Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 10/15/2004
"Of course Mr. Parker and Mr. Stone are joking -- what else is new' -- but like most good jokers, they also mean exactly what they say."
USA Today - 10/15/2004
"[A] gleeful, politically incorrect melange of mischief and mockery..."
Rolling Stone - 11/11/2004
"[O]utrageously, gut-bustingly hilarious....It's also a ruthlessly clever musical..."
Sight and Sound - 01/01/2005
"[A]s a comedy, TEAM AMERICA is at its funniest when it plays things straight, mimicking the cheesy dialogue and corny, cliché-ridden plot mechanics of the action genre."
Uncut - 02/01/2005
"[Stone and Parker are] indisputably the funniest film-makers currently working in the world today."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
Ranked #9 in Uncut's Best Films Of 2005 -- "Extravagantly tasteless....Sending up everything from liberal Hollywood to America's war on terror and 1980s high-concept action movies."

Product Description:

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the masterminds behind SOUTH PARK, turn their attention to marionettes and politics in the riotous spoof TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE. Combining the puppetry of the mid-1960s series THUNDERBIRDS with action/disaster flicks produced by Jerry Bruckheimer (TOP GUN, ARMAGEDDON, PEARL HARBOR), Parker and Stone tell the story of a small group of heroic figures who span the globe protecting democracy and freedom against terrorism. Along the way, they destroy such famous international landmarks as the Eiffel Tower in Paris, the Sphinx in Egypt, and the Panama Canal. All the while they are developing close relationships that lead to love, jealousy, and betrayal. Their primary mission is to stop North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's peace conference, which is a ruse to allow him to attack the rest of the world with his weapons of mass destruction. Team America must also take on F.A.G., the Film Actors Guild, which is supporting the peace conference, including such participants as Alec Baldwin, Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Sean Penn, George Clooney, and other actors who have spoken out against the war in Iraq (but did not agree to be spoofed in the film). Parker and Stone reserve a special message for FAHRENHEIT 9/11 director Michael Moore, and even former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix shows up. Among the very funny--and very dirty--songs in the film are "Everyone Has AIDS" (from the Broadway musical LEASE), "Only a Woman" (about homosexuality), and "I'm So Ronery" (Kim Jong Il's soaring solo). Despite having no actual humans in it, the movie earns its R rating with lots of blood, very adult language, and a steamy puppet sex scene.
