An American Carol May 12, 2020

Posted by geoff in News.

Was looking for silly mindless entertainment the other night, and stumbled across a David Zucker (Airplane!, Kentucky Fried Movie, etc.) movie I hadn’t ever heard of: An American Carol (2008). I fired it up, and was stunned to see that it was a conservative movie that made relentless fun of liberals in general and Michael Moore in particular.

It’s not a very good movie, particularly since the sporadic zany slapstick humor doesn’t play well against the heavy-handed lectures on patriotism and defending the country. But seeing an actual patriotic movie amid Hollywood’s normal progressive, American-slamming selections was mind-blowing.

Fun to see Kelsey Grammar stealing the show as General George S. Patton. Jon Voight gave a strong performance as George Washington, but it was a pretty depressing role.

In any case, if you want to marvel at the existence of such a rare creature, have a gander. It’s available on Amazon Prime.

I just finished Sense 8. I am also watching Ozark and one other that I can’t think of right now. I only watch tv when my boyfriend David comes home from work and turns it on. A few years back I fell into the binge watching trap and wasted many a day on the couch.
