The Muslims Are Coming Reviews

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.

Supporting commentary comes from the likes of Jon Stewart, Lewis Black, and Rachel Maddow, but the real stars, rightly so, are Farsad and Obeidallah.

It's all very admirable, but you may find yourself nodding in agreement more than doubled with laughter.

This slight but entertaining documentary scores laughs along with its sociological points.

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.

This well-intentioned "docu-comedy" (as the filmmakers label it in publicity notes) is not very funny.

For better and for worse, this feels less like a feature film than a stretched-out Daily Show segment.

Viewers outside the tristate area may have their minds blown. The rest of us may be only mildly amused.

Much of the stand-up material caught on camera has a ring of familiarity and settles for rehashing ethnic and religious stereotypes in new ways. But the best of it provides a perspective, and a punch, transcending the same old punch lines.

It's an inarguably noble undertaking, one that's unfortunately timely, but the film often feels like a profane PSA.

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.

Lobbing zingers at Islamophobes does not illuminate Islam.

An amusing and timely movie, even if it's basically a Daily Show sketch writ large.

Some of the stand-up material is funny, but the interaction with audience members is priceless.

Along the way, "The Muslims Are Coming!" addresses a myriad of issues within the Islamic community, including gender, race and religion.
