KIRKUS REVIEW

An imperious, pint-sized sultan who spouts proverbs while gaining the ""international viewpoint"" about such matters as assertive girls gives this fancy dress escapism a gloss of liberal chic. But really, how far can you go with a kidnapping plot that begins with an Arab gunman disguised as a nun. . . and gives the fleeing victims time to stop in mid-chase for interludes of wild strawberries and soccer. Strictly a costume affair, and a makeshift one at that.
