(2009) Directed by Grant Heslov. Screenplay by Peter Straughan, based on the book by Jon Ronson. Cast: George Clooney, Ewan McGregor, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Spacey
Too funny to be fiction describes the absurdist new comedy starring Ewan McGregor as British journalist in Iraq who happens upon a loopy recruit of The New Earth Army (a hilarious George Clooney), trained in overcoming the enemy with the use of paranormal activity, martial arts, and eagle feathers. Did we mention this is a (mostly) true story? McGregor follows his story to the plan's outrageous leader, a Vietnam vet played by Jeff Bridges, and tracks down the cadre's secret warfare, from staring down goats to cloud-bursting (just what it sounds like) to locating terrorists with ESP. "Glorious fun. Bridges brings his Big Lebowski Dude-ness to the proceedings - a sublime stoner sensibility that spreads like second-hand pot smoke through the theater." Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer. 94 min.
