Using 9/11 and its aftermath, in fact, is pretty risky business for these sophomoric South Park guys.

Using the "F" word fifty million times is not brilliant script writing

Many other critics have praised it, but I find it hard to enjoy a film so offensive. Be sure to keep kids away.

Despite the film's originality, I grew tired of looking at all those puppets after about 15 minutes, which is how I usually I feel when watching any wooden actors.

The gags fall flat as often as they hit their mark.
October 15, 2004
As puppetry, Team America is stilted. As satire, it's gutless and lazy. And as comedy, it barely delivers laughs.
October 15, 2004
The irreverent duo plays it surprisingly safe here.
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.
October 15, 2004
There is something in Team America: World Police to offend anyone, which is a good thing, but there's not quite enough to please everyone, which has to be reckoned a letdown.
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.
October 15, 2004
Though Team America has knee-slapping moments, too much mirth has too little on its mind.
October 15, 2004
The film is extremely hit-and-miss.
October 15, 2004
It doesn't stand for anything beyond the ability to stand there and mock everything.
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.
October 15, 2004
These filmmakers do know what's funny, but they don't know when it stops being funny.
October 15, 2004
A smart movie trapped in the body of a dead-end action flick.
October 14, 2004
If you're not a fan of naughtiness for naughtiness's sake, Team America is this week's must-miss movie.
October 14, 2004
Good try, some funny and clever ideas, but not really worth the time.
October 14, 2004
There's lots of tastelessly funny stuff here, but too much repetition.
October 14, 2004
When Team America runs out of ideas, Parker and Stone turn into a couple of obnoxious kids running around in circles giving the finger to everyone they see.
