I happen to be a big fan of Albert Brooks, I love his humor. If this movie happens to come to a theatre near you I would encourage anyone to see it. It's an independent film financed mostly by Brooks, but it may go to wide release? Although it wasn't a laugh riot, it was very funny in a sophisticated dry humor style that is Brooks. In it he plays himself who is asked by the US State Dept to go to Pakistan and find out what makes them laugh. So off he goes with visions of receiving a medal of Freedom and fear that he needs to write a five hndred page report on the subject. There is some very funny humor associated with Al Jezeera thrown in.
