a movie in 1999.
And so South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut begins with a musical number from the South Park boys featuring an upbeat family friendly soundtrack. They're going to see Asses of Fire: The new Terrance and Phillip movie. "It's a foreign film from Canada!", Stan exclaims to his mother.…
Si bien de South Park no he visto mucho, quería ver esta peli ya que de pequeño vi partes de este, y como mis padres me lo prohibían (cosa que no les achaco, es más, se lo agradezco), la dejé estar hasta que vi la oportunidad de verla.
Y debo decir que me siento satisfecho, las canciones son divertidas, memorables y pegadizas, el humor es burdo, para qué negarlo, sobre todo comparándolo con las últimas temporadas, donde se ha refinado (no en el sentido literal de la palabra) y acidado más esa intención critica que cada episodio de la serie posee.
En definitiva, diría que esta película marcó el antes y después de la serie, ya que a partir de…
Film #7 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge
15. Your go to film when you need cheering up!
The whole argument that this movie can cheer me up can be summarized in just one lyric: "Sure, life is kinda gay, but it doesn't seem that way, through the eyes of a child". South Park actually is childish, vulgar or any adjective a person that dislikes it can throw at it. It's also one of the most influential tv franchises of the past 20 years that dares to comment on any issues without boundaries. Sometimes inappropriate, usually cute, occassionally disgusting and more often than not genius.
Da la impresión de que el que se hiciera en los inicios de la serie pesa: el humor es más chabacano, más de hacer la burrada por la burrada cuando en los últimos años (me parece a mi) está más equilibrado con la buena crítica; pero vamos, tampoco pasa nada, divertidísima.
With hits like "Uncle F@&$er" and "Kyle's Mom", how can you not love this?!
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Chances are the first movie you ever saw was animation. Exuberant, colorful and full of wonder, animation is the stuff…
