One of the upsides of being struck with fever is finally having the time to view some slightly less than legal DVD's containing films which haven't yet been released in Europe. (Am more than willing to pay - just not to wait four frigging months.)
Definitely the best thing about Team America are some of the songs. 'Freedom isn't free' is a country song which is ever so slightly over the top, and constantly made me reminisce of Darryl Worley. Can't say it's satire of Shostakovich quality, but it's more than adequate for movie music. And so is 'America Fuck Yeah!', which manages to take the piss at excess patriotism without becoming overtly cynical at the same time. (I liked the slavery line.)
Oh, and I never really liked Alec Baldwin, but any remaining positive feelings towards him have been completely dealt with after seeing this flick.
(The Team America March is going to be my ringtone for the next month or so. David Arnold meets Sousa. Just to piss off liberals.)
