South Park meets Sausage Party
13 February 2017 | by felixunderwoodSee all my reviews

I am a huge fan of these types of animated cartoon feature films. South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America, and The Simpsons have been my go-to animated movies for years and I'm always excited when one I haven't seen comes along. Sausage Party is a new addition to that list, and now so is The Trouble with Terkel.

Team America is another one of my favorites but that's not really animated, so I can't really include it in this aside from using the humor as a good comparison. The Trouble with Terkel is right up there in terms of that style of joking around.

First let me say that, this ain't no Disney movie! So get that idea right out of your head. If you're looking for that kind of animated film then I dare say you won't like this. However, if you do like the over-the-top gags and the semi-crude joke now and again, then you'll like this. If you're a fan of South Park and The Simpsons, I'd even say if you're like me then you will love it.

The story follows a bullied kid (Terkel) who has parents that don't care or listen and a disaffected best friend. He's got a school staff that all but ignores him and a couple of bullies that ruin his existence. But that all changes when something in particular happens (I don't want to ruin it) and his life and priorities get a bit screwed up.

As things get crazier, Terkel reaches out to his completely nutty and hilarious Uncle who is too busy singing, dancing, drinking, and cavorting to pay any attention and has zero interest in actually helping him.

Terkel ends up on an overnight school camping trip where the tension really ramps up and there's a nice plot twist leading to a really great showdown. And at the end of the movie there's a funny animated outtake reel that runs along with the credits, which I enjoyed.

So if you're into the South Park, Beavis and Butt-Head style of funny, you will dig this movie.
