Being Canadian myself, I must say that I was probably a little biased by the hilarious depiction of our country and its circumstances within the story. "Canada...kill them before they kill us!", read one T-shirt in the movie. Pretty funny. There were also a lot of "smaller jokes" which may slip you by if you're not paying close attention (Listen closely near the end, when one of the African-American soldiers sounds peculiarly like one Jar-Jar character from THE PHANTOM MENACE...nice touch, guys!). The one thing that might've been improved on in this film, is the matter of musical numbers that scattered its length. Most of them were pretty funny, but they didn't need to have every single character break out in song at some point of the movie. Then again, it was a small price to pay for an overall enjoyable time at the theatre of movies. Just make sure that you leave your "thinking cap" home for this one, switch off all of your politically correct electrodes, and get ready to be entertained by a bunch of immature kids with filthy mouths, fucked-up thoughts and the balls to pull it all off. Of course I am speaking of the two men behind this raunchy production: Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
