Critical Consideration: The Opening Scene of The Dictator
Capsule review: Pffft….
Complete review: Yeah, I guess so…It’s a sad time for comedy, what’re you gonna do?
Extended essay: Weren’t all those jokes in Bananas?
Bonus thought: The fact that America’s entertainment industry writers viewing an advance screening at the industry convention in Las Vegas left the screening to declare as one that the movie is hilarious and a return to form for Baron Cohen should be a cause for grave concern.
Editors Note: But I would really like this to be good. Comedy can’t afford to lose another star to the abyss of unfunny.
