    almost in the style of Sasha Baron Cohen.

    To claim that it was 100 Jews paying $5,000,000 is such a laughable statement considering how low-budget of a movie it was.

    When you realize the amount spent was a joke, the number and ethnicity/religion of the funders becomes part of the joke as well.  Playing on a common narrative.

    I actually watched the 14 minute 'trailer' 3 times.  It wasn't until the final time that I realized how scenes and voice-overs had been edited to make it a film about Muhammad when the actors thought it was taking place in ancient Egypt.  

    That makes the whole endeavor all the more an outrageous farce.
