The one thing I noticed while attempting to breathe during this movie
was that people were walking out in between bursts of hysterical
Unfortunately, this movie is not for everyone. I wish it didn't offend
some but it does. So, if you want to know whether you will enjoy this
film or not, you must answer "yes" to the following:
1. I am not offended by the "F" word. Being repeated 300 times.
2. I am not offended by intense marionette sex.
3. I am not offended by racial satire.
4. I am not offended by ridiculous political satire.
5. I am not a member of the Film Actor's Guild.
If you're like me and have answered "yes" to the above five questions,
go see this film. You will laugh so hard it will hurt and you will
giggle about it for the next week thereafter.
I have to say that I am very desensitized when it comes these kinds of
films, and I'd say that Team America has raised the bar in derogatory
humor. But that only made it more hilarious. I give it 5 stars, two
thumbs up, 10 out of 10; it was flawless. But...
On the other hand, if you're not like me, you might find yourself
walking out by the third time you hear the song, "America, F*** Yeah!"
