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."
Part of my willingness to forgive the lower-than-par production value was my sense of delight at finding someone who understands how we feel--those of us who are part of the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country. We are increasingly marginalized by the liberal media, treated as stereotypical hypocrites by Hollywood, and snubbed in the halls of higher learning. The fact that it came from David Zucker of Airplane fame rather than a fellow Christian makes it all the more gratifying.
The basic premise of the film is that a documentary filmmaker named Michael Malone (an obvious parody of Michael Moore) is seeking to ban the Fourth of July, while Islamic terrorists are trying to blow up Madison Square Garden. Malone has a Dickensesque experience and is visited by three ghosts of America past--Patton, Washington and the Angel of Death. Along the way, Zucker irrevererntly pokes fun at Islamofascism, the liberal media, liberal higher education, the ACLU and, most of all, Michael Moore (played by Kevin Farley). Cameos by Leslie Nielsen, Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, James Woods, Dennis Hopper, Bill O'Reilly, and country singer Trace Adkins as the Angel of Death add to the fun.
Video and audio quality: the blu-ray transfer is fine, although this is not the kind of movie where it matters much. If you already have the DVD, it is probably not worth upgrading.Read more ›
UPDATE: I purchased the DVD from a Best Buy on the release date and it was almost sold out by 2 P.M. Great!
This 2008 film has all of the normal ingredients of a David Zucker film - slapstick, swearing, goofy humor, pratfalls, silly characters, and (of course) Leslie Nielson. But, to spice up the movie, it's full of excellent actors, including Kelsey Grammer, Dennis Hopper (in one of his last movie appearances), Trace Adkins, Gary Coleman and Jillian Murray, with Jon Voight bringing in a scene-stealing appearance as George Washington.
Yeah, this is a movie shot with a definite Conservative slant to it. If you are a Liberal, you will no doubt find the movie to be nothing short of infuriating. But, if you are a Conservative, you will enjoy seeing the Liberal sacred cows being gored left and right (OK, right anyway), and Liberal shibboleths being held up to piercing ridicule.
Yep, I'll admit it, I am a Conservative, and I found this movie to be hilariously funny. My son and I watched it through yet again, laughing out loud over and over again. We both enjoyed this movie and both give it a big thumbs up!

The company that sold the movie was great...just really wasn't that good of a movie. Like always Leslie Nielsen is hilarious, but he doesn't have a big role. Read morePublished 2 months ago by wehrestate

Funny Airplane-like movie that is not politically correct. If you are a Michael Moore or Rosier O'Donnell fan then you will not like this movie. Read morePublished 7 months ago by J. Wood
