"It just lacks something. Something is missing. I know......"
Stone, Parker, are you listening? Where the hell was the singing turd? Let's face it. The second season of the TV show just wasn't as expected. Until the film festival episode starring Mr Hankey. The guy single-handedly saved that season. Yet, in the film he doesn't even score a mention.South Park is full of the stuff Disney's classics are made up of. Lovable characters, show-stopping songs, and a message or two about life as we know it.
Except that, unlike anything by Disney, South Park features swearing, hell, suicide and anal sex. And it's messages are told in it's satire, which is as sharp as ever in this full-length cinema-released version. Although, I get the feeling that hardly any South Park fans would care about that.
The sights of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and poor dear Kenny rebelling against the town and their parents, and using language even Eddie Murphy would disapprove of, is enough to keep the fans happy, even though the filmmakers have something to say about such issues as racism and freedom of speech.
There isn't much to say about this film, except that it is fun to watch, and won't warp anyone's "fragile little minds." Worthwhile, but only for fans.And where the hell is Mr Hankey? We even stayed when the lights came on, hoping for a glimpse of him. You feel half ripped off because there is no singing turd. How about in the sequel?
