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
The way you see this movie will depend on how you see politics. My son and I saw the very first showing in our town. We loved it enough to go right back with my wife and daughter to see it again. If you love America and you love someone in the military, you will like it. If you are a liberal then you don't have a sense of humor about liberal things and you will hate it. (See some of the other reviews.) It's not Casablanca. The actors are not Tracy and Hepburn. But I was surprised by the actors they did get to play in this movie. I saw an interview tonight on the O'Reilly Factor with Kevin Farley and Kelsy Grammar. They both agreed that they would be hurt in Hollywood for making this movie. I also heard an interview with director David Zucker, who said that his brother wanted to make sure that no one thought he was in any way involved with this. But some of the other actors were surprises: I had heard that John Voight was conservative, but Dennis Hopper? or Leslie Nielsen? or James Woods? or Robert Davi? The sight gags are mostly in line with other Leslie Nielsen films and the kids are especially cute. Like I said, this is not high melodrama. But real Americans will laugh, applaud and maybe even shed a tear. And they will tell their real American friends to go see this movie.
