Sacha Baron Cohen isn't content to let James Bond have all the spy fun. The actor, comedian and writer has just sold a new script to Paramount -- a spy spoof that, if Cohen's previous work is any indicator, seems to be just as ridiculous as 'Borat' and 'Bruno.'

‘The Dictator’ Review

The Dictator
Paramount Pictures

Sacha Baron Cohen and 'The Dictator' pitch a wide tent. He's got Megan Fox gags for the 'US Weekly' crowd and sex acts with decapitated heads for those who think John Waters' early films are not subversive enough. He maliciously exaggerates Middle Eastern cultural stereotypes for viewers of Fox News, then slips in anti-Western imperialist sentiment for Democracy Now! donors.

This all reaches a dizzying spin when Anna Faris, head of a vegan food co-op in Brooklyn, shouts that the NYPD are fascists, and Cohen's General Aladeen pipes in with Groucho-esque timing, “yeah, and not the GOOD kind!”

This is one of my favorite jokes in the film because it is indicative of 'The Dictator's' all-over-the-place political point of view. It wants to have its labneh and eat it too and, by and large, it succeeds – but from a comedy perspective only. As an 83-minute collection of gags it is quite remarkable. As a “movie” with actual plot and character, it makes 'MacGruber' look like 'The King's Speech.'
