Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Patriot Act is a feature-length "home video" that captures a rare and intimate look into the early days of the American occupation of Iraq through the eyes of stand-up comedian, Jeffrey Ross.

Amazon.com

When standup comedian Jeffrey Ross joined Drew Carey's U.S.O. show that toured through Iraq during the first year of the American occupation, he took along a video camera and made a clumsy but strikingly intimate portrait of the armed forces. Performing in venues as different as the Baghdad Civic Center and a camouflaged camp in the middle of the desert, seven comedians (Ross, Carey, Kathy Kinney, Blake Clark, Kyle Dunnigan, Andres Fernandez, and Rocky LaPorte) did what they could to entertain soldiers who suffered sand, heat, and being shot at--but the brief snippets of rough comedy are little more than a sidelight. The most intriguing aspects of Patriot Act (which, despite its title, is largely apolitical) are the simple conversations with G.I.s, bellhops, translators, and others, who endure a difficult situation with a weary smile and a little glimpse of hope. It's the ordinary effort of life that comes through, even when surrounded by bombed buildings and armored vehicles. Ross has no great insights, but he proves an affable and earnest tour guide. --Bret Fetzer

Great job, Jeff.

The documentary style is unique for that time and a style that seems to be more prevalent as more and more documentaries come out.

Your sacrifice, and the risk you take, is greatly appreciated by those of us in uniform.

Just received this moving DVD in Germany and I think we should have this on a wide screen in Munich for all to see.

We Germans well recognize these brave soldiers - they saved us and Europe twice and many lie forever in graveyards around, for what was for them, a strange continent - and they are at it again. We Europeans sit back in our coffee shops and criticize. We forget, too soon, the modest unrecognized greatness of these Americans and Ross lays this out for us to be reminded - and not a moment too soon.

Dressed in humor, their sacrifice is made all the more pointed, and this talented new director creates a beautiful balance that captures and draws the most critical, anti- american into this - the selfless and thankless effort for the greater good, that is the American Story..... Ross is non political and tells it as he sees it. I look forward to his next movie and hope more international critics get to see this creative work of some quiet greatness. Danke Herr Ross we salute your country and you!

Just ordered the DVD, so I can't comment on the film. However, Jeffrey's performance in Baghdad was tremendous. He was by far the funniest comedian to perform that evening, with Kathy Kinney a close second, who simply read the newspaper and provided an hilarious, unscripted commentary. His "poetry" was inspired. The theater was packed with troops (and a few Iraqis who seemed confused -- stand-up doesn't translate too well). Everybody had a great time forgetting about the war for an hour or so. I'm sure this DVD will bring back a good memory from a time and place that had relatively few.

Kudos to Jeffrey, his fellow comedians, and to all those who make the trek to entertain troops at war. Your sacrifice, and the risk you take, is greatly appreciated by those of us in uniform. I'm sure Bob Hope is smiling appreciatively.

This movie shows a side of American Soldiers, Airmen, and Marines that you will NEVER see on broadcast news. These young people in uniform are the one's who have answered the call to defend our freedom. They deserve our respect, admiration, and most importantly our realization that they truely believe in the cause they are fighting for. Get this movie, watch it with your children and friends. Okay, maybe there is a little rough language, but your kids will get over it. The lessons learned about the reality of a Soldiers life are worth watching this film. Great job, Jeff. And thank you.

I saw it at a screening in February, and was blown away. It's such a great perspective of the soldiers, and I'm really impressed by the access that it provides to areas of Iraq previously unavailable to the public. Jeff Ross was at the screening, and was so earnest about his experiences; to see how it affected him, made it that much more moving. I highly recommend it to anyone that's interested in the Middle East, the war, or even just a fan of these comics.

Saw this on Showtime and loved it. Ross takes us on an amazing tour of behind the scenes Iraq. Would make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves comedy regardless of their politics. Nice publicity for the USO.

I was in Tikrit, Iraq when Jeffrey Ross, Drew Carey, Kathy Kinney and others came to entertain us. It was awesome, and a much needed laugh! Jeff even mooned us when the song, "I like big butts and I can not lie..." was played, I never laughed so hard in my life! Our company was at a diffrent base from where they performed and because it was a night show we had to stay at that base and truck some gear there to stay over for this show, but it was well worth it!!!

I saw Jeffrey Ross perform in Osan, Korea during a USO tour. He briefly mentioned the release of this DVD, so when I saw it on the shelves, I had to get it. This movie makes ME want to entertain the troops.
