I ceaselessly ask myself:
Great Movie or,
Greatest Movie Ever!
If you can get past the puppet sex and the offensive language, this movie carries a deeply philosophical message about the role and responsibilities of a World Super Power in an increasingly shrinking and connected world.
Regardless of the amazing fact that this movie uses no CG and that every action sequence was filmed live, and that every set was painstakingly created by some of the most crafted miniature artists in the World, and cast with the World's most skilled Marionette puppeteers (Yes, Big Budget!).
(And it conjures up images of the 1960's Thunder Birds!)
This is a Parody of every Jerry Bruckheimer film ever made but ...
Beneath the juvenile, bathroom humor, puppet sodomy and gratuitous vomiting, is a sobering and important exploration of the morality and ethics surrounding the question of who should be the World's Guardians of Peace, Law and Order.
When North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-il hatches a terrorist plot, it's a call to action for Team America -- an army of heavily armed puppets deployed to bring insurgents to justice. But North Korea isn’t its only enemy: A battalion of Hollywood left-wingers poo-pooing the team’s world-policing tactics must also be addressed.
This is an elite satire that after decades of endless war has only increased in relevance. It’s also an influential film, having tinged parodies from the whip-smart "Borat" to recent and raunchy music industry spoof "Stadium Anthems." For over 15 years, the smartly hilarious “Team America: World Police” has proved as enduring as the wartime lunacy it mocks. - (Was this review of use to you? If so, let me know by clicking "Helpful." Cheers!)
WATCHED IT? THEN WATCHLIST: "Borat," "Stadium Anthems," "Sausage Party."
That sense of humor comes right at you. In the first scene, a group of terrorists who look like they just walked out of the caves of Afghanistan are intercepted in Paris by Team America. There’s a bunch of shooting and martial arts involved. Then things flip to Team America recruiting an actor who ran a successful musical with the lead song being about how everyone has AIDS. The actor thinks the man from Team America wants to have sex with him so he can get a movie part. Because it was a film format with an R rating the guys from South Park got to push things even more with the jokes and cursing. If that sounds up your alley then you’ll enjoy Team America.

I am a fan of the guys work (you probably guessed that by now) but if you have never seen anything from the team and don't get offended by Adult Themes give it a try. Highly recommended.
you can tell it's trey and matt style from the very start especially Gary's and Chris' pasts.
i've been wanting to see this film for a while and I don't know why i only just bought it, i wish i bought it ages ago now that's how much i loved it!
I don't know why but the use of marionette puppets just made it more amazing than it would have if live action actors were used.
Trey as kim jong il was just the icing on the cake lol.
pity they didn't make a sequel, that would have been sweet!
Trey Parker might be in the top five of creative souls in our lifetimes,
Aside from Baseketball everything he does is at a level of quality and execution that is almost untouched.
If you don't 'get it' don't sweat it, go about your lives. If you do get it, all, you're a lucky person and better off for discovering the genius of Trey Parker.
If you're ever in New York City or similar have a look at the live musical The Book of Mormon.
