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?
A Movie Review
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!!!
