''South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut'' is TheMovie of [[WesternAnimation/SouthPark that famous cartoon about the foulmouthed kids that airs on]] ComedyCentral, released in 1999. The four protagonists -- Cartman, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny -- 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 obscenity]] they take from the film cause all sorts of trouble; their parents go on the MoralGuardian warpath after learning about their sons' new linguistic skills, kidnapping Terrance and Phillip, starting a war between Canada and America, threatening to kill them live during a USO show, [[FromBadToWorse and inadvertently allowing Satan to rise up and cause]] TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. The film has a ''lot'' to offer.

[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Plus,]] thanks to Cartman, Satan and Saddam Hussein, [[TheMusical it's a musical]].

For such a [[VulgarHumor vulgar]], [[CrossesTheLineTwice offensive]] movie (it holds the world record for most obscenities in an animated feature, with 399; at 599, the live-action champion is the Martin Scorcese film ''{{Casino}}''), ''Uncut'' is notable for quite a few things. For one, it's one of the fastest TV-to-movie adaptations in the history of Hollywood, WesternAnimation/SouthPark having debuted ''two years'' before. For another, the song "Blame Canada" earned the film an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song (Disney's ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'' won, but Matt Stone and Trey Parker didn't take it lying down). Above all this, the movie is just laugh-out-loud funny and benefited by some terrific original tunes, like "Blame Canada", "Mountain Town", "Uncle Fucka", and "What Would Brian Boitano Do?"

Notably, this is one of only ''two'' animated R-rated movies to be recognized in any way by the Academy. The other one is ''Film/WaltzWithBashir'', which was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 2008.

!!Tropes featured in this work include the following:

* TheAce: Gregory.
* 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]].
* 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".
* AnimationBump: Appropriately enough, compared to Seasons 1 and 2. {{Subverted|Trope}}, however, from Season 3 onward, which took all the data and techniques used in the film and cranked them UpToEleven. By Season 13 standards, BL&U looks like shi-''[[labelnote:ZZZZZZZZZAP]]AGH![[/labelnote]]''
* 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, butthole, '''''Barbra Streisand!!'''''"
** South Park's creators considered this [[JustifiedTrope justified]] as they have gone on record as outright saying 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.)
* AwardBaitSong: Parodied with "Eyes of a Child" by Michael [=McDonald=] of the Doobie Brothers. The one that actually got award nominations, "Blame Canada", is not much of an example.
* BackstabbingTheAlphaBitch: The other mothers leave Sheila on her own to go find their children, who are stuck in the middle of the battlefield.
* BadGuysDoTheDirtyWork: [[spoiler:Satan kills Saddam Hussein and pulls his demons back to Hell.]]
* BerserkButton: Call Sheila a bitch just once. I dare ya!
* BigBadDuumvirate: Saddam Hussein and Satan.
* BigBadEnsemble: Sheila Broflovski, and Saddam Hussein and Satan (who form a BigBadDuumvirate). From most wicked to least they are Saddam -> Sheila -> Satan, who is surprisingly 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.]]
* BlatantLies: Subverted. In his VillainSong, Saddam only says he ''can'' change, not he ''will'' change. Big difference.
** And when he shouts out "Just watch, I'm changing!" All he actually does is breakdance.
* BrickJoke: "Operation Human Shield".
* TheCakeIsALie: Sorry if you came to LaResistance hoping for [[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake punch and pie]].
* [[CallingTheOldManOut Calling the Old Bitch Out]]: Kyle does this to Sheila near the end. She wasn't pleased.
* CampGay: Of course played straight with Big Gay Al, but this trope deserves mentioning for the number "I'm Super"
* CanadaEh
* 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, and on a grander scale, the entire film.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: When the President declares war on Canada, everyone in the school gym is shocked except for Mr. Garrison who is more concerned about the Baldwin brothers being killed by the Canadian Air Force.
** Also when the Canadian ambassadors are declaring how unjust the execution of Terrence and Phillip is, and they're declaring war upon the United States, their audience just can't get over the way they pronounce "about."
* 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 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.
* CreditsGag: Satan and Saddam are listed as playing themselves. Also, the songs are said to have been performed by the characters themselves.
* CryForTheDevil: A literal, Miltonian example - Satan is one of the most sympathetic characters in the entire film.
* 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.
* DeusExMachina: The entire ending, full stop.
* DiedInYourArmsTonight: [[spoiler: How Ze Mole dies.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: The ''entire reason'' for the movie: The kids watch Terrance and Philip's movie and start cussing worse than they usually do. This 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 was he going to go? Detroit?]]
* DoubleStandard: A non-sexual one. Sheila says that it's okay for a film to have all the carnage and mayhem it wants, as long as there are no swear words. The other characters do a double take in response to this.
* DrivenToSuicide: Conan O'Brien, following his MyGodWhatHaveIDone moment.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: The boys don't have it so good before Kenny's wish.
* EasilyForgiven: Sheila
* 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 it's wiring fried and accidentally reversed, allowing him to use it as a cuss-powered {{Kamehamehadoken}}]].
* 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.
* FanDisservice: At the end of Big Gay Al's song, he bares his naked genitals to the audience.
* {{Fanservice}}: Kenny sees Heaven as being full of topless women.
* 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.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The working title for this movie was "South Park: All Hell Breaks Loose." When they showed the original trailer to the MPAA, however, it was only approved for "Restricted Audiences", because "Hell" wasn't a G-rated word. So they changed the title to its current form, which (despite the ''much'' racier innuendo) didn't contain any words that weren't G-rated, and thus their trailer was approved for "All audiences."
* 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:
** What Mr. Mackey tries to teach the kids by singing "It's Easy, Mkay".
** 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 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 movie.
* HammerSpace: Where Cartman got his megaphone from.
* 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 until it's almost too late.
* 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 won't STAY DEAD. That means the poor kid received the reward of going to Heaven, and the next day was reincarnated into his abusive, drug-addicted, white-trash family. WITH HIS MEMORIES 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. Then they 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.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Kyle says, "God, 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 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, mmkay? Find your own constructive way to better yourself, mmkay?\\
''(cut to the kids watching Terrance and Philip at the theater yet again)''
* 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 numerous occasions."
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: When Satan throws Saddam Hussein back into Hell, he lands with a sharp rock going through his torso.]]
* IWantSong:
** "Up There" for Satan, as he describes how he hates being in Hell and just wants to live on Earth.
** The bridge if "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 I Was Told There Would Be Punch and Pie]]: The kids' lure to get people to join LaResistance.
* 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.
* KarmaHoudini: Let's face it, Sheila faced no charges for her crime against humanity (though she did apologize to Kyle at the end).
* KilledOffForReal: Averted 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.
* LaResistance: The TropeNamer.
* LaughablyEvil: Saddam
* LawfulStupid: Mothers Against Canada, and again, Sheila Broflovski.
* 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.
* 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.]]
* 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's reaction to Sheila being [[RightBehindMe right behind him]] after singing "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 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 featuring 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 is shown 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.
* 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 turns it right back around on them and has his men drop to the ground, letting those behind them get shot.
* 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/{{SouthPark-Seasons1To5}} Shout Out page]] for the movie.
* SillyReasonForWar: See DisproportionateRetribution above, only in the South Park universe where war is 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: Taken UpToEleven when Cartman's V-Chip malfunctions.]]
* 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.
* 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}}''). Matt and Trey retaliated in the season 4 episode "Timmy 2000", where the kids take ADD pills and become so listless they actually tolerate Collins' music.
** 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, censorship, and scapegoat parenting.
* 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.

* VillainousLament: "Up There."
* VillainSong: "I Can Change", "Up There", and "Blame Canada" (sort of).

* WalkingOutOnTheShow: Everybody who went to see the Terence and Philip movie ''Asses of Fire'' left en masse (except, naturally, Cartman and the gang) during the "Uncle Fucker" song.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:The Mole]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Sheila.
* WeHaveReserves: In the invasion plans of Canada, black people are put into units best described as "bullet shield."
* [[WhatsAHenway What's a Buttfor?]]: "For pooping, silly."

* YankTheDogsChain: After [[TheyKilledKennyAgain getting killed yet again]], Kenny thinks he's going to heaven. [[{{Hell}} He's wrong]].
* YourApprovalFillsMeWithShame: Although not stated outright, Satan told Sheila she's responsible for the end of the world. She did not take the compliment well...
