Awesome / Team America: World Police

Go To

  • Awesome Music: America! FUCK YEAH!!!
    • Everyone has AIDS! AIDS AIDS AIDS!
    • I'm so ronery...
    • Freedom isn't free! It costs folks like you and me...
    • Really, the entire soundtrack, from the hilarious vocal themes that are all dead-on satires of Hollywood cliches, to the surprisingly kickass soundtrack by Harry Gregson Williams.
  • While infiltrating the Cairo terrorists, Gary manages to spin a tragic story about why he decided to become a terrorist, even threatening to "put a jihad on" the terrorist leader if he doesn't believe it.

  • Lisa rides in on a motorcycle and manages to rescue Gary from the terrorists' jeep at practically the last possible second before the ramp on the front of the Team America jeep launches the terrorists into the face of the Sphinx.
  • There are quite a few moments in the battle between Team America and the Film Actors' Guild.
    • When Sarah and Joe are cornered by "panthers," Sarah proves that she's a Not-So-Phony Psychic when she convinces the panthers to turn on and eat their captors.
    • When Susan Sarandon pretends to be a prisoner of the other actors, Gary uses his own acting skills to see through her act, enabling him and Chris to blow her away.
    • Tim Robbins has the rest of Team America dead to rights, when Chris says that he has some bad news for Robbins- "I'm a smoker." He then throws his cigarette at some gasoline at Robbins' feet (which Robbins had planned to use to burn Team America alive), setting him ablaze.
  • The Dicks, Pussies, and Assholes speech.
    Gary Johnston: We're dicks! We're reckless, arrogant, stupid dicks. And the Film Actors Guild are pussies. And Kim Jong Il is an asshole. Pussies don't like dicks, because pussies get fucked by dicks. But dicks also fuck assholes: assholes that just want to shit on everything. Pussies may think they can deal with assholes their way. But the only thing that can fuck an asshole is a dick, with some balls. The problem with dicks is: they fuck too much or fuck when it isn't appropriate — and it takes a pussy to show them that. But sometimes, pussies can be so full of shit that they become assholes themselves... because pussies are an inch and half away from assholes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us fuck this asshole, we're going to have our dicks and pussies all covered in shit!
    • The original explanation is one for Parker and Stone. Given how long it goes on it could have easily lapsed into Metaphorgotten (and that probably would have been a good joke in its own right), but instead the whole thing makes perfect sense.
    • It's also impressive on another level. While Gary had always admired Alec Baldwin (who'd dismissively told him he couldn't compare), this speech enables him to outdo his personal hero and leave him at a loss for words before Kim Jong-Il pulls a You Have Failed Me on Baldwin.
  • "Terrorize THIS!"


How well does it match the trope?
