Although a big fan of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut, I was completely oblivious of the fact that its creators had made a second animation film. Using puppets, Trey Parker and Matt Stone bash actors/activists, terrorism and police forces in Team America: World Police (2004).
Sexually active puppets
One may think little lifeless dolls being pulled by more than visible strings could never embody emotions. Well, these puppets can not only act but also sing and swear. Loaded with sexual intercourse between 22-inch marionettes, references to tons of movies, and unforgettable one-liners («Maybe feelings are feelings because you can’t control them»), Team America: World Police is a feast of laughter. To top if off, the movie offers an uproarious original soundtrack with titles such as Everyone has Aids, Montage or I am so Ronery.
Punch-pucking love songs
Years have gone by since this hilarious and irreverent film was first released. And to think I could have missed out on so much fun had I not trusted a friend’s recommendation… Well, better late than never; Team America: World Police is now one of my favourite comedies and Pearl Harbor Sucked the most romantic song ever. Don’t we all want somebody to need us as much as Ben Affleck needs acting school?
