"No topic is too sacred" - a review by pearly

In this short comedy, nothing is sacred. It seems that humour can be taken from anything, and this short film, a comedy about two suicide bombers on their "day of glory" sets out to show this. While it's at it, it also makes a point that perhaps religion isn't everything, though I'm not sure whether this would actually hold true in reality.

Jihad is an interesting little what-if, and it did get the crowd laughing. As it hurtled to its inevitable end, it was clear that this film was perfect as a short - any more would have been too much. As it was though, not bad. Not bad at all.

pearly gives this movie 7 out of 10.

If I won 10 Best Supporting Actress Oscars but Jack Palance accidentally read out Marisa Tomei's name when I won 4 of those Best Supporting Actress Oscars, how many Best Supporting Actress Oscars did I actually take home?
