    Saw this one mentioned on AICN, and after a little research, I decided to give it a go. Watched it last night, and loved it. Here's the blurb from Play:

    Five outgoing reporters with mental and physical disabilities hit the road, traveling coast to coast in a hand-painted RV, interviewing everyone they meet. Follow the news team as they explore honky-tonk bars in Nashville, alligator farms in Arkansas, the Grand Canyon and the wild streets of America's cities and towns. Unassuming, funny, and genuine to the core, this is not your typical news show.

    The film never uses humour at the expense of the reporters, and also doesn't dwell on their disabilities. It's legitimately funny, and you can tell that the HYN team really put a smile on a lot of people's faces. Very enjoyable film.

    Not sure if it'll get a theatrical release in the UK, but it's available on R1 DVD. (PlayUSA)

    Is it fiction, or 'real' ?

    Completely real. It's a documentary that follows the gang across the country as they interview people and see the sights. The five all met at a disabled camp years ago. They did some filming then, interviewing people and such. Matt Stone and Trey Parker saw the shorts, loved it, and coughed up the cash to finance the film and the trip. The HYN team even interviews Matt and Trey as a DVD extra.
