I liked this film very much. It makes fun of everyone without getting offensive or condescending. And it's critical, something that is very rare these days.
This film takes on the Bush-administration, American Idol, Islamic terrorism and our society's obsession with TV and stardom. The film has some very good lines: "Did you know there are three kinda Iraqistans? Or: I'm not attracted to other people, but if you want me you can have me." I dunno, it wasn't hilarious or something. It was just smart and honest. Like good satire was meant to be: like looking in a mirror and be able to laugh at yourself without feeling bad.
