Though entertaining, Spurlock's lighthearted approach doesn't work as well here.

Although he makes an amusing comic foil, Spurlock is ill-equipped to either evaluate or report on Middle East foreign policy. His methodology is disturbingly casual and conclusions woefully simplistic.

A film so self-centered that even the director's most dedicated stalkers might find it a bit too narcissistic.
