A "South Park" and "Beavis and Butthead" for the Southern Cone
16 February 2005 | by (Portland, Oregon) – See all my reviews

"Mercano, the Martian" is the first full-length animated movie made in Argentina. Heavily influenced by the crude graphic styles and jokes of "South Park" and "Beavis and Butthead", "Mercano" uses the trademark gore and grossness of those shows to make its comedic points while delivering serious warnings about technology and globalization. There are also jokes about plastic surgery and psychiatry – two uniquely Argentine obsessions – that you would only find in a picture set in Buenos Aires as well as depressingly accurate depictions of that city's tough street life. This is odd but entertaining movie made even more enjoyable by a big ending that includes a South Park-style musical number.
