These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Four Lions
Acceptable Religious Targets: Thoroughly deconstructed; writer/Director Chris Morris was intent on removing the terror of Jihadists by making them look as ridiculous as possible. So far no fatwas have been issued.
Hilarious in Hindsight: The film was released in August of 2010, possibly around the same time that the Geronimo operation, which led to the death of Osama bin Laden, was being planned.
Idiot Plot: Let's face it, if any of the Lions did anything remotely intelligent we'd be watching a completely different sort of film.
Moral Event Horizon: Barry blowing up Hassan when he bottles out and tries to surrender to a police officer who happens upon them. A fairly despicable act in itself, but Omar is especially outraged that Barry took away Hassan's choice to give his own life, and thus the posthumous rewards of his sacrifice.
Painful Rhyme: Hassan's lyrics. A sample: "For my creed/ I di-heed."
Tear Jerker: Omar pretends to be a doctor so he can deliver a coded message to his wife, a hospital receptionist: "I've finished my shift, I'm taking my team to the top floor"
Also when he hears Waj kill himself over the phone after trying to talk him out of it... and then walks into Boots.
...and it wasn't even a branch of Boot's, just some cheap little independent pharmacy, making Omar's gesture seem even more tragic and futile
Values Dissonance: The whole point of the film, but our protagonists have a hard time putting their finger on exactly which values.
