The Dictator Trailer: Sacha Baron Cohen Tries to Make Oppression Funny

Sacha Baron Cohen may have recently shown up in family film Hugo, but for The Dictator, he's going for more grown-up subject matter. In the political satire, Cohen plays the title character, a Saddam Hussein-like world leader who comes to America from his country, which he has been terrorizing for years. The film is a reunion for Cohen and Larry Charles, who directed Bruno and Borat, and though I love their collaborations, it feels like they're borrowing from their older material here. With his heavy accent and penchant for prostitutes, Cohen's tyrant seems a lot like Borat in a position of power.

While I have always loved Cohen's outrageous characters, the humor isn't as offensive as I was expecting, nor is it as funny; the Kardashian jokes just feel too easy, especially for the man who created characters like Ali G. Still, the preview is so brief I'm hoping that all the no-holds-barred humor is in the film, so check it out after the jump.

^right? He should have done an Ali G movie a long time ago. His other characters suck, including this one.
