When Sacha Baron Cohen is right, he's oh-so right (the brilliant ¿Borat¿). But when he's not quite there, it's obvious (Bruno¿). If his Oscar-night stunt is any indication, ¿The Dictator¿ could go either way. Cohen plays the titular head of a vaguely Middle Eastern country who hates democracy. He also plays a goat herder, and both travel across America together, apparently interacting with Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley.
Our excitement level: 4. Prepare for the endless free speech vs. cultural jokes debate.
