new topic,but...
3 July 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

adel imam is coming back with a new idea about the relation between Egypt and israel putting the idea in a nice frame work of a story,interesting topic and interesting idea,but the thing that i don't understand is why does he always put these scenes in his movies?i mean these sexual appealing shots in the beginning was not a necessary as far as I'm concerned.and again he has to link sex to every single topic he discusses to get a laugh.he has been always like that since his movies in the 70s and now he is still doing the same thing.i think its about time now that he should stop doing this because he has his big name now and he does not need to do this to make people laugh.back to the movies i think it was a good trail to expose how the Egyptian feel about any Israeli presence in Egypt.but i didn't like the young hot good looking girl joining and actually leading the protests.i think this does not happen in real life.together with the whole Communism idea was out of place.and again he has to put some scenes in any movies to pick on the Islamic groups.i think this scene was also out of place and didn't serve the main idea he was trying to discuss
