Team America: World Police

At the recommendation of a few people at work, I Netflixed Team America: World Police. From the makers of South Park, the movie is a satire of the Jerry Bruckheimer disaster movies, but with an all puppet cast. It is also inspired by the old Thunderbirds television show from the 60’s. Team America is a global police force bent on stopping global terrorism at any cost. They uncover a plot by Kim Jong-Il to unleash a 9-11 type plot, but times a thousand, and their attempt to stop them is hampered by members of the Film Actors Guild. The movie tries to play a lot of the plot overly seriously like a Jerry Bruckheimer movie, which is hilarious. There’s a lot of puppet violence and that’s probably what makes it so funny.
