- Difference in running time: 929,2 sec (= 15:29 min)



The Movie


So far, Sacha Baron Cohen mostly tried to expose people's prejudices and morally questionable attitudes by confronting them with his politically absolutely incorrect characters. The crossing of many lines was just practical for the creation of his mockumentaries and whether it was really amusing for the viewer or not: the real interesting thing about his movies were the unsuspecting "victims".
However, his last movie, The Dictator does not follow his predecessors' path and can be seen as a classic comedy featuring solely fictional characters although the background is still politically controversial. What is left is the rather primitive humor and, despite some more intelligent jokes, this can be seen as a typical and rather tame US comedy. Of course, humor is subject to taste and there should be something to laugh for everyone due to the sheer amount of gags, but the film cannot live up the Cohen's earlier movies.

The movie was still a success, especially with international audiences. This was probably enough reason to try to make the home cinema release more interesting by adding another version of the film...



The Extended Version


Running more than 15 minutes longer, the unrated version offers a lot of additional footage. Also, several (though usually short) scenes were removed from the theatrical version, which means that the movies actually differ even more. It seems that many scenes were removed because the jokes were not as funny in reality as they seemed on paper, but that might be subjective again...
Interestingly, Larry Kind and the big breasted "Busty Heart" only appear in the unrated version, especially the latter appears in several shots that are spread all over the movie. Despite the frequent exposure of breasts and the connected "Banned" trait, these scenes were probably just removed in order to tighten the movie. There does not seem to be any censoring background for any of the extensions.

The DVD and Blu-ray releases in both the US and the UK contain the unrated version.

Nadal: "Supreme Leader, let me explain to you."
General Aladeen is not interested anymore: "You've lost me."
Nadal shakes his hand and tries to explain: "This is the missile in Wadiya, you push the button, 'Boop!' Israel... 'No! Why? Aah!' Nuclear winter."
General Aladeen presents his alternative, in which the bomb bounces back on the wrong city: "The reality is... Oy vey. 'Aah!' Us."
Nadal: "Believe me, sir, if I could make the device even a little more pointy, I would, but I simply cannot."

He then adds: "Send his wife some chocolate covered almond nuts in a cellophane wrapped box. Delicious.“
Holding almonds, he bends over the corpse: "We're going to send your wife some almonds. Chocolate covered versions of these."
While doing so, an almond is falling into the head wound: "Ooh! Maroush, I think I dropped an almond in his head. Can you take it out? What I don't want to do is send the body to the family and then they discover an almond in his head, and they say, 'Why is there an almond in his head?' Take it out. Clean it! How am I gonna eat that?"
Maroush succeeds to do so, but does not really know what to do with the almond afterwards.
Tamir: "Don't eat it."
General Aladeen: "Oh, Maroush!"
He turns back to the corpse: "Listen, everything is gonna be just fine. I don't want you to worry about anything."

When Aladeen enthusiastically tells his coworkers about his first masturbation, the two versions diverge quite a bit towards the end. He tells Zoey a bit differently at first, then the Unrated features three new scenes (all in all more than 6 minutes of exclusive footage): A chat about Masturbation with Nadal and a fight with Etra, who can show her breasts quite a bit in the meantime. Afterwards, Aladeen is responsible for the cancellation of the contract with Lancaster in the store (this was explained differently in the previous talk with Zoey in the Theatrical Version, however, it was still Aladeen's fault).


Theatrical Version

Aladeen meets Zoey in the office, she has just finished a call.
Aladeen: "Zoey, you have changed my life! Give a man a vagina and he wil shpichs for a day. Teach a man to use his hand as a vagina and he will shpichs for a lifetime."
Zoey, however, is in tears, causing Aladeen to ask: "Is something the matter?"
Zoey: "That was the guy from the Lancaster on the phone. They just fired us!"
Aladeen: "What? Why?"
Zoey: "He said he came by and someone kicked his son... They've given the contract to Green World Market."
Aladeen: "We must get the contract back. I have to be at the signing."
Zoey: "I don't know what to say! My staff lacks the discipline and motivation to do this job."
Aladeen: "We will see about that. But from now on, it is my way or the highwahahtmaa-fferrohshelechnich way. Okay?"


Unrated

Aladeen goes further in the same shot, Zoey is standing in the other corner of the store.
Aladeen: "Zoey! You have changed my life! Give a man a vagina and he will shpichs for a day. Teach a man how to use his hand as a vagina, and he will shpichs for a lifetime."
Zoey is embarassed: "Oh. No, no. Thank you. Um... Allison, you may need to keep your voice down because... We've got a lot of customers. You may want to go wash up."
Aladeen: "Fine. Joteph, go and hose down my Crocs. I've done my labeneh all over the wellness center."


In the evening: Zoey prepares some specialties from Wadiya.
Zoey: "Okay. The guy from the Lancaster is going to love this. Okay. Good night, Allison. I'll see you tomorrow morning."
Aladeen is masturbating again: "Good night! Thank you again. This is nice. Or lovely."
The phone rings: "Who is it'?"
Nadal: "Nadal. What are you doing?"
Aladeen: "I've discovered this amazing thing. I have to show you how to do it. It's called self juicing. You put your hand on your bilbul and you rub it, and then you can make your own labeneh come out. You don't have to spend any Rolexes. You don't have to give any dirty diamonds."
Nadal: "I cannot believe I'm having this conversation with an adult man..."
Aladeen: "What do you mean? You knew about this?"
Nadal: "Everybody knows about this. We all know about this from the age of 12, 13."
Aladeen: "Why does nobody ever tell me anything?"
Nadal: "Because you have everybody executed who tells you anything."
Aladeen: "Listen, I'm thinking of revealing my true identity to the hairy titted ape woman."
Nadal: "Whoa! No, what? Why would you even do that?"
Aladeen: "I think she'll be cool with it."
Nadal: "She will not be cool with it."
Aladeen: "How is she to judge? She shaves her armpits once a year, and she takes lovers outside of her ethnic group. Are my crimes any worse than hers?"
Nadal: "Remember, you hate her. And everything she stands for."
Aladeen: "Okay."
Nadal: "I have to go now. I despise you."
Aladeen: "You know, sometimes you say some very hurtful things. Anyway, I'm going to hang up on you."
Nadal: "No, come on. This is like a real opportunity for me. I want to hang up first."
Aladeen: "I've hung up. I hung up already."
He mimics the sound with his voice but Nadal notices: "That is your voice doing that noise. You have not hung up. I am hanging up. 'Click'."
Adal has done the same, now Aladeen asks: "Nadal, are you still there? Nadal, are you still there?"
Nadal says "I win", then he hangs up.
Aladeen: "No wonder you're a Mac Genius."
Nadal: "What a fucking idiot."
Aladeen switches off the light.


The sound of glass breaking can be head, Aladeen gets up: "Zoey! Zoey. Zoey?"
Etra is waiting for him in a dark corner of the store and open her top on one side. Aladeen is thrown to the ground by her breast several times and asks: "Etra, is this because you're the only virgin guard that I left a virgin?"
The fight is now one floor further down. Aladeen tries to remove a breast that blocks him from closing the door behind him and eventually has to bite into it. However, Etra manages to smash the whole door with her breast and keeps on pursueing him.
She now exposes her second breast as well and attacks Aladeen even more ferociously. After being choked with the two monstrous boobs, Aladeen can free himself with a well aimed punch and Etra lands in the water and drown.
Aladeen: "One, two... Bloop. Text book."
Her little notebook has just appeared.


The next morning Zoey enters the store with her boss.
Zoey: "Thank you so much for meeting me early, Mr. Ogden. I cannot wait for you to sample our mafroom. You are gonna swear that you're in Wadiya."
Mr. Ogden: "Excuse me. What is that over there? That is a 'C' in your window."
Zoey: "No, no, no... They're totally biased against this. They hate us."
Mr. Ogden: "No, it's not. I know what a 'C' means. It's not a very good..."
Sie kommen ins Innere und entdecken Aladeen vor zerstörten Früchten.
Zoey: "Oh, my God! Allison, what happened?"
Aladeen: "Uh... I don't know, I... I was downstairs self juicing."
Zoey: "All night?"
Aladeen: "Yes."
Mr. Ogden: "I'm sorry, you were doing what?"
Aladeen: "Doing the jerk off. Jerking myself to totally off. Let me show you."
Zoey: "No..."
Aladeen: "She taught me."
Mr. Ogden: "Oh, she taught you, did she?"
Zoey: "No..."
Mr. Ogden: "Well, thank you very much. The contract is canceled. That's it! No, I'm going to Green World. It's over."
Zoey: "No, Mr. Ogden."
Aladeen: "Remember, I have to pay that..."
Zoey: "Please, no, no."
Mr. Ogden: "Self juicing. Filth!"
Er ist aus der Tür gegangen und Aladeen meint: "Zoey. We must get that contract back."
Zoey: "We can't! It's impossible. We can't compete with Green World."
Aladeen: "We will see about that. But from now on, it is my way or the highwahahtmaa-fferrohshelechnich way."
