South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut ★★★½

Trey Parker is a genius. His range of skills is shockingly wide: satire, farce, vaudevillian word games, deep character work, lightning fast political commentary, music that Sondheim could envy.

But there’s always a but. Sometimes it’s the transphobia around Mr. Garrison, or just weird punching-down mean spiritedness, or (as in this case) the whole tiresome Saddam Hussein thing.

Outside of that, it’s killer.
