For director Larry Charles, his third collaboration with Sacha Baron Cohen
provided him yet another opportunity to revisit a special kind of cinema.
Charles closes, "My favorite comedy is always one that works on multiple
levels...even going back to when I was a kid, watching Warner Bros. cartoons
like Bugs Bunny. As I got older and more sophisticated, I realized that they
were making jokes at all other levels for adults, and making references to
things that a kid wouldn't understand. But that made me want to understand.
Later, I found it to be the same with something like Saturday Night Live as
well. So I'm happy with anybody going to this movie and getting whatever they
get out of it. My main job is to offer them as much as possible - to give them
as dense and intense an experience as possible, and then it's up to them to
engage with it however they want to, whoever they are at that particular time,
going into the theater and absorbing it in that particular moment. So I'm open
to whatever experience people have with the movie, as long as they ultimately
enjoy it on some level."
Whatever the future holds for Wadiya and its leader, Aladeen will always hold
a place in his heart for the good days gone by. "I must say, I miss Kim Jong-il
very much. You know, he was a great guy. He died as he livedâ€¦in three-inch
heels. The guy did so much for the world, you know. He spread wisdom, compassion
and herpes throughout Southeast Asia. But he was very bullied at the gatherings
of the Axis of Evil. Gaddafi would always make these jokes on him. One time,
Muammar took Jong's Blackberry and would send love messages to Ahmadinejad,
telling him he wanted to kiss him, and promising the Korean people that they
would get food. You know, Libya almost got nuked for that."
