Buy it... if you like your musicals served up with lyrics that typically make the bodies of good, church-going folk seize up.

Avoid it... if you have no tolerance for the childish and offensive television show, because the feature film's musical numbers, while impressive in their orchestral and vocal mix, are the ultimate in similarly obnoxious parody.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut: (Trey Parker/Marc Shaiman) If you're offended by such words as shit, bitch, fuck, anti-Christ, etc, then both the following review and the music it discusses won't be your cup of tea. Cease reading here. Otherwise, take what you read with a grain of salt, because your opinion of the music for South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is so directly correlated to your tolerance for the show that nearly all the parties interested in this album will be those who support its 10+ year run on the Comedy Central cable station. The longevity of Trey Parker and Matt Stone's "South Park" concept is somewhat amazing given the tendency of some fans to "grow out of it." The phenomenon was intriguing in its plainly offensive nature when it started, introducing people to the pleasures of alien anal probes and a talking piece of fecal matter. Somewhere along the way, however, the show lost its unique appeal. Fortunately, the feature film adaptation of the show, even far wilder and more disgusting than the television version, opened in 1999 when "South Park" was still making waves. The premise is basically the same: four animated grade-school boys living in the redneck town of South Park, Colorado, use running gags and, in this case, a war against Canada to stir up controversy. It's parody at its most juvenile, which makes it an odd combination of extreme smarts and tiresome immaturity. The film's musical format allowed Parker to really flourish in his sense of humor, using the formula of a 1990's Walt Disney blockbuster to guide its structure. It was a surprising success at the time, too, winning Chicago and Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards for "Best Music" and nominated for an Oscar for one of the less verbally offensive songs. Its performance at the ceremony was something to behold. To flesh out the songs with an orchestral accompaniment suitable for any Broadway production, Parker brought veteran composer and songwriter Marc Shaiman onto the crew. That choice is among the most admirable of South Park, because the composer's personal sense of humor and great knowledge of musicals paid off.
