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.

Sure enough, General Patton, George Washington, and country music star Trace Adkins visit Michael show him the fruits of patriotism, just wars, and pacifism.

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 »
a movie that reinforces and praises blind faith in America
I enjoy watching funny comedies - even the mindless ones that require a suspension of judgment. What I do not like about this movie is that it makes a statement, an absurd statement, which cannot be made in a non- comedic way, yet is meant to be taken seriously.
I do not consider myself political, but I do know that there are attitudes that are detrimental to human progress and well-being. It seems to me that the irrationalism that defines American neo- conservativism is not harmless 'ignorance is bliss'. The only reason that there is a "liberal slant" in the American media is that the "conservative slant" is not convincing to the younger generation of thinking people. That is why every documentary, political or not, that I have ever seen or heard of, is liberal-friendly. Because by making a comedic argument to be serious comes off as an ironic farce - which is precisely what this movie is.
Putting the political statements aside, it is just not funny.
