It was a disapointment. And made me look again at South Park. I was never a big fan of South Park and this helped me understand why. Took me years for me to even bother to watch South Park or "get it". Unlike Sacha Baron Cohen's humour (for example), this humour does seem pointless, in the end. Or worse, even celebratory of what it's aimed at. One example is the theme song. And youtube comments prove me right. Sad!
Not as funny as I was lead to believe but it still had me laughing a whole lot. It's biggest problems is that it didn't have enough original jokes to fill up an entire hour and a half, it started feeling repetitive. However, that being said it was still funny, raunchy and entertaining. I did like the satire of it and the fact that it is an entire movie animated with puppets, that was impressive.
In my very honest opinion, Trey Parker and Matt Stone are the greatest modern satirists. They always have some of the most accurate, and hilarious insights into the days issues. This movie actually stays relevant to today, freedom still isn't fucking free rofl.
An incredibly clever film hidden by sheer stupidity. Parker/Stone absolute nail everything in their sites with a satirical mauling; American foreign policy, Hollywood activism, Terrorist stereotyping and the whole illusion of cinema. Beyond political concerns the film is just hilarious from start to finish. The monologue about dicks, pussies and assholes might be one of the best pieces of writing ever seen on film.
