Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?

Morgan Spurlock, director of Super Size Me and the creator of the FX series 30 Days, tries to answer this question by traveling to the Middle East in search of the most wanted man in the world.  After Spurlock finds out his girlfriend is pregnant, he must do whatever is possible for his child to grow up in safe and peaceful world.  This means only one thing, finding Osama Bin Laden (or OBL as Spurlock calls him).  The catch is that he only has seven weeks to complete his mission before his child's birth. 

Spurlock travels to Egypt, Morocco, Israel, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and finally Afghanistan in his search for OBL.  Along the way he encounters everyday people from the region who are more than willing to help him (most of them anyways) in his search and offer their views on terrorism, the United States (it's not as bad as you think), and what they want in their lives and for their children.

Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden is funny and educational.  I highly recommend this film.  I have to give credit to Spurlock, he went where most never would and got closer than most have.  He's the Grizzly Man of the Middle East, only with a better ending (of course I think Grizzly Man got what he asked for).
