Ebenezer Scrooge gets the parody treatment from veteran writer/director David Zucker (Airplane!, Scary Movie 4) with this comedy starring Kevin Farley as a derisive documentarian ( la Michael Moore) who's visited by three ghosts intent on instilling the American spirit in the disillusioned filmmaker. Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Leslie Nielsen, James Woods, and Dennis Hopper co-star in the Vivendi Entertainment production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide

Funny (sort of) if You're Conservative by xscd January 9, 2009 - 6:19 PM PST

This 2008 U.S. election-year movie makes fun of liberals from the point of view of political conservatives.

Featuring Kelsey Grammar (who campaigned for Republican John McCain in 2008) as the ghost of General George S. Patton trying to (literally) slap some sense (and militaristic patriotism) into documentary film-maker Michael M--aloney, the film's humor is squarely aimed against political liberals and progressives.

If you are liberal or progressive and in a generous mood, you may find the movie an interesting insight into the generally similar worldview of conservatives and a set of shared values, or you may feel instead that the movie is a bait-and-switch scheme that promises light entertainment but delivers (or tries to) a sobering political and ideological message.
