How unusual it is to see a movie wherein the best parts are not in the trailer. But that is not what makes this a non-traditional Hollywood movie. It is that the movie is unabashedly anti-liberal, anti-media-establishment, pro-military, and pro-American. This movie has more than its share of stupid, slapstick scenes. What else do you expect from a movie with Leslie Nielsen? All Three Stooges similarities aside, no minority group is safe from being a punchline here. The humor is bold and edgy at times. The point of the movie would seem to be that Michael Moore is a left-wing pinhead, a bloated, self-indulgent fool whose lies are shameful and hurtful to America. But there is a greater message here. Average Americans will bust a gut laughing at the silliness of the slapstick comedy. The more perceptive viewers will enjoy the unique experience of a mainstream movie that is firmly rooted in mainstream American principles that are lacking in most Hollywood movies and broadcast television networks.
