For years we have heard that Sacha Baron Cohen was doing a movie about the legendary singer Freddie Mercury and then we heard it wasn’t happening. Today when he was on Howard Stern‘s radio show, the host wanted to know what happened.
The Shock Jock heard it was because they were going to go into the nitty gritty of his life, but Borat explained it was more than that. He claims that he should’ve known that things were going to go bad when he first met the band. He says that one of the members felt that their leader should die midway through movie. What? He then explained that that band member believed the second half of the film should be how the show went on for Queen after Mercury’s death.
Seriously, did Queen really go on without Freddie? They pretty much died the same day. To me, Queen was always Freddie Mercury and without him they are nothing.
Now having said that, I am so thrilled that they killed the biopic. As much as I love Mercury. I detest Cohen. He is no Freddie Mercury.
There was a time when Sacha Baron Cohen’s movies could open big at the box office, but that was then and this is now. His latest movie The Brothers Grimsby is bombing internationally.
So when I saw Zac Efron, who is 5’8″, carrying around the 6’3″ actor around like a baby. I thought it was fitting. Although with Efron’s latest movies, We Are Friends and Dirty Grandpa, wishing they could make anywhere near what Borat’s bring in, maybe he is the dead weight in this picture. Personally, I am surprised Efron’s movies don’t do better at the box office.
When Borat came out in 2006, everyone kept saying how funny it was. I hated it and barely laughed.
Now ten years later, Sacha Baron Cohen was on Conan tonight and the TBS late night asked him about a scene that landed on the cutting room floor. A scene that sounds so funny, I don’t know why it didn’t make it in over most of the other parts of the movie
What was it? An out of work Borat gets a job in a p0rno. But when his big scene cums, I mean comes, he finds an interesting way to get out of it. Or so he thought. When that fails, he finally gets his out performing, but everything leading up to that moment had me all wet. As in tears in my eyes from laughing so hard. Why? You just have to hear him describe it in his own words because my retell could never do it justice.
Sacha Baron Cohen was on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight to promote his new movie The Brothers Grimsby. What happens when an actor is on a late night talk show to promote their film, they bring a clip with them. Well, he brought a clip with him that was so graphic that the show couldn’t show it, so they came up with a way to still air it.
It almost makes you want to see the movie to see what happened, but you know in reality watching this will be a million times funnier than the film and much easier to sit through. This lasted only :90 seconds, and the film lasts :90 minutes and costs you at least $15 a ticket. This was free and when it comes to Borat/Bruno, free is always better. This way you don’t feel like you wasted that money on a pile of crap.
Sascha Baron Cohen is back doing comedies with The Brothers Grimsby and I think the movie, that is coming out on March 11th, looks like it should be going Straight-to-Netflix instead of to theaters. Or I should say Crackle since it is from Sony Pictures.
Either way, it looks like it will be another one of his film where all the funny parts were in the trailer and there weren’t that many moments that made me laugh.
Are you excited for this movie or will you spy anything else that weekend?
Back in 1979, Andy Kaufman was performing at Carnegie Hall and he brought out Eleanor Cody Gould, the last surviving member of the dancing cowgirls from the movie The Forest Rangers. Well the brilliant comedian had the elderly actress do the dance she did in the movie, faster and faster, until she died right there on the stage of a heart attack.
Fast forward to this weekend, a comedian that wishes he was as much of a genius as the Taxi star, tried a similar stunt. Sacha Baron Cohen received the Charlie Chaplin Award For Excellence In Comedy at BAFTA LA and they brought only the oldest surviving actress to have worked with the Tramp. While imitating the walk that Chaplin had with his cane, Borat knocked Grace Collington off the stage and appeared to have killed her.
Just like Kaufman, it was just a big hoax and both actresses survived the bit. But unlike Kauffman it wasn’t as good.
So my advice to Cohen, stick to your own schtick.
In case you don’t remember Kaufman’s famous bit, you can watch it below:

Sacha Baron Cohen is in Cannes to promote his latest unfunny movie The Dictator and it doesn’t look like it will be smooth sailing for him. He took George Clooney’s ex Elisabetta Canalis on a boat ride, and it ended it as good for her as it did when she broke up with the Oscar winner. Instead of leaving the way she came on the boat, the Dancing with the Stars “star” was thrown overboard in a black plastic bag after laughing at his tiny pen!s. I mean you can’t blame her, it just seems that men with small dicks make up for it by being big ones. And after seeing Borat and Bruno, I think his little Dictator is the only funny thing about him.
Before Sacha Baron Cohen was torturing unsuspecting people in his movies like Borat, he was torturing people knowingly on Pump TV. I totally didn’t recognize the 24 year old actor in that 1995 game show.
The trailer for The Dictator is out, and I am hoping the film makes like Saddam Hussein, Kadafi and Osama bin Laden and dies a slow painful death. Maybe I am still not over that dick twirling scene in Bruno, but I seriously wish Sacha Baron Cohen would stop making unfunny and hate filled movies.
Dang what is happening to me, I used to like movies like that, but he destroyed that for me. Dang you Borat, Bruno and The DickHater.
Did Sacha Baron Cohen finally get a job fitting of his movies like Bruno and Borat? You know working with trash. Sadly nope it is just him taking out the garbage for his latest trashy film The Dictator or as I like to call it The DicKtator.
Seriously am I the only who is still emotionally scarred from Bruno? I still have terrifying flashbacks from that scene where the d!ck goes around and around.
