The North American anti-terrorist force Team America attacks a group of terrorist in Paris. Later, the leader of the organization, Spottswoode, invites the famous Broadway actor Gary Johnston to join his world police and work undercover in Cairo in a terrorist organization and disclose their plan of destroying the world.

Bill Pope had planned on shooting the film with anamorphic lenses in order to replicate the classic "action film look", but was unable to because there were no anamorphic lenses available that could focus close enough to the puppets. See more »
(at around 3 mins) we see the inside of Team Base for the first time. In this scene, and all later scenes in this location, both male and female characters have black eyeliner. Outside of Team Base, the characters do not have black eyeliner. See more »

The last song played at the end of the credits is best known as "You Are Worthless Alec Baldwin" and is not featured in the film itself. Kim Jong Il sings about his trials and tribulations, and his hate for Alec Baldwin. This song is not on the soundtrack album. See more »
Just came back from a pre-screening and I 'Loved It' No, it's not for kids in the least, total adult humor. Helps a bit if your politically savvy and know a bit about the Hollywood political types, yet either way, if you like South Park type of humor, your in for a load full of laughs.
They creatively took most every corny film shot you could think of, plenty of down right nasty language, marionettes getting shot and blown up in some pretty disgusting ways, parody songs that would make anyone blush, pop shots at world leaders, actors (big time), and anyone else you could think of and hit a home run with this as far as I'm concerned.
I wont say anymore except that these guys did a great job with this idea and I think it's going to make a mint! If you take it all in humorous perspective and not personally, (have some fun with it), this movie can take the laugh breath right out of you. As it did the whole audience just within the first 15 minutes without even a chance for a second breath.
Crude, rude, shrewd, corny, sexual, homophobic, nasty and irreverent will only begin to describe..."Team America World Police" I hope you enjoy it.
