Storyline

When Morgan Spurlock and his wife find out they are expecting a child in an unsafe world that faces multiple terrorist and environmental threats, Morgan decides to track down the world's most wanted and dangerous terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, undergoes self-defense training, takes all required medical shots, and sets out to travel to Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Afghanistan, Pakistan amongst others to try and locate the man who has managed to elude the American army for nearly a decade. His fears, generated due to biased media coverage that Muslims and Arabs are hostile, are laid to rest when he does encounter friendly, and quite refreshingly well educated, hospitable, politically matured men and women, who are well aware of America's faulty 'foreign policy', and do not subscribe to Jihad nor to the Taliban nor Osama's terror-tactics. But he does encounter some hostility, quite ironically, in two of America's allies -- Israel and Saudi Arabia -- and it is on the soil of Pakistan -- ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Another Thought-Provoking, But Still Not-Too-Serious Documentary From Morgan Spurlock
6 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What first comes to mind when you hear you're going to a movie titled "Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?"? An odd title for a quality film. I saw an advanced screening for market research purposes, and the theater was full. In a similar way to Michael Moore (but far less polarizing), Morgan Spurlock is able to make his point and maintain a great sense of humor. He travels to all major regions of the Middle East- including Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and Afghanistan- on his quest to find Osama. Along the way, we meet many middle-easterners: regular citizens, terrorists' siblings, and islamist extremists. To see the sentiment of these people up close and personal is quite amazing, and Spurlock must be truly admired for his courage to venture into these dangerous territories.

I have gotten this far but have failed to mention the humor in it. I will say this much: You will get at least 4-5 belly laughs, and countless chuckles along the way.

It is a great follow-up to "Super Size Me" and shows that he can tackle the more political/difficult issues, but still keep that signature Spurlock smile.

GO SEE IT!
