Dir. Trey Parker (2004).
More audacious than any Pixar opus, this mock Bruckheimer action spectacle features a ridiculous cast of puppets fighting, dancing, and having sex. Unfortunately, the marionettes show more guts than the filmmakers. Far from for satirizing the war on terror, Team America promotes its own fear factor. Bellicose Bushies may resent being praised as stupid “dicks” in a dirty-mouthed animation, but this is the perfect date flick for a drunken frat boy trying to impress right-wing skank like Ann Coulter.
