An American Carol

Watching Michael Moore get bitch-slapped by JFK is one of the few redeeming pleasures in David Zucker’s right-wing comedy, which reduces humor to a patriotic duty and claims to be wildly irreverent (exempting the military, conservative pundits, American heroes and the Ten Commandments, of course). The gaseous Moore (here caricatured as “Michael Malone” and played by Chris Farley’s brother Kevin) is an easy and deserving target, but branding any dissent against post-9/11 abuses of executive authority as traitorous just seems, well, laughable.
