Team America: World Police
From the creators of "South Park", comes another offensive cartoon that'll mock just about everything that is good and decent in America while capitalizing on the "War on Terror." I wouldn't want it any other way. For those who are familiar with Trey Parker and Matt Stone's work, would know that this isn't even close to being as controversial as their hit TV animated series, "South Park." Therefore, it shouldn't come off as much of a shock at how much offensive humor these guys try to cram into this film. However, it was surprising that, two years earlier, "Collateral Damage" was criticized for capitalizing on the 9/11 tragedy because it was about terrorism even though it was made before that incident; yet "Team America: World Police" never received that kind of criticism for doing the same thing, but in a more comical way. I guess we're either a nation of morons that allows people to get away with anything as long as it's a cartoon, or it's because we're so used to the humor of Trey and Matt by now. I mean we're talking about two guys that would show several incidents mocking almost every religion known to man to showing two dolls having sex on screen. Either way, this film is still pretty damn funny. The film tells the story of a secret government organization that combats terrorism in the name of the good old U.S.A. However, they face their new nemesis, Kim Jong II, he tries to use the anti-war organization, F.A.G. (Federal Actors Guild), led by Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins, to prevent America from rallying behind Team America as they fight terrorism. This film was just too laughable at times. I especially loved the scene where there was a speech about Team America being dicks, F.A.G. being *****, and terrorists being asses. Or how about when Spotwood forced Gary to suck on his tool. Don't wrong, I'm not that way, but the way Trey and Matt set up that scene seemed very comical. My sides were just aching from watching this film. Basically, a fun film to watch, but it's not to be taken too seriously.
