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.
Rotten: Now [Cohen is] turning material both fresh and rancid into tepid gruel.
Fresh: Underrated comic excellence from Sacha Baron Cohen with plenty of sharp satire lacing the broader gross-out gags.
Fresh: The film's writers understand that satire is infinitely more powerful when it's accessible
Silly beyond words and a perfect escape after a difficult day. Watch it when you're at your worst, hate everyone and everything around you, and you'll be better off because of it ...
A good movie
Well yeah some parts were pretty funny but the majority were not. Sacha Baron Cohen doesn't disappoint as The Dictator, in fact, he nails the part beautifully, but the movie was so rushed that I didn't get to enjoy it. The plot was fine, nothing wrong worth it, but like I said, they did not go into detail about anything. Some off the jokes were just plain awkward and unfunny. At some points no one at my screening laughed. Automatically what makes "The Dictator" less amusing then "Borat" or "Bruno," was that this is an actual film, not a 'hidden camera' sorta thing, so to speak. Now yes, rent it, I do not recommend buying. Again, it's not bad, but it wasn't near my expectations...
