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
This film makes its points against Michael Moore and the left leaning political party by stooping to the level of what it is accusing the other side of doing itself. In one scene it shows an alternate America without the civil war having existed and shows African Americans as slaves, satirizing stereotypical slaves; and yet in the real world within the movie the middle eastern characters are supposedly just as thoughtless and evil. It argues against documentaries lying in order to make money and tell the audience what it wants to hear; and yet it is impossible to believe that this film isn't made to simply appease those who already have a vendetta against Moore or that it isn't wanting to make a profit off of the disagreement and divisiveness of the politics behind it.
It's a movie that seems to imply that all that are involved believe in the message of the movie... however I would hope that this is not true. It's a weak argument that full of embarrassing moments of stubbornness and humor at the cost of historical correctness. It is sad that Leslie Neilson had anything to do with the film, much less the fact that it was one of his last. After watching this film you'll have to remember that these actors and this director once did projects which had class and honest to goodness good sense. This film has none of either.
