The Feel Good Movie of 2008

A few months back I posted here about an interesting David Zucker (Airplane and Naked Gun series) film that was in production. Variety now reports that Zucker has gotten distribution and a release date of October 3rd for An American Carol, the story of a fat, anti-American, propaganda filmmaker in a baseball cap. Said crockumentarian (Kevin Farley) is on a campaign to abolish Independence Day and is visited by three ghosts who show him the true meaning of America. Zucker co-wrote the screenplay and directed a huge cast that includes Kelsey Grammer (pictured above with Farley on the set), Leslie Nielsen, Dennis Hopper, James Woods, Robert Davi, and Jon Voight. Our old buddy Trace Adkins plays one of the spirits.
Oh, Farley's character's name is Michael Malone. Mark October 3rd on the calendar for a night at the Cineplex. Do it for the children.
