This film is crass, stupid, offensive, childish, crude, and very very funny. It is if Team America and There is Something About Mary both got drunk, ended up in bed together and this is their brat of a kid out in the streets of New York running wild.
There is something here to offend everyone, but it is especially offensive to anyone from the Middle East or Muslim.

A guilty pleasure.
