The script for this film was actually Plan B from Trey Parker and Matt Stone in making a marionette movie - their first idea was filming ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen word-for-word with the puppets]]. The idea was that the script was silly enough, and the movie would only improve if it was being filmed with SuperMarionation.

The script for this film was actually Plan B from Trey Parker and Matt Stone in making a marionette movie - their first idea there were apparently a bunch of other ideas they tried (see the Trivia tab), and one of them was filming to remake either ''Film/{{Armageddon}}'' or ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen word-for-word with the puppets]]. puppets. The idea was that the script of either movie was silly enough, and the movie would only improve if it was being filmed with SuperMarionation.

*** Parker and Stone had a particular beef with MichaelMoore and took it out on his character. Specifically, Moore made it seem like they'd done an animation for one of his documentaries (''Film/BowlingForColumbine'') that was in favor of his position. They didn't, and they weren't. In fact, for the scene where Moore explodes himself in a suicide attack, they stuffed his puppet with ''ham''.
