    An American Carol, David Zucker’s unabashedly pro-American, anti-left comedy, came out Friday without being screened for critics. But movie critics pounced anyway, just a day later than normal. Some critics used turns of phrase they’d never utter in describing, say, a Michael Moore opus. Check out the Miami Herald’s Rene Rodriguez, who calls the film one of the worst movies of all time: “It is the movie’s underlying tone — its relentless hammering on its pro-war, anti-dissent, anti-liberal message — that makes watching it such a sour experience.”...

    The lights at the Westglen 18 Theater in Kansas City, Kansas, in the heartland of America, went down on a packed house of young and old all anxiously awaiting the beginning of “An American Carol”, the latest movie from David Zucker – the brilliant humorist behind the “Airplane” and “Naked Gun” movies. Zucker film veteran Leslie Nielsen opens the film, telling his grandkids the tale of one Michael Malone – a producer of anti-American documentaries and the instigator of a movement to abolish the Fourth of July. Borrowing from Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”, Malone is visited by John F. Kennedy,...

    ‘The Passion’ producer says American Carol movie part of ‘emerging culture war’ Hollywood, Oct 3, 2008 / 03:48 pm (CNA).- Steve McEveety, producer of "The Passion of the Christ," has written a letter encouraging people to see the new movie "An American Carol," comparing buying tickets for the movie to casting a vote in the “emerging culture war.” American Carol producer John Shepherd explained to CNA that the movie is meant to make Hollywood question its animosity towards conservatives. “In the coming weeks your vote is going to play a crucial role in the battle for the hearts and minds...

    The plot: It's the Fourth of July, and a goofy grandfather, Leslie Nielsen, is telling his grandchildren a fairy tale about the grinch who stole Independence Day. Only it's not a grinch. It's Michael Moore, er . . . "Michael Malone." And it's a true story, not a fairy tale. Moore/Malone wants to eliminate the Fourth of July and has enlisted a number of liberal groups to do it with him. Meanwhile, Islamic terrorists want to recruit Moore to do a terrorist movie for them, to make it easier to recruit jihadists. Moore's nephew is in the military and wants...

    DHP Review: An American Carol Posted by Dirty Harry on Thursday, October 2nd, 2008 For the record, the cut I saw of An American Carol was not the finished cut. As a matter of fact, I was told it was the first cut. So you can safely assume that the film has improved since. Political satire is a tough genre requiring a wire walker at the helm with the talent and maturity to avoid the dual pitfalls of sanctimony and pretension. John Cusack couldn’t do it. War, Inc. was an embarrassment that wallowed in both of those pitfalls and could...

    Los Angeles For anyone who has ever been on a movie set, the commotion inside Warner Brothers Studio 15 will be familiar: serious-faced actors and actresses quietly rehearsing their lines; the director of photography huddled with his assistants around two high-definition screens inside a small black tent reviewing the last scenes; extras lounging around the set trying both to stay out of the way and to get noticed; carpenters busily working to construct the set for the next scene; a frazzled first assistant director guzzling Red Bull and yelling instructions to anyone who will listen. "Rolling," he shouts. Others throughout...

    Americans numbed by the daily barrage of politics-as-usual are about to be awakened by some new fireworks -- Hollywood-style. Imagine documentary filmmaker Michael Moore and director David Zucker ("Airplane!" and "The Naked Gun") in the center ring and you begin to get the idea. Zucker's new movie, "An American Carol" (due in theaters Oct. 3), is a shot across Hollywood's bow, aimed directly at Moore. No slouch in self-defense -- or self-promotion -- Moore will release his own online movie, "Slacker Uprising," a few days before Zucker's to reap the benefit of the backhanded buzz. The release of both films...

    The comedy director who gave us such immortal movie lines as “Oh stewardess, I speak jive” and “Don’t call me Shirley” is now leveling his sights at documentary filmmaker Michael Moore. David Zucker, the director and writer who helped create “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun” franchise has called on Hollywood’s tiny but tightly knit Republican A-list crowd to help him make a broad yet unusually right-leaning political satire titled “An American Carol.” The low-budget indie co-stars Emmy winner Kelsey Grammer with Oscar-winner Jon Voight, cinema icon Dennis Hopper, model-heiress Paris Hilton and frequent Zucker stooge Leslie Nielsen in minor roles....

    The video sharing site YouTube, just recently purchased by Google, has once again allowed a band of determined users to censor something they don't like.The latest casualty is a a controversial spoof political ad by a Republican filmmaker David Zucker (producer of such films as "Scary Movie 4," "Airplane," among others) which depicts former secretary of state Madeline Albright, a Democrat who served in the Clinton administration, acting as a maid, servant and cheerleader for Islamic terrorists and North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. After the Republican party declined to run with it, the ad was sent to Matt Drudge...

"John Kerry's indecisiveness and flip-flopping are no laughing matter-that is until we teamed up with Hollywood hit maker David Zucker," said Club for Growth.Net president Stephen Moore. "David, whose credits include the blockbuster comedies "Airplane" and "The Naked Gun," has found a way to work his movie magic to create the...

    A group of anti-Kerry Vietnam veterans whose television commercials attacking the senator shook the presidential race filed a report Friday showing it raised about $9 million through the end of September, and the group says it has raised millions more since then. The numbers came as the group announced its largest advertising buy ever - more than $3 million- this week. One commercial shows a series of veterans questioning issues like Mr. Kerry's service medals and his meeting with North Vietnamese in Paris at the time of the peace talks there. The last veteran states flatly, "John Kerry cannot be...

    Write/Producer/Director/Actor David Zucker, who has produced movies such as Airplane, Police Squad, Naked Gun, and Phone Booth, was one of the panelists today at the Liberty Film Festival in West Hollywood. One of the more memorable comments of the 3-day festival was made by Zucker during the panel discussion with other producers, writers, and actors. Zucker's family has been a typical Jewish Democratic family forever. He has now become the black sheep of the family since announcing his intention to vote for George Bush this year for president. The family was almost in shock to hear that. Zucker calls himself...
