Una commedia demenziale e piuttosto stupida che con i suoi toni provocatori porta sicuramente qualche risata, ma nel complesso non lascia il segno.

The Dictator is hilarious. This movie has tons of laughs and is very good. This is the best Sacha Baron Cohen movie yet. I would suggest this movie.

I get it: americans are stupid and racist, there is no democracy and the world is shitty. Baron Cohen hammers this with the subtlety of a Jackhammer on crack. The film has its fun moments, which are then spoiled when they decide they have to explain every joke right after they say it, even if said joke is being said for the third time.
Example: The what is your name bit. He gives three or for times a name lifted from a sign from a restaurant. They show you the signs when entering the restaurant. He says the name (e.g. Employees Mustwashhands) and then they close up in on the sign. Then they do the same with other three signs. This kind of "milking the overexplained joke" is done again and again through all the film. So I'm pretty sure that the actual joke of The Dictator is Sacha Baron Cohen calling the viewer an idiot wile getting paid to do so.
Anna Faris is dreadful here and Kingsley is obviously there for a quick, effortless buck. Asif, though in short part is amusing.
Not worth the time.

Ummmm... So-so. Not Borat level comedy for sure.

Surprisingly nice! The humor is very good, and the facts that it clearly demonstrates how a dictator never knows how to love himself, and the rich life of having gold lamborghinis every day.

Not funny at all, not smart and Baron Cohen's accent is boring.

Very funny film. Doesn't exceed the brilliance of Borat but pushes better laughs that Bruno

A good occasionally funny comedy that wasnt't as funny as I hoped but I still enjoyed it, It's very racist and sometimes shocking, A few good laughs but if you dont like Sachas humour then this film isn't for you.

Seus momentos mais engraados remetem a Borat, mas o resto do roteiro bem irregular e sua estrutura frgil no colabora muito.
