Let me start with this hilarious imdb.com trivia:
"According to [the director], Barry, the Jihadist group leader, was based on a former BNP member who in an attempt to out-knowledge the Asian youths he regularly assaulted, studied the Qur'an and as a result "accidentally converted himself" and became a Muslim."
That's the premise: four bumbling imbeciles (three Pakistani, one British) start a terrorist cell in London and plan to radicalize the Muslim movement in the UK. The movies narrates several of their idiotic foiled terrorist attempts, which are exaggerations of real events (e.g. people blowing themselves up by mistake), offering the film's core situation comedy. But the overall message, is that the terrorist threat is not as dire as we've been told. I'm giving this a Mojo, just because you'll definitely take a side either for or against that message, and be discussing it with whomever you watch it with.
