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.

As puppetry, Team America is stilted. As satire, it's gutless and lazy. And as comedy, it barely delivers laughs.

It's rude and raunchy, and it has a message -- sort of. You have to wade through an awful lot of obscenity to get to it, though.

Like a cocky teenager who's had a couple of drinks before the party, [Parker and Stone] don't have a plan for who they want to offend, only an intention to be as offensive as possible.

The film is only intermittently funny and truly does raise a question of how often can one resort to the same foul words for laughs without becoming tiresome.
