Sacha Baron Cohen has reached the law of diminishing returns - CinemaDave

Jun. 16th, 2012 02:48 pm Sacha Baron Cohen has reached the law of diminishing returns

**The Dictator** is a rude, crude and socially unacceptable contrast to **Rock of Ages.** This is another politically incorrect comedy from Sacha Baron Cohen.

Unlike his serio-documentary comedies, **The Dictator** hires actors like Sayed Bradreya, Ben Kingsley and Anna Farris, who hopefully know that they are playing fictitious characters. There are genuine belly laughs from the exhibitionist Sacha Baron Cohen, but the laughs are more shocking than humorous.

Given the low budget of **The Dictator,** the film has earned back it's production budget, the film is doing better overseas than in America. Yet one wonders if Sacha Baron Cohen Comedies has reached the point of diminishing returns, like Adam Sandler. Ten years ago Adam Sandler was a box office god, whose recent film **That's My Boy,** was a Father's Day Box Office disaster last weekend.
