100
A film that doesn't let go from the very first moment.
75
It's hardly a must-see laugh riot, but it is a good chuckle, and it does its job well.
70
It has the potential to be culturally bridging in its way, and that makes looking for Muslim comedy in the Western world worthwhile.

The point of "the official Muslim comedy tour" is that these guys are ordinary Americans just like you and me. Unfortunately, that extends to a lot of the jokes.

Chicago Reader
Mostly the three comics stick to the Bill Cosby formula, dispensing with racial anger in favor of good-natured and family- and relationship-based crossover material.

Variety
This amusing rather than laugh-out-loud funny project is best suited to smallscreen exposure.

Village Voice
It's obvious that Amer and Usman labor under the burden of making humor at once insider-cool and outsider-friendly. And it's hard to finesse "offensive" from a defensive crouch.

The A.V. Club
There's little here that's especially cage-rattling or side-splitting. Ultimately, Allah only made these guys mildly likable.
50
The title doesn't lie. These guys know how to tell a joke, often at the expense of their customs, religious holidays, families and themselves.

Allah made me funny - not.
