DVD: The Dictator (15)

 

Sacha Baron Cohen's latest grotesque is General Aladeen, the "mad dog of Wadiya", who is fixated with developing "pointy" nuclear weapons. He's an imbecile who, like Eddie Murphy's Prince Akeem Joffer in Coming to America, travels to the US and subjects them, particularly Anna Faris's sweet campaigner, to his ignorance. It's flimsy, offensive, but not memorably so, with the odd decent visual gag.
