Team America: World Police

Kim Jong IlKim Jong Il

Kim Jong Il has been in the news of late, what with choosing his successor and the nuclear tests North Korea has been conducting.

Unfortunately, as troubling and serious as these developments are; it brought to mind one of my favorite movies Team America: World Police.

If you need to have a laugh, what better than a team of puppets trying to save the world? They accidentally destroy Paris while shooting at terrorists and Kim Jong Il sings a touching tune called “Lonely.” One of my favorite scenes has Kim walking past his collection of Hummels.

It is wicked satire to be enjoyed by the 12 year old that still exists in all of us.
