"Team America: World Police"

Here's my one-sentence review of Team America: World Police, the latest from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone:

Team America: World Police makes South Park: Bigger Longer & Uncut look like SpongeBob SquarePants.
At lunch today, I was telling a friend that I thought the movie was funny, but watching it made me distinctly uncomfortable:
Me: I wonder if, while watching lions devour Christians at the Colosseum, one Roman ever turned to another and said something like, "Hey, Flavius, do you think this is some sort of sign of the decline and fall of our civilization? And did you see the move that lion just made to devour that Christian?"

Friend: I don't think so. South Park is offensive but has always had clever insights. I'd say that Britney Spears is more of a sign of the decline and fall of Western civilization.
