Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This well-intentioned "docu-comedy" (as the filmmakers label it in publicity notes) is not very funny.
Fresh: Along the way, "The Muslims Are Coming!" addresses a myriad of issues within the Islamic community, including gender, race and religion.
Fresh: This slight but entertaining documentary scores laughs along with its sociological points.
Rotten: It's an inarguably noble undertaking, one that's unfortunately timely, but the film often feels like a profane PSA.
this comedy road movie is hilarious, important, and unexpectedly heartwarming!
Intelligent and Hillarious
An intelligent and hilarious look at religious and other stereotypes. It's comedy for smart people!
I laughed, cliche but true, I cried
The Muslims Are Coming! was funny throughout and then it hits you in the gut with some real emotion. I had no idea what to expect and it had way more depth than I had anticipated. I also didn't expect to see such hardcore comedy - a lot of the comics weren't doing the polite "we're good ethnic people" comedy - they were doing real hard-hitting stuff. Plus the Jon Stewart, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo combination is sort of killer.
