A good funny movie with lots of cameo appearances. If your easily offended then this is not the movie for you. If you are someone with a sense of humour then this will have you in tears.

If you loved Forest Gump and Ground Hog Day like I did, save your money and do not watch this.

This just wasn't funny.

Quite simply never laughed at any of the jokes.

Great Way to spend my night duty Dec 26 2008
By D. Caillouet - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Bought this dvd in our base PX on Xmas. I had watched this while doing night shift in the commo cell, and I couldn't stop cracking up. The homage to George Romero with Dennis Hopper (who played in Romero's "Land of the Dead") and General Patton fighting ACLU zombies was priceless. The performances of Robert Davi, Serdar Kalsin, and Geoffrey Arend as the terrorists, Aziz, Ahmed, and Mohammed were wonderfully rememnisant of the old World War II-era Three Stooges classics like "They Stooge To Conga" where the Stooges lampooned the Nazis just as Davi, Kalsin, and Arend lampoons the IslamoNazis. The University scene was all too true, especially with my experience in college dealing with faculty who were still stuck in the '60's. And finally, Trace Atkins' "Angel of Death" and the scene of Hollywood after the IslamoNazis take over was great. Aside from the comedy value, the scenes of alternate history that would have resulted if the advice of Micheal Moore and the liberals was followed, such as in the Civil war or World War II, can make one think.

Notable mentions is Kevin Farley's protrayal as Micheal Moore (Malone) as buffonish, arrogant, hardheaded, selfish, and inconsiderate were right on the mark given reports of Moore's arrogance in real life. Kelsey Grammer was great as General Patton and Jon Voight's protrayal of George Washington was really touching. Dennis Hopper was one good choice that made the George Romero homage scene work (Ken Forre would have been good too and Duane Jones would have been perfect but he's sadly deceased) and it was a good surprise to see regular tough-guy actor Robert Davi can do comedy as a modern day Moe. I don't expect liberals to like it as my dealings with them have shown me that they have no sense of humor whatsoever, but I highly recommend it. I think it would be best enjoyed with a showing of "Team America."

A Wishful and Funny Carol Nov. 13 2008
By legs diamond - Published on Amazon.com
The Amazon review above is an excellent example of why this movie wasn't reviewed by the critics who all tend to be very left leaning. Simply, it would have been grossly panned by them. I liked the movie very much. As a matter of fact, the audience in the theatre was laughing hysterically throughout most of the movie. I had tears in my eyes from laughing too hard! Yes, it had a couple of slow moments, as every movie does. It is both entertaining and refreshing compared to the liberal mantra thats usually presented. Seeing a movie that leans to the right, and sends a few zings to the left was a real pleasure. And, a funny movie too!

This is going to be a conservative classic Nov. 30 2008
By Kurt D. Diekelman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw the premire of this movie while attending the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis. If you are a right leaning person, you will love this movie. While it didn't do very well at the box office, I believe that the DVD sales for it will be very good. Every conservative should own a copy for two reasons: 1)We need to support movies like this so Hollywood wont be scared to make conservative movies, and 2)The movie slays so many liberal sacred cows. This is a very politically incorrect movie. I had a great time watching it and I look forward to the DVD release.

UPDATE: I purchased the DVD from a Best Buy on the release date and it was almost sold out by 2 P.M. Great!

Boo hoo hoo, people are picking on the left Dec 2 2008
By T. C. Wahlberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Finally we get a movie SATIRE that spoofs those sacred COWS like Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell (how'd that variety show work out there "funny girl"?).

The movie is what it is, a lampoon of mainly the looney left and it takes some shots at the right as well, but the intent was to peel the scab off of the phony elitist, we know what's best for you crowd.

Some out and out belly laughs and was enjoyable as all heck (must be politically correct) and you can watch it with your liberal and conservative friends as everyone with a brain stem should realize that it is SATIRE and nothing else.

If you want great cinema, go rent one of those long and boring 4 hour long movies that hollyweird loves so much, the ones with the great reviews and Oscar nods, that do nothing at the box office.

This did fairly well for the little publicity it got as many gutless networks wouldn't sell time to the indy distributor but they had nightly Obama hour long lovefests (see NBC, MSDNC, CBS, ABC, PBS), but that would make Hollyweird and their media friends the "typical" gutless crowd that we know they are.

Grab some popcorn and invite ALL your friends over from both sides and laugh a while, you are allowed too.

It's too bad there'll never be another like it. Jan. 3 2009
By Iron-Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Be warned there may be unintentional spoilers.

One thing I must mention before getting to the review is the amount of negative criticism aimed at this movie. It is probably the only movie supporting pro-American sentiments among the plethora of anti-American ones. And like pigs to the slaughter, liberals beat this thing down like like a whack-a-mole game. But when conservatives assert their views over liberally biased movies and news/television shows, we are considered ignorant, stupid, unintelligent, (apologies for redundancy). Thank you Zucker for this film, and it's too bad you decided against a sequel. It doesn't help that this movie was shown in an extremely small amount of theaters, thus assisting in its money shortage. Yet movies with liberal bias can't find enough theaters to infest. Now on with the review.

In short, I liked this movie. It was short, entertaining, and quick with the humor, both verbal and slapstick. Farley acts in comparison with his late brother, the only thing that may have made this better, would have been seeing David Spade by his side. I always hoped Kevin would gain a staring role. Maybe this will help him, maybe it will hurt him. This movie doesn't preach war mongering, but the idea of fighting is suggested as needed at the right times. This movie is a conservatively biased movie, yet they use John F. Kennedy, a Democratic President, as a Jacob Marleyesque character. Conservatives are not out to destroy the world, they simply accept that like a school yard bully, words are not always the answer, but they can be a good place to start.

Like "A Christmas Carol" Farly's character deals with three ghosts, Kelsey Grammers ghost being the one most seen. In the end, like in Dickins original, Farley sees the "error" (obviously depends on your political views)of his ways and changes, thus avoiding death and saving the lives of 20,000 people at Madison Square Garden after inadvertently assisting a terrorist earlier on and throughout the course of the film.

The overall plot is silly, and if you read too hard into it, you may have trouble enjoying it. But in my opinion this is a must see for conservatives, especially if you have had enough of the America bashing Hollywood scene.

P.S. College professors beware, there are insults aimed at you during the course of this movie.
