“A chainsaw-wielding George Washington teams with beer-loving bro Sam Adams to take down the Brits in a tongue-in-cheek riff on the American Revolution.”

Okay, objectively speaking, America: The Motion Picture is not a great movie. However, this raunchy, utterly inaccurate retelling of America’s revolution is entertaining…possibly against its better judgement.

The joke that raised this movie literally a full grade is the 3/5’s joke near the end of the movie. I don’t want to do a full spoiler, but it is really clever.

America: The Motion Picture tries to blend the over-the-top debaucherous comedy with the smart one-line quirks.

One can tell that this movie is from the creators of Archer, which was an amazing show but has dwindled off the past couple of seasons. Judy Greer, who plays a sexy Martha Washington in the movie, is a familiar voice to those who know her from the show as Cheryl Tunt, Charlotte and Cherlene.

STANKO RATING: B (3.5/5 Stars)
