Incredible Arabic
1 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know this is arcane, but why the writers have a Pakistani father and his Indian son speaking to each other in stilted, heavily South-Asian-accented Classical Arabic is beyond weird. This particular form of the language is rarely spoken in circumstances like a father and son conversing (as the awkwardness of their dialog shows) and never between people for whom Arabic is not a mother-tongue; that the writers would do it on the plotting assumption that Muslims must be Arabs is –well, I wouldn't have thought it so hard to make this plot aspect true for producers working in as cosmopolitan a town as LA, even by doing something as simple as asking the person who wrote the single sub-title about it. I was distracted when the sub-title appeared, but it begs the question, "who, watching the show, was meant to understand it?"

On the positive side, I thought Abed's film was good, if improbably precocious.
