Baseketball Review


Good
Sadly underrated, it seems Parker and Stone will get no points for anything they do outside of South Park. While they didn't write this one, BASEketball is surprisingly hilarious, filled with sheer asinine humor to fill a dozen Naked Guns. The plot, involving the travails of a new sport combining basketball and baseball that goes pro, is absurd, but it's the little moments, like Jenny McCarthy sucking the chrome off a trailer hitch -- literally -- that give BASEketball all the legs it needs.

Cannibal! The Musical Review


Excellent
Before there was South Parkthere was Cannibal!, a Trey Parker-directed live-action feature (and muscial, of course), about the country's only man ever convicted for cannibalism. That man was Alferd Packer, who (if you can believe the guy behind South Park, ate his travelling companions, Donner-style, when they were stranded in the Colorado mountains. Parker makes light of this in the best way possible, with happy tunes and absurd gore -- all fitting its Troma label. If you'd like to see how Ravenous should have been made, here's where to look.

Orgazmo Review


Good
Normally NC-17 is a dubious honor given to expensive softcore that tries to hit up the "genteel freak" market (or, in the case of Showgirls, people that want to score big in Vegas below the tables). It's a badge of dishonor to be hit with all the lawyering a solid studio backing can muster. NC-17s are supposed to be racy, raunchy, and nowhere near as good as the real thing... but they're never supposed to be funny.

But Joe Young (Trey Parker), the hapless protagonist of Orgazmo - a Mormon from Utah looking to pay for a Tabernacle marriage whatever way he can - doesn't know anything about Hollywood, and he damn sure doesn't get how things work in the Valley. Joe starts off his stupidity peddling the virtues of the Book of Mormon door to door, only to be greeted by the thugs of the porky porn king, Maxxx Orbison (Michael Dean Jacobs). When said thugs are dispatched by the only black belt Mormon alive, Maxxx decides to offer Joe a career in ho business as the hero in his new porno: Orgazmo.

Team America: World Police Review


OK

Exploding tourist landmarks and idiotic romantic triangles, like an asinine Jerry Bruckheimer blockbuster! Remorseless civilian casualties and bad WMD intelligence, like an U.S.-led war of liberation! Cartoonishly villainous terrorists and dictators like Kim Jong Il! Sanctimonious actors blaming America for the world's ills, like Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins! And Michael Moore blowing up Mount Rushmore!

If nothing else, "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have made sure "Team America: World Police," their marionette mockery of action movies and testosterone-fed ethnocentricity, is an equal-opportunity offender.

Yes, you read right: marionettes. But these are no "Thunderbirds" string-dolls with few movable parts and no facial expressions. They're high-tech -- and anatomically correct.
