It's a sort of propaganda movie used for political reasons. This movie reminds of the 70s till 90s' ones which depicted USSR as a demonic country. These kinds of movies represent US foreign policy towards hostile countries such as Iran. A quick summary; Our hero wins a lottery and comes to America with his mother. He wants to be a Private Eye like his idol, Steve McQueen, but is quickly mistaken for a jihadist. Meanwhile, he is hired by a U.S. Senator as a bait for a payoff to an enemy agent for weapons to a foreign country to start a war. Got it so far? Doesn't matter - confusion is part of the fun, so just go with our hero (Maz Jobrani), who is brilliantly funny in a way that Sasha Baron Cohen ("Borat") tries to be. Jobrani, however, succeeds and is funnier. Sound like a good movie? Too bad, it's already gone from the NYC area. It's a stupid way of depicting great civilization through trivial means.
