The Turkish Adam Sandler

The Turkish movie industry likes to do blatant ripoffs of Hollywood films. This Turkish version of Star Trek, Turist Ömer Uzay Yolunda, looks to be fun in a cheesy way.

...that is, until the hero of the film, Omer the Tourist shows up. I watched the full version of Turist Omer..., with English subtitles, on Google video and I have to say that perhaps Turkish humour is lost on me. The Star Trek actors were fun, but Omer the Tourist struck me as a Turkish version of Adam Sandler. Perhaps they needed Omer to bring in viewers. I don't know...

I've posted (alas, without subtitles) the Omer-free opening part of the film.
