Rave reviews in North Korea for Team America

Maybe KJI is just mad he turned into a cockroach at the end of the movie:
The caricature of North Korea's "Dear Leader", Kim Jong-Il, in the film, "Team America: World Police," is striking a discordant note among North Korean officials, and probably their supreme leader himself, despite his well-known love for private viewings of foreign movies.

The film shows marionettes attempting to stop Kim Jong-Il from destroying cities around the globe.

A Czech newspaper, Lidove Noviny, reports that a North Korean diplomat complained that the film "harms the image of our country." He was even quoted as saying, "Such behavior is not part of our country's political culture."
The squeaky-clean image the DPRK wants to maintain is one of gulags, detention camps, murder, torture, state-sponsored famine and nuclear bomb procurement and sales.
