wrong view of Saudi Arabia
22 September 2016 | by (saudi) – See all my reviews

i'm Saudi , and i'm really shocked from the way other societies think of us !!

first thing first we don't swim topless :D , second thing is we don't look like this ! sorry but there are better options than this actress :S she looks more like Indian and i would never tell that she is Saudi

the movie shows like if Jeddah is an old uncivilized city which is not true !!

people are way more sophisticated than how it seems to look in the movie

they didn't show the real side of the real Saudi families ! we are not living like Yousef barbarian way !!

and the elevator scene when there was a girl with to adults women looking at Tom in tough way like we never smile :D really we are not like this

and who said that there are not many female doctors in our country !! women in Saudi Arabia can be doctors, teachers , lawyers , designers , etc..

PS: there is no WAAY the our king would meet anyone for this simple project :s it is no easy to meet a king there are other people who do this meeting in behalf of the king
