Y’all, I was going to ignore this movie completely — just pretend it didn’t exist. I’m not a Sacha Baron Cohen fan except in VERY limited doses and very special circumstances (so please don’t tell me I just need to spend some time with Borat, because I cannot), and his grossly annoying promo appearances for this are not helping. Also, the preview is abysmal. A cinematic abrasion. I needed Neosporin for my soul afterward. But then Anna Faris turned out to be pregnant, and some kind of gale force wind blew through the event, and… well, I’m still pretending SBC doesn’t exist, but that doesn’t mean we can’t hang out with the rest of them.
