AMERICA… Fuck…Yeah?

In 2004, Creators of Comedy Central’s supremely popular construction paper animation sensation “South Park,” Trey Parker and Matt Stone join with writer Pam Brady to bedazzle audiences with an epic satirical action comedy film and masterpiece of modern puppetry, “Team America: World Police.” In this Live-Action puppet extravaganza, top-notch boadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited to join the hyper elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. With a rapidly decaying world crumbling around him, Gary must gain the team’s trust, battle with terrorists (who are looking to cast a “Jihad on you.”), diffuse a hostile collection of mercenary celebrities, and find true love all at once. If you haven’t seen “Team America,” then you likely have not seen the greatest testament to muppet/puppet cinema every created. The nuanced detail of the puppets coupled with the acerbic comedic wit of Parker and Stone makes for an unforgettable movie experience. The dirty-minded duo is able to bring life to the complex marionettes, leaving audiences immersed in the “Team America” world just like any other live-action reality. From “Kim Jong Il” doing a rendition of West Side Story’s “I Feel Pretty,” to Gary’s pubic hair-laden undercover identity, to puppets having sex (What?! It’s in the movie… sheesh), “Team America: World Police” has the right mix of reality and absurdity to take the #1 spot in the Top 5 Movies with Muppets or Puppets countdown.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
