Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World

2005 PG-13

Funnyman Albert Brooks plays a comedian sent by the U.S. State Department to India and Pakistan to find out exactly what makes Muslims laugh -- all with an eye toward helping everyone get along better in the post-September 11 world. Directed and written by Brooks, this smart, thoughtful film essentially bypasses religion, instead focusing on where people find humor, regardless of culture or beliefs.
