    "Oh, it's a girl. I'm sorry. Where's the trashcan?"
    (General Aladeen, incognito in New York, after delivering a baby.)

    As a fan of Sasha Baron Cohen, especially of Borat, but also of Ali G. and Brüno, i had to watch this movie. With success comes commercialization, and with commercialization often comes a decrease in quality. Compared to his earlier movies, instead of having candid camera situations with random Americans (or were some, or all of them actually staged?), this is…

    In its best moments The Dictator comes close to Borat but these moments are rare and long in between while Borat had me laughing hard most of the time.

    While the love story sucks big time, at least Aladeen still forces his voters with tanks to cast the right "democratic" vote.

    A good script... A fantastic main cast... Hillarious scenes! It's a bit too long, the supporting cast is part good, part weak and it's technically below average.

    Overall a good and funny film!

    "Why are you guys so anti-dictators? Imagine if America was a dictatorship. You could let 1% of the people have all the nation's wealth. You could help your rich friends get richer by cutting their taxes. And bailing them out when they gamble and lose. You could ignore the needs of the poor for health care and education. Your media would appear free, but would secretly be controlled by one person and his family. You could wiretap phones. You could…

    Bastante peor que Borat y Ali G. Los primeros 30 minutos bastante buenos, luego se convierte en cacota.

    Genral Admiral Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) has been ruling the Republic of Wadiya since he was seven years old. Whilst his people live in abject poverty, Aladeen is trying to create the ultimate WMD, in between playing ‘Munich Olympics’ on his Wii and paying to sleep with various celebrities. Ruthless, childish and incredibly insensitive, Aladeen is summoned to America to address the UN. Upon his arrival, a series of planned mishaps involving a corrupt CIA agent (a fabulous John C.…

    Usual Sacha Baron Cohen fayre, funny in places, doesn't push the boundaries as far as he could have but entertaining with a nice rant about american capitalism vs dictatorships...

    Larry Charles and Sacha Baron Cohen make a great team because Charles brings the “no hugging, no learning” principle of his Seinfeld writing to the aggressive scandal of Cohen's set-ups for subversive ridicule. Here employing the use of a scripted story and cast of knowing participants, we may miss the voyeuristic pleasure of seeing ignorant Americans unwittingly revealing their repugnance, but in its place is the chance for truly inspired comic minds to create great running gags, use a capable cast and fashion a tight, clear-eyed satire of biting relevance.

    Although it could have been funnier, The Dictator makes for a decent watch with some moments that were actually hilarious. Unfortunately, some of the supporting cast felt very wasted including John C. Reilly and Ben Kingsley and there were a few moments that just missed the mark completely. Besides that, I enjoyed The Dictator, even though it doesn't live up to the expectations that Sacha Baron Cohen set with Borat.

    3/5
