About the Movie

"Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World" is the hilarious story of what happens when the U.S. Government sends comedian Albert Brooks to India and Pakistan to find out what makes the over 300 million Muslims in the region laugh. Brooks, accompanied by two state department handlers and his trusted assistant, goes on a journey that takes him from a concert stage in New Delhi, to the Taj Mahal, to a secret location in the mountains of Pakistan. Written and directed by Albert Brooks, "Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World" is a funny and insightful look at some of the issues we are dealing with in a post-9/11 world. The comedy also stars Sheetal Sheth, John Carroll Lynch, Jon Tenney, and Fred Dalton Thompson.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Anyone who can mine so many laughs from the world in which we live since 9/11 deserves applause. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The movie has a perversely unifying effect: Muslims, Christians and Jews may not be able to agree on exactly who the heck Jesus is, but they're fully capable of bonding in boredom. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: For all its silliness, Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World is also a work of integrity. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: This is by far the most embarrassing of [Albert Brooks'] seven movies. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

Worst movie

Poorly written and poorly acted. Don't waste your $.

Not THAT bad really.

The movie was ok and funny in a witty way. It could've actually been 100x better if they improved the plot, other than that it's a good film to see something different.
