The embassy movie

Went to the gym to find it closed in preparation for tomorrow's tournament, so went to see Adel Imam's film in the club instead. Five pounds for his movie is all I was willing to pay for it. A very trivial movie, but I loved it, cracked in laughter most of the film. Imam is still funny, and I still hate his melodramatic and emotional scenes. Just stick to funny.

The movie is too trivial, and I like trivial stuff. Forget about the stupid analogy. The building, Palestine and the Israeli occupation. You had to ignore that part to enjoy the movie. The analogy I saw was not to the Israeli scene, but to the current domestic one. Those current protests against the regime, those emotional demonstrations, those "normal" people never connecting with those protestors though they're suffocating from the system, at times onlooking, at times participating for different reasons, and at times just not understanding what those protestors are all about.

The movie made fun of everyone and everything, and well deserved actually. Thought I was watching Jay Leno or something. I needed that simple fun. Made fun of those leftists, the protestors, the government and its police, the Israelis and their ambassador, alJazeera news channel, the radical Islamists, the always high Egyptians as well as the emotionally principled Egyptians. Cracked in laughter. The only person who was real was Imam's character. That simple human being. Just a simple guy who reminded me of a guy I know too well. As he says, he's neither a hero nor a traitor, just a guy going about his life facing those unexpected hurdles that he just wants to bypass.

The fun ended when he turned into a melodramatic protestor thinking he's falling in love with that rebellious Warda and planning to marry her.

Some movie characters are completely distroyed when they alter their personality by the end of the movie. It is pretty disappointing.

By the way, new name, fewer items on your sidebar..Is there a reason for these changes? Please don't say curiosity killed the cat!:)

I'm glad you've finally seen it Ya Mohamed. It seems that you 've liked it.
A good laugh is always OK. A "Cracked Laugh" is bonous. I've seen it back in August, & I said this about it. Fun and rated it three& 1/2 stars.

"The only person who was real was Imam's character"
I slightly dis agree. Even the Womanizer character which is as real as it gets in Imam's role turned away from it's real objective when the "Marriage" project started. Earlier in the Movie the Bazuka fired into his bedroom shattred the "Super Womanizer" ability in a very funny way...

I really wanted what an Ordinary Egyptian (that can blog) thought of this movie ;)
BTW: What is the difference between TE, AE, and OE ?? I was discussing this with a punch of Guys @ Al Ahwaa, & I claim that I almost figured out the answer with their help.
