    really? Wow. The animation looks (and is) soo cheap and you don't have to pay writers, producers, not many voice actors. Where did that money go?

    Btw just for the record, I knew that the budget was more than a million (duh) but 22 is a lot of money

And they were writing it up until weeks within the movie's release and the execs were freaking out about it and they didn't see the problem. Maybe it was on some of the S3 commentaries, for the episodes about the time the movie was coming out, I guess.

    I actually think it would've been better overall as a musical, so that was a good move to make.

    I didn't know that. Interesting, though. The songs are such a big part of the movie. I know that Matt and Trey are both passionate musicians, so I think at some point in the writing process, they just asked themselves "Why not make it a musical?"

    Oh, you bet they did.

    That's from January 1999, six months prior to release, eighth draft. As you can see, it was a musical (in fact, they decided they wanted it to be right before writing the first draft I believe) back then, and the plot is a lot more (unnecessarily) complex with nonsense such as Snacky Smores playing a huge role (it's in the current movie parodying product placement I believe), and there's a gigantic stretch covering Terrance and Phillip's trial while the kids are in "rehab". In the current film, this part is only three or so minutes long.

    Half the songs stayed in the movie with slightly revised lyrics, while some were cut (Stan & Wendy's duet) and some were changed entirely ("Something Must be Done" into "Blame Canada", "Going to the Movies Today" into "Mountain Town").

    Even though the draft has it's faults, I can't help but think that Cartman's megaphone line is much more hilariously random: "HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO GARGLE RAT JIZZ?!!"

    That was a pretty interesting draft, I gotta admit I like Mountain Town WAY more than that movie song

    Stupendous.

    When my form band went on tour, before every show we would eat frozen pizza and watch this movie.

    It's really good.

    Brilliant film.

    I don't like the first 3 seasons of SP. Hated the show and reluctantly saw this film with a friend. I instantly fell in love. Still can't stomach early SP, but Season 4 onward is some of the best shit ever, and I am happy that it took this film to finally win me over on the show. I don't follow it religiously, and they made some terrible episodes each season, but I really admire how it isn't afraid to take risks.

    Cool, I saw this movie like four years ago on YouTube in like eight parts and wanted to get it, but at thirteen felt like it'd be weird asking your mother to buy this movie for you, so I figured that like, I didn't need it or anything, so I'd hold out until a possible ten year anniversary edition or something and forgot all about it until this came up. So that's real cool for me.

    This is actually one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. South Park humor makes me laugh like no other.

The satire is really really well done and the show is not afraid of shocking and offending people to make its point across the viewers. While the main focus was about bad parenting and dangerous knee-jerk passionate reactions, they satirized a wide variety of topics.

    In context and taking into account the satire, the movie is very funny.

    Anyone get the blu-ray? Because it seems like everyone kinda forgot about it.

    Well, you should. And from listening to the commentary, it isn't surprising that we still got zip from it. Despite what featurettes may be out there, it's pretty clear from Matt and Trey that they wanted nothing to do with it from the second it was finished besides be proud of it and let it be. No wonder there's barely any extras, because there is nothing, and it's from right before they started a mandate on creating media packages during production for DVD releases. Trey hasn't seen it since its premiere, and barely even remembers making it. (Matt remembers a little more than Trey) But the very little they do remember is rather interesting, i.e. all the big things that you might have already suspected.

    Those expecting an in-depth scene analysis and talk about the story's creation will be rather disappointed. They rarely touch on those things (they even mock commentarisms near the end), but like I said, when they do, it's kind of interesting. It's more of these stories surrounding the production and release as well as MPAA and marketing squabbles. The EP they eventually bring in gives a handy share of info (my favorite running joke in the thing is how each special guest questions them on what they already covered), but arguably the best part is when they bring Vernon Chatman and another friend on board for the last twenty-five minutes, that's when it turns into amusing and informative to just outright hilarious. Especially when they started harping on the story structures of some recent superhero movies.

    The commentary is enjoyable and quite funny, just not very in-depth. But what did you expect? I definitely recommend it, though. The quality is absolutely spectacular, and the colors really pop-out on the picture. It's more or less nice to finally see a new release of the movie overall...

    BUMP just for fun

    Actually, I did watch the movie again just recently. I still love every minute of it. Funny thing, I just finished reading an interview with Matt and Trey in the NY Times and they said that the movie was THE turning point in South Park history, because people started to get bored with the show, but after the movie was released, the show got a new "restart".

    Oh yeah I got the blu-ray and it was great. Though the commentary made me a little sad because it seemed the creators had forgotten that the crude animation was part of the show's charm in the first place.

    Mostly Trey just kept bashing it and acting as if the current animation is like the best in the world, when it's hardly anything solid. It was started as intentionally crude, then when they decided to put a lot more effort into it, it bumped up to mediocre rather than actually "good." I mean hell, with enough effort and patience any nerdy teen animator could do a scene that looks near identical to current South Park in basic Flash.

    But it had some good stuff in it, highlights included reminiscing the Oscars and their embarrassment of the dresses and when Bill Hader and Vernon Chatman (Towelie) came in to take things back to a more funny and laid-back atmosphere. The latter was especially hilarious.
