Screen Play: “The Dictator”

It’s Saddam funny

Meet Admiral General Aladeen, the ruler of a fictitious North African country who’s coming to America. Though Sacha Baron Cohen’s shtick may be an acquired taste, you should still sample the goods. (Fill up on him now; he’s unchained from Tarantino’s “Django” out Christmas Day.) Watch the trailer, and if you’re not laughing (and slightly offended), you’re doing it wrong.​
