Movie Info

The Muslims Are Coming! is a comedy documentary which follows a band of Muslim-American comedians as they visit big cities, small towns, rural villages, and everything in between to combat Islamophobia! These comedians not only perform standup at each tour stop but create ridiculous interventions in unsuspecting town squares, like the ol' classic, "Ask a Muslim Booth" and "Name That Religion." Throughout the film, comedy icons like The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, David Cross, Janeane Garofalo, Colin Quinn, Lewis Black, Aasif Mandvi and media heavy weights like Rachel Maddow, Russell Simmons, Soledad O'Brien, Ali Velshi and Congressman Keith Ellison comment on the power of comedy and the political scope of bigotry. The film is truly about freedom of religion in America for people all faiths. And rest assured, you've never laughed this hard at a Muslim! (c) Official Site

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.

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.
