Four Lions is a ridiculous stupid movie. I am not talking about the movie per se (the plot actually had promise but the execution is lacking) but the characters in it. Yes it does a few laugh out loud moments and especially the Urdu parts made me roll on the floor laughing (that is because I actually understood the dialogue and didn't have to rely on the translation which took the essence out of it). But these are far and long between. The dark humour is good and the dialogues witty, which is just about enough to keep one interested in this affair.
