Storyline

The North American counter-terrorism force Team America attacks a group of terrorists in Paris. Later, the leader of the organization, Spottswoode, invites the famous Broadway actor Gary Johnston to join his world police and work undercover in Cairo, infiltrating a terrorist organization in the hope they will disclose their plan of destroying the world. Team America destroy the cell of terrorists, but then the Panama Canal is attacked by the criminals as a payback. Gary feels responsible for the death of many innocents and leaves the counter-terrorism organization. When the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Il, joins a group of pacifist actors and actresses with the intention of using weapons of massive destruction, Team America tries to avoid the destruction of the world.

Fightin against the world stupidity
8 April 2005 | by docesfren-imdbSee all my reviews

Yesterday I watched this amusing movie, and besides laughing, it made me think. As European, I wanted to argue in favor of TA that I don't consider that this made in particular against any country, if not against the stupidity that we are tolerating in our lives: manipulation informative, false rumors tried as news and ill wills among people and countries that are a total fallacy. And the fight of Parker and Stone, and the rest of the film team is positive: to remove our asses of the armchair while we laugh and also realize us that this it is the same and dear world for all of us. I believe that it deserves to view it with a wide open mind.
