Tere Bin Laden - External Reviews

wogma rating: Buy the DVD already (?)
quick review:

Tere Bin Laden is a subtle slapstick, if such an oxymoron exists. You'll miss out on loads of fun if you miss this one. When you are helpless and can do zilch, the least you can do is present a laughable solution to a hopeless situation.
