Iraq, Parisian style
9 April 2009 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

Special Correspondents follows in the successful tradition of French farces, many of which have been adapted by Hollywood. This time we have a radio reporter who, together with a bumbling technician, are given a mission to go to Iraq to cover the ongoing conflict. However they manage to lose the air tickets & the expenses money and, faced with the prospect of ridicule & shame, they decide to hide in Paris & send reports from an "Iraq" created in a friend's house. This leads to many hilarious complications and situations. Special Correspondents uses a clever idea quite successfully, milking a generous quantity of laugh out loud moments from it. Performances are fine and surely it won't be long before a US remake appears.
