A liberal's sense of humor ends at the Bush jokes it seems.

Reguardless of what this movie is about, the bigger issue is that Hollywood is making crap. If it's not American Carol ripping liberals, it's people like Michael Moore ripping conservatives or that clown from HBO who just hates God. The problem is that hollywood is a reflection of society and our society is filled with hate. It starts with a country filled with people who don't believe in God and a government (republicans and democrats alike) who have forgotten why this country was founded and what it should stand for.

Hollywood has to sell to it's largest audience, males that are 16-25 years old. That audience generally does not demand renderings of the great classics.

You bet your bootie that I ran out to see the movie on Friday night at the Rave. It was short, sweet, and funny. You gotta love a movie that bashes Michael Moore. The Promenade was hoping, no sign of problems based on the crowd. Forget all your troubles, forget all your cares and go down town, things will be great when your down town, and while your there be sure to catch the movie.

All the best liberal parody comes from South Park. Best of luck to the Zuckers, though. They're due for a hit.

Great movie. Every time a liberal is criticized or the truth is exposed, they whine and cry unfair. Liberals have been bashing Republicans for years and the Republicans have stood quiet. Who wouldn't want to slap Michael Moore or Rosie O'Donnel. Hey Mr Roger Moore I haven't seen any criticism of the Bush Bashing movie. Why, because no one is going to see it or the religious bashing movie of Bill Mahr. Those jerks get a pass. Middle America loves its country and religion. You liberals must learn fodder is fair play. Go see the American Carol you will love it.

Moore is your typical leftist, Hollywood-elite media j a c k a s s. Have abortion (Cider House Rules) or homosexuality (Brokeback Mountain) and he'll love it. Immorality? The S.O.B. will give it four stars.

Have a pro-life theme (Bella) or anything conservative (An American Carol) and he'll hate it.

Typical left-wing liberal jerk.

You are so right. Almost every film out of Hollyweird these days is from the liberal viewpoint, yet have one made regarding the
conservative angle and those like Roger Moore
squeal like pigs! My family saw this movie, enjoyed it along with the rest of the audience
and would recommend it. Even heard it raked in
more $ than Moore's "must see" with Maher last weekend. Think alot of folks are getting tired of having their belief systems trampled and insulted
by the "elitists".

Wow, you are such an "intellectual" you can't even
manage to spell "Piece" correctly. But you sure got the second part of your name right!

"'American Carol' is a mean little mess of a film"

Sure it is - all because it does not agree with your political views. Not a cute little mockumentory like Micheal Moore would do.
