Back to Team America


The Village Voice seeks to reassure its readers that Team America: World Police, the boffo all-puppet movie of the year, really does make fun of "Middle American slope-headedness" more than limousine liberalism. The wrap-up:

Because the movie doesn't trust the average American citizen, it's a sharper election year prod than The Manchurian Candidate. Parker and Stone aren't the first satirists to underestimate their own aggression or be accused of selling what they're telling us not to buy.

Whole thing here.

Reason's Brian Doherty gave a thumbs up to the first mass-market puppet sex show since Kukla, Fran & Ollie went off the air here.
