Equal Opportunity Ridicule

We finally got around to watching "Team America, World Police" last night. "South Park" takes no prisoners, and, in "Team America," Matt Stone and Trey Parker go after jingoistic hyper-patriotism and celebrity would-be politicians with equal savagery. They also do a fantastic spoof of "Top Gun"-type movies, and a send-up of those "everybody has AIDS" magazine ads. Matt and Trey have no sacred cows, so beware. If you're offended by puking puppets, potty-mouths, or marionettes having crazy sex, it's not the film for you. Very, very funny.

My favorite part of the movie was the speech at the end.

Alec Baldwin: Well the truth is that Team America fights for the billion-dollar corporations. They are just as bad as the enemies they fight

Gary: Oh no we aren't! We're dicks! e're reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks! And the Film Actors' Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong IL is an asshole. Pussies don't like dicks because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes. Assholes who just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way, but the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick with some balls. The problem with dicks is that sometimes they fuck too much, or fuck when it isn't appropriate and it takes a pussy to show 'em that. But sometimes pussies get so full of shit that they become assholes themselves because pussies are only an inch and a half away from assholes. I don't know much in this crazy, crazy world, but I do know that if you don't let us fuck this asshole, we are gonna have our dicks and our pussies all covered in shit.

My favorite thing was the Team America theme song--"America--FUCK YEAH!" I laughed hard every time that came on. Trey is a brilliant lyricist.
