Directed by Larry Charles and co-written/produced by Sacha Baron. Sacha Baron Cohen plays a dictator of country called Wadiya. Previously I thought, Sacha Baron Cohen would surprise me with this film, although not as much as he did in all his earlier projects, yet this movie serves his good return. I don't care about kind of humor he applies on any issue, critical or normal; I always enjoy watching Sacha Baron Cohen movies. It's entertaining, it's gala in its own way. I simply loved cameo by one of my top-favorite actors 'Edward Norton'.
Could have gone without the love story.
Probably the worst of Sacha Baron Cohens "Sketch Movies".
Favorite Part: The speech was probably the only funny joke in this movie and it's a part of the trailer.

Even more than most recent comedies, seemed like they were making the whole thing up as they went. But a few big laughs.

"All in all, The Dictator is almost guaranteed to make you laugh, even if you take a sharp intake of a breath straight after. Its brand of comedy is close-to-the-bone, near-the-knuckle, but considering its a Sacha Baron Cohen film, what else did you expect? Mainstream comedies that deliver on the second part are becoming increasingly rare these days, so one that is genuinely funny and occasionally clever has got to be worth a shot."

A crass and crude comedy with a weak script (those endless anal and sex jokes) and only a handful of funny moments. Oh wait, that was "The Interview".
Still, "The Dictator" has so many horribly written and delivered jokes, that they cast a shadow over the many funny lines and the hilarious performance of Cohen, who depicts his tyrant as a doofus with too much power.
That is why I feel indecisive about "The Dictator". Cohen is great (especially in…

This is Sacha Baron Cohen's fourth feature film in which he has a leading role. Same director, Larry Charles, directed Borat and Brüno, and why no play the old success formula in this one as well, where the star this time is the Admiral General Aladeen. The plot is mainly about the dictator of the fictional Republic of Wadiya visiting the United State. Sacha Baron Cohen, with enlisted help of Anna Faris and Ben Kingsley, does what he usually does…
