Spurlock goes from McDonald's to Terrorism and with it a big leap from entertaining to serious. Where In The World's trailer and poster would have you believe that it's going to be just like Super Size Me. Filled with humor and an entertaining look at things. Indeed, Where In The World does start off with some humor. Watching an animated Spurlock fight Osama in a video game like environment while a theme song based on the title plays in the background is funny for about a second. Thankfully, the humor and animation go away after the first 20 minutes. The movie then switches to being serious.
Where In The World isn't really about finding Osama and Spurlock knows that. I think he used it as a gimmick to get the film made and I'm sure he didn't have a problem getting financing for a documentary with that kind of title. Spurlock is more interested in the people of the middle east. Getting to talk to the people that Osama has affected in Osama's own turf. Spurlock asks a lot of basic questions but gets revealing and interesting answers from the people. Spurlock also doesn't use a lot of gimmicks like he did in Super Size Me, except for the ending of the film, which is really cheesy. Spurlock also goes through the film looking like a crazed mountain man and I'm not sure why.
Where In The World doesn't really tell us anything that we don't already know about the middle east but does show some revealing sides about the people that a lot of Americans think are the enemies when they are anything but. Where In The World would be a great film to show to a high school class that is just getting to know what the middle east is and to better understand peace in the middle east.
