You clearly haven't seen the opening ceremonies then...
Haha. Insecure Americans.
I was thinking this too. There were moments that really made me think of the Stonehenge part of Spinal Tap.
...I felt like I was watching something being created in a Christopher Guest film...

Ever hear of a body double? GHW Bush would jumped himself. AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A QUEEN. She's just an old hag with no job who happened to choose her parents wisely. At least Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, and Kim Kardashian have held jobs.
They parachuted the Queen in what more do you want?
'Abe Lincoln' was actually Isambard Kingdom Brunel (portrayed by Sir Kenneth Brannagh) and the sequence in which he featured was a tribute to the Industrial Revolution which, as I'm sure you know, began in Britain.
That whole beginning with a bunch of Abe Lincoln impersonators prancing around a mini-golf course was a bit strange. But they totally lost me when they followed that with an apparent tribute to air pollution. I mean, WTF? At least the Queen's entrance was somewhat entertaining.
