Anyone who knows me, knows that I am cursed. The Sasha Baron Cohen curse. The two relationships in my life have been significantly impacted by two movies, Borat and Bruno. 2 bad first date films, 2 relationships later and one single girl still left standing, just. Yes that is right, somehow I managed to get myself on almost the same first date again, without inadvertently knowing that I was. Only me. You would think when a guy takes you to see a Sasha Baron Cohen film for a first date the alarm bells would ring, however my alarm bells remained muted, not once but on two occasions.What can I say, take me to a Sasha Baron Cohen film and I am an easy women, as history has shown us anyway
When I first saw the advertisements for the Dictator I cringed. My first reaction was to just go to and from work everyday without making eye contact with any man along the way and lock myself in my room until it stopped showing in cinemas. I could not end up on that same first date again. I could not allow history to repeat itself once-more. But instead last night, I broke the curse. I saw the dictator with 3 of my closest friends. No possibility of ending up on a history repeating date.
As for the movie, the Dictator does not even come close to Borat or Bruno and I don’t reccommend it. The shock value has been lost and the Dictator is missing the best element of the other films. No bagging out really over the top stupid, ignorant Americans. (I know it’s not all of you American’s by any means) The Dictator is tired and old hat now, but hey, at least the curse is broken. May my next first date not be filled with Sasha Baron Cohen.
