(Review originally written at 2 April 2005)

Thing that surprised me most about "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut" was how incredible brilliant the entire movie was. Like most others I expected nothing more than an extended, average "South Park" episode. I was extremely surprised and overwhelmed by the total brilliance of the entire movie.

I'm not a that big fan of the "South Park" series, even though I really enjoy watching it from time to time, I wouldn't rate it any higher as an 8/10.

Probably thing that is most brilliant about "South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut" are the songs. I think it originally was intended as one big joke to make the movie a musical. I think the makers never expected the songs to be so totally brilliant and highly fun. Marc Shaiman really surpassed himself and did an amazing job. All of the songs are so totally brilliant, beautiful and extremely funny.

Also the story is really brilliant, I mean having Satan and Saddam Hussein being lovers in hell while the Americans are starting a war on the Canadians over the Terrence & Phillip movie "Asses of Fire"? Brilliant! It's totally ridicules but the message in it is important and works so extremely well, that the movie is really powerful as a political and anti-war movie. The movie might very well be the most entertaining movie with an important and powerful message in it, along with "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" I have ever seen.

All of the jokes work really well and makes this movie one of the funniest I have seen the last couple of years and is what makes this movie perfectly watchable time after time without loosing any of its power or entertainment value. I truly is one of those movie that I enjoy watching multiple times.

Powefull, very funny and with an important and well brought message. However if you couldn't stand the TV-series and its humor you better just simply skip this movie. My only complaint is that the movie is too short!
