South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut                 25th Anniversary 4K
                                           review by Bobby Blakey

There are few cartoon series that have lasted as long as Comedy Central’s South Park. The show has been running 26 seasons and numerous specials that continue to push the boundaries of their comedy satire. In 1999 they made the transition to the big screen with the feature film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut and now to celebrate the film’s 25th Anniversary its getting the highly anticipated 4K release it deserves.

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut follows Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman who sneak into an R-rated movie to see their favorite Canadian superstars. When their parents find out, they declare war on Canada. Now the boys have to stand up to their parents, stop World War III, and get Satan back to Hell before he destroys the world.  It's all part of a young boy's life in this quiet little mountain town.

As a longtime fan of the series and still watching it today I can tell you that I loved this film when it hit theaters. One of the biggest mistakes a lot of these projects make when transitioning to the big screen is that it still just feels like a regular episode. These guys went all in as they usually do to make a film that fully lives up to its name and the hype. It brings all the usual chaos

and fun that the series delivers but made sure to really dive deeper into it to make sure that they pull no punches, and no one was safe from its wrath.

The animation is what we love, but there is something about it that it even looked elevated, and they made sure to take us to places we have never been complete with a journey to Hell to join Kenny on one of his many moments of death. The rest of the boys have their own hijinks that they get into that brings all the laughs fans have come to love and then some. I loved this film when it was originally released in 1999 and it holds up to be just as hilarious as ever.

I instantly found myself singing along with the ridiculous songs in this comedy musical and reminded of keeping this soundtrack on repeat for a long time when it came out. This new release looks so good elevating the simplistic nature of the animation to be bright and vibrant in all its filthy fun and glory.

I am so glad this film got this updated release on 4K as well as including the Blu-ray featuring bonus content including the sing-a-long version, commentary, trailers and music video.

Grab your copy of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut when it hits 4K for the first time ever on June 25th from Paramount Home Entertainment.
