I will say what the scientist will not: Our freezing weather is the result of global warming.
The heart of the film, and there is lot of heart here, is watching this band of edgy, self-aware, second-generation NY wiseass Muslim comics extend themselves to people in small town America who sometimes have no idea what to do with them.
