Chaos Theory is a new theory invented by scientists panicked by the thought that the public were beginning to understand the old ones.

As you have probably guessed by now, I saw Team America: World Police. If you're wondering where the title of this post comes from, it's lifted from the title of the movie's "theme song" of sorts, America, Fuck Yeah. As a theme, the song accomplishes it job with thoroughness and efficiency. I think I might even love it. I'm sure it can be found on any major P2P network, not that I advocate that sort of thing, but you know where to look.

The movie itself may be one of the funniest things I've ever seen. It resides in that strange realm of humor where the fact that they actually made it is half of the joke. There are scenes where nobody's talking, or really doing anything for that matter, but you're just cracking your ass off because there are fucking puppets on the movie screen.

There's been a lot of talk about the movie being pretty much the most offensive thing ever made, but truth be told, I've never been able to view things from a vantage point of being vulnerable to "offense", so I can't help you there. I mean, sure, all arabic speech in the movie sounds like "durka durka jihad mohammed!", and they have a scene of full on, multi-positional, hardcore puppet sex, but in my eyes, that's just comedy, baby.

If you're worried about not being able to laugh because of any politics involved, don't. The guys didn't seem to have any agenda to push with the movie outside of "outspoken Hollywood actors are big douche bags," and I can't see that sentiment rubbing anyone the wrong way. Well, except outspoken Hollywood douche baggy actors that is, but who gives a shit about them?
