The political satire and usual Zucker style parody don't mix well and we're left with a disappointing 'Christmas Carol' themed spoof that seems like it has wit, but really is just a mostly unfunny time.

This was such a pro-war, pro-gun, pro-Republican piece of crap, that only David Zucker could make me go. Yes, there was a lot of sight gags and some pretty funny dialogue, but the whole thing made me kinda sick to my stomach when it got all preachy. Hated it. Miss it.

An American Carol Falls 'Flat'

“Oh, Grandpa fell asleep again.”
“No, he’s dead.”
That’s right; Grandpa’s heart has stopped… most likely on account of severe boredom. Why you ask? Well he must have been watching An American Carol, the new David Zucker film starring Kevin Farley. After leaving the theatre I was in a state of languor. I had spent the last 83 minutes watching the extreme Right Wing’s humor… ehem, pardon me, attempts at humor. No movie can be that bad, you say? Well, let me put it this way… Beverly Hills Chihuahua is getting better reviews.
An American Carol is the Right Wing’s attempt at a propaganda film. The Left has Michael Moore (love him or hate him he knows how to make an entertaining documentary), and the Right has… the guy who brought us Airplane and The Naked Gun series!? So...
