ZMG's Review of Team America: World Police

There are two types of people in the world. Those who divide the world into two types of people and those who don't. Trey Parker and Matt Stone don't divide the world into two types of people they divide the world into three types: dicks, pussies and assholes.

Team America: World Police's underlying theme is that dicks fuck everyone, pussies hate dicks and assholes shit over everyone. That's about as deep as the movie gets and this movie uses every vulgar and bizarre method to express an over-simplified theme that only uses the analogies that work for their own message (not unlike Michael Moore). In the end this movie comes across as being as poignant as Andy Kaufman and as politically correct as Sam Kinison. The movie is about 50% funny, 45% retarded, and 5% insightful.

Another main theme is that people should not go to actors for political advice - they should go to bad voice actors instead. I never understood why people give actors such a hard time for giving their own opinions on politics. It seems that the people that buy supermarket tabloid trash don't mind the press hounding these actors day and night as long as they don't use that publicity to give out their own personal opinions of the world.

I was however shocked over the fact that neither John Kerry nor George W. Bush was mentioned in this film.

Highlights of the film include:
  1. A 4 minute dramatic barfing scene
  2. A puppet porn scene (It is only out of the most perverse curiosity that I want to see the unedited version of that)
Final Grade: Incomplete. Do over.

I look forward to seeing Kim Jong Il's reaction to Trey Parker and Matt Stone's film about as much as I'm sure George Bush Sr. will look forward to seeing Michael Moore blow up.
