The Dictator Trailer: Sacha Baron Cohen Rules With An Iron Fist. And Stupidity

It's not that I don't enjoy parody or satire. I do. God, do I. I mean shit, I write on this site for you assholes. And it's not that I don't like Sacha Baron Cohen -- I uncomfortably enjoyed Borat and was quite a fan of "Da Ali G Show."

But I felt that Bruno was awful, and based solely on the trailer, The Dictator isn't doing much to persuade me that he can reclaim his comic brilliance. I like the idea of a dictatorial satire, and I even like the idea of Cohen taking on the lead. But this is bush league stuff, nothing particularly clever or funny about it. It's low hanging fruit, lowest denominator crap, complete with goofy-assed music videos and montages. I'd much rather see something a little smarter, you know?

Hell, I'd rather just watch Moon Over Parador.

Anyway, here's the trailer:
