BASEketball | 1998 | R | - 5.5.7

Trey Parker and Matt Stone become stars when a game they invented is turned into a professional sport. Also with Yasmine Bleeth, Jenny McCarthy, Ernest Borgnine, Robert Vaughn, Dian Bachar, Bob Costas, Al Michaels, Robert Stack, Dan Patrick, Reggie Jackson and Kenny Mayne. [1:43]

SEX/NUDITY 5 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to masturbation, necrophilia and sexually transmitted diseases). Some kissing, including two scenes of french-kissing, one passionate and one between men. Twice, we see the bare shoulders of an obviously naked couple; in one scene, the man is behind the woman but there's no sexual movement and in the other scene they kiss. A man's hands are in his pants and he appears to be masturbating. We see nude men covered with towels lying on tables. We see several men's bare buttocks and briefly see a few men's obviously fake genitalia. Lots of cheerleaders in cleavage- and buttock-revealing outfits dance suggestively. A man licks a phallic object.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Mainly played for laughs: During a hockey game, a man's head is knocked off (we see the severed head with a trail of blood on the ice) and a man cuts off his finger (we see the bloody stump and blood spurting on his face); both scenes appear to be very fake. We see a ribbon pinned to a bare chest with blood dripping from it. We see a man hanging in closet. Lots of people fall and two men are thrown; one crashes into a wall and the other flies into a fireworks display (we see an explosion afterwards). A man is sucked into a jacuzzi and a man is shocked with electric paddles. A man pounds another's head in a door, a man is slapped, a man is knocked down (we hear him being stepped on), a man is kicked and hit in head with a board and a man is kicked and hit in crotch with a ball. A kid cracks his head into the top of door and a man hits his head on a basketball hoop. A man is tossed between people and he screams as they punch him. Players hit each other hard during a game; one person is wheeled off the field. A dog attacks a man, and is in turn hit with a ball and yelps. Many scenes of animals being run over during a fake TV show. A man wipes feces on his face and it's implied that a man is drinking cellulite through a straw. A man squirts milk from his nipples. We see a couple of people urinating and hear a couple of people vomit. People are pelted with eggs. One riot scene.

LANGUAGE 7 - About 15 F-words, some obscene finger gestures, lots of scatological and anatomical references and lots of mild obscenities and insults.

DISCUSSION TOPICS - Basketball, baseball, friendship, professional sports teams.

MESSAGE - This film is as tasteless as the TV show the stars created -- "South Park."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
