A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:38 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
At the end of "Team America: World Police," along with being highly entertained, I wondered if any little tikes might have been walking past the theater doors as the anthem "America, Fuck Yea!" was blaring. Ah, they already use that word already, at least they didnít see the puppets having sex, that may have really scarred them for life, wondering forever how you get in a certain position that really seemed physically impossible. But enough about the impact of the movie on the youth of the world, what about the movie?

Well, the boys from "South Park" have done it again, those boys being Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and done it again being make a funny movie if you can get past being politically correct or taking things too seriously. This time they use puppets, or more specifically, marionettes, to develop Team America, a group of men and women hell-bent on making the world safe from terrorists. Sure, in the meantime they destroy a landmark or dozen, but hey, at least we are safe. As the movie opens and the team saves Paris, they lose one of their members. Spottswoode, the organizer of the team, recruits Gary from the cast of "Lease" (get it, a knock on the musical "Rent), to take his place, infiltrate a terrorist group, and figure out the next plan. As it turns out, and eventually the Team figures it out, the next attack is being planned by North Korea leader Kim John II, as he uses the actors and actresses of Hollywood to trick the world into thinking he is good. In between we get a love story and puppet sex, we get a puppet vomiting scene that I was totally grossed out during, but yet couldnít stop watching, and we get a Michael Moore puppet blowing up the Team American headquarters. And, in the end, yes, Team America saves the day, and a sequel is set up in case the movie does really well at the box office.

Look, if you like "South Park" or the other humor Parker and Stone have put out, you will probably love "Team America: World Police." If you donít, or think we shouldnít be making light of terrorists in this day and age, stay away. Me, I loved this movie because I could take it for what it is. I mean, how funny is it to have marionettes "acting", and as they are trapped and being told panthers are going to come and eat them, two live, black cats, come in and be the panthers. Who wouldnít find that funny?

Too many things made me laugh during this film, and for me itís 4 Ĺ stars out of 5. You probably already know if you will like this movie or not, so itís your money, spend it if you want.

Thatís it for this one! Iím The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
