The Dictator is comedy at its broadest, but underneath the 'hilarious' beard and predictable September 11th gags lies a sharp script that attempts to aim lowbrow and highbrow at the same time - and almost pulls it off.
While [Sacha Baron Cohen's] latest, ultra-hyped effort The Dictator has its fair share of disgusting, gross-out moments, perhaps the biggest shock is that it actually has a decent story and engaging characters.
