Team America: World Police

Team America puppets in a line
Paramount Pictures

Some of us loved it. Some of us were disappointed. "Team America" is an action movie parody using puppets to tell the story of an international police force which learns about a dictator who is brokering weapons of mass destruction to terrorists. "Team America" then recruits a rising star on Broadway to go undercover. Using puppets, the movie does take some good jabs at celebrities and politics. ​It was released in 1994.

Trey Parker in "Orgazmo"

"Orgazmo" pokes (no pun intended) a lot of fun at America's idea of sex, whether it be the Mormon view or the porn industry view. With cheesy music and an outlandish plot involving a Mormon starring in a porn movie, we find this film to be a great big, silly, ridiculous joke. Don't let the NC-17 rating fool you. It's no doubt branded as such only because of the dialogue. ​It was released in 1997.

Cannibal! The Musical

"Cannibal! The Musical" was a student film created and finished during Parker's and Stone's spring break. Not too shabby. The movie is about the sole survivor of a mining expedition who turned to cannibalism. Fans of "South Park" will see the beginnings of the characterization and music they've come to know and love. "Cannibal! The Musical" isn't too gory, considering its subject matter, but it's also not as funny as "South Park." It was released in 1993.

"BASEketball" feels like Parker and Stone filmed it in a rush after the initial success of "South Park" brought them attention. If you're an avid fan of "South Park," you will enjoy the movie and the cred that comes with having watched it. Otherwise, check out the above films for better Stone and Parker humor. It was released in 1998.

South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut

In "Bigger, Longer & Uncut," the "South Park" boys anger their parents when they watch an R-rated movie starring Canadian stars Terrance & Phillip. The parents convince the United States to make war with Canada. The music of this film is brilliant, as acknowledged by an Academy Award nomination. The humor and dialogue are as entertaining as South Park, but there's more payoff since there's more time to tell a story. You have probably seen ​"Bigger, Longer & Uncut" by now, but if not, go! Rent it! Buy it! Enjoy! ​Released: 1999.
