The Dictator Reviews
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.
