Notable mentions is Kevin Farley's protrayal as Micheal Moore (Malone) as buffonish, arrogant, hardheaded, selfish, and inconsiderate were right on the mark given reports of Moore's arrogance in real life. Kelsey Grammer was great as General Patton and Jon Voight's protrayal of George Washington was really touching. Dennis Hopper was one good choice that made the George Romero homage scene work (Ken Forre would have been good too and Duane Jones would have been perfect but he's sadly deceased) and it was a good surprise to see regular tough-guy actor Robert Davi can do comedy as a modern day Moe. I don't expect liberals to like it as my dealings with them have shown me that they have no sense of humor whatsoever, but I highly recommend it. I think it would be best enjoyed with a showing of "Team America."
UPDATE: I purchased the DVD from a Best Buy on the release date and it was almost sold out by 2 P.M. Great!
The movie is what it is, a lampoon of mainly the looney left and it takes some shots at the right as well, but the intent was to peel the scab off of the phony elitist, we know what's best for you crowd.
Some out and out belly laughs and was enjoyable as all heck (must be politically correct) and you can watch it with your liberal and conservative friends as everyone with a brain stem should realize that it is SATIRE and nothing else.
If you want great cinema, go rent one of those long and boring 4 hour long movies that hollyweird loves so much, the ones with the great reviews and Oscar nods, that do nothing at the box office.
This did fairly well for the little publicity it got as many gutless networks wouldn't sell time to the indy distributor but they had nightly Obama hour long lovefests (see NBC, MSDNC, CBS, ABC, PBS), but that would make Hollyweird and their media friends the "typical" gutless crowd that we know they are.
Grab some popcorn and invite ALL your friends over from both sides and laugh a while, you are allowed too.
One thing I must mention before getting to the review is the amount of negative criticism aimed at this movie. It is probably the only movie supporting pro-American sentiments among the plethora of anti-American ones. And like pigs to the slaughter, liberals beat this thing down like like a whack-a-mole game. But when conservatives assert their views over liberally biased movies and news/television shows, we are considered ignorant, stupid, unintelligent, (apologies for redundancy). Thank you Zucker for this film, and it's too bad you decided against a sequel. It doesn't help that this movie was shown in an extremely small amount of theaters, thus assisting in its money shortage. Yet movies with liberal bias can't find enough theaters to infest. Now on with the review.
In short, I liked this movie. It was short, entertaining, and quick with the humor, both verbal and slapstick. Farley acts in comparison with his late brother, the only thing that may have made this better, would have been seeing David Spade by his side. I always hoped Kevin would gain a staring role. Maybe this will help him, maybe it will hurt him. This movie doesn't preach war mongering, but the idea of fighting is suggested as needed at the right times. This movie is a conservatively biased movie, yet they use John F. Kennedy, a Democratic President, as a Jacob Marleyesque character. Conservatives are not out to destroy the world, they simply accept that like a school yard bully, words are not always the answer, but they can be a good place to start.
Like "A Christmas Carol" Farly's character deals with three ghosts, Kelsey Grammers ghost being the one most seen.Read more ›
