Rented the unrated version. I thought it was pretty funny. There were some moments that had me laughing out loud.
However, the infamous "unrated" part was probably just as well left out. I believe I read somewhere that it was just put there to distract the MPAA from other material, and that Parker actually didn't even want to put it on the DVD. Stone then talked him into it. Of course, I don't know how much truth is in that story.
Also, for those who saw the theatrical version...
Is the extended projectile vomiting in the theatrical version?
I have to admit I was laughing at that, but it probably wasn't really needed, either.
If I do buy this, I'll probably go with the R-rated one. Normally, I'd prefer the unrated version, but in this case, I have a feeling the theatrical cut might work better. It's not that I was that offended by those two bits; they just seemed to stick out, since there weren't a lot of other "gross-out" gags (unless you count all the puppet body parts flying around).
They do it all the time on South Park
, so it doesn't seem as out of place there.
's satirical stuff (of all the sides) had me rolling, though.
Thanks for the review, Scott, and for being fair.
