Question: Why was this movie released in the UK through Warner Bros (at least on DVD), and not Paramount? I'm getting the Paramount information from a corrected entry about how the Paramount logo changes into the South Park Mountain.

Chosen answer: Viacom and Time Warner jointly owned Comedy Central, and Comedy Central owned the rights to South Park. Paramount is the parent company of Viacom and Warner Bros is the parent company of Time Warner. So essentially they agreed to split distribution, in what has been described as a "jump ball", with Paramount taking the US and WB taking the international markets.
