A lot of the single lines, has already been used at different eventsduring promoting the movie.But I'll still recommend it. It's worth watching a single time. I justcame from the cinema, and 300 people in the auditorium were alllaughing at the same time. Sacha was all of the worlds dictatorsgathered in one person, where he use his power as a power extension fora small aladeen.I think it's cool that he dares to use his freedom of speech to makefun of a lot of different countries, both in the middle east and alsothe US, but at the same time take a moral stand against all theproblems in the world. Well, that's my opinion. And he does so in avery funny way.You'll have a fun evening, I promise you :)

As my title says, I watched this movie and did not laugh once. Not evena chuckle. I was going to give it one star instead of two, but I usedto really like Sacha Baron Cohen, so I had a change of heart, I guess.The humor in this movie just seemed really immature and stupid. I'm notsome prude that gets offended by crude humor, but there was just no witor originality in this film. Like I said, I loved Sacha Baron Cohen. Ithought da ali G show was hilarious and I loved borat. I think he doesgreat with his characters and in short skits. If I had to guess I thinkthe reason why this film flopped is because they tried to tie in somelame story line with the character. If wasn't candid like da ali g showor borat. I feel that if Sacha Baron Cohen was just goofing around,being his funny self and not trying to stick to some format or storyline it would've been much more funny and entertaining. Sacha BaronCohen, as a person and as the characters he makes up are hilarious.When he tries to get more involved beyond that and start writing moviescripts, well, I guess it just kind of goes stale. It's a shame,really.

If you've ever watched one of Sacha Baron Cohen's movies, you'reprobably already aware that his films don't generally sit well withgeneral audiences. His movies have a twisted sense of humor and atendency to push some buttons when touching on delicate subjects:racism and xenophobia in BORAT, homophobia in BRÃNO. There's a reasonCohen's movies never reach blockbuster status; they're not foreveryone. The average Cohen movie has a loose plot establish to carrythe film from start to finish, but consists of a series of skits orgags where Cohen brings his character into situations (mockumentarystyle) where he can bring out the worst in people while (sort of)making a point about prejudices or whatnot. Or sometimes just to messwith them. In this sense, THE DICTATOR is Cohen's most mainstream movieso far. He maintains his off-color sense of humor but the movie is moreaccessible to your average movie viewer. He's dropped the mockumentarystyle of his past two films and gone with a traditional narrativestructure. No more shaky hand-held camera either. No more hidden cameraor real-world participants caught in the middle. THE DICTATOR is areturn to normal movie structure with actual plot and characterdevelopment. It is the tale of Admiral General Aladeen (Cohen) of theAfrican nation Wadiya. The latest in a long tradition of Wadiyandictators, Aladeen is on the verge of developing nuclear weaponstechnology and the United Nation has taken notice. He travels to NewYork City to confront the U.N. when he is captured and replaced by aduplicate in a plot hatched by his closest adviser to control the fateof Wadiya. Alone in a strange place and surrounded by people who wouldsee him hang, Aladeen must regain control and ensure his beloved nationremains a dictatorship.I'm a fan of Cohen's movies. I loved BORAT and, even though BRÃNOwasn't as strong, I still really enjoyed it. At first I was bothered byCohen's shift to traditional filmmaking for THE DICTATOR, but then Iremembered watching BRÃNO in theaters and wondering if his mockumentaryshtick was getting old already. Fun as the movies are, there's only somuch you can do with them. Cohen and his co-writers kept the satireelements that made his other movies so funny and shifted gears and, forthe bulk of the movie, it works well. THE DICTATOR is a funny film withsome really hilarious moments. Cohen's latest character, AdmiralGeneral Aladeen, is his best since BoratÂ even if his character'slegendary beard was distractingly fake. I love that Cohen will markethis movies while remaining in character, and it's made even better whenfirst-rate icons of the news scene go along with the joke. There's agreat scene in the movie where Aladeen is doing an exclusive interviewwith Larry King; I love that King goes along with the gag. This moviecontinues to show that Cohen is one of the funniest comedians we've gotin modern movies, even if his particular brand doesn't sit well witheveryone. It blows my mind that he got Ben Kingsley to co-star in themovie as his trusted adviser Tamir. Kingsley strikes me as a higherclass of actor, so it's that much funnier when he tries to coax hisAladeen double in getting freaky with some gorgeous virgin bodyguards.John C. Reilly adds some laughs with a short bit as Aladeen'sprotection once he arrives in New York. I only wish he'd been a biggerrole in the movie.My only real complaint with the movie is the love interest, Anna Faris.Faris does her usual bit here (while somehow becoming less hot as aliberal green grocer) as Aladeen's love interest and the plot deviceused to give Aladeen access to the hotel where he can confront Tamirand his imposter. The whole subplot exists to give Aladeen a chance towonder if, maybe, democracy isn't so bad, but it slows down the moviein the middle. Whenever Cohen and Faris were together, I would getbored and wonder when we'd get to see Aladeen and his former nuclearexpert Nadal (Jason Mantzoukas) go off on their next harebrainedscheme. Even as the movie slows down in the center, it all comestogether for a great finale in the U.N. when Aladeen tries to convincethe world that, hey, dictatorships have their perks. The movie has it'sshare of misfires but the jokes hit more often than they miss, andCohen gets a chance to tease the American government a bit. It's all infun and turns out to be a pretty good time.

Before I went in the cinemas, I was sure of one thing - either thismovie was a full time pass or a pass for me - nothing in between. Itcame out to be a good surprise super time pass and I enjoyed it a lot.Of course, as goes with earlier movie most of the good scenes arealready shown in the trailer but this one sure has more than just whatwas shown in the promos.Timely punches were able to bind the movie together and keep meinterested. Ben Kingsley is so damn perfect for these cunning roles -similar to one done in Prince of Persia.I would suggest, go see this in a Sunday morning and have a good weekahead!

Quite Hilarious in some parts, also being very insulting and racist inthe other parts, along with the great funny acting and non-stopentertainment from Sacha Baron Cohen and the rest of the acting crew,The Dictator is a very funny movie which is quite perfect for time-passand having a good entertainement of 90 minutes which will surely makeyou enjoy it and make you laugh very much from the very start to thelast.The Story which is written by Sacha Baron Cohen, Alec Berg, DavidMandal and Jeff Schaffer, is about an cruel and funny dictator AdmiralGeneral Alladin(Sacha) in the country of Wadiya who rules the countryby his own rules and regulations and thus is questioned by the UN tostop this dictatorship and is invited to visit America where he doesgo. But after going there he gets kidnapped by a man and after his bodydouble gets his place and is being controlled by his Uncle Tamir(BenKingsley), he must find a way to get his place back and save Wadiyafrom being a democratic country.Sacha Baron Cohen is the vocal point of this movie and the movie isextremely funny because of his antics in it by being an IdioticDictator Admiral Alladin who is cruel but lonely and dumb at the sametime and his antics in this movie are really funny but a lot ofinsulting has been done in this movie to a number of celebrities. BenKingsley also did a fine job by portraying Tamir who is Alladin's slyuncle who is trying to get everything to himself by kidnapping Alladin.Jason Mantzoukas also did a funny and fine job as Nadal who is ascientist in Alladin's Nuclear Bomb Creation Centre.The Director Larry Charles has done a decent job with his crew but tobe honest Sacha Baron Cohen made this movie his own right from thebeginning to the end and has really put in a lot of work to make thismovie. Although the director managed his crew well and did well withthe more inexperienced actors and staff. The music in this movie wasquite funny and the Arabian music used in it is quite unique and isfunnily synchronized with the sequences.The Story in this movie is a fresh one and unique and this moviealthough being a bit of a slapstick movie, nevertheless manages to makeyou laugh and enjoy it from the beginning much to the antics of SachaCohen, But this movie is really Insulting to many celebrities and otherrespected people around the world and Its very controversial, but itsgood to see that all the celebrities did not get offended. Otherwisethis portrayel of this crazy dictator is quite superbly shown.Well, This movie is definitely a much watch for comedy movie lovers andis a good movie for time-pass for anyone which will entertain anyoneand also Sacha Baron Cohen's antics throughout the movie along with theacting of the supporting cast will surely make you laugh throughout themovie, therefore this one can be watched for time-pass andentertainment.My Rating: 6.5/10

Upon going to see Cohen's new film, I like many others may have beenexpecting a similar experience to Borat. However this is an easymistake to make and many made the same mistake with the release ofBruno. So my first advice is try to withdraw yourself from thinkingthat The Dictator will be anything like Borat. But don't be to put off,The Dictator is a good comedy film overall, but 'good' is the bestadjective for it.Again as predicted Cohen produces below the belt humour that will havean audience trying not to laugh at controversial topics but the mainnarrative of the film is a real let down. Both Borat and even Bruno toan extent have a purpose for the main character, but in The Dictator'Aladeens' story is a little too far-fetched and leave's youdisconnected with the character. Despite this there are still some realfunny moments and the idea on the whole is good but it's not executedas well as previous Sacha Baron Cohen productions.So if you do watch the Dictator, don't expect Borat, don't expect apurpose, think of it as one long sketch with a few laughs here andthere.
Movie_Muse_Reviews (11 May 2013)
Good day, democratic imbeciles. You first knew him as a Kazakh newsreporter, then as an Austrian fashionista. Now, dedicated charactercomedian Sacha Baron Cohen plays a North African fascist in "TheDictator". The journey of Admiral General Aladeen is unlike hispredecessors in that it's not done in a mockumentary style. So, howdoes this change the actor's shtick?The use of a traditional story (and those words aren't being usedlightly Â it's cookie-cutter) attempts to mainstream Cohen's brand ofhumor, whether that was a conscious choice or not. The pop-culturereferences are a bit more frequent, the potty humor dialed up and theshock gags not as inspired as say, two grown men wrestling naked andchasing each other through a hotel. All the same, Cohen's trademarksare still there, from ignorance-based jokes to thoughtful satire.The writing team that assisted Cohen with the screenplay consists ofthree "Curb Your Enthusiasm" writers, one of which is Jeff Schaffer,who wrote "Bruno." These folks are all familiar with a looser narrativestyle, in which the story builds around the jokes. Even director LarryCharles (producer on "Curb"), who did "Bruno" and "Borat," hasessentially no typical storytelling experience. As with any film with aplot simply meant to string together a necklace of gags, the individualjokes are forced to carry the film and the results are hit and miss.Aladeen is a great deal more unpredictable than Cohen's previouscharacters. You never know if you're going to get the poor idiotroutine a la "Borat" or the strong-willed dictator used to getting hisway. It keeps you on your toes, but feels less complete and ultimatelyless lovable. It also doesn't help that the plot has him trying tothwart his brother's (Ben Kingsley) plan to turn Wadiya into ademocracy. That said, Cohen most definitely wants make you feeluncomfortable rooting for a character who yearns to oppress his peopleonce again.Capped off by a simple yet brilliant speech about all the thingsAmerica could do if it were a dictatorship, Cohen's commentary hitssome strong notes during the film, even if it doesn't compare to theeye-opening methods of his first two, especially "Borat." For the mostpart, however, the script focuses on making sure no minority loses outon some form of a jab.Yet for all the genuinely creative jokes, like a misinterpretedhelicopter ride over New York City, "The Dictator" relies a bit toomuch on sight gags, like a man yanked out of a bathroom mid-urinationor the milking of a woman's breasts. It's just stupider than "Borat"and "Bruno", and with that track record in mind, you're just kind ofstunned when an obvious attempt to get laughs draws silence.Fortunately the hits outweigh the misses, but when your story isn't allthat interesting, the misses start to stand out.Given the array of recognizable cast members, "The Dictator" is alsomuch more of an ensemble effort, but it is definitely Cohen's show. Thecasting of Kingsley proves wasteful unless it was to make the pointthat Kingsley can play any race or religion, but his collaboration withCohen on "Hugo" is the likely explanation. Anna Faris tries to add someheart as a semi-butch super-organic shop owner, but she's drasticallyunderutilized for someone as funny as she has proved to be. The biggestsupporting highlights come courtesy Jason Mantzoukas (Rafi on FX's TheLeague), who plays the perfect foil to Cohen because he's given everyopportunity to call Aladeen out on his stupidity.Unsurprisingly, the bar Cohen set with "Borat" will sour people on "TheDictator". You want to walk out of one of his comedies feelingchallenged and pushed further than you ever expected (in terms ofentertainment), whereas the tone of "The Dictator" is clever, butresonates as mostly silly.As far as the "traditional comedy" experiment goes, next time (assumingthere is one) Cohen and Charles should try working with a storystructure at least resembling more of a mockumentary, evenÂdare IsayÂfound footage. It does not have to go back down the road of ropingin real people, but Cohen benefits from that touch of realism.The results of attempting to translate Cohen's style to therise-and-fall format suggest that his brand of comedy needs more spaceto breathe. The sketches and bits need time to develop organically,without an obligation to a through plot line. Fortunately, there'senough successful humor here to see Cohen through until the nextridiculous character.~Steven CThanks for reading! Visit moviemusereviews.com

Sacha Baron Cohen makes the funniest movies of all time and this wasthe case here. It really got me to laugh nearly constantly throughoutthe whole movie. No other movies has come close to doing that. It isnot necessarily extremely witty rather it is in your face stupid, overthe top, politically incorrect and raunchy slapstick but I absolutelylove that.The key word is "I". It was MY brand of humor and really made ME laughand that is why I loved it. This humor is definitely not for mostpeople. Not because it is too raunchy or over the top (not too much isthese days) but because some people don't find it as amusing as I do.And if you aren't going to laugh at this movie there isn't a whole lotof redeemable features. You are not going for the interesting plot, thecharacter creation, cinematography or mood. You are going to laugh yourbrains out at stupid/raunchy over-the-top humor. Its hard to rate thismovie because it was not technically a great movie but it was a laughfest for me personally. If you find his stuff funny its worth going to.Its a little less satirical than some of his other movies since thismovie was scripted as opposed to the improv created when one of hiszany character goes over to random, unsuspecting people and filmingthese people's reactions to the zany character. Usually these randompeople's souls are being satirized which is actually quite anintelligent, statement making brand of humor. Despite being scriptedThe Dictator was funny and made a few statements.

Right from the start, you knew this film would make the line betweendecency and crudeness look like a dot with its 'in memory of' tribute,and it doesn't come up for air throughout.But that's in the DNA of a SBC production, right? We have known foryears that political correctness is off the table whenever you hear SBCis involved. And that was exactly why I went to see this film. Iwanted, and expected, to see something which refused to adhere to anyboundaries.Anybody with this attitude will fall about in the aisles watching this.Anybody naÃ¯ve enough to think this might be the SBC production to breakthe mould of those gone before will give this film a 1-5 rating, andshouldn't have bothered paying. It's like going to see an installmentof the Saw franchise and criticising the non-stop violence. You knowit's coming, so don't be critical when it does. Enjoy it for what itis, an achingly funny movie
Curtis Spencer Denny (10 May 2013)
This movie is a complete change of format for Cohen's film style sincemockumentary's Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make BenefitGlorious Nation of Kazakhstan and BrÃ¼no. Was it a logical step for hisfilms to take or is it just one step that never needed to be taken? Ali G Indahouse: The Movie is similar where genre is concerned, butthat came after two seasons of Da Ali G Show so we had time tofamiliarize ourselves with the character Cohen was mocking in the firstplace. Aladeen in The Dictator didn't seem to have the same sort ofcharacter progression so I watched this latest addition inline-crossing impersonations with a different frame of mind. BecauseCohen had such success with Borat and BrÃ¼no, it seems bizarre to moveback to the commonplace comedy genre. It may have had morebelievability if Cohen wasn't the actor. If he had stepped aside, letsomeone else act and set up a back-story where he actually found thisdictator and wanted to make a documentary about him, it may have drawnme in more than it did then. But I guess only Cohen can play hischaracters like he does. But, he may have just wanted to make a funnymovie, not believable, just relatable to what western people understandabout real dictators of the world.As a comedy though, I can't say I was in stitches. Some of thecharacters are hilariously stupid, the usual crude displays andattempts at offensive humour are all there, and the grand scale ofAladeen's arrogance is funny but tapers off at an alarming pace. Itseemed to lose track after he went to America where they clearingwanted Aladeen to change his ways and fall in love with literally thepolar opposite of him. The romantic plot point takes up most of themovie and becomes his motivation in his final (well put) speech. I'dlike to believe a few of the jokes are unscripted.To wrap up, fans of Cohen's work may be disappointed that he's toorecognizable to continue fooling Americans into thinking he's reallysome wacky foreign guy. But it's something Cohen can't really avoid,and I can appreciate that he wants to make new characters but perhapsthis type of film is what Cohen will now be limited to. For now, we canlook curiously look forward to his portrayal of Freddie Mercury.
lagudafuad (10 May 2013)
Same old thing all over again, crude comedy, racial jokes, stereotypingand all that; seen Borat seen 90% of the movie already. There are someparts that made me laugh though but I am too ashamed to say where.Baron Cohen based his performance primarily on the Libyan dictatorMuammar Gaddafi.The movie is a mockmentary of a North African Dictator and the linesare fun to hear if you don't mind racial comments, also the speech ofthe Dictator Admiral General Hafez Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) at theend of the movie was, if I have to say so myself memorable.The movie was shot in Seville and on the island of Fuerteventura,Spain, and Baron Cohen said the United Nations refused to let him shootscenes inside the UN Headquarters.The plot is as simple as all other Cohen movies are, a man from adifferent culture and different background Aladeen travels to Americaand finds in himself in an environment that is not favorable to hisexistence. There is a love story intertwined in this plot and a niceending to it too.Now as for acting and directing and everything you want to look for ina good movie, just forget it nothing to write about at all, all I cansay is, if you don't mind crude humor, racial jokes and abuse of powerthen you will like me lol through the movie.But if you are not a fan of the above mentioned and you like a moviewith a strong plot, then I advice you don't bother seeing this movie.
gerd86 (08 May 2013)
We watched the entire movie without even grinning once. It is not evenremotely funny. The jokes are distasteful and lack every and anyhumour. It even jokes about the Munich massacre of 1972. That is notfunny, that is disrespectful and in poor taste. The acting is awful; itmakes you wonder if these people had any training in acting at all. Themovie has many distasteful scenes. Also, it portrays stereotypes in away that is very worrying. Our advice: throw it in the trash. Do notwatch this. It is no fun to watch and a complete waste of time and ofall that money, which could have been spent so much better. This movieonly makes you feel bad about the extremely low standards in movieworld.
deatman9 (07 May 2013)
The only reason im giving this a five is because it had 3 moments thatreally were laugh out loud funny. The rest however was boring andpainful unfunny. They make jokes that try to be hilarious and miss themark completely.This movie is about a dictator of madiya(a fictional country in themiddle east). He is a brutal dictator so all his right hand men schemeup a plan to overthrow him and usher in a new age of democracy.Besides for those 3 moments I mentioned above this movie is not funnyat all. I loved borat and like bruno and this does not even compare.Cohen should have just made another one like borat and bruno.
PWNYCNY (05 May 2013)
Despite the raunchy humor and the shallowness of the story, this is afunny movie. It produces a lot of laughs and some scenes are evenhilarious. The problem is that the story stereotypes an entire ethnicgroup, which some could find offensive. Ethnic humor can be cruel anddivisive, and when the laughter is at the expense of a certain group,can cease to be entertaining. It is apparent that the movie producerhas certain biases which quickly become obvious through the principalcharacter whose ethnic and cultural affiliation is unmistakable. Whencomedy is used to mock an entire group, the results can be hollow. Onceagain, this movie is funny and it does make the audience laugh. But bewarned: the movie could offend some, and for those who are offended,the movie may not be funny.
Boba_Fett1138 (04 May 2013)
Seriously, I love Sacha Baron Cohen as both a comedian and actor and Iam actually still convinced of it that he will win an Oscar some daybut this movie unfortunately was a big misstep.Lets be honest. Is this movie in essence any better than a Ben Stiller,Adam Sandler or even Rob Schneider flick? In my opinion absolutely not!It suffers from the exact same problems and comedy-wise they have justabout as many hits and misses in them.It is simple; this movie its foremost problem is really its script.It's actually shockingly weak and simplistically written. First of all,it isn't being original enough in any way and second, the way itprogresses is all extremely predictable. Nothing in this movie happensas a surprise but what is maybe even more disappoint and troubling isthat the movie is lacking edge and punch. It's actually a pretty tamemovie, by normal Sacha Baron Cohen standards, even though its conceptand main character all sounds like something potentially offensive andpolitically incorrect. However I feel that nothing about this movieworks out as anything offensive or edgy and Sacha Baron Cohen is simplyjust playing a comical character, that is way over-the-top and relieson written material, rather than Cohen's improvisation skills.It really is a movie with more misses than hits in it, comedy-wise. Andwhen it hits, it doesn't ever hit very hard. There are some mild laughsbut that's about all I could get out of this movie.I don't even feel that Sacha Baron Cohen plays a very good character inthis case. It's a character that is way too over-the-top but yet hestill never goes far enough with it. Aladeen is never really beingcruel or threatening enough. His actions are just simply stupid andignorant, in a childish kind of way.The movie is never anything annoying or truly horrible to watch butstill there is no good reason why you should ever go watch it, in thefirst place.5/10 http://bobafett1138.blogspot.com/

"You lied to me and your wanted for war crimes!" General AdmiralAlladeen (Cohen) has the perfect life. He is the dictator of an oilrich country and all he has to do is make a signal and people die. Heis a multiple gold medal winning athlete and can pretty much butwhatever or whoever he wants. When he refuses to let UN inspectors intohis country to look for weapons the US threatens attacks. While in NewYork to talk to the UN his second in command tries to have him killedand institute democracy in his country. Alladeen tries everything tomake sure that doesn't happen. I have to say that I think Cohen is theAndy Kaufman of this generation. His comedy is the type where it makesyou a little uncomfortable and you laugh but also wish he would stopand that you never saw it. If you have seen "Borat" you know what Imean. For me he is usually a little too much and crosses the line fromfunny to obscene. I didn't think that "Bruno" was that funny and inthat one he seemed to just try and make people mad more then laugh. Allthat said this is far and away his best movie. There are the scenes inthis where you laugh as you look away and thing you laugh at that youknow you shouldn't but for the most part this is pretty mainstream (forhim). I will say this is not for the easily offended though but thereare some really really funny lines in this. This is another movie whereif you like Cohen you will watch and if you don't you won't but this ishis best movie so far and more like "Borat" then "Bruno". Overall, veryvery funny, somewhat offensive but I think very much worth watching. Ilaughed really hard many times. I give it a B+.
Cameron Potter (02 May 2013)
It would stand to reason that a lot of people dislike this humor orjust don't get it. But i believe this to be one the best joke films forwhile with little comments at many dictators and there many(personality quirks). The film had a sense of real world impact youjust don't get without a good director who knows good timing. But ialso felt the story made the comedy hazy with a love story and a weirdending but the comedy is there and its well written with non of thejokes being forced or out of place. so all in all great film. the lovescenes in the film were boring but they did not occur often and maybecould have been removed altogether and a better more funny plot devisedbut it served to lead the story and was only really present in the 3/4of the film which as the only real downfall of the film it can beeasily overlooked.
shood321 (02 May 2013)
The Dictator is one of the top-10 worst movies I have ever seen. Weleft in the middle of this dreadful creation. Bathroom humor is finebut the gratuitous, sophomoric filth was over the top.How Ben Kingsley could have lowered himself to this level isastonishing. One of the best actors of a generation has gone from anAcademy Award winning portrayal of one of mankind's greatestcharacters, Ghandi, to a film that could have been produced by acollege fraternity. Borat was great and Bruno was good, but Cohen jumped the shark with TheDictator.
