Movie Summary

Director:
David Zucker
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
From David Zucker, the director of The Naked Gun and Airplane! comes a bare-knuckle comedy where no one is safe from the onslaught of lunacy. When obnoxious Hollywood director Michael Malone organizes a Ban the 4th of July campaign, his efforts are upended by a gang of spirits from America s past. Zucker roasts a herd of sacred cows in this latest parody featuring an all-star cast.

Metacritic Score

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times

    It's a gag-strewn, hit-and-miss affair that's not without its chuckles.

  • 40

    The New York Times Nathan Lee

    Cheap shots and mean spirits abound, as do celebrity cameos (James Woods, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, Kelsey Grammer). But it's the laziness of the writing that most offends.

  • 30

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Conservatives score a few political points but aren't very funny in An American Carol, a cheesy spitball directed at the very large target of a Michael Moore-like filmmaker.
