The Dictator: Don't Vote For Him

The Movie Slut is a big Sasha Baron Cohen fan. She loves his irreverence,  his political incorrectness and his just plain silliness. So maybe she went into the multiplex with expectations of Dickensian proportions.

Alas, "great" wasn't the word on the tip of her tongue when she left the theater.
Instead she kept thinking about Coming to America" the 1988 Eddie Murphy film in which a pampered king arrives on the streets of Manhattan.

Substitute Dictator for King and you've got what promised to be a laugh a minute.

It wasn't. Not that there wasn't any chuckling in the theater. Just not enough.
