Holy God I can't wait to see this.

Been a Sacha Baron Cohen fan since the Ali G show and I really don't give a shit if it comes off as just being "dumb funny" to a lot of people, because this guy has a great multi-layering comedic ability.

Of course, I might come back here saying that it's rubbish, but for now, I'm really looking forward to it.

I don't think I want to see it. I love Cohen when he's doing interviews and things like that, but when he starts getting nasty he can get REALLY nasty. Not in the mood to see a bunch of naked men and homosexual jokes.

I haven't heard this much penis talk about a movie since Watchmen came out.

It's been a pretty weak summer for comedies, even if most people think The Hangover is some future classic. I'd be down to see this if I was going with a group of friends, I guess.

I think if it was a real movie with actors, the jokes wouldnt have been funny. Its the fact that he's doing things to real, unsuspecting people that gets me. But hey, if you dont like it, thats cool. It just means more U2 tickets for me....wait, wrong forum

I didn't know Bono was in it so that was a nice surprise. I found the movie to be pretty damn funny. The straight dave segment was the best.. I don't know how he made it out of there alive.

8 people walked out of my theater.

I'm not sure if I believe Paula Abdul wasn't in on that, but if she was..she must have a really good sense of humor to sit on those men like that. I thought that part was minutely funny. It felt wrong to laugh, though.

I heard she was in on it too, but if thats the case, I think she was pretty convincing....and the squid on the wiener was hilarious

So... still inappropriate for 15 year old girls to go to? I have no desire to see it, but my daughter & her friends want to go, but of course they need an adult. I'm siding on the 'no' option

I would have to say yes, it's inappropriate for a 15-year-old. A lot of the 'funny' bits come from scenes that seem to be there solely for its shock value.

I don't remember that part. I might have been rolling my eyes and didn't see it.


Lila, I have to concur with Bo..your motherly instincts will kick in and you'll want to cover her eyes and ears for 97% of the movie.

Thank you both! I definitely didn't think it was supposed to be appropriate.

I really wanna see this movie but I'm 15.
Maybe I'll just rent it at Blockbuster when it comes out.
