Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World (1 stars)

Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World image“Funnyman Albert Brooks plays a comedian sent by the U.S. State Department to India and Pakistan to find out exactly what makes Muslims laugh — all with an eye toward helping everyone to get along better in the post-Sept. 11 world. Directed and written by Brooks, this smart, thoughtful and, yes, funny film essentially bypasses religion, instead focusing on where people find humor, regardless of culture or beliefs.”

Geoff’s Comments: Painful. Just painful. I really have enjoyed many of his movies, but this was completely lame. Perhaps it takes being in the right frame of mind, but I’m not up to trying to give it a 2nd chance.
