Sacha Baron Cohen's latest a scatalogically-obsessed misfire

No one makes movies quite like Sacha Baron Cohen.

Characters drive Cohen's work bizarre, fringe-y, over-the-top characters that Cohen creates and then structures narratives around. Borat, Bruno, Ali G these weirdos were the centerpieces around which Cohen filled in the gaps to create his films.

And if there's one thing that can't be disputed, it is Cohen's pathological willingness to commit to the bit, no matter how weird and/or unpleasant it might be. He pushes boundaries it's the basic concept behind everything that he does.
