A look at Albert Brooks' new comedy - LOOKING FOR COMEDY IN THE MUSLIM WORLD!

Hey folks, Harry here... Well - the "Untitled Albert Brooks Project (2005)" well - we got a title. LOOKING FOR COMEDY IN THE MUSLIM WORLD. Is there any wonder that this has taken Albert a while. This is a moderately sensitive subject matter - and I've no idea how this film will be accepted by the audience, no matter its religious preference, but for comedy - it is definitely a fertile ground. I know many Muslims that have fantastic senses of humor and would welcome a comedy like this - but I also know many folks that right now don't see anything funny in the current situation. To me, that's why it's so perfect for hilarity. Look how great DR STRANGELOVE was - and at the time it came out, that was the very very really real reality facing the world. It doesn't sound like the comedy is at the expense of the Muslim world - but more of the perception of the Muslim World by an American citizen as well as the red tape in our goverment. Can't wait to see this one!

Howdy, long time listener

I just went to see Albert Brooks' new movie Wed. night at the Archlight in LA. I am a big fan so I was kind of geeking out about seeing it in advance. It's so damn long in between his movies that I go into starvation mode and have to keep watching the old ones on DVD. By the way, does anyone know if Modern Romance is EVER coming out? What the hell?!

Anyway, so I go to the screening and I'm all excited cause I think the last one of these I actually went to was for Beethoven 2 when I first moved to LA and didn't know any better and was just excited to see a free anything, and this time there?s the promise not only of an actually decent movie but an Albert Brooks movie!!!

Anyway, I don't want to give too much away other than to say that the movie is called, "Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World" which I guess does reveal something of the plot but it's the movie title so I don't think I am giving anything away. The cast is really good too but they aren't big names. His movies usually aren't about movie stars but this one might even be more under the radar. I recognized John Carroll Lynch (Gothika, Carnivale) and Jon Tenney (who's done a bunch of TV stuff - and was married to mega hottie Teri Hatcher) but the lead girl I didn't know. She is really cute though (possible future mega hottie).

Anyway, the movie takes place mostly in India, Albert (who is playing himself) gets sent on a real life mission, by the government, to find out what make the Muslims laugh. It is hard to tell if most of the actors are actually Indian or just playing Indian characters but I guess that tells you how good the over all quality of the acting is. John Lynch and Jon Tenney play secret service types who are sent with Albert to help him write a 500 page report. They end up thwarting him every step of the way with all their bureaucracy and red tape. They even forget to get him a visa to Pakistan and have to sneak him over the border illegally. The lead actress is a beautiful young girl, as I said, who is hired to assist Albert in India gathering information for the report. There is no real love story between them but you get the definite feeling that her character may secretly be in love with him. And Albert, true to his usual style, is completely oblivious.

So I don't want to tell too much cause the plot unfolds perfectly and has a nice revelations all along the way. But the movie is so funny, maybe his best - dare I say it. There are a million lines that I am still laughing about. And it's smart. And the acting is so good, and the writing is so funny and sharp and actually has a pretty cool liberal bent. It's just a huge pleasure to see one of my favorite filmmakers still at the top of his game.

    Harry, if you didn't know about this already...

    by PacinoHatersGoHo

    Listen DocFalken, I understand the position you're in, being the web-designer and all that, but I ask you to consider a few things before you pull the plug on The Hideen Bizarro AICN Page (http://www.aintitcool.com/tb_display.cgi?id=86845): If you read the posts in said Page, then you will notice that despite the fact that we have no main topic, let alone an actual link from the main page headlines, we have succeeded in forming a stimulating discussion that's fully related to films, despite my own meager attempts to steer it away towards politics and religion. Left to their own devices, the TalkBackers have proven that they can be sensible, considerate and eloquent people, voicing their own opinions without popping the proverbial vein in the forehead. Before you destroy this brief yet beautiful even that began at http://www.aintitcool.com/tb_display.cgi?id=86845, I implore you to consider leaving us as we were: happy. Let us keep our page, our Bizarro AICN, and if it's not too much trouble how about giving us a name so that we may be recognized among the other content on this site. We have projected our voices, now we simply want to be recognized and accepted. I thank you for your efforts, DocFalken. Sincerely, Pacino. http://www.aintitcool.com/tb_display.cgi?id=86845

I saw him at the Soho theatre in London, after a fantastic recorded-for-TV performance impressed me... very funny guy. I think he has a website.

    Laugh til it hurts.

    by Kilroy

    I love Albert Brooks and this is one fucking great idea for a movie. Damn, this man has some balls. And does anyone remember when comedy had to do with things that mattered? Not about safe stuff like live-at-home-dads and shit like that but real stuff. Stuff that made people uncomfortable. Stuff that got guys like Lenny Bruce arrested. Go Albert Brooks! Go and dare to be honest. Humor is honesty and society is so nervous about the truth that the only way to digest it is to nervously laugh at it. I've heard the anger now I want to laugh. Thank you for suggesting the concept of humor in the times of terror. Thank you for wishing the possibility of some lightness. God help us all if we can't laugh at ourselves. Mr. Brooks is what we need right now - not another angry guy with a cause.

    "Please do not offer my god a peanut"

    by keepcoolbutcare

    any man who was asked to do all of the opening monologues for the first season of SNL deserves some serious comedy respect. One question though...why set it in India? I know there are some Muslims in India, but the majority of the population is Hindu. ("Be they Christian, Jew, or...miscellaneous." "Hindu, there are 700 million of us" "Oh, that's super.") I get it if he was going to Pakistan by way of India but wouldn't you have more of hot button type of movie if it was set in the middle east? Expecting the best out of Albert. (Hell Kubrick of all people loved his work)

    Q:Why India? A: Why India.

    by Shan

    Well, just a guess here but even though Muslims are a minority in India, I believe there are more Muslims in India than all of Pakistan. So, ie there is a lot of Muslims in India. So, if you want to write a film about Muslims, you could pick many worse places. Did anyone notice how this talkback appeared - disappeared into the "Next" realm and reappeared again? Freaky happenings afoot ...

    People should do this more

    by evergreen

    I wish people would make more of this controversial subject. As someone who got caught up in the London bombs last thursday and has spent much of the last few days watching people agaonise over what it means for muslims in Britain, I can say that laughter can be a great way to put a different perspective on a situation. Sorry to be sombre, but it's inevitably going to be an issue when discussing this film's subject matter, and it's remembrace day for the bombing here in London today - and pretty much the whole country is haveing a two minute silence in exactly one hour. So, join in if you can, and spend a couple of minutes thinking about how we can stop it happening again.

    Why hasn't anyone ever made a film from the Koran? The story of mohammed or something? maybe if everyone else had a bit more understanding of their Faith we wouldn't have so many Xenophobes in the world and this film (the Albert Brooks one) wouldn't seem even slightly controversial.

    by PacinoHatersGoHo

    Muslims in general are quite sensitive to iconic depictions of their religious figures, which is why you generally won't find pictorial depictions of Muhammad. Nevertheless, the "story" of the Qura'an has never been depicted, as the words themselves are considered to be coming from God, and are themselves holy. The story of Muhammad, however, has been made into a film, and there is an Arabic and English (with Anthony Quinn) version of the same story. It's called The Message.

    ...off the few crazy nuts and gives a voice to the silent majority in any population has to be a good thing. We have enough nutcases in the UK and US - Timothy McVeigh, the Unibomber, Irish terrorists - imagine if they were the only people anyone ever saw on TV in the rest of the world. I get sick of Christians being surprised to hear that Muslims worship the same God. A big dose of balanced education all round would be great - and movies/comedy are often an effective medium for info/education.

    An Almighty Rant......Reason:Latte Overload

    by The True Priapic

    Y&#39;know,I tend not to be in the slightest religious but tend to believe myself to at least be.....<gag>..spiritual.Most of the Christians,Muslims etc I have personally met tend to fall in to 2 groups...selfish,brutal,insufferably arrogant and blinkered........or.......open,sweet,intelligent and compassionate.I have,I must say...IN MY EXPERIENCE...found that the selfish lot outweigh the latter.......A nice guy I knew at school since my childhood and I met up after not seeing each other for a while,I&#39;d heard he&#39;d become a God-botherer but when we met we drank loads of ale,got happilly pissed and wandered home..nary a word of God,until as we were to go our separate ways he said "Priapic,you&#39;ve got to let Jesus into your heart."Now I don&#39;t mind this,it wasn&#39;t forced and wasn&#39;t nasty but..no ta..................And an opposite example,and this is frighteningly true(and sounds like I&#39;m getting on a bandwagon but this happened sept&#39;98 to Jan&#39;99..).I was at Uni in London and the flat I had to share in Halls of residence I was,apart from a Finish lad who left quickly,the only white non-muslim.Now every fucking night these little lads,first time away from home and all,were the loudest little cunts born.They&#39;d bring round what felt like fifty of their mates and just shouted out windows to white people,usually women,"White sluts".Extremely dangerous on the Holloway road,and obviously in that backward way,thought they were safe as they were 2 stories up.It got too much and I&#39;d purposely walk in to the kitchen to get orange while they were acting like the braying hyenas they so were,and it&#39;d stop."Hi,Priapic.","How&#39;r ya doin,Priapic."..Little boys,lost....It got worse,I luckily got a flat downstairs where my mates were as a muslim girl wanted to move away from them(see ,two sides to every experience).When I told them I was moving out and a girl was moving in,they couldn&#39;t deal with it.I honestly thought 1 of them was going to have a breakdown.Anyway as I was leaving this FAT CUNT called Emi moved in to the Finish lads room and this cunt!!!this cunt!!..started preaching how this country was shit(he had a north london accent,too!)and any un-muslim type should be wiped out.Again I&#39;d hear all this through the piss thin walls and AGAIN..I&#39;d go get orange and Emi would be like ..."Hi,Priapic.How&#39;s the studying!"..CUNTS!It got worse,before I moved the little lad next door,Malcolm wanted to have his first drink and I was to aid him in finding a nice red wine.I thought "trouble" so pointed him toward a really piss weak wine.Later that night I heard the bottle fly out the window and he started shouting "Freedom!" as he&#39;d been watching Braveheart?!?Next thing I know Emi was persuading him not to go out,and as I listened it was cos he&#39;d earlier told Malcolm that he had rocket launchers and guns in a garage close by and wanted to blow up the white-bastards brothel down the road!!!Malcolm had got so drunk he wanted to do it..bet that cunt Emi regretted his bullshit then,cunt.............It got better,I moved out.It was everything I&#39;d originally wanted from Uni..great times,meeting lots of different open-minded people from different walks of life,girls,beer,beer......girls,beer,beer...beer.................and I got invited to an old mates wedding reception at Holborn one night.When I returned trouble was in the air,the guys in my old flat had been shouting out the window at white chicks again and using the vid-phone(which conceals id)to further insult whites.There was a fucking GANG of people outside my old flats door..A FUCKING LYNCH MOB...gotta say,I went and knocked the door.."I used to live here,let me see whats going on.Malcolm?Malcolm?" I got in and the lot of them were hiding like children in a corner together.I&#39;ll never forget the looks on their faces..genuine fear...Emi had barricaded himself in the room.Fuck &#39;em,I remember thinking..not my prob.Everyone calmed down after that.But,this is a direct example of what&#39;s wrong....the inherent hypocrital nature of the zealot..................Finsbury Park was only up the road and those cunts had a celebration in the street after Set.11th....Unbelievable.................Anyway,is Kirsten Dunst getting her knockers out on Marie Antoinette?

    Better not promote this one in The Netherlands...

    by DutchFudge

    Better stay clear of The Netherlands with this one, Albert, cause Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh also made a little movie - called Submission - that the Muslim-community over here didn&#39;t really appreciate. In fact, last november, while cycling to his work, Theo was gunned down and subsequently stabbed multiple times with a butcher&#39;s knife, whereafter his throat was slit from ear to ear by a Muslim fanatic called Mohammed Bouyeri. After the murder (which took place on a reasonably crowded street in Amsterdam, by the way), Mohammed pinned the knife in Theo&#39;s dead body together with a note, that threatened anyone who ever &#39;insulted Allah&#39; in any way. Thanks to our liberal government and judicial system, Mohammed will probably be out of jail in a couple of years. This country sucks.

    by classyfredblassy

    Well, maybe a thousand years agao that was true. Let&#39;s look at the past 50 -100 years or so. The fact is the others grow and adapt. Islam hasn&#39;t done a very good job of that. Hence the shitty economies and living condition. You know things are bad when the leader of a larger Muslim country like Malaysia says "jews are to blame for all the problems in the world" at a Asian Pacific conference. Mr.Brooks better watch his back, No matter how good the intention in his film is. Hear are some chilly words from Van Gogh murderer:"I take complete responsibility for my actions. I acted purely in the name of my religion," he told the court in Amsterdam. "I can assure you that one day, should I be set free, I would do exactly the same, exactly the same," he added.

    PASSION OF THE CHRIST

    by Roboteer

    Yeah, THAT might make Muslims laugh. Interesting review until .... "it had a cool liberal bent". It&#39;s the cool liberal bent of political correctness that keeps us from examining why mainstream Islam refuses to issue a Fatwah or even mild condemnation on all the atrocities being committed worldwide in its name. Islam doesn&#39;t want to be identified with fascist murderers? Then how about not supporting them with deafening silence and start excommunicating them. Nearly every major conflict in the world today has at its source Muslims who can&#39;t get along with their neighbors. But we don&#39;t want to hurt their feelings by calling the Brit bombers terrorists. I&#39;d like to see a big screen honest documentary on radical Islam instead of this flick. Not to understand them, but to get our heads out of the liberal media sand and on the road to a final solution. No, not killing them all and letting Allah sort them out, but ending the madras&#39; indoctrination of hate and the virulent lies spread by Al Gazeera and the West&#39;s own media which often seems to hate its free societies more than the terrorists.

    Sounds interesting

    Look at East is East, a British movie playing on the Pakistani Muslim ideals in England. It was very well recieved and caused no problems, I dont think there will be a problem with this movie either it sounds great though. As for people like Vikingkitty, just ignore him. Clearly this guys is a loser who loves getting attention(probably no friends, no attention) by making statements he knows will provoke outrage. He may think being a biggot and racist is funny, so let him. Let us know these kind of people can act like this due to the anonymous nature of the net, but in reality they would never have the nerve to spew any of this nonsense.

    Are you seriously going to start saying that Muslims have started the most historical conflicts? Are you uneducated. Britain is historically one the most ruthless most imperialistic countries in history. Nothing can compare to the mass killings Christians have dealt throughout history. My point is its fucking stupid to make blanket statements blaming all faults on one large and diverse minority. And no one is not calling the london bombers terrorists. I think everyone is labelling them the terrorists that they are, so thats utter BS.
