When South Park first hit theaters, no one really knew what to expect. You didn't know if you were going to get basically an extended episode of South Park, whether you were going to get something substantially more raunchy, or something bland & unworthy of actually being in theaters.
Basically, this movie showed HOW to make a TV show series into a movie, with the icing on the icing on the top being that it's a musical, and absolutely full of memorable songs you'll likely never forget (you can't tell me you'll ever forget 'Blame Canada').
South Park has turned the page on what's expected from a comedy show, and with this movie they turned the page as to what's expected from an animated movie in terms of the level of hilarity that's expected to ensue.
If you're unable to laugh at this movie, you're doing it wrong. South Park writers and creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are unlike any other comedy-writing duo I think Hollywood's ever seen (even though they're in Colorado). The fact that they're willing and able to constantly step over boundaries in ways that no one's ever seen before is a constant reminder to everyone that art is still possible within the confounds of the media we have today.
If you haven't seen this movie, or at least haven't seen this movie in a decade or so, you need to do yourself a favor and stream it. It's amazing.
