Four Lions

Jews invented spark plugs to control global traffic.

It takes serious guts and talent to make “the Dad’s Army side of terrorism” actually work.

I haven’t seen this since it came out, when it absolutely brought the house down in the cinema. Most of the laughs come through novelty and surprise, so perhaps it’s not quite as funny on second viewing. That’s fine since it allows the satire to bubble to the top, along with giving extra room for more emotional attachment to the characters.
