A Kardashian joke. A WTF joke. Jokes based on a nonsense version of an Arabic language. The trailer for The Dictator, the new Sacha Baron Cohen joint (based on a book written by Saddam Hussein) indicates that I'm going to have to sum up heroic amounts of The New Optimism to get excited about this film.
Give us this day our daily trailer! Today is the 30th anniversary of the senseless murder of John Lennon. We could run a trailer from one of the great Beatles movies like HELP! or A HARD DAY’S NIGHT, but instead we’re perversely bringing you HOW I WON THE WAR, a WWII farce starring Lennon and future PHANTOM OF THE OPERA Michael Crawford.
