‘Team America’ Deserves Better

'Team America' Deserves Better

Why didn’t more of you go see Team America this weekend? While it’s not as funny as South Park: Bigger, Longer, Uncut and it has some second-act problems, it’s probably one of the funniest movies of the year. But it only wound up earning $12 million for a third place debut on the box office charts (behind Shark Tale and Friday Night Lights).

Maybe once word-of-mouth spreads that it’s not “just a puppet movie,” and that it actually pays off as a biting comedy, things will turn up for the film. But, really, if you like your political satire and don’t mind being offended, you should see the movie ASAP.
