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.

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.

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.

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. I can understand the experiment but I am not so much a fan.
Again, I will re-watch it because it is cute but Jeff Dunham shines on stage, not as a cartoon.

Achmed out does himself in saving America. He almost gets soft hearted, but snaps back to "I Keel You" at the last second. A fun movie to watch. lots of laughs and Jeff Dunham has outdone himself on this one.

I absolutely love Jeff Dunham and have watched his performances on TV whenever the come on. I have never tired of him and couldn't wait to get this movie. My husband loves cartoons and was anxious to see it also. The day the DVD arrived I put it in the player, started it just as he came into the room and the smile he gave when it started was great. Within 10 minutes he was asleep, I tried very hard to like it, but just couldn't. We thought it would have Jeff somewhere in it. I am not a cartoon person so just couldn't get interested in it at all. Even Achmed (we really like his character in Jeff's shows) couldn't hold our interest. What a disappointment.

First, let me say, that I truly enjoy Jeff Dunham's performances, as they are funny and made me laugh in all his episodes EXCEPT this one.
Jeff branched out into cartooning his talent, and as far as I am concerned into a disaster. This cartoon is ill conceived and not worth watching at all. In fact when I was done watching, rather then saving the DVD, I put it in the round file, never to be seen again. Sorry Mr Dunham for forcing me to write a bad review. But, I still watch your performances and own every one of your other DVD's. They are hilarious.

I was happy when I received this DVD, but after watching it, I wasn't all that thrilled with the story line. Between this and the short-lived TV series, I don't know which I'd prefer. I'll just stick with the concert DVDs; they're more entertaining; at least in my opinion. Sorry, Jeff. I know all the hard work that goes into each show, and you made a great effort in this cartoon, but I didn't care for it. And that's okay. One can't please everyone and one can't like all of it.
