    The movie's fun, a lot of it having nothing to do with its specific subject.

    The hint at disagreement among the performers about who can and cannot call themselves Muslim is particularly provocative — a debate that would have been better off played out on-screen rather than summarized after the fact.

    The Muslims Are Coming! is at its best when the comedians talk to real people outside the controlled environment of a stage.

    Muslim comics are correct about not needing to defend their faith in post-9/11 America. Their patriotism is not the point. I just wish they told better jokes.

    I kept expecting Sacha Baron Cohen to traipse onto the scene. Alas, he doesn’t.

    One part stand-up comedy concert film (think Kings of Comedy) to two parts social outreach activism, documentary The Muslims Are Coming! works somewhat better as the latter than the former.

    This well-intentioned “docu-comedy” (as the filmmakers label it in publicity notes) is not very funny.
