Just after the opening credit during the ABN telecast, Aladeen is shown to have been born with a beard and is depicted to have the same in later life also in the movie. However, during the same telecast in his childhood (pre-teens) he is shown without a beard, first in the scene where his father is being entertained by jokers and next in the still photo of him holding a cigar in right hand and a AK-series rifle in left hand (just before the Larry King segment).

Have you consulted Professor Bobeye about this?
Bobeye. He is the one whose forearms are very large in proportion to his body.

I wish there were more comedies like that - crossing over the political correctness line, but not over the line of good taste, so as to make a movie hard to watch.
The film is quite pointy, it is for a moderate audience and will make all kinds of extremists quite unhappy. The plot is well thought out and funny. It'll nail you to the screen.
I like the unorthodox character of this film, Sacha Baron Cohen's movies are definitely one of the kind. I wouldn't consider the humor crude, but it is certainly honest. Some of the unthinkable things you see are likely to have happened in reality.
