Bob Mondello Review: 'Team America: World Police'

The creators of South Park have something new to insult the sensibilities of just about everyone — an R-rated satire of big-budget action movies, the politics of Hollywood, Michael Moore, jingoistic patriotism and racial profiling gone awry. NPR's Bob Mondello says Team America: World Police, populated entirely by puppets, gives creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker a chance to blow up some of the most elaborate miniature sets ever built.
