    The Dictator (2012)

    "The Dictator" 10 Scale Rating: 4.0 (Bad) ...

    The Good: A handful amusing moments dripping with sarcasm and satire. The set up is a funny one and the political commentary wasn't subtle, which made it all the more entertaining. This isn't the sort of movie that Ben Kingsley usually does, but he was excellent as the villain.

    The Bad: Just far too many penis and body hair jokes. They went to that well way too many times. Cohen was game as always, but several jokes fell short and failed to hit the mark. It just wasn't as hilarious as it should have been.
