Hilarious, Heartfelt, and Endearing
24 June 2011 | by WhySoSyrianSee all my reviews

Thank you Ahmed and company for creating such an amazing, endearing, honest, heartfelt, thought provoking and FUNNY documentary! I recommend this to people from all walks of life because when you leave this movie you will have a sense of compassion for yourself, friends, family, neighbor and your fellow Arab/Muslim. With this documentary you will see the Middle Eastern people as people, like you and me, living and surviving and most of all laughing and loving.

The director has a heart-felt desire to see many of the conflicts of everyday middle eastern life resolved. He argues that comedy can be used to lighten the "heaviness" of these issues, and allow honest and frank discussion to be engaged in the pacification of the middle east.

Your favorite Syrian and Venezuelan couple.
