Sean Penn was so insulted by the filmmakers' suggestion that there was "no shame in not voting" that he wrote an angry letter to Matt Stone and Trey Parker with the closing "a sincere fuck you, Sean Penn." See more »

The last song played at the end of the credits is best known as "You Are Worthless Alec Baldwin" and is not featured in the film itself. Kim Jong Il sings about his trials and tribulations, and his hate for Alec Baldwin. This song is not on the soundtrack album. See more »
It's not Gone With the Wind, but it is a great movie! Parker & Stone push the envelope again and again in this off the wall comedy that would make Jim Henson stand up and cheer. Any comedy that portrays Kim Jong Il as a lonely, confused and mad dictator deserves an audience. The creators of South Park pock fun at politics, celebrities, terrorism, James Bond, and puppets, while also creating a funny and well done musical soundtrack that is better than the South Park Musical / Comedy. Off the wall for most of the movie, the puppets having sex only is worth accepting this movie into the cinematic hall of fame. The vomit scene, the death of Kim Jong Il, the musical score, the montage parody and the production value are all worth it. A movie for all South Park fans, this blows (literally) Base-ket Ball out of the theater.
