At a July 4 barbecue, gramps tells the kids the story of Michael Malone, a documentary filmmaker and Michael Moore look-alike who hates America and wants to abolish July 4th. He refuses to celebrate with his nephew Josh, who's shipping out soon to the Middle East. That night, Michel has a vision of his hero, JFK, who predicts that three ghosts will visit Michael. Sure enough, General Patton, George Washington, and country music star Trace Adkins visit Michael show him the fruits of patriotism, just wars, and pacifism. Meanwhile, Arab terrorists want Malone to help them with a propaganda film. Is he the next Leni Riefenstahl or will he see the light? Written by

When the two filmmaker-terrorists were trying to convince Michael Malone that Aziz was an actual terrorist, Michael had several flashbacks of Aziz acting suspiciously. One of the flashbacks was of Aziz dancing at a party with explosives around his waste. This scene was not in the released version! Michael "recalled" something that had not happened. See more »

Uh! Because it's an outrageous lampoon of a group of people who take themselves way too seriously. It's a comedy! The movie is not supposed to be taken seriously. I am amazed at how many people want this movie to succeed or fail because they think that it has some great political significance. This movie is just an outrageous irreverent comedy like Airplane, Hot Shots, Naked Gun, etc. Surely these actors and directors would have been capable of making a serious movie about their politics with serious comments on serious issues if that were their intention. Instead they made a movie that lampoons extreme liberalism with ridiculous characters on both sides of their story. News Flash: Liberals are fair targets for ridicule and humor. You would think that this was a lampoon of a major religion or something the way people are reacting. Look around dudes! There is plenty of conservative lampooning going on out there!
The movie is typical of its type and it is funny. The fact that it lampoons the far left makes it unique and a must see since apparently that type of Hollywood sacrilege is so rare that people don't even know how to react to this movie.
Of course, movies of this type never make a killing at the box office and critics typically hate them. Still there are plenty of warped people (myself included) who love outrageous comedy.
If you are a mad dog liberal you may feel like the USSR is collapsing all over again while watching this movie. If you are a radical conservative you might feel that you are watching a documentary or maybe Best Picture of the Year. If you are a typical American with a warped "Naked Gun" type sense of humor then you are the target of this movie and you will find plenty to laugh at.
I recommend this movie.
