Team America: World Police
Source: Catholic News Service
Intentionally outrageous adventure-comedy, with songs, by the "South Park" creators, featuring surprisingly lifelike marionettes (strings and all), about a governmental police team out to thwart global terrorists in Paris, the Mideast and Korea. A Broadway actor is drafted to help the squad take on the nefarious Korean dictator, Kim Jong II, who with the help of Chechen and Middle Eastern terrorists is planning to unleash weapons of mass destruction upon the world. Dexterous puppetry and eye-catching production design -- and yes, some humorous moments -- in Trey Parker's follow-up to "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," but puppets and humorous intent or not, the sexual content, overall vulgarity and frequent violence go way over the top. Sexual activity both straight and gay, extreme violence, including dismemberment and blood, ethnic stereotypes, crude and profane language, albeit all done by puppets. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
