    The Hollywood Right Fights Back

    By Kyle | August 7, 2008

    The Weekly Standard checks in on David Zucker, the “Airplane!” guy and former Barbara Boxer supporter who turned conservative as a direct result of the left’s response to the post-9/11 era and is now making what appears to be one of the most patriotic, gung-ho, love-America movies put out since Hollywood took a permanent left turn during Vietnam. The movie is called “An American Carol” and it’s a parody of “A Christmas Carol” built around not Christmas but the Fourth of July, with the Scrooge figure being a Michael Moore type backed by a Moveon.org kind of group. The movie smells like a hit to me. The article reveals that Kelsey Grammer, who plays Gen. Patton in the movie, is not only a conservative but a friend of Ann Coulter’s, and that the star of the movie will be Kevin Farley, Chris’s younger brother. The dance of conservatives trying to locate one another on the Left Coast is about as delicate as gays trying to find one another in the 50s:

    Zucker and Sokoloff met Farley in April 2007. Zucker described his new film with words he had chosen carefully. “I figured he was like everyone else in Hollywood–a Democrat,” Zucker recalls. “And we knew that this was not a Democrat movie.” It would be a satirical look at the war on terror, he told Farley, and explained that he and Sokoloff were political “moderates.”

    Farley hadn’t seen any of Zucker’s ads and assumed he was like everyone else in Hollywood–a Democrat. So he answered with some strategic ambiguity of his own. “I consider myself a centrist,” he said, worried that they might press him more about his political views.

      It does like something, but the word isn’t hit, though it admittedly does rhyme with it.

      The missing word was “smell”

      The conservatives are coming out of the woodwork in hollywood. It’s a sign of change in the media which the conservative ideals have been lagging WAY WAY behind on.

      It will flop.

      I think this film will be absolutely fantastic. Will it do well in the theater? Prohably not, parodies of any kind usually fare better on the small screen.
