Aroview: With his first baby on the way, SUPER SIZE ME’s Morgan Spurlock decides to go off in search of the world’s most wanted criminal, learning more about Middle Eastern culture and attitudes to terrorism along the way.
Wending his way through regions known or suspected to have harboured Bin Laden, Spurlock assumes a socially conscious ‘man on the street’ stance that aims to humanise Middle Easterners, albeit on the bite-sized scale of a celebrity TV travelogue. Despite a glib (and patronising) tendency to reduce thorny ideological conflicts to trite appeals for cross-cultural unification, self-indulgent Spurlock’s light-hearted approach to politics and people makes for affable, if surface-scratching viewing.

3 stars (Good Enough) An interesting and funny romp through the middle East with Spurlock - as usual, threatening to overdo things, but usually reeling it back in long enough to remind us he's serious about his mission.~Tom H
