Team America: World Police

October 16, 2004 - reviews

This one wasn’t as good as I was hoping it would be — your average episode of South Park has more biting satire. As expected, the music was hilarious (especially the Montage song), though probably not Oscar-caliber — although I didn’t believe “Blame Canada” was Oscar-caliber either, so who knows. The marionette work and the “special effects” were certainly intriguing, and it is obvious that an awful lot of work went into making this film, but in the end I found myself wishing that they had spent more time following their penchant for subtle intellectual humor, and less time on the crude locker-room humor. Note to Parker & Stone: curse words are a seasoning, and too much salt spoils the soup. I’ll rank this one behind Baseketball, South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut, and Cannibal: The Musical. It had its moments, but it just wasn’t up to par.

One thought on “Team America: World Police


I have to give the movie points for roasting Matt Damon and Bennifer.Initally, I was shocked and awed by the marionettes’s actions and language. Naughty marionettes! The irreverent satire in this movie is spot on the mark. Sean Penn’s remarks against viewing this movie give credence to the biting wit of the script.
