| "My father was an elephant, but that's irrelevant..."
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Maybe I was just in the right mood to watch it, but I found it's casual randomness and altogether ridiculous feel to be more than funny. I do agree that the sets were cheesy, as well as the effects. But it was truly the Shpdoinkle movie of the year. More than once did I burst out with hysterical laughter. I would deem it better than basketball and Orgasmo, and equally the hilarity of Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Love this movie. "That's all I'm asking for!"

Needless to say, after watching it and writing this comment, I am going to go build a snowman...

Did You Know?

Trivia

When Ian Hardin's character is hit in the face with the clever, he turns and mutters, "Children," for no apparent reason. This was the beginning of Parker and Stone developing Chef for South Park.


Quotes

Title Card: The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", it's short lived theater run was canceled, and "Alfred Packer: The Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, ...


Goofs

Right before Packer and the others meet the trappers for the first time, you can clearly see that Leanne is tied up. She is also clearly tied up during the "That's All I'm Asking For!" song. Right after she ran away, Noon asks Packer if she was tied up and Packer replies that he never ties her up.


Crazy Credits

(At the end of the closing credits) Due to the graphic nature of this film, it should not have been watched by small children.


Alternate Versions

The film was originally prepared as a three-minute joke "trailer" shown at Trey Parker's college in Colorado. The cast is largely the same, although there is no Polly Prye yet, and most of the scenes in the "trailer" are matched in the final movie, including the songs "Let's Build a Snowman" and "On Top of You." There are also one or two songs not used in the final movie, though. In this version Packer, upon seeing the bodies of his mutilated companions, lets out a loud scream which gradually changes into a musical note, and he starts to sing a funky number. He sings something similar at the end of the trailer too. Although in the final movie, characters played by Matt Stone and Dian Bachar never develop facial hair, this version shows everyone growing at least a moustache, even Matt. This cheap and amusing "trailer" is sometimes actually used as the trailer for the final film [Although the final film does have its own trailer]. The title of the original trailer [And the original cut of the movie] was "Alferd Packer: The Musical," but of course all Troma releases replace the title cards with new ones reading "Cannibal: The Musical." Versions of the original trailer and the final film with both titles are circulating somewhere.
