Team America: World Police
2004
"South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone apply their acerbic wit to global crime-fighting in this musical satire about an all-marionette police force that takes on the challenging role of keeping peace on a troubled planet. Wherever there's a dictator itching to rule the world, Team America flies in to dismantle the government. The team's newest recruit is Gary Johnston, a Broadway star who just may have found his true calling.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Trey Parker and Matt Stone's crime is that they're in it to amuse themselves first and the audience second. If, and only if, you happen to find the same things hilarious as they do, such as cheesy self-serious Jerry Bruckheimer movies, you're going to enjoy a send-up like this one. It's cheerfully, tirelessly obscene as it tears apart the empty values our nation seems to hold dear these days, and often note-perfect in its satire. I regret the studio meddling that forced the boys to deliver it early and unfinished, since there are some jokeless passages in the middle that could have used more attention, but what we got in the end was still a treat.
