roadster_guy and I went to see Team America on Friday night. It wasn’t a total disappointment, but it wasn’t nearly as funny as I’d been hearing from reviews and friends who have seen it. There were parts that were really funny, but a lot of the humor felt forced and shrill, as if they were trying too hard to be funny, and there was WAY too much vulgarity just for vulgarity’s sake. I love vulgar humor if it’s funny, but they poured it on as if the sheer volume of bad words was supposed to be funny in itself. Plus, even though the faces of the puppets were really well animated and technically they did a great job acting it out, marionettes are creepy, and watching an entire movie done with them is slightly disturbing.
