If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Sacha Baron Cohen ('Borat,' 'Bruno') is very hit or miss with me. I think his ability to create and commit unflinchingly to wild characters is admirable, but I find his reliance on "average people put on the spot" mockumentary humor tiresome. That's why I enjoyed this first trailer for his upcoming, obviously scripted, comedy 'The Dictator.' He plays a Middle Eastern, you guessed it, dictator who comes to America. There are some things about it I dislike, namely the inclusion of Megan Fox as...Megan Fox. However, Cohen manages to make this clearly over-the-top caricature interesting and quite funny. The scene of his creative method of winning a footrace had me in stitches. Give it a watch below and tell us what you think.
