Team America: World Police

MPAA Rating: R

Entertainment: +2

Content: -4

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of Southpark: Bigger, Longer and Uncut, now bring this action comedy - a ruthless satire of action movies, current world politics, conservatives, liberals, Hollywoods liberal celebrities and homosexuals - with wooden marionettes as actors. An imminent threat of terrorism upon countries of the world beckons Team America to rise to the occasion once again and save the world from destruction. As they seek out the culprits, they shockingly realize that their target was the wrong one. The error allows the sadistic criminals to move closer to their plan of worldwide destruction, leaving Team America with little time to bring the terrorists plans to a halt. With their reputation as Americas heroes and the existence of mankind at stake, they team together to conquer their enemies and to reestablish peace. Voices by Trey Parker, Matt Stone, Elle Russ and Stanley Sawicki.

Team Americas theme song is America: F--k Yeah! While it may unfortunately draw big crowds, this film is entirely absent of wholesome content. There is an extremely foul and repulsive sex scene between two of the puppet figures. An intense scene of unconventional sex between homosexuals is verbally expressed and clearly implied although it is without nudity. The degree and quantity of sexual vulgarity is unbearable. It is loaded with more than 200 occurrences of obscene and crude language, and many uses of profanity. The violence throughout is unnecessarily gory. This film initially received an NC-17 rating and was lowered to R after a sex scene was toned down. People should clearly avoid this one for the explicit sex, crude humor, violence and excessive bad language. You dont have to look in a trashcan to know theres garbage in it.
