Team America: World Police Reviews

October 22, 2004
Juvenile in the worst sense: confused and frightened by the adult world, and begging to be protected.

October 19, 2004
The first work from Parker and Stone that I'd describe as a failure of nerve.
October 19, 2004
I thought it was pretty clever.
October 19, 2004
Team America is at once grandiose and tacky, elaborate and deflationary.
October 15, 2004
Profane and sometimes bitingly funny.
October 15, 2004
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.

Funny string-driven action satire.

Parker-Stone fans are likely to have a grand time.

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

October 15, 2004
Outrageously, gut-bustingly hilarious.

October 15, 2004
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.

Sophomoric, vulgar, obscene and brilliant.

October 15, 2004
It may be one of the strangest pieces of entertainment to hit multiplexes in some time, but in terms of its politics, it's one of the sanest.
October 15, 2004
Consistently hilarious.

It may not tell you who you should vote for, but Team America: World Police conclusively proves everything is funnier when it's done by marionettes.

October 15, 2004
Entertaining as it is at the start, Team America ends up falling back on the kind of foul language that feels more forced than exuberant.

Though Team America has knee-slapping moments, too much mirth has too little on its mind.

A technical step forward from South Park.

Utterly vile, purposefully malicious and just stone brilliant a good deal of the time, Team America: World Police contains something to offend virtually everybody. Yes, even you.

Team America is a hoot, and a technical achievement.

October 15, 2004
There are laughs here, some resulting from sharp satirical observations and some from gross-out gags.

October 15, 2004
The South Park team's sendup of Hollywood action epics and the war on terror is at once admirably furious and sophomorically infuriating.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 15, 2004
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 15, 2004
A smart movie trapped in the body of a dead-end action flick.

October 14, 2004
Wickedly funny and devilishly subversive.
October 14, 2004
45 of the funniest minutes I've spent at the movies this year. Too bad this weapon of mass diversion runs more than twice that in length.

More satisfying as a straight-ahead blow 'em up than as a satire.

October 14, 2004
Profane, violent, and scabrously funny, this Team has something to offend all, from pious Hollywood liberals to knee-jerk nationalists.

Good try, some funny and clever ideas, but not really worth the time.

October 14, 2004
For its imagination, audacity and willingness to tick off absolutely everyone, Team America is the most memorable comedy you'll see this year -- at least among the ones starring puppets.

October 14, 2004
There's lots of tastelessly funny stuff here, but too much repetition.
October 14, 2004
There's a guilty, infantile fun to Team America.

The funniest thing at the movies since There's Something About Mary.

As a send-up of terrorism, Team America has more mild sizzle than bang. Its real target is the axis of ego, which knows no borders.

October 11, 2004
All told, the clever visual bits and hilarious songs don't entirely compensate for the many flat or beyond-over- the-top spells.
October 11, 2004
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.
