A Foreshadow of Genius
18 January 2002 | by (raleigh, nc) – See all my reviews

In thinking about it, it might even be better than South Park. It's straightforward, fairly simple, and funny. Really, a brilliant little film. I've only seen this once on a horrible stream from a now defunct website and was impressed with both the writing/narration (both obviously Trey Parker with Matt Stone) and the fact that so many famous people made appearances and treated it seriously.

An example? Seeing Steven Spielberg driving the Jaws ride and getting zero reaction to his enthusiasm was a moment in cinematic history that barely anyone will get to see if this doesn't get released somehow.
