This week, Jesse and Ben talk about Team America: World Police (2004)!
Team America: World Police is a 2004 American-German satirical action comedy filmstarring puppets produced by Scott Rudin, Matt Stone, and Trey Parker, written by Parker, Stone and Pam Brady and directed by Parker, all of whom are also known for the popular animated television series South Park. The film stars Parker, Stone, Kristen Miller, Masasa Moyo, Daran Norris, Phil Hendrie, Maurice LaMarche, Chelsea Marguerite, Jeremy Shada, and Fred Tatasciore, and is a satire of big-budget action films and their associated clichés and stereotypes, with particular humorous emphasis on the global implications of the politics of the United States. The title is derived from domestic and international political criticisms that the foreign policy of the United States frequently and unilaterally tries to “police the world”. Featuring a cast composed of supermarionettes, Team America focuses on a fictional team of political paramilitary policemen known as “Team America: World Police”, who attempt to save the world from a violent terrorist plot led by Kim Jong-il.
