During the scene where the team is fighting the Koreans, after Lisa says, "We lost I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. I repeat, we have no I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E", you can see the reflection of a face in the front window of Joe's helicopter during its head on shot. See more »

Satarical, crude, and vulgar...this film is NOT to be missed.
Who would've thought that puppets swearing, having sex and killing people for two hours could be so hilarious. More to the point, who would've thought it would end up being as sharp, intelligent and socially relevant as it is...absolute genius.
Everyone gets ripped to shreds in this little gem of a film, no-one is spared...not even Matt Damon.
So if you're expecting a anti-Bush, anti-republican type of film,(a la Fahrenheit 9/11) then you're sadly mistaken. This film is a scathing attack of absolutely every aspect of the 'War on Terror', even the conscientious celebrities, and the ranting hot-dog munching Michael Moore.
not only do these guys manage to insult everyone, they even manage to throw in some parodies of other films- the action sequence in France at the start is the FUNNIEST thing I've seen this year, and the 'American' attack on Terror, in the style of so many Hollywood big budget Action films, actually had me crying with laugher.
Anyone who watches this film will totally GET the jokes-(apart from Bush maybe?)and if you're a south park fan already you will NOT be disappointed. The bit with 'lease' the musical...i rewound that bit about 5 times. So wrong, and yet so funny.
Bet the makers of 'Thunderbirds' are really p*ssed off.
