THE DICTATOR was actually banned. In the Republic of Tajikistan, a county ruled by the same man for twenty years through bloody civil war and ethnic cleansing. True story.  It was a swift and decisive move which... really does nothing but up Sacha Baron Cohen's publicity and make more people all the more likely to buy this (pretty damn funny) movie.   For the (fun) record, THE DICTATOR was also banned in Malaysia and the Republics of Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan

In a statement meant to promote THE DICTATOR's release, General Aladeen of Wadiya issued the following statement: “My film is funnier than equal rights for women, as gut-busting as a UN resolution and more hilarious than watching a student set himself on fire. Owning a copy of my glorious and award-winning** film will give you more pleasure than having Halle Berry rub almond oil into your buttocks while you stimulate her bint al-sahn with your mashloof…and it will cost you considerably less money.  Although my film was subjected to the infamous authoritarian censorship of the West, thanks to Blu-ray and DVD you can finally see all the really naughty bits. I have your home address, so trust me, you WILL love it.”

** The 2012 Wadiyan Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director, Best Writer, Best Costumes, Best Simulated Sex Scene, Best Actual Sex Scene, Best Torture Scene, Best Sound Mix, and Least Jewish Actor.

I love me some Sacha, but 50 bucks?!? If i am paying that much I deserve to at least have Halle Berry rub almond oil into my buttocks while I stimulate her bint al-sahn with my mashloof.

Concerning the tidbit:

Sure, but not as much as I'd like to own that ass above it.

Say what you will about Sacha Baron Cohen and his attention-seeking, king troll ways, but he can be quite funny. I like that the Wadiyan Academy Awards awarded him "Least Jewish Actor", when Baron Cohen is indeed Jewish. He makes fun of everybody else so often, it's easy to overlook that he can be hilariously self-deprecating.

Agreed. It's that part of his schtick that takes him above the shock-comedy pack, IMO. That, and his ability to satirize the stupidity around us. That final speech in The Dictator was a classic.
