| Funny parody. A Hollywood movie that mocks liberals! Where conservatives change thought, overall an anti- M. Moore bashing!
Everyone who follows the social leaning of the Hollywood film world knows that mostly it glows to liberals and it paints a dark picture of the right and conservatives. Well finally a few Hollywood movie star conservatives got together with spoof and parody king man director David Zucker to showcase their side of thought and viewpoints by finally making fun of the left and the liberals. Most of all it's main target is filmmaker Michael Moore as he's portrayed as evil and it shows he will do anything to make a film even if it means being put fourth money wise by the Taliban! Told thru a holiday tale style of a carol by the legendary and traditional Leslie Nielsen he at a fourth of July party tells the story of how bad liberals are for our country from everything starting with national security to social causes. And the film has very funny parodies starting with the take it shows of Michael Moore as a downright slob and so anti-American. The cameo from conservative stars and pundits are good from Kelsey Grammar as General Patton who tries to be a ghost guide to the Moore character to prove that this country is worth fighting for. And Dennis Hopper is just fine as a judge taking on the ACLU in a courtroom spoof. And Mr. big himself Bill O' Reilly gives the tough questions to liberals and country music star Trace Adkins rounds it out well as Moore's angel of death to try and make him a believer in the values of the right and to fight for freedom. Overall no matter what side your on it's a funny parody and feel good movie though it seems odd seeing the liberal side mocked it was nice to see the conservatives showcase their side of being funny by using spoof and parody!
