Editorial Reviews

From the inventive mind of Jeff Dunham comes the first animated movie starring the world’s most beloved, failed bad guy. Get ready to see Achmed the Dead Terrorist like you’ve never seen him before! In Achmed Saves America, the Little Skeleton That Couldn’t unexpectedly finds himself in Americaville, USA. There, Achmed is mistaken as a French exchange student while he bumblingly plots to destroy the town and all its “infidels.” But when exposed to the sweet things in life, including all-you-can-eat buffets and frozen yogurt, Achmed’s campaign of hate turns into a patriotic all-American lovefest. For the first time, Jeff Dunham brings his unique brand of comedy to a whole new medium as creator and voice-star of Achmed Saves America.

1.0 out of 5 stars waste of money, seriously Jeff, WHY? March 20, 2014
Format:Blu-ray
I Love Jeff Dunham, and everything he's done. I could watch all of his movies a hundred times. This, however, is GARBAGE. I don't think I laughed once, and I shut it off 1/2 way through. It's really unfortunate you can't return movies now-a-days because I feel like I just threw money away on this. Save yourself the time and money and just watch some old school Jeff Dunham instead.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Another Cartoon March 19, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I've loved everything Jeff Dunham has done from the beginning, but after having just watched this, I can't say I was all that impressed with it.

Overall, it was extremely lacking in comedic value. Normally watching one of Jeff Dunham's specials, I spend the entire time laughing uncontrollably. This... Well... There were a few small jokes that made me giggle. That was about it.

The cartoon seems entirely focused on the story line and not at all focused on comedy. The beginning part of the movie leading up to him arriving in America was drawn-out and, to put it simply, boring. The rest of the story was somewhat interesting, but again, i was expecting a lot more comedy than was present.

Ultimately, I think it was the lack of interaction between Dunham and Achmed that made this cartoon less interesting than a stand-up special. Normally on stage they're cracking jokes at each other's expense, and the atmosphere is much more lively. The animation completely removes Dunham from the picture, along with a lot of his comedy.

Jeff had better stick to what he does best- stand up Cartoons are not the same. I couldn't even watch it to the end. Don't get me wrong I have always been and always will be a big fan of his.

1.0 out of 5 stars I waited a week March 28, 2014
Format:DVD
Jeff fafa Dunham set the bar too high. Following it up with a shell of a cartoon makes a rich character seem....well, one dimentional. It will be a long time for me to re watch the really great live stage stuff. Not your best...and ripping off coyote and Roadrunner? Come on man you're a genius

By jennyr
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the item we received was made in Mexico and for viewing in Region 1 only so it will not play in our DVD player. I feel this should not have been shipped to us if was not going to be suitable for us therefore a waste of our money on this item.

I like Jeff Dunham's work but he missed the mark with this one. I hope that his Vegas venture is better than this.

The video is fun. I do not regret buying it. The problem is that Jeff Dunham's charm and wit far out shine in "live" performances than in a "voice-over" cartoons. Read more
