The Kidd here...
i've been a Sacha Baron Cohen fan going back to his Ali G days. He's one of the reasons I find TALLADEGA NIGHTS tolerable, and BORAT is easily one of those times I've never laughed so hard (cue up the naked wrestling fight). BRÜNO had its fair share of moments, but it definitely felt like Cohen was focusing on pushing the envelope further and further rather than really paying attention to making a funny film. After supporting roles in SWEENEY TODD and HUGO, Cohen is back enter stage for THE DICTATOR, which shies away from the mockumentary style he's done quite well and puts him into far more scripted fare with the likes of John C. Reilly, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley and Megan Fox. This time Cohen plays Admiral General Aladeen, dictator of the Republic of Wadiya, and... well, you can find out the rest yourself.
What you can find out from me, however, is how to come out Thursday night, May 10, to pledge your allegiance to Aladeen and the Republic of Wadiya for an advance screening of THE DICTATOR at the AMC Sunset Place 24 in South Miami.
I've got a block of tickets for the movie, and, if you want to get your hands on a pair for yourself and a guest, you're going to have to start thinking like a dictator. It's easy in a democracy to start coming up with a basic bill of rights that your citizens should be entitled to by the mere fact that they're born. However, when it comes to a dictatorship, you've got to start taking things away from people to show them who's in charge.
Therefore, I want your anti-Bill of Rights as a dictator of your own fictional country. Give me the five rights people don't have under your rule, or at the very least the five things you're guaranteeing to take away from people that they might be able to have somewhere else with more freedom.
I'll pick the best lists as they roll in and start giving out tickets until I'm all out, so be swift and good at the same time. Once they're all gone, they're all gone.
Send in your name and list to Contests@AintItCool.com with the following subject line exactly (in all CAPS):
I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE DICTATOR
Winners will be posted as soon as I'm all out.
If you're not sure if you're going to be able to make it, it's quite simple - don't enter. If you don't think you can get out of work early enough, or if you have class, homework, chores, scheduled surgery, an unreliable car, prior engagements or previous commitments that may prevent you from attending this screening, don't try to win only to let these seats go to waste. Oh, and, if you enter to win and then no-show, don't expect to win anything anytime soon in the future, which would be a shame considering what awaits you this summer and beyond.
Thanks to Paramount Pictures for setting this up. Good luck.
