Us Rating: ***

George Clooney’s warped sense of humor shines in this spoof about a special agent who goes to Iraq alongside a reporter (Ewan McGregor). On their journey, the pair battle both terrorists and, yes, a herd of farm animals. Still, with its unhinged comedy — the finale is an LSD-enhanced goat liberation scene! — it’s not for everyone. (Overture Films, $30)
