Brits unite and fight!!
7 January 2000 | by manumission30See all my reviews

I'm not going to comment on this movie until I've made the sequel. It's called 'Mary Hates America'. It goes like this: Mary moves back to New York and in year 2000 realises that she is living in a nation of gun-packing, drug addict, badly educated morons who do nothing but watch TV and shoot each other all day. Sick of hanging around with badly dressed overweight rednecks, racists, geeks and people who think 'awesome' is a considered reply, she moves back to London,and gets a great job in the fashion industry. Michael, Jack and Peter come back to England to rescue her again, but are beaten to death by British Immigration at Heathrow for asking where they can rent a Mini at the airport. The film ends with the entire eastern Seabord of the United States being nuked by Royal Navy trident submarines for no particular reason, other than it being funny.

I think that would just about redress the stereotype balance between the two countries as established by Three Men and a little Lady.

Have a nice day.
