With about as much documentary credibility as "Borat," "Where in the World Is Osama bin Laden?" combines low comedy, high production values and the Middle East for what will surely be a hit, even as it delivers nothing new -- let alone the world's most elusive terrorist. Morgan Spurlock, of the "Super Size Me" phenom, serves up a rehash of others' 9/11 reportage, bin Laden biography, Islamic theology and suicide-bomber psychology, in a tone so aghast you'd assume he knew nothing about the War on Terror -- which should make pic very appealing for those who know nothing about the War on Terror.
Punctuated throughout by animation portraying bin Laden and Spurlock as videogame nemeses, the film begins with Spurlock, after learning his wife is pregnant, reacts drastically -- by leaving home for the most troubled region on Earth. His reasoning: For his child to grow up in a safe world, he needs to find the world's most wanted man.
