From the team that makes South Park, “Team America: world police” is fantastic, very funny, parody using puppets on strings (a sort of (adult!) modern day “Thunderbirds”). It takes aim at, amongst other things, America as the “ policeman” of the world, how Americans portray themselves in their films and also liberal Hollywood.
It tells the story of “Team America” an antiterrorism force, who recruit an actor “Gary”, to use his “acting skills” to infiltrate a terrorist group, who are part of a global plot by (then) North Korean leader Kim Jong-il (and this was made in about 2003, I think.....how things change, eh?)
You get some fantastic set pieces, silly songs and puppet sex! Look out for Gary’s “secret signal” and Hans Blix eaten by sharks. Oh and “Matt Damon”
Yes, it’s very silly, but very funny too.
