About the Movie
From David Zucker, the director of Naked Gun and Airplane!, comes a bare-knuckle comedy where no one is safe from the onslaught of lunacy! When obnoxious Hollywood director Michael Malone (Kevin Farley) organizes a "Ban the 4th of July" campaign, his efforts are upended by a gang of spirits from America's past. Zucker roasts a herd of sacred cows in this latest parody featuring an all-star cast.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Cheap shots and mean spirits abound, as do celebrity cameos. But it's the laziness of the writing that most offends.
Rotten: Only you can decide whether you're in the mood to wade through the smear of stink jokes and political ravings.
Rotten: Poorly made indie production has a script that feels like a list of ripostes collected over the last several years to liberal criticisms of the U.S.: The whole enterprise feels far more agenda- than entertainment-driven.
Rotten: Given that this supremely silly satire directed by The Naked Gun's David Zucker plays more like something slapped together to beat an expiration date, it's hard to get too worked up about it.
