The boys are excited when their heroes, Canadian comedy duo Terrance and Phillip, release a new movie. But when the children of South Park begin repeating the foul language from the film, their parents unite in a campaign to rid the world of toilet humour and bad language. The campaign soon escalates beyond control, with America and Canada going to war and the proposed execution of Terrance and Phillip. The children of the town decide to launch a counterattack by forming a resistance group, hoping to save their idols before it is too late.
A biting satire poking fun at censorship, the movie raises the question of how much responsibility lies with the media and how much lies with parents, when it comes to the effects of television on children.
The movie is also the first time Kenny McCormick's entire face is revealed to the audience, and his voice heard clearly. The voice of Kenny is provided by Beavis and Butthead/King of the Hill creator Mike Judge.
