Our Score
South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have never been noted for their taste or restraint and here they admirably live up to their reputation for scatological high jinks. The film, performed by Thunderbirds-style marionettes, follows the team of the title as they battle terrorism across the world as well as tackling an enemy closer to home, the ultra-liberal Film Actors Guild (if you examine the acronym, you'll get an idea of the level of the film's humour). The running joke is that Team America invariably cause more damage battling terror than do the terrorists themselves, but there are also swipes at Broadway musicals (a rousing song-and-dance number is entitled "Everyone Has Aids"), action-movie clich├ęs and bleeding-heart Hollywood liberals (a Matt Damon puppet is so dim-witted that he can only say his own name). It's sporadically very funny and, of course, astonishingly offensive. Contains violence, swearing and puppet sex.

Summary

An American counter-terrorism unit travels around the world on the lookout for threats to global peace, causing much destruction to major world cities in the process. The biggest current menace is North Korean leader Kim Jong-il and an organisation much closer to home - the Film Actors Guild. Satirical puppet comedy, voiced by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
