Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
Wayne is still living at home. He has a world class collection of name tags from jobs he's tried, but he does have his own public access TV show. A local station decides to hire him and his sidekick, Garth, to do their show professionally and Wayne & Garth find that it is no longer the same. Wayne falls for a bass guitarist and uses his and Garth's Video contacts to help her career along, knowing that Ben Oliver, the sleazy advertising guy who is ruining their show will probably take her away from him if they fail.Written by

In the early '70s, some British music shops banned or fined patrons for playing Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" because it was played so often. Hence the sign: "No 'Stairway to Heaven'" when Wayne plays the guitar in the store. See more »
The show Benjamin watches at the beginning of the movie and the tape (of the same episode) that he shows Van Der Hoff, are different. The second time it is seen, Wayne pauses and stutters on words he didn't the first time. See more »

It's really good seeing you, Benjamin. You haven't been into Shakey's for so long.
Well, I've been real busy.

In the broadcast version, many of the "inappropriate" parts are changed or cut. Some of the more interesting line changes are (see Quotes section for original lines): Wayne: Who's playing today? Tiny: Jolly Green Giants, Stinky Beetles. Wayne: Stinky Beetles? Are they any good? Tiny: They stink! Wayne: I lost my show, I lost my best friend I lost my girl! I'm being dumped on, that's all, dumped on... Garth: Benjamin is no one's friend. If he were an ice cream flavor, he'd be Jamocha Almond Idiot. See more »
Terribly sorry for the silly Summary, but I couldn't help it.
First of all, I have no idea why I enjoyed this movie at all. The jokes were weak, and there was too less funny stuff. But I think that the reason is one main thing: MIKE MYERS!!!! I mean, it is the exact same feeling with the AUSTIN POWERS-flicks. Nothing that's that extremely funny, but something that get's hilarius, even though it is very corny and silly.
I don't know what it is he does. Even though the extreme difference from the AP-movies, in storyline, the movies has a lot in common. First of all, there is a lot of silly jokes, hilarious spoofs, cool quotes that you never forget, a meathead as a leading character, a remarkably so what-lovestory, and, of course, Rob Lowe.
Do I have to say I dig this movie?
