Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film follows a group of Muslim-American comedians on a stand-up-and-public-relations tour who try to win over those skeptical of Muslims, one audience at a time."
‑ Nick A. Zaino III, Boston Globe
"This well-intentioned "docu-comedy" (as the filmmakers label it in publicity notes) is not very funny."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"Supporting commentary comes from the likes of Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, and Rachel Maddow, but the real stars, rightly so, are Farsad and Obeidallah."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
"An amusing and timely movie, even if it's basically a Daily Show sketch writ large."
‑ Alonso Duralde, Linoleum Knife
"This slight but entertaining documentary scores laughs along with its sociological points."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"For better and for worse, this feels less like a feature film than a stretched-out Daily Show segment."
‑ Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader
"It's all very admirable, but you may find yourself nodding in agreement more than doubled with laughter."
‑ Brian Miller, Seattle Weekly
"The comedy routines are so-so (though the falling-in-the-aisles reaction shots tell another story) and the comics' patchwork odyssey often derails into irrelevancies."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Viewers outside the tristate area may have their minds blown. The rest of us may be only mildly amused."
‑ Jordan Hoffman, New York Daily News
"Despite their supposedly good intentions, the comedian-filmmakers broach the doc's central subject with crass and offensive standup routines that wouldn't be out of place on the Blue Collar Comedy Tour."
‑ Dean Essner, Slant Magazine
