A group of assorted Americans survive a plane crash in a Caribbean island, and discover it is infested with crawling snakes and other venomous beasts. Even worse, terrorists are preparing a full out war on America with a biological weapon.
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.
Alfred Packer was a mountain guide and sole survivor of a party of pioneers that got lost in the mountains in winter. Accused and convicted of murdering and eating his travelling companions, he was to be executed by hanging.The movie begins at his trial, where he pleads his innocence to an unsympathetic audience. Only reporter Polly Pry will listen to his story, which is then related to the viewers in the form of flashbacks. As Packer and his gold-prospecting clients make their way through the forests and mountains, they encounter bemused Japanese Indians, an unimpressed group of mountain men and the brutal Rocky Mountain winter, all of which inspire the travellers to break out into song and dance.Written by

"Shpadoinkle" was not originally intended to be in the finished film. While writing the music, Trey Parker just wrote it as a filler word until he could think of something better for the song, but his friends all agreed that the word needed to stay. See more »
Right before Packer and the others meet the trappers for the first time, you can clearly see that Leanne is tied up. She is also clearly tied up during the "That's All I'm Asking For!" song. Right after she ran away, Noon asks Packer if she was tied up and Packer replies that he never ties her up. See more »
The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", it's short lived theater run was canceled, and "Alfred Packer: The Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, re-discovered just last year, has been painstakingly restored using state-of-the-art color enhancing and computer reconstruction technology. The film's violent scenes have been edited out for your viewing pleasure.

(At the end of the closing credits) Due to the graphic nature of this film, it should not have been watched by small children. See more »
"My father was an elephant, but that's irrelevant..."
This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Maybe I was just in the right mood to watch it, but I found it's casual randomness and altogether ridiculous feel to be more than funny. I do agree that the sets were cheesy, as well as the effects. But it was truly the Shpdoinkle movie of the year. More than once did I burst out with hysterical laughter. I would deem it better than basketball and Orgasmo, and equally the hilarity of Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Love this movie. "That's all I'm asking for!"
Needless to say, after watching it and writing this comment, I am going to go build a snowman...
