Did You Know?


The episode parodies several movies of the 1980s, most of all Better Off Dead... (1985) starring John Cusack. In Better Off Dead, Lane Meyer (Cusack) was teased by Roy Stalin with pig noises and challenged to ski the K12. In South Park, Stan was teased by Tad with chicken sounds and challenged to ski the K13. Tad's inflections in his voice very similar to Roy Stalin's as well. See more »


Kyle Broflovski: [Standing with Cartman and Butters] I can't lose another friend. First Kenny, and now Stan. All I'm going to have left are you two douches.

Solid episode
30 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of my favorite South Park episodes. It is very re-watchable compared to some of the other sixth season installments. My parents went to several of those free this-or-that marketing scams when I was growing up --- which I hated --- and I can definitely relate to that portion of the plot but it's the lampooning of sports movies that makes this episode a winner. The spoofing hits just the right tone. Most notable is the "Montage" song that also made it into "Team America". There's only a few laugh-out loud moments, mostly aimed at Butter's expense by Cartman, but the whole episode is amusing. A gem in a uneven South Park season.
