Looking for a best way to do this

I was checking out script below

Get-ADObject -filter * -SearchBase $ou | Where {$_.distinguishedname -ne $ou.distinguishedname} keep getting error below

 Get-ADObject : Cannot validate argument on parameter 'SearchBase'. The argument is null. Provide a valid value for the argument, and then try running the command again.
At line:1 char:36
+ Get-ADObject -filter * -SearchBase $ou | Where {$_.distinguishedname  ...
+                                    ~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidData: (:) [Get-ADObject], ParameterBindingValidationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ParameterArgumentValidationError,Microsoft.ActiveDirectory.Management.Commands.GetADObject
