You’ve heard of Christmas in July, but what about… July in Christmas? Conservative comedy film AN AMERICAN CAROL riffs on the classic Dickens tale to tell a story about a “Scrooge” type who wants to ban the 4th of July. Protagonist Michael Malone is a thinly veiled sendup of leftist documentarian Michael Moore. Watch as he praises Cuba’s healthcare system, but believes that 9/11 was the result of poor foreign policy decisions by the United States. He also opposes war at any cost. How could anyone be so cruel, callous, and detached? Three American spirits visit Michael and attempt to stop him from misusing his freedom of speech. David Zucker, co-director of all-time classic comedies such as AIRPLANE! and THE NAKED GUN, uses his impeccable sense of comedic timing to bring actual jokes to a conservative comedy film. It’s very rare that we get to have any genuine laughs watching these, but we do laugh during this, so we must give credit where credit is due. This rare occurrence makes AN AMERICAN CAROL by default the best conservative comedy ever made, but the bar is extremely low. Ultimately, this film is very racist and stupid. Even a true genius like Zucker can’t rescue AN AMERICAN CAROL from sinking into the Reflecting Pool of its own ideology.
