An elite U.S. counter-terrorism squad loses a member while decimating half of Paris in the reckless pursuit of Middle Eastern maniacs; a Broadway actor with a traumatic childhood secret is naturally hired to replace him. Oh--and they're all marionettes.South Parkmaestros Trey Parker and Matt Stone (along with co-writer Pam Brady) came up with this shameless satire of pea-brained Hollywood action flicks and even smaller-minded global politics, so don't expect subtlety or even a hint of good taste.Team Americais soon on the trail of North Korea's evil Kim Jong Il, who treats us to a tender song about his loneliness before ensnaring Alec Baldwin and the rest of the oblivious Film Actors Guild (F.A.G. for short) in a plot to blow up every major city on the planet.

"Team America: World Police" is funny. It's not quite as funny as Matt Stone and Trey Parker's "South Park," but it definitely takes some wonderful shots at worldwide politics, the French, and the countless, mindless idiots from Hollywood who think that everyone should think their way.    The premise is simple, Team America travels the world stopping evil, whether it be Bin Laden or, as in this flick, Kim Jong Il. They do so by literally blowing up everything in their path. As …
