If you like the wacky comedy of John Ritter of Harvey Korman, this is the movie for you. This film has a star-studded cast that can only be rivaled by an episode of "The Love Boat"! Such stars as Fred Willard (Roseanne, Fernwood2Nite), Meat Loaf (Rocky Horror Picture Show), Elvis Costello and the irrepressible George Carlin as the narrator contribute to this movie's legacy. See how the world has decided the peace is better than war. See if the leaders of the powerful "Hebrab Republic" can stop looking at blondes long enough to buy the US. Vietnam as SE Asia's "French Riviera" (what a prediction!) Show you patriotism and see if President Roosevelt's idea can save the US (minus San Diego)!
