Indonesian ‘Karate Kid’ Ripoff ‘Little Obama’ Is This Year’s Hottest Summer Blockbuster

by Jack Stuef

This is a little old but is SUPER IMPORTANT TO DEMOCRACY. Indonesian director Damien Dematra has finished shooting on Little Obama, a film based very, very loosely on our President Barry Soweto’s formative years in the country. It looks very good. Look, that’s where Obama got his karate skillz! It all makes sense now! And you see that little brown Desi Arnaz kicking those marbles? That’s when Barry came up with his most vindictive idea, Obamacare.

“Also not a fairy tale”—Rogert Ebert

The Wall Street Journal notes this film is based on a book written by—wow, the same guy who’s directing this thing! I bet the Internet wouldn’t have an image of the cover of—oh, that is a very good cover.

There is an official website for this with another trailer. Apparently Obama falls in love with a gay man and rides on the back of his bike. DON’T ASK DON’T TELL. And there’s a media gallery:

Oh, nice, saluting the Stars and Stripes.

Do they show the bit where Obama says, “Enough of this ****hole of a country, I’m going to L.A. to make it big in HOLLYWOOD!”? Bet they cut that part out.

OMFG! Jack have you lost it?????? Shit, now that you’ve let it out the bag that Barry is a Polish Kenyan Muslin, the wingnutz will be going on for years to come. What were you thinking???

In a couple of scenes his hands are grotesqueley large and red. It must be from masturbating.

Oh goody, I get to go off on child actors again.

They aren’t fully emotionally or socially developed.

Therefore, 99% of the time they cannot put the proper emotion into the words they are saying.

And also genius writers give kids dialogue that is clearly adult – things kids in the real world would never say. Sometimes they do this to try to be funny. IT’S NOT FUNNY!

Anyway, I am very much looking forward to this movie and its assuredly badly-translated subtitles.

SayItWithWookies June 30, 2010 at 4:23 pm

This blatant hagiography is just scandalous. Now look at our previous president — the one who was born in America. That guy won’t be the subject of adoring subtitled fictionalizations of his childhood in foreign countries — mostly because subtitlers wouldn’t be able to understand the slurred speech.

JMP June 30, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Just as long as it’s not aired here; reminding them of the Indonesian portion of Barack’s childhood will just feed the conspiracy-theory racist morans.

Did the CIA make them cut out the Manchurian Candidate indoctrination part?

I dunno, the kid playing Barry looks awfully wholesome to adequately portray the Muslim-Nazi-Antichrist. Also, needs moar snarling black dogs in graveyards.

facehead June 30, 2010 at 4:41 pm

I’m getting so tired of these remakes.

What about “The Omen” wasn’t good enough?

StanTheComedyMan! June 30, 2010 at 4:49 pm

Kinda hard for “Barry” to punch or kick effectively.

Him not having a backbone at all.

And if it’s kung fu, instead of Goju or other karate, there’s no “School of the Jellyfish.”

[Spoiler: The "Wax On/Wax Off" scene involves a cue tip, and Barry's elephant-size ears.]

No ants were harmed in the making of this film.

I have a feeling The Criterion Collection is going to pick this up immediately…. and lol @Suds McKenzie

Luke Warm June 30, 2010 at 5:15 pm

At 1:36 he is clearly making the sign of the devil with hand pressed against the globe, representing the SATANIC NEW WORLD ORDER. This Also his friend with the pink shirt tucked into his shorts at 1:25 is obviously a homosexual muslim.

Needs more Steven Seagal breaking Jeff Sessions over his knee like a twig…..maybe in “Little Obama II: Barry Takes America”

babyeinstein June 30, 2010 at 5:28 pm

has anyone noticed the name of the kid playing obama????? goodness!!!

Shanghaied June 30, 2010 at 5:34 pm

who is the obvious pederast in knee socks and bowling shoes and what is his role in the current administration. I’m just asking questions here.

hoosiermama June 30, 2010 at 5:35 pm

Whoa! Is that a scene from The Last Airbender? NICE!

That looks like the most amazing movie in the history of intergalactic cinema. Can’t wait to see it.

It’s hard to paint people as evil socialists when they wear aloha shirts and bermuda pants all day.

I simply stepped out for a while to get some fresh air, a case of booze, and a carton of whores, and — having exhausted all three — figured an outdated interracial gay kiddie porn foreign snuff film post was as good a time as any to stumble back in and stick my dick in the rice cone.

Oh jebus, I’m coughing up blood from laughing so hard at the trailer. I don’t think I could survive the full movie.

[re=609796]Extemporanus[/re]: woot woot! Haven’t been able to get a good Ox-Rat cycle going at all! Btw, have you heard that the entire Palin family has hookworms?

SayItWithWookies July 1, 2010 at 12:01 am

Holy crap — I just watched that trailer and that was the longest two minutes and eighteen seconds of my life. It looks to be an Indonesian version of The Brady Bunch filmed on leftover soundstages and set to a discoed-up soundtrack to Dr. Zhivago to give it all the drama and significance that the script was supposed to have but doesn’t. It doesn’t help that the director seems to be aphasic, because it seems like none of those people knew anything about how actual humans interact. Which doesn’t lead me to hope that the dialog saves the movie, considering. It’s so typical of the Democrats, though — when they get their own version of An American Carol, it turns out to be Indonesian.

Seriously, someone needs to make a real movie about this in the future. Also, his mom is kinda cute.

Nothing says NAMBLA like the outfit Cantor’s wearing at 2:04.

trondant July 1, 2010 at 4:02 am

[re=609818]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Yeah, but the teatards are too busy snorting meth out of Palin’s distended asshole through a bendy straw to notice that all their ‘muricun flags were made in China, so it evens out.

Geogre July 1, 2010 at 7:00 am

[re=609696]JMP[/re]: Oh, well, there is, um, controversy alright.

See, there is a scene… of little Obama learning to recite the Koran.

Now, a reasonable person would look at the generality of the account and how fictionalized it is, how the author/auteur has pushed his material for an Indonesian audience (the purpose of the film is to encourage Indonesian youth to fulfill their dreams, he says) and say, “Meh. He doesn’t have evidence, except that all little kids would have done that. Furthermore, it would have as much of an effect on Obama as my reciting Longfellow at the same age did on me.”

How many reasonable people are there in politics now?

I lived in Jakarta for ten years. Menteng is no joke. The smell would kill most Americans.
-that’s an Indonesian flag, not Polish. Flip it.
-there’s always a tall, gawky gay guy in Indonesian movies playing a twelve-year-old. Why? I don’t know…there just always is. Remake of ‘Chips’? remake of ‘Fame’? Tall, gawky gay guy.
-When Barack Obama, PRESIDENT Barack Obama was shaking hands at a rally in Nevada. I said ‘Good morning’ to him in Indonesian. Know what he did?
He looked into my eyes, shook my hand and pretty much shouted “Alright! Great to see some Indonesians up here!’
And off he went. By God, do you think John McCain woulda been able to shift gears that fast? Palin or Dubya woulda had the Secret Service grab me for ‘talkin’ sorcerer’!
Barack Obama is just that smart. There was no way to prepare for that moment. I look about as Indonesian as Donald Trump does.
Birthers can suck it.
