WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The movie that vexed the MPAA, South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut delivers its “pervasive vulgar language and crude sexual humor” in knee-slapping style. When Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman sneak into an R-Rated movie, it turns their innocent minds into playgrounds of the devil. Shocked by their children’s language, the mothers of their little Mountain Town unite to wage war on Canada—the country of origin of the filthy movie that warped their youngsters. Now go wash your mouth out with soap, mmmkay?
