South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut is the film adaptation of the still running series that originally prided itself on crude humor, but transitioned more often into social commentary(with still plenty of crude humor). This probably really started here with the film that targets South Park's own critics as well as the MPAA for its rating system. The film itself has that commentary but it also has the humor you'd expect, most of it rather winning here. It's also a musical with a great selection of memorable songs that always propel the story while just being easy to listen to. The further step that really takes it beyond though as it goes about being a more traditional animated feature, of the Disney nature and has a tremendous amout of heart. That completely works particularly through the stories of Kenny and Satan which ends up being far more moving than you'd expect from a movie with to flatulent Canadians. It still stands as the best the series has ever had to offer, but also stands well as a very good film.
