About the Movie

The Pink Panther meets Borat in this broad satire about a bumbling yet lovable Iranian immigrant who wins the Green Card lottery and moves to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming an American hero. Jimmy Vestvood (Maz Jobrani) aspires to be a cool cop like his childhood idol, Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt, but soon discovers that the best job he can get is as a security guard at a Persian grocery store. Through a series of comically fateful events, Jimmy's naivetΓ© is exploited when a corrupt arms dealer (John Heard) hires him as a private investigator. Framed as a terrorist by the fear-mongering Kox News, Jimmy is unwittingly embroiled in a conspiracy to start the next world war. With the help of his seventh cousin Leila (Sheila Vand), Jimmy must save the day and avert the imminent war while keeping his overprotective mother in the dark.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Teetering precariously between satire and base humor, "Jimmy Vestvood" squanders opportunities for both. – Christopher Kompanek, Washington Post, May 12, 2016

Fresh: In the style of Borat, director Jonathan Kesselman and cowriters Jobrani and Amir Ohebsion use raunchy, puerile humor to jab at American prejudices toward the Middle East. – Leah Pickett, Chicago Reader, Sep 22, 2016

Funniest movie I've seen in a while!

Jobrani! You could do it better!!

Such a shame Maz. Maz you are a natural talent, but this film was not the best! Three star here, just to show some respect for yourself.

You should find a better writer. And for Gods sake avoid stupid and ridiculous things. Not all crazy things are funny!!

Wasting my time and money doesn't bother me, but your play and story of this film does.

Absolutely hilarious!!!
