      Audience Member Too stupid to get thru honestly 1.3 Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Mojgan I loved the movie. It shows the reality of Iranians and how they really feel about the west. I really enjoyed this movie and watched it already more than 3 times. This kind of work brings the nations together. The normal people who watch movie to spend time and need to realise Iranian's ate not what they show in media. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/23/22 Full Review Audience Member Just watched it on itunes, hilarious, Maz was amazing, highly recommend! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member It’s good movie to watch Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Silly satire with a few good gags & lots of naughty bathroom humor with lots of takedowns & outs of Fox News & the rest of fake news & alt right media & all their prejudices. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Frances H Not really that funny--with a very lame plot and script. And I like Maz Jobrani. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/17 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Leah Pickett Chicago Reader In the style of Borat, director Jonathan Kesselman and cowriters Jobrani and Amir Ohebsion use raunchy, puerile humor to jab at American prejudices toward the Middle East. Sep 22, 2016 Full Review Christopher Kompanek Washington Post Teetering precariously between satire and base humor, "Jimmy Vestvood" squanders opportunities for both. Rated: 1.5/4 May 12, 2016 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Maz Jobrani's clowning is a salve for our troubling times. Apr 18, 2016 Full Review Sherilyn Connelly SF Weekly Sheila Vand steals Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero as the vivacious Leila. After the smoldering, dark-eyed performance as the chador-wearing vampire in A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, it turns out a girl also has fantastic comedic chops. Jun 23, 2016 Full Review Avi Offer NYC Movie Guru Bold, raunchy and biting, Jimmy Vestvood is one of the most outrageously funny comedies in years. Rated: 8.95/10 May 19, 2016 Full Review Charles Ealy Austin American-Statesman The satire is well-balanced and, more often than not, the jokes go over like gangbusters. With its humorous cultural lens, this movie should be a career-changing moment for Jobrani. Apr 18, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
