This film is a wonderful and refreshing comedy. It portrays the typical funny, low class, and stupid in an over-exaggerated way person in Turkey that fits the stereotype of the eastern European low class person as well. Undoubtedly, you will have a much greater laugh if you are a native speaker since Recep Ivedik's use of language is so brutal and simple, not in a too vulgar way which is the thing that makes you laugh the most throughout the comedy scenes. His personality and arrogance are portrayed very well as well and you successfully get the idea of what type of person Recep is. I didn't get bored at any point of the movie and found myself laughing out loud on several occasions which usually happens rarely. Would not recommend to American audience though.
