At a July 4 barbecue, gramps tells the kids the story of Michael Malone, a documentary filmmaker and Michael Moore look-alike who hates America and wants to abolish July 4th. He refuses to celebrate with his nephew Josh, who's shipping out soon to the Middle East. That night, Michel has a vision of his hero, JFK, who predicts that three ghosts will visit Michael. Sure enough, General Patton, George Washington, and country music star Trace Adkins visit Michael show him the fruits of patriotism, just wars, and pacifism. Meanwhile, Arab terrorists want Malone to help them with a propaganda film. Is he the next Leni Riefenstahl or will he see the light?Written by
When the two filmmaker-terrorists were trying to convince Michael Malone that Aziz was an actual terrorist, Michael had several flashbacks of Aziz acting suspiciously. One of the flashbacks was of Aziz dancing at a party with explosives around his waist. This scene was not in the released version! Michael "recalled" something that had not happened. (Or maybe, this being a Zucker film, it was a joke!) See more »

I had accidentally watched this film in Dubrovnik, Croatia in an open Jadran film theater. Film theater was nicer place then the film itself. Also, viewing audience did not really understood what is really in the film.
Conservatives lashing back at Michael Moore! Some of us understood that. Well, I think they have it right from their point of view. He worked tirelessly to take the White House away from the Republicans. and he finally did. It was not a miracle that someone would make a film trying to bash Michael.
Well, I think plot should be looked as a continuous struggle between the Republicans and Democrats for power in the USA.
Acting is OK, but nothing spectacular.
All in all, if you want to watch Republicans bashing at Democrats this is a film for you, otherwise, you might skip it, nothing special in it.
