Michael Moore Parody “An American Carol”


Recommended Posts

David Zucker is taking a swing at Michael Moore. His new movie "An American Carol" skewers Moore on a variety of issues and stances. It may be worth checking out, after all Zucker did make "Airplane".

Michael Moore Parody “An American Carol”


David Zucker, best known for the movies Airplane and Top Secret, has a new wacky comedy coming out in October: “An American Carol.” Just in time for the last month of Election Madness, this politically-topical film features a parody of filmmaker Michael Moore — named Michael Malone — who has to be taught the real meaning of patriotism by the ghosts of America’s most famous personages.

But is this film going to be a little extreme? Here is a description of one scene in the film:

“In a climactic scene, Moore’s stand-in (here named “Michael Malone”) finds political clarity at the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center while the admonishing ghost of George Washington (played by Jon Voight) hovers nearby.”

Is this being played for laughs? Is it just a pointed partisan attack on Moore in the guise of a wacky comedy movie? Will the 911 scene be considered in bad taste?

We’ll see.

Postscript: Playing the fake Michael Moore in the film is Kevin Farley — brother of the late Chris Farley.

Know what's really sad? People rely on Moore movies to get facts on important topics. Too bad those facts are outright lies, or at best leaves out the truth. It's horrifying that he really does influence public opinion.

But yeah. Let's model our new health system on Cuba's. That sounds like a freakin great idea.
