South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (1999)

Director: Trey Parker

Writers: Trey Parker & Matt Stone and Pam Brady

Stars: Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Mary Kay Bergman, Isaac Hayes,   Jesse Brant Howell,  Anthony Cross-Thomas


The parents of the South Park kids, incensed at the detrimental influence of Terence and Philip's new movie on their children, spearhead a movement to execute the Canadian flatulence artists, thereby provoking a military confrontation with our neighbor to the north and possibly apocalypse itself.  


Although it runs out of steam toward the end, this film is frequently a brilliant satire. 


Many have mentioned its digs at censorship, but I think that it is much more perceptive as a comment on how American parents so often abdicate responsibility for raising their own children and blame other sources, such as movies, for juvenile misbehavior.
