The Dictator preview
Just got back from The Dictator preview at The Light in Leeds. I took my daughter (who just passes the certificate) and we both laughed like crazy at the outrageousness. The cinema was showing the 'live red carpet' for the London premiere before the film and it was good to see Sacha Baron Cohen kept totally in character for this - his discussion with and about Al Fayed and Diana was hilarious (he's Harry's Dad, who knew :) - even arriving in a flash car surrounded by Wayida virgins. Our favourite bit of the film is the helicopter scene, which is far longer than the trailer, but it is consistently funny all the way through. The film is out in cinemas on 16 May.
