Lulu's Breakfast LUNCH Dinner Series 18

Footnote taken from The Trouble With Malaysia, a Brian Yap essay from the book New Malaysian Essays 1

In this Ben Stiller comedy, a male model is brainwashed into assasinating the Prime Minister of Malaysia - of course it is banned.
It's never quite clear if it's the attempted assasination that's offensive, or the fact that the prime minister looks more like Ho Chi Minh that any of our real-life prime ministers.
