Get ready to laugh ʻtil it hurts with the uncensored cut, featuring never-before-seen footage, thatʼs “outrageous and shamefully funny!”*

First of all, I dont see why so many people have given this a bad review... You must know what you are getting into before you watch it. Obviously there will be racy situations, poor judgement, awkward moments, and be offensive. This movie is hilarious (to me) All you people who got offended watching to movie why didn't you just turn it off? Every time I go to the theater to watch one of his movies people always are walking out... I ask myself, why the heck did you come in the first place? Seriously, this movie is not for the easily offended.

Sacha Baron Cohen does a great acting job in his latest film, "The Dictator." The gags are mostly good and although some are tacky and racist (with a few being crude) it still held my attention on a very rough day for me because it works as a parody of dictatorships. There is little about the plot and the film that I can add to the reviews already posted here; but I can certainly vouch for other reviewers who write that the film is actually pretty good entertainment, a parody and nothing truly offensive even if Sacha Baron Cohen is very daring when it comes to topics for jokes and gags.

The plot is not terribly deep; but it moves along well and you shouldn't get bored. Sacha Baron Cohen (who plays the brutal dictator of the fictional, northern African country named Wadiya) surrounds himself with excellent actors all turning in convincing performances that make the film even funnier. Sir Ben Kingsley plays Tamir, the rightful heir to the dictatorship occupied by his apparently younger brother General Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen). Anna Faris is brilliant as Zoey, a Brooklyn, New York vegan small business food store owner who's liberal activism clashes sharply with Aladeen's "take no prisoners" and kill-`em-all policy whenever anyone disagrees with him. Nadal, a scientist ordered to create nuclear weapons for Wadiya, is well played by Jason Mantzoukas; his timing is just right and he supports Baron Cohen really well.

Soon after the film starts with some gags and basic introductions, General Aladeen is practically summoned to the United Nations. They want his assurance that he isn't developing nuclear weapons--otherwise they may use military force against Wadiya.

Wow! People get so bent over movies involving Sacha Baron Cohen! We all know that he's Julien, the king of the Lemurs in Madagascar, right? Ooops! People are going to start hating on those movies too. Worst movie ever seen, witnessed, heard of, acknowledged!!!!! Really? What vexes me the most is when imbiciles view a movie starring an actor that is risqué, demented, brash, socially-retarded, or villainously hilarious and then get all upset because they were insulted by the subject matter. Borat rings a bell. The Dictator is not The Notebook, it's not The Wizard Of Oz, and it certainly isn't anything Hitchcockian in nature. It's a Sacha (say it with me) Baron Cohen movie about a ridiculous dictator, General Haffaz Aladeen in Wadiya (a fictional country located in the Horn of Africa) who gets deposed while visiting NYC and the United Nations. It mocks leaders like Kim Jong-Il and Un and Muammar Gaddafi, Idi Amin, etc... On the run from people that want him dead, Aladeen runs into Zoey (Anna Farris) a hipy-dippy feminist organic green-grocer who seems to attract refugees like a magnet. Although Aladeen had no intention of making Wadiya democratic, he convinces Zoey that is his intention, but first he must get back into the UN before it's too late. This movie is funny on so many levels. Sure it mocks tender subjects, but they need to be mocked. Hilarious. Snappy. Chockful of subject matter that will make certain people stark raving mad. Like Borat, this movie pokes fun in all directions at once. Nothing is sacred. If you can't sit back and laugh at the scary, despicable world then you are way too uptight and a nice mindless action movie might go over nice with you instead. If you wanna laugh and you don't have a stick up your booty, enjoy another mischievous Sacha Baron Cohen movie.

Dig it!

For what it was, it was hilarious! A complete satire on terrorism and dictatorships. I feel this is a very underated movie and Sacha Baron Cohen has once again proved his comedic genius. This is one for the ages and will go down in history, like Dr. Strangelove. As for all the bad ratings, what can you say, true greatness is often misunderstood by the masses. Artistic Genius!

Hilarious film, not sure what the low star rating reviewers were expecting after Ali G and Borat. This is exactly what to expect from a Sacha Baron Cohen movie. Offensive, foul language and a bunch of laughs.
If you don't take life too seriously then definitely give this film a look, if you are offended easily then avoid this film.

Of the Sasha Baron Cohen movies this was my favorite! So many laugh out loud moments. It's low brow humor and don't expect any more but this one fits the bill. I am hoping Arab people take the caricature in good humor as there are more than enough hit you between the eyes at he West to keep balance. Long Live Blazing Saddles ! and The Producers !
