Eyes on the target, and wham

The Globe & Mail on Team America: World Police: While the movie leaves the illusion that it ridicules all sides equally, this is not the case. Just to recount the targets of ridicule here: anyone or anything that can be considered gay, and foreigners of any kind. By the conclusion, Hollywood liberals who criticize their government's foreign policy are gleefully decapitated, dismembered and demolished. Right-wing apologists, never mind George W. Bush and Donald Rumsfeld, are unscathed. Team America: World Police is too low-down and dirty to be endorsed by any political group, but there's little doubt where Parker and Stone's sympathies lie: The movie's just a little bit too America F--k Yeah! for comfort. I'm sorry, whiny Liberal establishment guy; are you trying to make me any more annoyed that I didn't have the time to see it on opening night?
