Great parody!

First off, the only reason I ticked violence is because there is excessive violence towards civilians, who are constantly put in danger because of Team America's ridiculous shenanigans. The movie itself is a great parody of America's role in the world and it's amazing how well Matt and Trey can make so many real jokes about American lifestyles in such a short amount of time.
