Team America - World Police
Directed by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, Team America: World Police is a tongue-in-cheek but nonetheless politically biting send-up of the CGI-laden, big-budget action movies that have taken an almost exclusive hold over mainstream box offices, particularly during the summer months.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Juvenile in the worst sense: confused and frightened by the adult world, and begging to be protected."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Team America is at once grandiose and tacky, elaborate and deflationary."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"The jarhead action, intentionally crappy parody songs, mélange of terrorist gibberish and semi-sensible anatomical analogies for foreign policy all let "Team America" rowdily resurrect the Zucker Brothers' spirit of peerless, puerile genre satire."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"When it's not beating us over the head with "clever political satire", it can be a fun film."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"...hurt by Parker and Stone's reliance on speechifying and heavy-handed diatribes..."

‑ Cole Smithey,
"Bottom line: nice puppetry, crappy movie."
‑ Oz,
"I thought it was pretty clever."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Team America is not as funny as the South Park movie, and some of its juvenile humor falls flat. But when Team America works, it falls squarely into the category of guilty pleasure."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"Putting the fun back into misanthrope"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"As usual, heart and soul have been poured into an enterprise that Parker and Stone want you to think they just knocked off after a night of smoking weed."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"So what if the political satire is as thin as wax paper?...In the end, the gleeful action, absurd silliness and crude pleasures outweigh the film's weaknesses."
‑ Uri Lessing,
