Mar 23, 2010"Where in the World is Osama bin Laden?" is an entertaining documentary that starts with Morgan Spurlock learning he is about to become a father for the first time. Fearing for the safety of his future offspring in such a cruel world and moving to Idaho apparently not being an option, he decides to be proactive and seek out the prime source of anxiety in the world today, Osama bin Laden. The training for Spurlock's journey to potentially hazardous countries takes care of any weight he gained during "Super Size Me"(which I have not seen, by the way) and proves that the scariest words in the English language are "If there is anything I have learned from watching action movies." In the process of his odyssey, he travels to Egypt, Morocco, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Pakistan, talking with common people and experts alike. The movie is not terribly insightful, however, even though I agree with a lot of what Spurlock has to say. And I am left wondering how exactly he got permission to not only enter Saudi Arabia, but also to apparently freely film there. In the end, Spurlock has his last great adventure before having to grow up and become a father.(He gets to fire a rocket launcher which is cool and not as scary as it sounds.) At the same time, he is also asking the world to grow up and get over itself, so his children and the children of the world can live in peace together.Walter M Super Reviewer

Jan 16, 2010Documentarian Morgan Spurlock travels to the Middle East post 9/11 in search of answers. It is informative but ultimately doesn't tell us anything that we didn't already know.Marcus W Super Reviewer
