I haven't seen it either. John watched it on the plane to New Zealand
and confirmed for me that I have no interest in seeing it.
Well, it is laugh-out-loud funny, which is a lot more than most so-called comedies are these days. It makes a joke out of bigotry and pig ignorance, which isn't such a bad thing. And Baron Cohen is sort of hot, in a strange way. He was fantastic as the gay, French NASCAR driver in TALLADEGA NIGHTS. I had to stick around for the credits just to see who that guy was playing that role. Now he's a star, and deservedly so.
It's interesting how chic it is to diss him and his film in this precinct. I guess he must be doing something right.
