More reviews: Maher's "Religulous"

Normally we wouldn't have touched it with a barge pole - neither would Pamela - if it weren't for Geert Wilders ...

Atlas Shrugs: "At the movies .... with Wilders," by Pamela Geller

At the leftard movies with Geert Wilders ... woot. The counter jihad's perfect date ............ lol

Wild horses could not have dragged me to a Bill Maher production .... but Wilders could

It was his idea and he is actually in the movie and hadn't seen it yet (!) so he gets a get-out-of- jail-free card on this one. Frankly, Wilders appearance is the highlight of the movie and the only snapshot of reason in an otherwise leftist, religion hating rant. Wilders was the sole (soul) sane moment. I am surprised Maher used it.

Bill Maher's "Religulous" - as in ridiculous- apt as Maher's non stop superiority and contempt was ridiculous. Marketed as a "pro-atheism" movie, what it is, is a bash religion mess. Lots of Maher verbal diarrhea.

Maher lampoons, Christianity, Scientology, Judaism, Mormonism, and touches upon Islam (at the end) but hey .... all religions are equal and equally stupid, right?

Always looking for an easy mark he kicks off his circle jerk at a truck stop chapel where one fellow, Joe Sixpack I think, saw Maher's intent and walked out. We liked him. (...) >>>

An American Carol: the Real Review

The People's Cube: ""An American Carol" Hurts The Liberal Media's Funny Bone," by Red Square (First published in American Thinker)

A unanimously negative media response to the political slapstick movie American Carol reinforces my theory that humor -- and satire in particular -- is an accurate litmus test of one's political and ideological convictions, even if one insists on having no convictions at all. If you want to check your friends' politics, take them to see this conservative comedy and watch the reaction.

Committed liberals won't laugh at conservative humor and vice versa. If they don't agree on the joke's basic philosophical premise, the sting will miss the spot and the joker will be shrugged off as a pathetic fool (for reference see conservative reaction to any of the David Letterman shows in the last ten years).

Besides, what kind of satire is that which doesn't show President Bush as a cross-eyed war-mongering idiot with a Hitler mustache? Without that minimum requirement film critics can't really be expected to rate a political comedy as groundbreaking, original, and funny. Looks like they all had prior commitments.

Am I implying that all American film critics are committed liberals? Not just yet -- we must psychoanalyze them first.

The fact that all critics -- who otherwise are a rather disunited bunch - displayed a monolithic unity in declaring American Carol "unfunny" speaks not so much about the new film as about their old allegiances in culture wars. Their infuriated braying from across the political minefields helps to identity their species and gives away the locations of minefields. The mischievous comedy worked like a flare sent from behind the enemy lines, exposing hostile fortifications and troop movements, causing commotion, and providing additional comic relief. It would be worth making American Carol just for that.

But if you're an academic pacifist and prefer a highbrow, non-violent analogy, consider likening American Carol to a yardstick that allows us empirically to measure the disconnect between the media and the American public. (...) >>>

The Lightness of Being Socialist

Folks, in honor of the candidate this post is slightly off the usual format.

Things are getting serious ... the trolls are out in force, doing their worst to change the voters' perception of reality so they will cast a ballot for The One ... an example:

... visit a Republican political gathering, camera in hand, shove a mic in their faces asking some expedient question - for example "Is Obama a terrorist?" ... keep soliciting and annoying the crap out of people until you meet one gullable specimen who'll fall into the trap ... then put the vid on YouTube with the title "the Republican mob is so shockingly ignorant, they don't even know the finer points of the creed" (the Messiah, as even the most base person knows, was immaculately conceived: any reference to a father just shows deep, infathomable ignorance) ... part I, part II ...

... alternatively - when the opposite effect is required, shutting them up - proceed as follows: bring accusations of racism (not necessarily justified, any epithet that can be explained as a pejorative will do - works 99% of the time), or enforce self-censorship by exerting political correctness.

As the venom is spreading and toxin levels are rising - not in the last place by the unprecedented smear campaign against Sarah Palin (that being of course 'truth to power'), the O campaign last night pressed upon the opponents to 'tone down a notch', implying The One is put in danger from "right-wing militia nuts". That can be categorized per above: enforce self-censorship by exerting political correctness.

Clearly it's time to maintain a sense of humor. Please do yourselves a favor: keep your sanity and tune in to The People's Cube! It'll keep things in perspective ... guaranteed. An example ...

"Diverse Obama Logos: To Each According To His Hyphen"

It is a matter of common knowledge that the old-fashioned idea of One Nation Undivided is incompatible with diversity and multiculturalism. For the same reason, the concept of One Obama Logo For All has been recently found at conflict with the presidential hopeful's philosophy of catering to each minority group with a different set of words and images. As a result, his campaign has unveiled a new collection of ethnically-specific Obama logos to match each minority's pre-approved role, legend, and grievances, in full compliance with the divide-and-conquer revolutionary doctrine developed by Antonio Gramsci and perfected by Saul Alinsky. (...) >>>

(btw our apologies for not being able to reproduce Obama blue - in spite of heroic efforts we just don't seem to be getting it right)

Here's Jon Voight on Glenn Beck, shining a light on The Method:

Glenn, really - "where does this platform of hate come from?" I'll tell you: in the words of Mr Icke, a hero who recently figured in "Mass Mind Control and Psychology" ... "(...) people who have a self-identity of being kind, loving and caring for others (...) is always a fake identity because no-one lives up to that all the time, and I mean no-one. (...) ‘It was you who made me react like that’ or ‘they deserved it’ are among the [regular methods of dealing with dissonance] (...) This filters reality to fit the self-identity and (...) why it was not their fault and not their responsibility. In short, they will protect the self-identity at all costs. (...) To overcome the negative effects of cognitive dissonance I would offer just one sentence: it's okay not to be 'perfect' and it's okay to be wrong (...) ... hear, hear!

... in a word, Glenn, it's projection! The Left cannot live up to their own superior moral standards, so what you do is project those failings on to your opponent. Watch this vid, in which some armchair psychologist is trying to make John McCain look like an angry, erratic geriatric in the perception of the audience (so glad the candidate really has the patience of an angel).

Regretfully the doc ground the diagnosis to mince-meat.

... bet you're feeling already uplifted? now to the really fun part of this edifying post, the musical intermezzo ... this one is COMPULSORY ...

The Cube: "Sing For Change: Children Compose Hymns To Obama"

Sing for Change chronicles a recent Sunday afternoon, when children, on their own will, gathered to sing original songs in the belief that their singing would lift up our communities for the coming election. Light, hope, courage and love shine through these nonvoting children who believe that their very best contribution to the Obama campaign is to sing.

This music video embodies the nature of the Obama campaign: its grassroots inspiration, its inclusiveness, its community building. The willingness of all was a testament to our hope, unity, courage, joy and belief in the future represented by these children. (...) >>>

Be sure to click through and scroll down for the important lyrics. Print out, learn by heart, and keep under your pillow, next to the red hankie. Time's up ... celebratory wrap up by Glenn ...

An American Carol: the objective reviews are in!

PJM: "Big Shock: Critics Hate An American Carol", by Christian Toto

- If they had more than two thumbs to direct downward,
they would have used them to trash the conservative comedy -
- "one of the worst movies of all time" -

An American Carol, David Zucker’s unabashedly pro-American, anti-left comedy, came out Friday without being screened for critics.

But movie critics pounced anyway, just a day later than normal.

Movie studios occasionally hold films back from critics. Typically, it’s a sign the studio has little faith in the film or it knows the movie in question will be bombarded with negative reviews.

In Zucker’s case, the lack of screenings could simply be an acknowledgment that the vast majority of film critics lean left and won’t take kindly to their side being hit hard. The director himself said film critics wouldn’t like the film’s politics and therefore wouldn’t give the film a fair shake.

The evidence bears that theory out, although even this critic found plenty at fault with the film. Some critics slammed the film fairly without attacking Zucker’s politics — or the conservative nature of the film. Others let their ideological flags flap in the breeze, professionalism be darned. (...)

Check it out, read it all >>>

Be sure not to miss the comments ...

- "Now I will DEFINITELY see it" - "if they are SO aggressive, it means the film REALLY changes something" - "did the critics drown your firstborn or something?" - "the laughs were boisterous throughout the movie" - "It contained some good jokes and a great message,
what’s not to like about that?" -

An American Carol and Politics

Following posting is up on the site of "An American Carol":

We have had heard from numerous people across the country that there has been some ticket fraud when buying a ticket for An American Carol this past weekend.

Please check your ticket. If you were in fact one of those people that were "mistakenly" sold a ticket for another movie please fill out the form below. Hold on to your ticket so we can have proof.

If you have noticed other irregularities with the theatres in your area please let us know in the comment section below. For instance, Rated R film rating (when in fact we are rated PG-13), posters not being up, not being listed on the marquee, image or focus problems, sound issues, etc.

Please email us a picture of your ticket stub to

We are investigating.

The webform is available on the site of "An American Carol".

Apparently, at least TEN theaters are currently being investigated for attributing An American Carol ticket sales to OTHER movies! There have also been wide scale reports of theaters listing the movie as being rated "R" instead of it's true "PG" rating.

If you have a ticket that might be fraudulent, or if you have a tip on Theater fraud, please contact the folks at An American Carol immediately!

Countdown to "An American Carol"

From the An American Carol promotion team on Facebook ...

It's almost time, folks!!

We are at T-minus 2 days and counting! Thank you so much for all of your support during this critical OPENING WEEK! (...)

We’ve searched the web for some of today’s blog worthy tidbits about the film. You’ll find those links and a few quotes below.

See Information Below:

- Kevin Farley on the View

- David Zucker’s spoof on appeasement created for the RNC; here's the Crockett Films YouTube Channel ...

- David Zucker on Hannity and Colmes

- An article on the webcast with David Zucker:

“I got to participate in a virtual press conference with David Zucker this evening and it was awesome. He’s a self professed liberal convert who turned conservative after watching the left’s reactions to 9-11. He got frustrated with the “what did we do to bring this upon ourselves” mindset of liberal America and decided that, as a country, it was time to put on big-boy pants and man up…”

- A fantastic, comprehensive commentary by Rob Viglione of

- Kelsey Grammer With Laura Ingraham

Laura Ingraham hosted Kelsey Grammer of "An American Carol"

“Grammer said that this is a typical David Zucker film. He said that they stand up for the soldiers and the war. Grammer said that it has been a tough eight years in Hollywood as the liberal left was in constant despair over the Bush administration. Ingraham said she had visited the "Cheers" set when Grammer was part of that effort. He said it was a terrific time to be on the show.

Grammer said that Kevin Farley, Chris Farley's brother, is a send up of Michael Moore in the film - though Grammer says that they are much nicer to Moore than he would be to the conservatives. He said it is an all-American film. He said it is a PG-13 rated film. He said he has a few liberal friends who are rationale and that he can talk with. He said he likes Dennis Miller as a comedian. He said that Rachel Maddow on MSNBC seems quite whiny and that the network is akin to DailyKos on television. “

- Earl’s Blog

“Then there’s An American Carol, which even though is a spoof movie, is from the fathers of spoof. David Zucker, the man behind Airplane and Naked Gun, is behind this one, so I have faith in it. I personally didn’t think it was going to play in my theater, that is until I checked Fandango about 10 minutes ago. You guys haven’t let me down before, you chose Horton last time and it was better than 10000 BC, so I’m trusting you again. I personally think An American Carol is to be better, it looks like a really funny, good time spoof flick. What should I see, Eagle Eye, or An American Carol? “
- A quote by Eric Odom via Miss Attilla:

I want to help the folks behind the movie as much as possible. Unlike most liberal-directed movies coming out of Hollywood, An American Carol is sort of the first of its kind. Sure, there have been other center-right films to hit the market, but most did not have quite the opportunity this one has . . . .

If An American Carol does well on opening weekend, it’s safe to say that other films with a center-right flavor will follow. This movie, with an all-star cast and a powerful set of directors/producers/writers, can score HUGE box office points and send a message to the Hollywood elites.

The problem is that it can’t do this without our help. While the film isn’t really a low-budget film, it certainly needs the help of the grassroots movement to give it a kick-start next week. The movie will open in more than 2,000 theaters on October 3rd, and we need to get anyone and everyone we know to go see it.
"What [you're asking] can I do to get involved?"

Message, message, message.

(1) Word of mouth is our finest tool in this information war, and we need to put it to work like never before.

PLEASE make sure you tell everyone you know about An American Carol and how it opens on October 3rd. (Opening weekend often being a big measurement of a movie's appeal, by studio execs. --ed) Tell all your friends, family, co-workers, online connections, etc… everyone.

(2) Social Networks
I’ve set up a Facebook group that I plan to use over the next eight days to promote and coordinate grassroots efforts to market the movie. Click to join the Facebook group.


Once you’ve joined the group, please check the news section to see if there is an event planned to see the movie in your area. If there is not, create an event and let me know so that I can add it to the news section.

There is also an official Twitter profile that I am told will be used by the PR folks behind An American Carol. Follow An American Carol there (link below).

(3) An American Carol Action Network

Join the social network set up for An American Carol.

This is our chance to help a conservative movie succeed and show Hollywood what Americans want more of. We must work together as a grassroots movement to help get the word out.”

Thank you Eric!

- This article made us chuckle a bit. A big thanks to Emily from The title alone is reason enough to post:
Ten Liberal Movies So Lame They Make Even Democrats Want to Vote Republican
Be sure and check out #2!

- And last, but certainly not least, comments on the film from a Liberal blogger:
“An American Carol” is a movie that’s coming out October 3rd and one that I expect to be extremely offended by. The trailer alone has gotten me pissed beyond belief, so I don’t think I’ll actually see the movie in fear that my head will explode.
Blog hard, folks. We’ve got a culture war on our hands here. And this time I know our side will win!! More info and a slide show on IMDb.
