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.

HASH(0xa6ca5bf4) out of 5 stars 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."

HASH(0xa6ca5c48) out of 5 stars 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!

HASH(0xa7762018) out of 5 stars 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!

HASH(0xa776245c) out of 5 stars A fun poke at the Left Oct. 18 2012
By David W. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Okay, so this is not the greatest movie ever made. It did not win an Academy Award. It is not in the IMDB Top 250 (receiving a mere 4.3 rating out of 10). Rotten Tomatoes gives it an abysmal 11%. Most critics did not think it funny. Maybe I'm the only guy on the planet, but I found American Carol to be hilarious.

Part of my willingness to forgive the lower-than-par production value was my sense of delight at finding someone who understands how we feel--those of us who are part of the Judeo-Christian heritage of this country. We are increasingly marginalized by the liberal media, treated as stereotypical hypocrites by Hollywood, and snubbed in the halls of higher learning. The fact that it came from David Zucker of Airplane fame rather than a fellow Christian makes it all the more gratifying.

The basic premise of the film is that a documentary filmmaker named Michael Malone (an obvious parody of Michael Moore) is seeking to ban the Fourth of July, while Islamic terrorists are trying to blow up Madison Square Garden. Malone has a Dickensesque experience and is visited by three ghosts of America past--Patton, Washington and the Angel of Death. Along the way, Zucker irrevererntly pokes fun at Islamofascism, the liberal media, liberal higher education, the ACLU and, most of all, Michael Moore (played by Kevin Farley). Cameos by Leslie Nielsen, Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, James Woods, Dennis Hopper, Bill O'Reilly, and country singer Trace Adkins as the Angel of Death add to the fun.

Video and audio quality: the blu-ray transfer is fine, although this is not the kind of movie where it matters much. If you already have the DVD, it is probably not worth upgrading.

Parental warning: While there is no sex or nudity, there are a couple of scenes that border on risque. Another scene features zombies. Some mild profanity.

Is this a great movie? No. Is it worth watching? Yes, particularly if you would identify yourself as a conservative. You should have some laugh-out-loud moments.

HASH(0xa7762408) out of 5 stars Two thumbs up! Jan. 28 2013
By The Reviewer Formerly Known as Kurt Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Michael Malone (a thinly veiled parody of Michael Moore!) is anti-war and anti-US, and he has set his sites on ending the celebration of the Fourth of July! But, some friendly spirits are out to teach him a thing or two about what it truly means to be anti-war. Led by the spirit of General George S. Patton (played by Kelsey Grammer), the spirits are going to take Malone on a rollercoaster of a ride through the past and the present. But, in the real world, Malone is being used as a dupe by terrorists who want to strike a devastating blow at the US. Will Malone wake up and smell the coffee before it is too late?

This 2008 film has all of the normal ingredients of a David Zucker film - slapstick, swearing, goofy humor, pratfalls, silly characters, and (of course) Leslie Nielson. But, to spice up the movie, it's full of excellent actors, including Kelsey Grammer, Dennis Hopper (in one of his last movie appearances), Trace Adkins, Gary Coleman and Jillian Murray, with Jon Voight bringing in a scene-stealing appearance as George Washington.

Yeah, this is a movie shot with a definite Conservative slant to it. If you are a Liberal, you will no doubt find the movie to be nothing short of infuriating. But, if you are a Conservative, you will enjoy seeing the Liberal sacred cows being gored left and right (OK, right anyway), and Liberal shibboleths being held up to piercing ridicule.

Yep, I'll admit it, I am a Conservative, and I found this movie to be hilariously funny. My son and I watched it through yet again, laughing out loud over and over again. We both enjoyed this movie and both give it a big thumbs up!
