Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
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. The Team America destroy the cell of terrorists, but then the Panama Canal is attacked by the criminals as a payback. Gary feels responsible for the death of many innocents and leaves the counter-terrorism organization. When the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Il, joins a group of pacifist actors and actresses with the intention of using weapons of massive destruction, the Team America tries to avoid the destruction of the world.

Above the front entrance of the Film Actors' Guild building there are two quotes on acting by two equally famous poets of theater. On the left side is William Shakespeare's famous quote, "All the world's a stage and we are merely actors in it." On the right is satirical poet Alexander Pope's quote, "Act well your part, therein all honor lies." See more »
When the world leaders meet at Kim Jong-il's peace conference the sign above Tony Blair's head reads as England. Tony Blair was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom (which consists of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), not just England. See more »

The one thing I noticed while attempting to breathe during this movie was that people were walking out in between bursts of hysterical laughter.
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!"
