Sacha Baron Cohen is back at it -- though his similarly satirical turns as Borat and Bruno, also done with director Larry Charles, had more bite -- in this comedy about a tyrannical foreign leader who comes to America and finds himself swept up in a series of very unexpected adventures.
Anna Faris, John C. Reilly and Ben Kingsley also appear ... but as with most of his Cohen's screen projects, the picture clearly is designed primarily to showcase his humorous brand of anarchy. DVD extras: deleted and extended scenes; Larry King-conducted interview. *** (R and unrated versions: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
