Popular Broadway actor Gary Johnston is recruited by the elite counter-terrorism organization Team America: World Police. As the world begins to crumble around him, he must battle with terrorists, celebrities and falling in love.
The North American counter-terrorism force Team America attacks a group of terrorists in Paris. Later, the leader of the organization, Spottswoode, invites the famous Broadway actor Gary Johnston to join his world police and work undercover in Cairo, infiltrating a terrorist organization in the hope they will disclose their plan of destroying the world. Team America destroy the cell of terrorists, but then the Panama Canal is attacked by the criminals as a payback. Gary feels responsible for the death of many innocents and leaves the counter-terrorism organization. When the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Il, joins a group of pacifist actors and actresses with the intention of using weapons of massive destruction, Team America tries to avoid the destruction of the world.Written by

The Unrated DVD contains several deleted and alternate scenes:
An alternate take of the scene where Joe and Gary go over the distress signal outside the tavern. As Gary walks away, Joe tells him that he thinks Lisa has feelings for him (Gary).
A deleted section when Gary quits the team. First Spottswoode apologizes for letting racism cloud his judgment in Cairo. He says racism convinced him the terrorists must be middle eastern. He then uses a slur to describe Kim Jong Il and vows never to be racist again. He then expresses his hatred for Winnie the Pooh to Gary, as he (Spottswoode) believes "that c***sucking bear killed Jack Kennedy."
The full fight between Gary and the guards in Kim Jong's main entrance hall, that is only implied in the final cut.
In the North Korean prison, Chris, Joe and Sarah get into an argument with Martin Sheen and Tim Robbins over who the puppets really are.
A deleted scene/outtake with Trey Parker doing Spotteswoode's voice. After Gary proves he can be trusted, Spotteswoode calls him gay, causing Parker and the crew to break out laughing.
A brief deleted scene of a WMD going off in "Anytown, USA."
A deleted portion of the F.A.G. meeting where Ben Affleck, sitting next to Meryl Streep and played by a crew member's hand with the arm dressed up, going on a rant about political "interbreeding" and needing to be taken more "seriouslyer."
A deleted British Newscast that takes place after the Cairo mission. The newscaster announces some world leaders are pissed off at Team America, and it cuts to quick interviews with the French and Egyptian leaders.
A deleted scene in which Michael Moore announces he is making an anti-Team America documentary. He gets a passerby at Mount Rushmore to look into the camera and say that "Team America killed my mother" and "Team America ate my baby."
Yesterday I watched this amusing movie, and besides laughing, it made me think. As European, I wanted to argue in favor of TA that I don't consider that this made in particular against any country, if not against the stupidity that we are tolerating in our lives: manipulation informative, false rumors tried as news and ill wills among people and countries that are a total fallacy. And the fight of Parker and Stone, and the rest of the film team is positive: to remove our asses of the armchair while we laugh and also realize us that this it is the same and dear world for all of us. I believe that it deserves to view it with a wide open mind.
