Team America: World Police (2004)
One of the funniest movies I've seen a long time (WARNING: possible spoilers)
I saw this movie last night at a preview, and from the first moment, I was laughing my a** off! I did not have high hopes at first for this movie, when I first saw the trailer, but after thinking about it and realizing it was from the makers of "South Park" I knew it would probably be really funny. It is a terrible movie from a realistic stand point to be sure, but when you look past that and think about the irony and listen to the jokes (not so subtle btw) it is extremely funny!! The movie is about a not so secret team of Americans who police the world and fight terrorists. Gary, an actor, is recruited to to join them because only his skills can help save the world. Along the way he falls in love with the Team's blond. The movie spares no one, and even pokes fun at itself, like when the main actor puppet, Gary, is thinking about joining Team America, we see him actually visit various American monuments. The movie also pokes fun at some politically active actors such as Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Matt Damon, etc etc and has them be part of the Film Actors Guild or F.A.G for short. It must be the first time a movie has ever featured a pornographic marionette sex scene. Most of the puppets are voiced by Matt Stone or Trey Parker. The real keeper of the movie is the soundtrack! Once again, Stone and Park delight with an original soundtrack that includes songs titled "America! F*CK YEAH!!, Pearl Harbor SUCKED!, Time for a MONTAGE!, I'm so Lonely (sang by the movie's bad guy Kin Jong Il)" and it even features a very good instrumental score as well. This movie truly is a send up to those Jerry Bruckheimer or Michael Bay action flicks. The sad thing is that ALMOST everything that happens in this movie really does happen in most action movies. I kid you not! One can't help wondering while watching this movie that if it were given a serious treatment, it would probably be a decent B-movie.
