The North African nation of Wadiya has the potential to be the next Dubai…if it weren't for the crushing poverty, lack of refinement and the man who rules from his inherited throne—General Haffaz Aladeen.
Comedy - Like Borat and Bruno, this is a showcase for a crude
and very politically incorrect comic character created and played by
Sacha Baron Cohen. Unlike those two films, this has more of a
traditional script and story structure, but the potentially offensive
humor full of raunchy and hot button gags are still the same and
mostly target young adult males. Language, sex, nudity, and subject
matter make the film inappropriate for kids. Other known stars such
as Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, and especially John C. Reilly have small
PROFANITY: 7 F-words; 2 S-words; a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Sexual situations with partial nudity; masturbation; brief non-sexual nudity. VIOLENCE: Killings, shootings, fights. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and tobaccco. ACTION: None. COMEDY: Crude and potentially offensive sex and political gags; physical humor; banter and wisecracks.
Oil rich and isolated, the North African state of Wadiya has been ruled by
the vehemently anti-West Aladeen since he was six, when he was named Supreme
Leader after the unfortunate death of his father, sadly killed in a hunting
accident - hit by 97 stray bullets and a hand grenade.
Since his ascension to absolute power, Aladeen's trusted advisor has been his
Uncle Tamir (SIR BEN KINGSLEY), who serves as Head of the Secret Police, Chief
of Security and Procurer or Women.
Unfortunately for Aladeen and his advisors, the much-despised West has begun
to poke its nose into Wadiyan affairs, and the United Nations has repeatedly
sanctioned the country over the last decade - the Dictator is not about to let a
Security Council inspector into his secret weapons facility…don't they know what
"secret" means? But after an assassination attempt takes the life of yet another
ringer for the Supreme Leader, Tamir convinces Aladeen to go to New York to
address the United Nations' concerns.
And so General Aladeen, Tamir and their entourage arrive in New York to a
not-so-warm reception, as the city is rife with exiled Wadiyans, who only wish
to see their country freed from Aladeen's despotic rule.
But much more than angry expatriates and unwanted (and unwarranted!)
sanctions await Aladeen in the Land of the Free…
