Stuck in New York and stripped of his power, Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) is finally forced to live his ultimate nightmare...the American dream. Get ready to laugh with the extended cut, featuring never-before-seen footage that's outrageous and shamefully funny.

Cohen's performance borrows heavily from Borat. The difference between Aladeen and Borat boils down to wit. Aladeen is just as bumbling and incompetent at times, especially when forced to work a mundane job. Unlike Borat, Aladeen is full of put-downs and retorts, spending most of the film berating or insulting someone. Amid our fearful, politically correct times, this kind of humour that insults all sides equally is most welcome.
The plot expands the wit by showing Aladeen to actually be much more effective when taking charge of the co-operative he works for. Aladeen is brutal and unpleasant. He gets the job done. The Dictator savagely skewers the utopian notion that we are all the same.
The unchecked power of dictatorship leads Aladeen into trouble.Read more ›
As for the plot - as entertainment it's hilarious in my view. The acting is great (quite a few stars in this film). Some of the lines make me laugh when I reflect on the film. In addition the soundtrack to this film is fantastic; Popular pop/R n B songs sung in a different language and this adds to the whole entertainment of the film. Very cleverly done!
Overall I don't find this film as having as many cringe moments as Borat. I would definitely watch this film again. Moreover I would recommend this film for anyone who appreciates the work of Sacha Baron Cohen, anyone who is in the mood for watching an hilarious comedy and for anyone who enjoys the genre of satire. I have awarded The Dictator five stars because it's a great film and nothing could be altered or changed to make it any better - perfect comedy!
The plot is quite simple, Sacha Baron Cohen plays the eccentric dictator of the North African nation of Wadiya, Aladeen. While his 2nd in command who should had been the next in line to the throne, Tamir (Ben Kingsley -Gandhi), plots to overthrow him. As his latest assassination attempt fails , Tamir decides to take Aladeen out of his comfort zone to America, to address the United Nations, and have him assassinated there, while Aladeen's double will make Wadiya a democracy on World T.V & profit from the oil rights himself. But things don't go quite to plan, as a de-bearded Aladeen runs amok in New York to great comical ends, in a life affirming experience as he meets & falls in love with the beautiful hairy boy child Zoey (Anna Faris -Scary Movie). Comedy & mayhem ensue as Aladeen runs into people with totally different beliefs to his own.
Overall i found The Dictator to be an hilarious movie with many comedy set pieces, i felt offended & shocked in places but i couldn't help but laugh, although some of the jokes fell flat, like the Wadiya meaning of positive & negative for example. On the flip side it was very clever & great satire on real life.Read more ›

This was very funny but not quite as good as The Many adventures of Eunice Caketin.Published 11 days ago by paul whiter
I'm sorry. I only gave the film 40 minutes. It was absolute rubbish. I had one brief titter at the start and then nothing. I love Sacha Baron Cohen normally but this was garbage.Published 1 month ago by Schoon
