Product Description

In this comedy send up of brainless action movies, wooden puppets take the place of live actors. The plot revolves around a typical action hero who is drafted to help a team of heroes known as Team America, as they attempt to thwart the world's evil forces.

From Amazon.co.uk

An elite U.S. counter-terrorism squad loses a member while decimating half of Paris in the reckless pursuit of Middle Eastern maniacs; a Broadway actor with a traumatic childhood secret is naturally hired to replace him. Oh--and they're all marionettes. South Park maestros Trey Parker and Matt Stone (along with co-writer Pam Brady) came up with this shameless satire of pea-brained Hollywood action flicks and even smaller-minded global politics, so don't expect subtlety or even a hint of good taste. Team America is soon on the trail of North Korea's evil Kim Jong Il, who treats us to a tender song about his loneliness before ensnaring Alec Baldwin and the rest of the oblivious Film Actors Guild (F.A.G. for short) in a plot to blow up every major city on the planet. Just as the mindless squad cheerfully demolishes everything in sight, so do director Parker and company. Throwing punches left, right and in-between, the movie's politics leave no turn un-stoned; there's even time to bludgeon the musical Rent. It's offensive, irresponsible comic anarchy seemingly made by sniggering little boys. Painfully funny sniggering little boys. --Steve Wiecking, Amazon.com

I find it astonishing that anyone could watch this film without finding something to love. It is utterly hilarious, and I agree it is juvenile in parts, but then anyone who goes to watch something by Parker and Stone without expecting a certain amount of puerility should clearly not be allowed out by themselves, and furthermore, anyone who is so uptight not to smirk occasionally at stupidity should probably stick to watching Star Wars and other emotionally overblown pap fests, since humour is not their thing. For the rest of us, it is not only hilarious but also well-crafted and perfectly-aimed. There is a place for subtle satire and this film isn't it, but then the issues it deals with are not subtle either. It is impossible to rip apart America's stance on world peace without displaying them as brash caracitures since Bush and his cronies have become exactly that. It does not pull any punches, and, like South Park, is not bothered who it attacks, since it recognises that nothing on earth is completely immune to mockery, particularly politics, celebrities and Thunderbirds. So watch it and enjoy it (unless you are uptight, in which case go and hire 'Kez' and enjoy that instead). Oh, and for the record, it is all about America policing the world. That's the joke, for those of you who may miss it.

I admit the humor in this fantastic comedy made by the creators of South park this is not very adult ,but is extremely funny ,made with puppets to a very high standard ,the movie pokes fun at American war on terror and radical Islam.

The plot follows a group of American secret agents trying to fight terror and killing everyone on their path ,they have to face many dangers including Alec Baldwin and Michael Moore.

The best character is Kim Jong Il ,one of the best satires ever made of a living politician and I found it impossible not to laugh every time he come on screen

This comedy is not for everyone and some viewers might be easily offended such as American patriots, terrorists, people with gender issues or North Korean dictators.

The DVD has 2 hours of extras including some more Kim Jong Il fun.

I advise you to BUY this movie and laugh to your heart content.

"Team America" plays like Trey Parker and Matt Stone broke into Gerry Anderson's house while he was away, got totally loaded, and made a movie.
Like South Park, "Team America" rips into anybody and everybody - gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, Arab, American, French, Korean, treehugger or warmonger - no matter what kind of person you are there's guaranteed to be at least one scene in this film which will make you SQUIRM.
The primary target of the film is, as the title suggests, the macho gung-ho cowboy way America carries out its "war on terror", i.e. throwing military hardware around wherever they like, generally flattening population centres while wearing cheesy grins, all in pursuit of a handful of terrorists.
That said, the film is equally keen to rip into liberals with just as much venom - causing some to wonder whether it's a pro-Bush propoganda vehicle (!) - but the truth is that it's offensive to everybody, and fair play to it. Those same people probably think the Cartman character from South Park was proof that the South Park creators are neo-Nazis! Oh dear... It's called "satire" - and this might be some seriously scatological satire, but it's satire nonetheless!
It's been called the most offensive puppet movie ever made (although I wonder whether the people saying that have seen Peter Jackson's "Meet the Feebles"!) but, as undeniably foul as it is, sadly this DVD isn't quite as offensive as the filmmakers intended... The version of "Team America" available in the UK is the R-rated version that played in American cinemas and which was cut by about a minute, mostly in that infamous sex scene. Happily, there's an "uncut and unrated" version available on R1 DVD for those who want to see all boundaries of taste and decency well and truly violated!

I'm afraid if you dont laugh hugely at this movie then there is no hope for you. It rips right into the Hollywood blockbuster mentality and delivers a hilariously funny film which very rarely misses its targets - unlike the members of Team America! There's more than enough here for anyone with even a hint of a sense of humour, as well as a desire to see the major monuments and tourist attractions of the world blown to bits. What made the movie even funnier for me was the songs (what? you say!) - yep, the songs were absolutely fantastic parodies and even the stoniest hearts amongst you will feel a wee bit of sadness during Kim Jong Ils rendition of "I'm so ronery". As for the look of the film - think Thunderbirds with swearing and much better explosions and effects and you've just about got it - the guys involved in making this obviously went all out to make it look and sound great, and the DVD features which delve into the 'making of' side illustrate the time and effort the crew put into the look and effects of the film. And of course they made the puppets have sex!! My advice - get it, grab some beers and popcorn and laugh yourself stupid. Remember, sometimes believing is all we have.
