About the Movie

Featuring never-before-seen footage, thatʼs outrageous and shamefully funny!

Stuck in New York and stripped of his power, Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) is finally forced to live his ultimate nightmare…the American dream. *Original theatrical version banned in Malaysia, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Korea, and Uzbekistan.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film has a vicious edge that the Marx Brothers didn't have, and it's too low-minded to achieve their enchanting blend of anarchy and surrealism. – David Denby, New Yorker, May 29, 2012

Rotten: Now [Cohen is] turning material both fresh and rancid into tepid gruel. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2012

Fresh: Underrated comic excellence from Sacha Baron Cohen with plenty of sharp satire lacing the broader gross-out gags. – Catherine Bray, Film4, Mar 4, 2013

Fresh: The film's writers understand that satire is infinitely more powerful when it's accessible – Charlie Lyne, Ultra Culture, Dec 26, 2012

Another stupid movie by cohen,

I don't know how cohen gets away with making stupid movie, after stupid movie? yet, they keep right on coming, i am assuming that the people who buy these movies are the same people that voted obama in office? anyone that purchases a cohen movie needs to have their voting rights stripped from them, and be sterilized, this movie was as bad as the rest i have seen, if it was not for my idiot roommate renting these movies, i would not have ever had the misfortune to experience them, don't waste your money, the movie stinks,

pretty good for trash

I think this movie is pretty good for being trash.

Attention all Haters

You guys are a lot of dicks. Stop acting like you know some much about politics cause you don't.
