Four Lions


Got a lot of praise as being a satire on the foolishness of religious fanaticism, where four Muslim idiots from London decide to become suicide bombers. They are naïve and stupid. I just couldn’t get the joke, though. I read about how it unfolded after I stopped watching it, and the only thing I could see that was amusing was that they did manage to off themselves. The humor was spoiled, though, because they took some real human beings with them. If only they’d managed to blow off their own arms, legs, and dicks, and survived … well, I would have been rolling in the aisles.
