Michael Caine Lets His Hair Down In First Trailer For DEAR DICTATOR

NOT directed by Christopher Nolan.

I just don’t know what to think about this first trailer for Dear Dictator. Let’s start off by letting it speak for itself, I suppose:

It’s a story you’ve heard a million times. Girl becomes pen pal with violent dictator, violent dictator shows up at her house, girl must endure comedy hi-jinx to keep him secret and safe while violent dictator teaches her how to crush and destroy her mean girl enemies at school. Can’t Hollywood make something original for a change?

Anyway, this looks like it could be funny, and with Katie Holmes, Jason Biggs and Seth Green along for the ride it has a pretty solid 2002 cast going for it. If nothing else, this will be a real treat for anyone who dreamed of one day seeing Michael Caine waterboard Jason Biggs with milk.
