I haven't had so much fun in ages. (http://www.google.co.ma/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=operation%20casablanca&source=web&cd=5&ved=0CEEQFjAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imdb.com%2Ftitle%2Ftt1327808% 2F&ei=smT2TriNG8TLhAfo5sGvAQ&usg=AFQjCNHjDtBkfD4_fz7HhMq69iN6MlpDDw&sig2=szZ1svKQk_3gUv0uXlvMBw) Remember Four Lions (http://www.google.co.ma/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=four%20lions&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCcQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imdb.com%2Ftitle%2Ftt1341167% 2F&ei=CGX2TsC8FcnIhAf51p2hAQ&usg=AFQjCNEx4CfsaeA90hK_SJHM9rrbnDoPlA&sig2=IjG5-Y6CvqxQgcHSF-dVkA)? The concept is similar. There's this everyman Moroccan illegal immigrant, who is miserable. How miserable is he? He gets himself called "Juanito del Salvador" because it's easier to get jobs that way, and his boss sticks him into the cold room in a cardboard box so the labour inspector doesn't spot him, that's how miserable he is. For years he has tried to get himself forgotten, to be as discrete and low-profile as possible. For being at the wrong place and at the wrong time, he was mistaken for terrorist and arrested until Aduin flew in to blow **** up until they find out it wasn't really him... but their target dies, and now he's got to play the role of the dead terrorist in the rescue operation, or end up as one more dead Arab floating in the Mediterranean... Hilarity ensues, and in the process he grows a pair and saves the President of the United States of America.

Yes, it is a ver dark black comedy with a thick and complicated plot, why do you ask? But really, there's practically no slapstick, it's more along the lines of The Mouse That Roared (http://www.google.co.ma/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=the%20mouse%20that%20roared&source=web&cd=2&sqi=2&ved=0CDUQFjAB&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imdb.com%2Ftitle%2Ftt0053084% 2F&ei=tmb2Tq-EAo2FhQees-TQAQ&usg=AFQjCNG01Khtz8sSqlKIc0xebZIyQ3sBBg&sig2=7XCeI-21lvOVTKEU4SH5bw) or Doctor Strangelove (http://www.google.co.ma/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=doctor%20strangelove&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imdb.com%2Ftitle%2Ftt0057012% 2F&ei=1Gb2TqPoNdKBhQfz5eCeAQ&usg=AFQjCNGZE43LL5BQwRhw1wbWNRdkE_A0cA&sig2=Bmx2ySPM00Jgz3nnpNjzgQ) than, say, an Adam Sandler or Ben Stiller comedy.
