We gave it a B+

”It’s a broad comedy about a very serious subject,” says writer-director Richard Sheperd (The Matador) of his latest genre bender. Based on an article about journalists chasing a Bosnian war criminal, the film was developed with the ironic title Spring Break in Bosnia before taking on a less tongue-in-cheek name. ”It’s very hard to tell stories like this and make them palatable,” says Gere. ”Most moviegoers don’t go to the movies to be lectured.” And most moviemakers couldn’t pull off a fun film about war crimes. Consider us intrigued.
