->''"The sun is shining and the grass is green,\\
under the 3 feet of the snow I mean.\\
This is a day when it's hard to wear a frown!\\
All the happy people stop to say hello,\\
even though the temperature's low.\\
It's a perfect Sunday morning in my [[NothingExcitingEverHappensHere quiet little mountain town]]!"''
-->-- '''Stan Marsh''', Opening Song

''South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut'' (also known as ''The South Park Movie'') -- TheMovie of [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark that famous cartoon about the foulmouthed kids]]--hit theaters in 1999, a mere two years after the show's premiere (making it one of the fastest TV-to-film adaptations in history). It is the first computer-animated film in history to receive an R rating.[[note]]However, as time went on, the term "computer animation" became more associated with CGI, and given that this film contained minimal 3D elements, it didn't appear to fit under the category anymore. Seventeen years later, ''WesternAnimation/SausageParty'' was deemed the first the R-rated computer-animated film, seemingly disqualifying ''Uncut'''s status in the process.[[/note]]

Cartman, Kenny, Kyle, and Stan sneak into a Sunday morning screening of "Asses of Fire", a new film starring their favorite {{Canad|aEh}}ian comedians, Terrance and Phillip. The [[VulgarHumor epic amounts of obscenities]] they take from the film (and quickly spread to the other kids at school) causes all sorts of trouble; before too long, the parents of South Park, led by Kyle's mother Sheila Broflovski, go on the MoralGuardian warpath. Their culture war eventually results in the arrest of Terrance and Phillip, which starts an ''actual'' war between Canada and America. The American government plans to execute Terrance and Philip during a USO show...[[FromBadToWorse which would allow Satan to rise up and cause]] TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The world's only hope for salvation? You guessed it: Cartman, Kenny, Kyle, and Stan.

While {{vulgar|Humor}} and [[CrossesTheLineTwice patently offensive]] (it won a Guinness World Record for most obscenities in an animated feature--399), ''Uncut'' remains notable for both that "fastest TV-to-movie adaptation" bit mentioned above and the song "Blame Canada". That song earned the film an Academy Award nomination (for Best Original Song, won that year by Disney's ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' for "You'll Be in My Heart"). It's also notable for being just plain laugh-out-loud funny, and the terrific original tunes--including "Blame Canada", "Mountain Town", "Uncle Fucka", and "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"--certainly help in that regard.

''Uncut'' is one of only three R-rated animated films to receive any form of recognition from the Academy, the other two being ''Animation/WaltzWithBashir'' (nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 2008) and ''WesternAnimation/{{Anomalisa}}'' (nominated for Best Animated Feature in 2015).

----

!! ''What would Brian Boitano do if he were here right now? He'd make a list of tropes for you -- that's what Brian Boitano'd do!''

* TheAce:
** Gregory.
** Brian Boitano, at least according to Stan's song.
* AdamWesting: Creator/GeorgeClooney has a cameo role as [[Series/{{ER}} a doctor who attempts to save Kenny's life]]. It goes without saying that [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Kenny dies]], but the kicker is that the doctors [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments replaced his heart with a baked potato]].
* AffectionateParody: Trey and Matt are pretty big musical theatre fans (even having penned ''Theatre/TheBookOfMormon''), and it shows; this is basically a ''South Park''-ified [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney Renaissance]] movie (with some elements of stage musicals like ''Theatre/LesMiserables'' for good measure). This is even mentioned directly in the script.
-->''Very happy, Disneyesque MUSIC swirls in.''
-->''It is a scene reminiscent of, if not directly ripped off from, the opening number of 'Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'.''
* AnachronismStew: PlayedForLaughs in "What Would Brian Boitano Do?", in which the eponymous skater beats up Kublai Khan while building the Pyramids of Giza.
* AndThereWasMuchRejoicing: "It's been 5 months since a pack of wild boars trampled Saddam Hussein to death, and the world is still glad to be rid of him".
* AngryMobSong: "Blame Canada" and "LaResistance".
* AnimatedMusical
* AntiVillain: For being the Prince of Darkness, Satan's actually a big softy.
* ArmorPiercingQuestion: "What about Ike, mom? Don't you know your own adopted son is Canadian!?"
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Cartman's cluster swear line at the end: "Fuck, shit, cock, ass, titties, boner, bitch, muff, pussy, cunt, God's butthole, '''''Barbra Streisand!!'''''"
** South Park's creators considered this {{justified|Trope}}, as they have outright said that they '''''hate''''' Streisand.
* ArtisticLicenseLaw:
** Sheila says that Terrence and Phillip are under citizens' arrest and produces a court order allowing it. However, court orders give government approval for such a thing, technically not making it a citizens' arrest.
* ArtisticLicenseLinguistics: "Bich" is not Latin for "generosity". (It's Luxembourgish for "beech tree", but that wouldn't make as snappy a lyric.)
* AudienceParticipationSong: The movie's version of "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch". "Come on, you all know the words!" Granted, Cartman's addressing the other kids in the playground, but it's pretty obvious that [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall he's also addressing the viewers]] to get up for some toe-tapping sweary fun.
* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: At the beginning of the movie, Kyle kicks Ike through a window and complains to his mother that he's adopted. Later on, it's shown that Kyle does care about Ike when the American government begins rounding up Canadian-born citizens. Kyle hides Ike in his attic so he won't be taken away and promises him that things will get better. While Kyle protects Terrance and Phillip, he [[ArmorPiercingQuestion asks his mother about Ike whom she adopted from Canada]].
* AwardBaitSong:
** "Up There", Satan's big showstopper. It's the only song in the movie without any swearing, and is a specific parody of the IWantSong as seen in Disney Renaissance movies.
** Parodied with "Eyes of a Child" by Michael [=McDonald=] of the Doobie Brothers.
** This is averted by the song that actually got award nominations, "Blame Canada".
* BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch: The other mothers leave Sheila on her own to go find their children, who are stuck in the middle of the battlefield.
* BadassGay: Satan is a subversion. He's initially weak and submissive (which is discussed when he talks to Kenny), but [[spoiler:he eventually musters the courage to break up with Saddam for good ''and kill him'']].
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:Satan kills Saddam Hussein and pulls his demons back to Hell.]]
* BaitAndSwitch: Winona Ryder's ping pong ball trick. [[spoiler: She just sits down and smacks them with a ping pong paddle, though the POV shot clearly suggests at first that she's propelling them in a more... visceral manner.]]
* BerserkButton: Call Sheila a bitch once, let alone do it repeatedly during a polka song-and-dance. Dare ya!
* BigBadDuumvirate: Saddam Hussein and Satan are a gay couple who both try to take over the world in the coming Armageddon, though Saddam is manipulative enough to the surprisingly kindhearted Satan to put himself in charge over the Prince of Darkness.
* BigBadEnsemble: Sheila Broflovski, Saddam Hussein, and Satan (the latter two form a BigBadDuumvirate). Saddam is the most wicked of the trio, while Satan--''Satan!''--is the least evil of the three.
* BigDamnMovie
* BigNo:
** Stan when the electric chairs holding Terrace and Phillip are turned on by Mr. Garrison.
** Sheila shouts this when Kyle is able to stop the Canadian/American war... [[spoiler:...then shoots Terrance and Phillip.]]
* BigWhat: Kenny, when he is shown heaven... [[YankTheDogsChain only to have the carpet yanked out from under him]] when he tries to enter, and is subsequently banished to hell.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: The army attempts to send in all the black soldiers first as "Operation: Human Shield" and the white soldiers getting behind them as "Operation: Get Behind The Darkies". [[GenreSavvy Chef]] helps avert this trope when he tells all the black soldiers to duck at the right time.
* BlatantLies: In his VillainSong, Saddam says that he ''can'' change. He never says that he ''will'' change, though. Big difference.
** When he shouts out "Just watch, I'm changing!", all he actually does is breakdance.
* BookEnds: The film begins and ends with the song "Mountain Town" sung by the main characters.
* BrickJoke: "Operation: Human Shield".
* TheCakeIsALie: Sorry if you came to LaResistance hoping for [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake punch and pie]].
* CallBack:
** The "Don't call me fat, you butt-fucking son of a bitch!" quote by Cartman was previously said by him in the "Jesus vs. Santa" short.
** Terrance and Phillip weren't the first characters in the series to use the term "pig fucker". Cartman originally used the term in the aforementioned "Jesus vs. Santa" short.
** Also in the "Jesus vs. Santa" short, due to the conflict of them not knowing whether to help either Jesus or Santa, Stan asks "what would Brian Boitano do?", and much to the boys luck, he actually appears (unlike in the movie, where ''Brian Dennehy'' appears after mishearing his name).
** Stan played kick the baby with Ike before in the pilot episode "Cartman Gets An Anal Probe".
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the Old Bitch Out]]: Kyle does this to Sheila near the end. She wasn't pleased.
* CampGay: This is played straight...gay...whatever, with Big Gay Al, and is taken UpToEleven with his big musical number, "I'm Super".
* CanadaEh
* CanadianEqualsHockeyFan: In the song "Blame Canada", the Mothers Against Canada criticize Canada for "all their hockey hullabaloo".
* CaptivityHarmonica: Ike's reaction to being forced to hide in the attic.
* CarCushion: Creator/ConanOBrien, after his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment, jumps out of the window and lands on a car. All the car's owner does is turn the alarm off.
* ChekhovsGun: The V-chip.
* ChekhovsNews: The news reporter's line during "Mountain Town":
--> "It's been six weeks since Saddam Hussein was killed by a pack of wild boars, and the world is still glad to be rid of him."
* ChuckNorrisFacts: Replace Chuck Norris with Brian Boitano and you have the majority of the song "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"
* ClusterFBomb: When Cartman's V-chip malfunctions near the climax, his newly-gained [[ShockAndAwe electrical powers]] are fueled by this trope. "Uncle Fucka" also qualifies. On a meta level, the entire film qualifies.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When the President declares war on Canada, everyone in the school gym is shocked...except for Mr. Garrison:
--> '''Garrison:''' All the Baldwins are dead?!
** When the Canadian ambassadors are talking the unjustness of Terrence and Phillip's arrest and declaring war upon the United States, the United Nations ambassadors can't get over the way they pronounce "about."
** The doctor who implants Cartman's V-chip to curb his foul mouth proclaims it as a success after Cartman doesn't want to swear--not because he's learned his lesson, but because every time he does, it electrocutes him, which he takes exception to (and often leads to more swearing).
* CooldownHugInterruption: [[spoiler:Sheila shooting Terrance and Phillip after Kyle stops the warring sides]].
* ConspicuousCG: A few famous people Kenny passes by as he falls into Hell (among them UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, George Burns, and Mohandas Gandhi) are rendered as this. Although they're not people so much as demons.
* ContinuityNod:
** If you look closely at the newspaper Mr. Broflovski is reading in the intro, you can see it says "Bookmobile Driver Released"; that's a reference to "Chickenlover", where the driver was found to be the titular culprit.
** In the theater where the kids watch "Asses of Fire" for the second time after the Mr. Mackey song, you can see Damien from the Season One episode ''Damien'' sitting next to them. This is his only reappearance in the show, not counting a similar cameo in ''VideoGame/SouthParkTheStickOfTruth''.
* CreditsGag: Satan and Saddam are listed as playing themselves. Also, the songs are said to have been performed by the characters themselves.
* DarkReprise: The dying words of [[spoiler: Ze Mole]] are one of "La Resistance".
* DemotedToDragon: Satan may be the chief entity of evil in the universe, but Saddam is clearly the one who wears the pants in their relationship.
* DescentIntoDarknessSong: The "Hell Isn't Good" song that plays when poor Kenny, well, goes to Hell.
* DescriptionCut: After "It's Easy, M'kay", Mr. Mackey tells the children they can take the rest of the day off for personal reflection or to do something constructive. Cut to the movie theater where the entire class (except for Wendy and Gregory) is watching ''Asses of Fire''.
* DeusExMachina: The entire ending, full stop.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: How Ze Mole dies.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: The kids watch Terrance and Philip's movie and start cussing worse than they usually do, which eventually leads to an all-out war with Canada because the parents refuse to accept responsibility.
* TheDogBitesBack: Satan finally has enough of Saddam's emotional abuse and impales him on a stalagmite. [[spoiler:Not that it makes any difference--after all, where else was he going to go? [[SarcasmMode Detroit?]]]]
* DoubleStandard: Sheila says that it's okay for a film to have all the carnage and mayhem it wants, as long as there are "no naughty words". Stan and Kyle do a double take in response.
* DrivenToSuicide: Conan O'Brien, following his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment.
* DudeNotFunny:
** In-universe example: Terrance and Phillip appear on ''[[Series/LateNight Late Night with Conan O'Brien]]'' and do their fart joke routine but after guest Brooke Shields admits that she once farted on the set of ''[[Literature/TheBlueLagoon Blue Lagoon]]'', Terrance slaps her in response.
** Mr. Garrison thinks that the mothers of the kids are overreacting about the swearing incidents when he finds he has to teach their syllabus, and makes an offhand remark about them being on their periods. Wendy and Gregory call him out on it (deeming it a sexist statement), but he makes an even cruder comment in response.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Butters makes several throughout the movie, when his first named and voiced debut in the series was in Season 3 (the season produced directly after the film).
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The boys don't have it so good before Kenny's wish.
* EasilyForgiven: Even after causing World War 3 over a show, set up death camps, and nearly causing the end of the world after gunning down Terrence and Phillip (Even when Kyle reasoned with her), Sheila was pretty much forgiven for causing the whole mess. Justified that Kenny wished Satan to bring back everything to normal.
* EasyRoadToHell: In the South Park universe, the only people who go to Heaven are Mormons. Everyone else, including poor Kenny, goes straight to Hell.
* EleventhHourSuperpower: [[spoiler:Cartman's V-Chip gets its wiring fried and accidentally reversed, allowing him to use it as a cuss-powered {{Kamehamehadoken}}]].
* EpicFail: Before Gregory takes command, Stan's plan to save Terrance and Phillip involves prank-calling the South Park police and sending them pizza that they didn't order.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: During the opening number, Sheila's verse is noticeably darker in tone, [[MoralGuardians and all about how evil the world is]]. She also blames Ike (her adopted, Canadian child) for something Kyle was ''clearly'' responsible for. The same scene also establishes that Kyle is useless at standing up to her.
* EvilParentsWantGoodKids: Sheila doesn't take Kyle's to her [[VillainousBreakdown very well]].
* EvenEvilHasStandards: The [[MoralGuardians Mothers Against Canada]] (except Sheila) support war with Canada, but not if it means [[NotInMyBackyard their]] children are in the middle of it. Sheila learned her lesson [[MoralEventHorizon the hard way]].
* EvilMatriarch: Sheila.
* FamilyValuesVillain: Mothers Against Canada. Especially Sheila.
* FanDisservice: At the end of Big Gay Al's song, he bares his naked genitals to the audience.
** During the apex of "Mountain Song", Sheila sings so powerfully that her fat, foldy granny nethers are exposed.
* {{Fanservice}}: Kenny sees Heaven as being full of topless women.
* FantasticRacism: Sheila has no problem talking down to Canadians, especially about "their beady little eyes and flapping heads". The Canadian ambassador she tells this to immediately denounces her as racist.
* FartsOnFire: Turns out that this really works, much to Kenny's regret.
* FinalSolution: Sheila's EvilPlan.
* {{Flanderization}}: Several characters are exaggerated from their show versions. Of course, it's all part of the plot.
** Sheila's {{Jerkass}} and MoralGuardian qualities are taken UpToEleven here.
** Terrance and Phillip swear much more harshly here than in the show.
** The boys had a reputation for having filthy mouths before, but it's also taken UpToEleven in the movie.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Several during the "Mountain Town" opening number:
** Kyle hops over the same hobo that would later pay the boys' admission to see the Terrance and Phillip movie for them.
** A news report says that Saddam Hussein (who appears in Hell as Satan's lover) was killed six weeks ago by wild boars.
** There's also a line by Kenny's mom that predicts Kenny will end up in Hell (which happens after he dies).
** Sheila yells at Ike for breaking a window that was really Kyle's doing. His Canadian blood aside, Kyle later asks his mother why she always blames everyone else when he gets into trouble.
* FreezeFrameBonus:
** A chart on the hospital wall where Kenny dies lists several doctors assigned to different things; the doctor assigned to [[Film/JamesBond "Kill Bond"]] is [[Film/DrNo No]].
** When Kyle's mom tells Mr. Garrison to pull the switch on the electric chairs while Kyle yells "Mom, No!", if you look carefully you can see that Kyle has peed himself.
** When the troops are marching through South Park on their way to the USO Show, you can see Jesus in the marching line.
** A movie poster at the South Park Bijou Cinema features [[ContinuityNod Mecha-Streisand fighting Leonard Maltin]] in a film titled, ''Mecha-Streisand Takes New York''.
** Before they break into the USO camp, Ze Mole looks at his watch to check how much time they have before the rendezvous with La Resistance. If you look closely, the label on his watch reads "Third Act: The Ticking Clock".
** The EstablishingShot of the UN has a Jolly Roger flag and a gay pride flag flying outside.
** In the first song, a log covered in snow has a suggestive [[UrineTrouble yellow patch]] on it.
** As Kenny first lands in Hell and [[OhCrap is too terrified at the horror before him,]] [[BowelBreakingBricks a tiny fart is heard.]] At first, you think this is Kenny's [[ToiletHumor nature]], but you see a skeletal dragon breathing fire in the background. Watch carefully as the fart is heard and the dragon makes its pass off-screen. Just before it flies off and you hear the fart, you can see a very tiny flaming rock falling from the general direction of what we're supposed to assume is the thing's anatomy.
** Right before the boy's mothers come into the hospital room, you can see the astronaut-themed episode of Terrance & Phillip playing on the TV.
* GagPenis: Saddam teases Satan with two of these, which are fake, but extremely realistic-looking. Also, see FanDisservice.
* TheGodsMustBeLazy: Satan and Saddam Hussein rise up from hell and take over earth. Only the fact that Saddam is such a {{Jerkass}} and Satan is a JerkWithAHeartOfGold saved Earth from being plunged into a 1000 years of darkness, and yet God does not seem to be doing anything to stop him. It's especially jarring considering that Jesus and God are both recurring characters, and you can actually briefly see Jesus in the background of one of the shots in the movie (when the soldiers are marching in front of Kyle's house).
* GoodIsNotNice: Ze Mole.
* GoYeHeroesGoAndDie: "La Resistance" is a very inspiring song for everyone who hears and sings it... except Stan, Kyle and Cartman, who are the three people it's ''supposed'' to be inspiring.
* GoshDangItToHeck:
** Sheila's dialogue is obviously devoid of swearing. In fact, she notably advocates Dr. Vosknocker's idea of placing V-Chips' inside children's heads to prevent them from swearing, after hearing Cartman's foul-mouthed song about her ("Kyle's Mom is a Bitch"). She also uses "heck" as a substitution for the F word:
--> '''Sheila''': What the ''heck'' is a rimjob?
** What Mr. Mackey tries to teach the kids by singing "It's Easy, M'kay", although he does use swear words in an educational manner.
** Cartman is reduced to this, since the "V-Chip" installed in his head shocks him whenever he tries to swear.
* GroundedForever:
** Inverted. The kids are grounded by their moms for a few weeks for seeing the Terrance & Phillip movie again (and maybe for causing Kenny's death).
** Also inverted by the Mole before he and the boys sneak into the USO show.
-->'''The Mole:''' You guys know that if we do this, we could get grounded for two, maybe three weeks.
* GuiltByAssociationGag: For some reason, Wendy and Gregory are in Mr. Mackey's support group with the other kids despite not seeing the Terrance & Phillip movie.
* HammerSpace: Where Cartman got his megaphone from.
* HeelFaceTurn: Mrs. Broflovski, at the end. Demonstrated during the closing number, wherein she pats Terrance and Phillip on the shoulder, calling them, "super sweet".
* HeelRealization: Most of the Mothers Against Canada have one when they realize that they have endangered their own boys with their actions. Sheila's doesn't come around until it's almost too late (in other words, it doesn't come until [[spoiler:she executes Terrence and Phillip and unleashes HellOnEarth]].
* HellOnEarth: Happens near the end as a result of [[spoiler:Terrence and Phillip's execution]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Kenny is willing to sacrifice a second chance at life in order to hit the ResetButton on the Canadian-American war. For his selfless wish, he is admitted into Heaven.]]
** This becomes absolute FridgeHorror when [[spoiler:it is revealed during the Mysterion timeline that Kenny doesn't stay dead. That means the poor kid received the reward of going to Heaven...and was then reincarnated into his abusive, drug-addicted, white-trash family--''with his memories of Heaven intact''.]]
* HopeSpot:
** After Kenny's surgery, it briefly seems like everything is fine and he'll live through it, as the doctors calmly wake him up. They then inform him that they accidentally replaced his heart with a baked potato and he's gonna die in roughly three seconds.
** It looked like Sheila finally came to her senses before gunning down Terrence and Phillip.
* HumanShield: The General of the American forces reveals that he's planning to use all African-American soldiers as human shields to protect them from the Canadian forces. Chef obviously takes offense at that and commands his men to ''duck''.
-->'''Chef:''' "Operation Human Shield", ''my ass!''
* {{Hypocrite}}:
** Kyle calls out his mom for trying to exterminate Canada, when her adopted son Ike is also Canadian.
** The theater clerk not selling tickets to ''Asses of Fire'' to the boys, then selling tickets to the hated 6th graders (they might have used fake [=IDs=]).
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Kyle says, "God damn, your mom sucks, Cartman" after the boys find an Internet video of her doing German scat porn (there's also a chance Kyle may have been speaking literally). Considering what his own mother is in this film, it's definitely throwing stones in a glass house on Kyle's part. To be fair, it's not as though Kyle approves of his mother's actions either, and calls her out on her {{Moral|Guardians}} KnightTemplarParent nonsense. He just gets tired of Cartman making [[TheVillainSucksSong musical numbers dedicated to his mom]].
** Terrance, co-star with Phillip on their titular show that, in-universe, is notorious for an obscene amount of fart jokes on their program, slaps Brooke Shields and says "The fuck's wrong with you?" on ''The Conan O'Brien Show'' for happily mentioning that she once farted on the set of ''Film/TheBlueLagoon''.
* ImColdSoCold: [[spoiler:The Mole]].
* IgnoredEpiphany:
** A variation of the trope in that someone tries to invoke self-reflection on others, only for the people in question to take it for granted:
-->'''Mr. Mackey:''' Now you're cured! You can take the rest of the afternoon off for personal reflection, m'kay? Find your own constructive way to better yourself, m'kay?\\
''(cut to the kids watching Terrance and Philip at the theater yet again)''
** See HopeSpot above, even after her son reasoned with her, she ignores it, and kills Terrence and Phillip.
* ImmuneToBullets: When Saddam Hussein rises from Hell along with Satan, the American soldiers immediately shoot him. He laughs off their gunfire.
* ITakeOffenseToThatLastOne: The News reporter claims that the Terrence and Phillip Movie was worse than Brian Adams. The Canadian ambassador was insulted saying "The Canadian government has apologized for Bryan Adams on several occasions."
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: When Satan throws Saddam Hussein back into Hell, he lands with a sharp rock going through his torso.]]
* {{Irony}}:
** Cartman describes ''Terrance & Phillip'' as having "crappy animation" in order to convince himself that the movie isn't all that good after the movie theater clerk prevents the boys from seeing ''Asses of Fire''. Right after that scene, we see four crudely animated boys (Cartman, Stan, Kyle and Kenny) walking down the sidewalk:
--> '''Stan''': This can't be happening.
--> '''Kyle''': We ''have'' to see this movie dude.
--> '''Cartman''': Ah, screw it. It probably isn't all that good anyway.
--> '''Kyle''': Cartman, what are you talking about?! You love ''Terrance & Phillip''!
--> '''Cartman''': Yeah, but the animation's all crappy.
** Cartman gets a V-chip that zaps him to prevent him from swearing. [[spoiler: After it malfunctions, it allows him to electrocute people whenever he does swear, and uses it to overpower Saddam. Cartman saved everyone ''by'' swearing]].
** The film is about mothers uniting to push for censorship and banning works with swearing in them, but unlike the broadcasted TV episodes of ''South Park'', all of the swearing in the movie is uncensored.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Cartman is stoked that he doesn't have to pay Kenny after he dies on the operating table. Right before Kenny was sent to the hospital, Cartman bet Kenny $100 that he couldn't light his own fart on fire.
* IWantSong:
** "Up There" for Satan, as he describes how he hates being in Hell and just wants to live on Earth. Just like most classic Disney-styled "I want" songs, it has an open interpretation.
** The bridge in "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" serves as this for Cartman, Kyle, and Stan.
--> '''Cartman''': I want this V-chip out of me. It has stunted my vocabulary.
--> '''Kyle''': And I just want my mom to stop fighting everyone.
--> '''Stan''': For Wendy I'll be an activist too, 'cause that's what Brian Boitano'd do!
* IWasToldThereWouldBeCake: The kids' lure to get people to join LaResistance. Two kids walk out when they find out there is no punch and pie.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Considering everything Sheila does throughout the movie, Cartman singing "Kyle's Mom is a Big, Fat Bitch" was warranted no matter what protests Kyle may have.
* KilledOffForReal: Subverted in that everyone who is killed in the war, including [[spoiler:Ze Mole, Mr. Garrison, Terrance, and Phillip]], comes back to life thanks to the ResetButton. This also includes [[spoiler:Bill Gates]], who was shot in the head by the General, and appears in a later episode still with a hole in his forehead!
* KneelBeforeZod: After Armaggeddon begins, Saddam Hussein demands that everyone, Americans and Canadians, all bow down before him.
* KnightTemplar: Mothers Against Canada, and Sheila Broflovski in particular.
* LampshadeHanging: "Why did our mothers start this war, what the fuck are they fighting for? When did this song become a marathon?"
* LaResistance: The TropeNamer.
* LaughablyEvil: Saddam
* LawfulStupid: Mothers Against Canada, and again, Sheila Broflovski.
* LocationSong: "Blame Canada", a song the citizens of "South Park" sing when caught up in a media frenzy about the country, because they made a film that upset the parents with its vulgar language. It was even nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song.
* MamaBear: Sheila takes this trope way too far.
* MassiveMultiplayerEnsembleNumber: Tying with this, RepriseMedley ''and'' TheSongBeforeTheStorm, "La Resistance" proves to be a ''Crowning Music'' triple-threat.
* MemeticBadass: [[invoked]] In-universe: Stan mentions that Brian Boitano did three salchows and a triple lutz blindfolded, can breathe fire, fought the Evil Robot King, built the Pyramids, and killed Kublai Khan.
* MetaFiction: Terrance and Phillip in the movie function as a satire of South Park itself and its controversial nature. ''Asses of Fire'' acts as a satire of the movie it takes place in.
* TheMusical: This movie parodies Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon musicals (which were pretty big at the time), right down to the (tongue-in-cheek) AwardBaitSong during the credits. It even recycles "Kyle's Mom's a Bitch" from a MusicalEpisode of the series proper. In fact, it was a minor cliché at the time for (mostly) non-musical cartoons such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' to get musical movies, although ''South Park'' is probably the only one that's an ''adult'' cartoon.
* MusicalisInterruptus: The "Kyle's Mom Is A Big, Fat Bitch" song comes to an awkward, grinding halt when the kids, followed by Cartman, realize in horror that Sheila is glaring right down at Cartman in silent, slowly building rage.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** Conan O'Brien, after tricking Terrance and Phillip onto his show so that they could get arrested, has one of these moments, and ends up jumping out his studio window to his death.
** Sheila when she finally does a HeelFaceTurn... [[spoiler:after triggering Armageddon by shooting Terrance and Phillip.]]
* MythologyGag: "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" is a callback to the "Jesus vs. Santa" (see CallBack above) short done as a video Christmas card prior to the start of the series that featured Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny. This includes Brian Dennehy saying "Bye-ee!" in the same way Boitano did in the original short.
* NeverGoingBackToPrison: Mole isn't getting grounded again. Not for you, not for anyone!
* NeverMyFault: Mothers Against Canada immediately blame Canada partly because they want someone to blame before anyone thinks about blaming them for not being proper parents.
* {{NOT}}: Happens during Cartman and Saddam's showdown.
-->'''Saddam:''' Hey, buddy! I know I was mean before, but don't worry, I can change.\\
'''Cartman:''' Okay... NOT!
* OhCrap: Cartman has an R-rated version of this reaction when he sees Sheila [[RightBehindMe right behind him]] after singing "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch".
--> '''Cartman''': ...oh, fuck.
* OneShotCharacter: Gregory, Dr. Vosknocker and Ze Mole.
* OperationBlank: Parodied with Operation: Human Shield and Operation: Get Behind The Darkies.
* PatterSong: "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch".
* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: The Mole, who despises God with a passion and isn't afraid to let Him know it.
* PoliticallyIncorrectVillain: Kyle's mom is this when it comes to Canadians -- despite the fact that her own adopted son is Canadian.
* PrecisionFStrike: Wendy never says any profanity at all[[note]]However, she is shown singing in "It's Easy, M'Kay" (which, as stated above, uses swear words in an educational manner), but she could have been lipsyncing.[[/note]] until the ending, where she says, "Fuck Gregory. Fuck him in the ear!" This trope is especially true in [[http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/south-park.html the eighth draft]] in which she has much more dialogue, none of which feature any curse words at all.
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: Ze Mole does this ''constantly''.
* TheReasonYouSuckSpeech: Kyle gives one to his mom, calling her a good-for-nothing bitch who's never around for him and instead goes off fighting against things she shouldn't be fighting against.
* RefugeInAudacity: This film could easily be called ''RefugeInAudacity: TheMovie''.
* ResetButton: [[spoiler: After Kenny inspires Satan to kill Saddam Hussein (who he was getting sick of), Satan grants him a wish, which he uses to get everything back the way it was before the war. See "DeusExMachina".]]
* TheReveal: At the end, Kenny's face and unmuffled voice are revealed for the first time.
* RightBehindMe: Kyle's mom is standing right behind Cartman while he's singing TheVillainSucksSong, which leads to him having the V-chip implanted in his head.
* RomanticFalseLead: Gregory - there are constant hints that Wendy Testaburger is falling for him and his activist ways [[spoiler: until the denouement]].
* ScreenToStageAdaptation: Well, with all the Broadway-style singing and dancing, do you think people ''wouldn't'' try this? There have been two unofficial stage musical adaptations of ''Bigger, Longer & Uncut'': one by the Berklee College of Music with only the musical numbers, and a "24-Hour Musical" version by University College Dublin.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Stan, Kyle, and Cartman break all of the rules they normally wouldn't along with the rest of the kids in La Resistance in order to stop their parents and fix their mistakes.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: When the General of the American forces reveals that their big battle plan is to place all black people in front and use them as {{Human Shield}}s, Chef has his men drop to the ground at the appropriate point--which lets Canada eviscerate a good chunk of America's armed forces right off the bat.
* SelfDeprecation: The boys walk out of the theater criticizing the movie's poor animation, all while doing the show's famous "bobbing walk".
* ShockAndAwe: [[spoiler:A malfunction in Cartman's V-Chip during the final battle allows him to shoot electricity from his body when he swears--the more profane, the more powerful.]]
* ShoutOut: See the ''South Park'' [[ShoutOut/SouthParkSeasons1To5 Shout Out page]] for the movie.
* SillyReasonForWar: See DisproportionateRetribution above; only in the South Park universe is war declared over a movie.
* SirSwearsALot:
** All four boys (Stan less than the others) become this after seeing ''Asses of Fire''.
** Terrance and Phillip cuss a lot more (and a lot harsher) in TheMovie than they normally do in the show.
** [[spoiler: This is taken UpToEleven when Cartman's V-Chip malfunctions.]]
* SkewedPriorities: From what we see, most of the American military's planning for the war with Canada seems to revolve around the big USO Show where Terrance and Philip will be executed. This comes back to bite them when it becomes clear that Canada, conversely, has been preparing for ''an actual invasion of the United States''.
** Through most of the movie, Stan is more interested in "finding the clitoris" (even though he has no idea what that actually means) than in stopping the war and preventing TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt.
* SpoofAesop: The ending of the [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within a Movie]]:
-->'''Terrance:''' Well, Phillip, I hope you learned something from this whole experience.\\
'''Phillip:''' I did, Terrance. I learned that you are a boner biting dick fart fuck face!
* TheStinger: Ike eats a rat in the attic.
* SuddenlyShouting: Sheila, when Kyle doesn't want to bring Ike along to the movies:
--> '''Sheila''': DO AS I SAY, KYLE!
--> '''Kyle''': Okay, okay, I'm sorry.
* SuicideAsComedy: Conan O'Brien's jumper suicide is played for laughs, especially when he crashes into and destroys a car parked on the street below, and the owner walks up to turn off the car alarm.
* TakeThat:
** The most prominent example occurred outside the movie, when Phil Collins beat Matt Stone and Trey Parker for the Best Original Song Oscar (for his work in ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' for the song "You'll Be in My Heart"). Matt and Trey retaliated in the season 4 episode "Timmy 2000", where the kids take ADD pills and become listless enough to tolerate Collins's music.
** When Kenny demands to go see the Terrance and Phillip film rather than go to church, Ms. [=Mc=]Cormick tells him that when he dies, he's going to Hell to see Satan. Kenny doesn't care.
** Who knew that "Music/BarbraStreisand" was the foulest word in the English language?
** An African-American soldier asks "Is the people gonna die?" in a voice that sounds a lot like [[Film/ThePhantomMenace Jar-Jar Binks]], a jab at the character's alleged racist implications.
** And of course, the entire film is essentially one of the most ''vicious'' Take Thats ever made against MoralGuardians, the MPAA, censorship and scapegoat parenting.
** It's hard not to pick up on a certain amount of frustration with Windows '98 in the scene where Bill Gates is summoned by the General, yelled at for not making Windows '98 fast enough, and then getting summarily shot in the head.
** The first one in the film was about the fictional death of Saddam Hussein (who died seven years after the film's release), when the movie bluntly stated that "the world is still glad to be rid of him."
** Played more for laughs, but "Blame Canada" calls Anne Murray a bitch, which the real Anne Murray was amused by.
* TemptingFate: After the Baldwin family's home gets bombed by the Canadian Air Force, all of them are dead except for a single survivor. He triumphantly boasts "Ha ha! You missed me!" right before the last plane drops a bomb on his head as well.
* TooMuchInformation: When Gregory starts going into details about just what will happen if LaResistance is captured in song form, Stan, Kyle, and Cartman all silently look on with horrified faces.
* TriumphantReprise: The reprise of "Mountain Town" at the end.
* {{Troll}}: The ''afterlife itself''. When Kenny dies (again), he gets to see heaven... for a total of ten seconds before being plummeted into hell.
* TunnelKing: "The Mole" digs his way to the USO show stage to free Terrance and Phillip, but the boys forget to turn off the alarm on time and he's mauled to death by guard dogs.
* UnusualEuphemism: Barbra Streisand, [[spoiler: one of the many profanities said by Cartman while his V-Chip was malfunctioning.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: Sheila [[spoiler: shooting and killing Terrence and Phillip]].
* VillainousLament: "Up There."
* VillainSong: "I Can Change", "Up There", and "Blame Canada" (sort of).
* TheVillainSucksSong: "Kyle's Mom is a Bitch," originally from the series' first Christmas special. Thanks, Cartman.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: Sheila
* WalkingOutOnTheShow: Everybody who went to see "Asses of Fire"--except our heroes, of course--left ''en masse'' during the "Uncle Fucker" song.
* WarIsHell: Most of the [[MoralGuardians Mothers Against Canada]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone are horrified]] when seeing the actual Canadian-American battlefield, especially since their sons are wandering around in it. But of course, being ''South Park,'' it also manages to [[PlayedForLaughs play this trope for laughs]]. [[AnimatedMusical In song.]]
-->"They may [[{{Squick}} cut your dick in half]], and feed it to a pig,
-->And though it hurts [[MajorInjuryUnderreaction you'll laugh]], and dance a dickless jig!
-->For that's the way it goes, in war you're shat upon..."
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler: Ze Mole.]]
* WeHaveReserves: In the invasion plans of Canada, black people are put into units best described as "bullet shield".
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sheila.
* [[WhatsAHenway What's a Buttfor?]]: "For pooping, silly."
* WhenYouComingHomeDad: Kyle just wants his mom to stop fighting and actually be a mom to him.
* WouldBeRudeToSayGenocide: "All Canadian-Americans are to report to one of these death camps right away. Did I say death camps? I meant happy camps!"
* YankTheDogsChain: After [[TheyKilledKennyAgain getting killed yet again,]] Kenny thinks he's going to heaven. [[{{Hell}} He's wrong.]]
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Although it's never said outright, Satan and Saddam Hussein all but tell Sheila to her face that she's responsible for the end of the world. She did not take their compliment well...
