The Lizard (Persian: مارمولک , Marmoulak) is a 2004 Iranian comedy directed by Kamal Tabrizi.
Although a comedy, the film makes serious points about the clergy, religion, society in Iran, and life in general. Due to the film's perceived attacks towards clerics, the movie was banned from theatres in Iran after only being on screen for one month. Yet despite this short run, the film broke all Iranian movie box office records and was the top grossing Iranian movie of all time until Tahmineh Milani's 'Atash Bas (Cease-fire)'.
