Team America: World Police is a metaphor expressed as a parody. It shows a high sense of humor and the most rare of all senses, the sense of ridicule. There aren’t many people gifted with that. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, two of the best comic creators alive, are known by you from South Park. There’s another quirk with South Park. You like it or you hate it. I think that in between can sneak the guys who don’t get it (like the ones who don’t get Twitter, an army, actually).
This is humor, gross humor which is ridiculing what everybody hate when someone is really obnoxious. It is not a political credo, it is a satire of the modern world. It is a satire of how the world is manipulated and it is made with hilarity.
You remember one of the most ridiculed politicians in South Park was Al Gore with his aberrant programs which made him rich. I guess that a lot of people actually envy him for that and hide behind his “manbearpig” balloon. He fooled America and a whole world with his global warming danger. Geez, I have a friend who used to scam physicians by convincing them to buy “medical computers”, not simple computers, in the nineties, when all the big shots were so big and high of their own self importance that they forgot to judge. And words like “computer”, “PC”, “interface” were like abracadabra, pure magic. So, he went around in the newly private medical facilities and pitch a “redecoration” and an “upgrade” of the already existent technology. It was simple, because he replaced the computers and took commissions from the retailers, and re-arranged the furniture (sometimes replacing it), giving a note of “originality” in his activities of which he requested a nice fee.
So, terrorists in the Middle East, and Chechnya were managed by Kim Jong Il, the peace champion, with help from the great Actors Guild, leaded by the greatest actor alive, Arec Barldwin, who is indeed a great actor, but had some flaws in real life, hence the satire. Matt Damon, the guy who’s girlfriend found from TV that he left her, and Michael Moore who ridiculed Guantanamo Bay and the people there, the “terrorists” who lived better than the average American who couldn’t benefit from a decent medical insurance. Was he or was not in President’s Bush grace? This is someone who deserves a “medical computer”, Michael Moore, the Democrat.
Maybe they are all friends, which can be normal, they push the buck together, which is fine.
I laughed, and laughed, and you’ll laugh as well, especially when you discover that the jokes are innocent, like Tarantino’s “Inglorious Basterds” or the SNL clip below.
This is a ten in my book, and don’t tell me to compare it with The Shawshank Redemption, the number one in imdb Top 250 list, of best movies of all times. That wasn’t even in my top 150 own list. The link is sending you to a list I made.
Trey Parker is Gary Johnston, Joe, Kim Jong Il, Hans Blix, Carson, Matt Damon, Drunk in Bar, Tim Robbins, Sean Penn, Michael Moore, Helen Hunt, Susan Sarandon, and others. Matt Stone is Chris, George Clooney, Danny Glover, Ethan Hawke, and other additional voices. Kristen Miller is Lisa, Masasa Moyo is Sarah, Daran Norris is Spottswoode, Phil Hendrie is I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E. and Chechnyan Terrorist, and Maurice LaMarche is Alec Baldwin.
