A good movie

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, while watching this flick, I kept thinking 'how the hell did they got away with this?'. I mean, it's not that I was shocked or that I thought that it was disrespectful but it had more to do with the fact thay some comedians or cartoonists might get some actual death threats if they make fun of Mohamed or the Islam in general. Anyway, with this movie, not only did they make fun of the Muslim terrorists, they went completely all the way and delivered one of the darkest comedies I have ever seen. In fact, they went so over-the-top that it became rather difficult to take the whole thing really seriously and I wonder if a slightly more realistic approach wouldn't have been more effective. Another thing that slightly bothered me was the fact that the whole thing was just so random. Finally, these 5 guys were all so pathetic and stupid that it was rather difficult to really care about them. Still, the damned thing was sometimes so hilarious and you have to give some credits for the makers to dare deliver something so bold about such a sensitive subject. To conclude, even though it wasn't a complete home-run, it was still a really solid comedy and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
