The Dictator


If you offend easily then it's best you avoid this one, however, I will warn you that watching this movie may result in learning great truths.

Sacha Baron Cohen delivers a delightfully crass story that might just prove more honest and patriotic than any "Dove approved" film.

If you are able, relax and laugh at the things you know you snigger at in the quiet moments when no one is watching. Let go of appropriate social expectations and bask in the glory of silliness. For it is in the silliness that we often come to understand what really is serious and matters in life.

My only criticism of this film is with Megan Fox, who plays herself as a slut. I personally don't understand why anyone would want to play themself in such a bad light? Megan will have enough trouble trying to prove to the world that her acting is worth more than just her very pretty body, but it would seem each acting job she takes only enforces the idea that she's got nothing to offer other than her temporary good looks. It's sad. Perhaps she will be able to move beyond that someday. After all, for now, she can't help being so sexy.

Do see the film, though, it's made me a new Sacha fan!
