Great Comedy! Extremely Underrated!!
15 September 2016 | by WatchAndSmileSee all my reviews

Slightly reminded me of Borat movies,but with more class and no gross acts... Which makes this OK for kids too.

I am not Iranian,but I really enjoyed this movie. I think the fact I have some Iranian friends did help to make this movie funnier as I knew a lot about Iranian families.

The joke about chandeliers was one of them :)

There are a lot of gross and not funny comedies these days and this movie was a breath of fresh air. I wish they will make more! All actors were funny and did a good job playing their roles.

A solid 7/10
