‘South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut’ Is Getting A Sing-a-long Re-Release This Summer

This June, South Park fans will have the opportunity to join their favorite characters in some of the all-time best South Park songs in theaters across the country — this country, obviously. Not Canada.

Back in 1999, Trey Parker and Matt Stone gave those in the movie world who missed Cannibal! The Musical the first indication that the South Park creators’ next step after mastering TV and film would inevitably be a foray into Broadway musicals. With South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, Parker and Stone expressed all of their NC-17 rated thoughts about the censorship and parental pearl-clutching that typified media discourse in the 1990s through a series of show tunes that established them as two of the greatest comedic songwriters on the planet. 

This June, Fathom Events will give South Park fans who spent the last quarter-century memorizing every word to the amazing soundtrack of Bigger, Longer & Uncut in every language in which Kyle’s mom is a bitch the chance to flex their pipes in public. The 25th anniversary re-release of Bigger, Longer & Uncut will be a sing-a-long special — unless Sheila Broflovski ruins this movie, too.

Not only is the track list for the Bigger, Longer & Uncut album one of the best examples of Parker and Stone’s propensity for writing earnest and inspired show tunes, but the iconic song “Blame Canada” also led to one of their all-time best bits at the 72nd Academy Awards where the tune was nominated for Best Original Song. 

As the legend goes, Parker and Stone showed up to the 2000 Oscars wearing lavish dresses inspired by outfits worn by Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow respectively at previous awards show, and the South Park creators refused to answer any questions from press about their fashion choices, simply responding to inquiries with, “It’s just such a magical evening, everyone looks so spectacular.” 

Oh, also, they were tripping absolute balls on LSD during the entire awards show.

Now, I’m not recommending that anyone looking to enjoy the original South Park movie and its masterful soundtrack in theaters this summer should follow the lead of the film’s creators when preparing for this equally important event, all I’m saying is that, when you’re sitting down for two hours straight, dresses are more comfortable than jeans.
