The new movie from the director of Borat looks absolutely hilarious

Boasting a pretty unforgettable title, this could become the comedy of 2023.

A first trailer has hit the web for Dicks: The Musical, the new comedy movie from Borat and Curb Your Enthusiasm director Larry Charles.


Based on the off-Broadway musical F*****g Identical Twins from Josh Sharp and Aaron Jackson, the pair star in the film as two self-obsessed businessmen who learn they are actually long-lost identical twins.

Following the discovery, the estranged brothers decide to come together to plot the reunion of their eccentric divorced parents (Megan Mullally and Nathan Lane).

Described by its distributor A24 - who have been behind several modern classics including Everything Everywhere All At Once and Hereditary - as "riotously funny and depraved", Dicks: The Musical also stars SNL's Bowen Yang and rapper Megan Thee Stallion.

And as you can probably guess from the title, the movie is aimed squarely at adults - having already been handed an R rating in the US for "strong crude sexual content, graphic nudity, pervasive language and brief drug use".


The film does not have an Irish release date but will be released over in the States on 29 September.
