Terrible, not even offensive, jut unfunny. All the characters are aggressive idiots, except the idealised nurse wife character and the son of the gang leader. If this is comedy why are there no jokes? If this is satire, why is there no unexpected extremity of depiction, or anything telling us anything about terrorists, or skewering our prejudices? Many of the audience laughed which was the funniest thing. So peculiar that this film, with one idea (here are some idiotic incompetent terrorists) should attract anyone to see it.
