So, in the town of South Park, Colorado, the four little boys, Stan, Kyle, Karmen & Kenny go off to the movie theatre to see Asses of Fire starring these Canadian actors Terrence and Philip and the thing that makes them differ from the American characters in this intentionally badly animated claptrap is the top of their heads in between their not-there mouths jump around when they speak and their eyes are like snowman buttons. Anyway, after the montage in which the three kids learn to really swear and get their entire town into it, the kids anyway, then Kyle's mom Shiela is so outraged that they can't stop, and for several other rather unexplainable whips in the face, she not only blames Terrence and Philip, I guess mainly since they seem to stay in character too much, but the whole country as well. What could possibly go wrong? Well, this is South Park. Now that I think about it, this is the same thing that happened with The Interview back last Christmas with Seth Rogen and James Franco. Maybe the writers had a vision 15 years into the future.
So, the first thing I had in mind upon finishing this movie, which was hard to do, was 'If this is one of your favourite movies, chances are another one is Movie 43.' And I still say that.
The movie is as racist as American Sniper, as offensive as Canadian Bacon, as time-dragging as American Hustle and more swearing than The Departed. But for some reason I didn't absolutely hate it. Let me tell you that I don't think I've ever seen a movie in my life that's twisted my view on movies this much. I give this movie a C, and there are movies worse than this? It represents blacks as the shield, Canadians like me as worse in the drawing departments in life and flatulence lovers, and swears to the point where I imagined myself in the wrath of Satan himself a hundred years from now for ever sitting through this movie. And all of the above movies I just compared it to got either an F or D- from me. Maybe however, the reason I didn't hate it in the end is because of the musical numbers. Despite one of the songs being called "Blame Canada" and another rhyming the word "Poop", I almost tapped my feet at both of those and actually wouldn't have minded if I had to hear them again. There's also the animation, which is as bad as it's always been; so bad, that the animators don't actually move the feet of the characters and they knowingly point it out. I will say that the movie's animation gets slightly better by the big third act.
There is a running gay gag throughout hell involving Satan and Saddam Hussein, who was still alive during the release of this film and it sees Hussein as the gay mo'fo. And his head moves like the Canadians in this movie does. South Park really does stretch the boundaries for what can be legally played in the entertainment industry. If this can be allowed out there, then surely you can also watch live executions and hangings, right?
I don't really recommend you check out South Park, but hey! Everyone else seems to love the unapologetic humour. You probably won't care that I hated it.
