South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut: 10 Jokes That Are Still Funny Today

South Park is good at moving with the times. The writers tackle something relevant to modern society with each season, moving forward in a linear narrative that still manages to encompass the vulgar and, at times, immature humor South Park is well-known for.

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won

Lady Gaga isn’t the first performer in a film to compete for a Best Song Oscar — some have even won
Can we agree that among the eight Oscar nominations granted “A Star Is Born,” its likeliest win will be Best Song for “Shallow”? That soaring ballad sold the music-packed showbiz saga’s first trailer like nobody’s business as Lady Gaga‘s Ally started to roar before a mic. The pop chanteuse herself would receive the honor alongside her co-writers Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt. The song has already won a Golden Globe and is up for four Grammys, including Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Judging by the combined odds chart based on rankings by Experts, Editors and Users, “Shallow’s” support is quite deep, with more than 2,200 predicting it will win.

Songs that bring home the Academy Award usually benefit from actually being performed onscreen and not just heard, and Gaga and Bradley Cooper do a mesmerizing job of selling this tune. But

Review: ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ Doesn’t Soar, but Emily Blunt Shines

Mary Poppins Returns can’t possibly be expected to transcend its historical foundation. It’s been over half a century since the Disney original seeped its way into the collective consciousness. Julie Andrews is all but synonymous with the stern, yet cheerful magical nanny. Songs like “Spoonful of Sugar,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and other Sherman Brothers’ creations are now musical standards. Hence, any long-in-the-making, Disney-stamped sequel will inevitably be forced to pay homage to the original and re-introduce the concept of Mary Poppins to a new generation. Mary Poppins Returns serves too many cultural and financial masters to be its own beast, so it’s forced to make space in a middle ground circumscribed by nostalgia.

While that’s not necessarily a deal breaker, director Rob Marshall and screenwriter David Magee don’t help matters by tying the film to its predecessor in almost every way imaginable. It’s one thing for

The most tasteless third graders on television graduate to the big screen, as Trey Parker and Matt Stone expand their animated series with foul-mouthed humor that might breach the boundaries of basic cable. In the small Colorado town of South Park, good-natured Stan Marsh, slightly neurotic Kyle Broflovski, fat and petulant Eric Cartman, and perpetually doomed Kenny McCormick are psyched for the premiere of the first feature film from flatulent Canadian TV performers Terrance and Phillip,

Spielberg and Showtime are going to Broadway

Spielberg and Showtime are going to Broadway
Steven Spielberg (via Dreamworks TV) and Showtime are in talks for a new scripted series chronicling the production of a new as yet untitled Broadway show. One of the composers for the show is Marc Shaiman, who worked on the movie South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut so I view that as a plus.

A similar casting concept has been done as reality television a few times already for various musicals including Grease, The Sound of Music. and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Much as I don't like the genre, this concept sounds better as a reality television show, possibly on Bravo.

On the other hand, cable is the bolt-hole for scripted television nowadays. Perhaps this is the chance for Spielberg and Showtime to prove that scripted TV is the superior type. I'm secretly hoping that the show they choose is Dracula the Puppet Musical, unlikely as that may be.

South Park Duo Land Saddam Hussein Keepsake

South Park Duo Land Saddam Hussein Keepsake
South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker still can't believe a signed photo of Saddam Hussein U.S. Marines sent them is for real - but they hope it is.

Legend has it the troops screened the duo's 1999 film South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut before the former Iraqi dictator was executed in 2006.

In the film, an animated Hussein is depicted as Satan's gay lover.

Stone says, "We're very proud of our signed Saddam picture and what it means... I have it on pretty good information from the Marines on detail in Iraq that they showed Saddam the movie over and over again, which is a pretty funny thought."

'The Simpsons' May Hit the Silver Screen

  • WENN
Production bosses are finally bringing The Simpsons to the big screen after years of trying - but they're refusing to divulge any details about the project. According to creator and writer James L Brooks, an idea has been accepted which will see the family from the hit TV series - Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa and Maggie - hit the big screen in the next few years. But As Good As It Gets director Brooks is keen to keep the project under wraps, because it's only in its infant stage. He says, "We've got a very good and interesting idea, and it's different from the show. You know, it's like the South Park movie where it's just a bigger, longer, amplified version of the show. I can't tell you anything specific about it. My wife doesn't even know the secret." Fellow writer Mike Reiss adds, "It's been 13 years of wanting to do The Simpsons movie. Finally Fox said, 'Let's just do it!' We never had the greatest idea that was compelling but Fox said, 'Maybe if we start paying you, you'll get inspired.' And sure enough, it worked!"

South Park Creator Gets His Revenge On Phil Collins

South Park Creator Gets His Revenge On Phil Collins
South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut (1999) writer Trey Parker's joy at winning an MTV award for BEST MUSICAL PERFORMANCE was eclipsed by his delight that Oscar- winner Phil Collins wasn't even nominated. Parker, who with South Park co-creator Matt Stone carried off an award for their song UNCLE F**KA, said he was delighted to be able to get his own back on Collins, who beat him to an Oscar earlier this year with his songs for the DISNEY film Tarzan (1999). Parker says, "The great thing is that Phil Collins wasn't even nominated. Phil has been calling me every week showing off about his Oscar. But it fits Phil has the little bald guy and I have the popcorn." Parker adds the MTV awards are much cooler than the Oscars anyway, as the voters tend to be more hip - and they could enjoy it more as they were less drunk. He laughs, "The people voting for this are under 70 whereas the ACADEMY AWARDS are a little different... And we're less drunk. We were so f**ked up when we got to the Oscars. Literally 20 minutes into it, we were like, 'we've got to go.' And we were wearing dresses as well which wasn't easy."
