But Is It Funny?

Roger Ebert pans "Team America". Sully thinks this fact only confirms the film's virtue. After watching it, he 's even more certain of its greatness.

Ebert can be trusted on anything but crude comedies, which he as a rule treats with contempt. Sully, of course, cannot be trusted on anything. After two reviews I still don't have anything trustworthy.

The Times makes a case for the movie, but mostly all it tells me is that Stone and Parker's reactionary streak -- always present -- is far more front and center this time. Hmm. But is it funny? I consider the South Park movie a masterpiece. Little help?

Ahh, Roy at alicublog says it's funny. Well, there's one.
