Quotes

Cartman: [on the phone] See you don't understand what Mel Gibson was trying to do. He was trying to express, through cinema, the horror and filthiness of the common Jew. It has made people the world over open their eyes.
Stan: [Doesn't recognize Cartman] Look, Kid, we just thought it was a bad movie. Tell us how we can get in touch with Mel Gibson so we can get our money back.
Cartman: If I knew where Mel Gibson was, I'd be down on the floor licking his balls at this very moment. All I know is that he lives somewhere in...

I liked Passion...and still GREATLY enjoyed this episode!
17 April 2009 | by (Topeka,Kansas,USA) – See all my reviews

The boys see Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ and react thusly: Stan and Kenny dislike it,seeing it as little more than a big-budget snuff film;Kyle sees it last and is horrified by it,reading the Jewish arch(stereo?)types into the movie and deciding that he needs to bring this to light amongst his fello0w Jews;and Eric Cartman actually saw it before the other three--37 times!--loved it,and is moved to lead a "movement" to deal with the Jews that looks scarily familiar. That, the ensuing clash between the local Jews and Cartman's "Reichstag"-type mob and Stan and Kyle's confrontation of Mel Gibson(to get their $18 back,of course!)is basically this show in a nutshell.

Another poster said that this show,being so spot-on,was(and I'm paraphrasing here)not going to appeal to Gibson fans,the religious right or people who loved Passion. Well,I lost enchantment with Mr.Gibson a while ago,and I'm not much of a religious conservative,but I thought that the Passion of the Christ was actually a very well-made movie(albeit uber-bloody and NOT for all audiences)that I'm pretty sure(though I have a few doubts)was made with no real intention of anti-Semitism,yet I still enjoyed this ep quite a bit. Probably due to the fact that,among other reasons "Non-voting Republicans" Matt and Trey are able to break with their usual sense of putting the hard skepticism on only liberal stars/sacred cows for this ep,skewering this movie that was the pet of religious conservatives and,by that measure,people like FOX News.

At the risk of sounding like I'm parroting,this show is one of the truly best eps of the last seven or so seasons,right up there with "Tom Cruise in the Closet","The Whore-Off", the Hennifer Lopez episode(the name escapes me)and--so I'm told,I haven't seen this one yet--"Imaginationland". It's re-running somewhere,and it's worth seeing,first time or again.
