Wow--what a rough start!
29 July 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This short film was co-written by Trey Parker of South Park fame. It's amazing to see that just a year or so after this very, very rough film Parker made CANNIBAL: THE MUSICAL (though released three years later). The difference in quality of the two projects is astounding--like comparing a painting by a 3 year-old to a DaVinci painting!! The film consists of a Japanese student narrating a rather sketchy and only occasionally silly history of America in only five minutes. As I said, it's not all that funny and the graphics appear to be very, very, very crude approximations of the South Park style of cut-out animations.

The bottom line is that this isn't a particularly good short film, though it is worth seeing if you are a Parker fan and are dying to see some of his early work. However, I really think you'd be better off watching the cannibal musical or watching Parker and Stone's short YOUR STUDIO AND YOU. American HISTORY is rather slow going and not exactly something you need to see!
