We gave it a B

In their gleefully daft marionette burlesque, Matt Stone and Trey Parker re-create the ’60s Thunderbirds style to send up several decades’ worth of xenophobic action clichés. The movie skewers a world in which our pop culture, and more than a little of our national policy, now celebrate fake strength and fake power.
