The Dictator

Gen. Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) has ruled the oil-rich North African country of Wadiya since the age of six, when 97 stray bullets and a hand grenade killed his father in a hunting accident. After an assassination attempt takes the life of yet another body-double, Tamir (Ben Kingsley), Aladeen's uncle and most trusted adviser, convinces Aladeen to go to New York. Unfortunately, Aladeen has a less-than-friendly reception from exiled Wadiyans, who want their country freed from his despotic rule.

May 15, 2012 - Austin360.com | Austin American-Statesman - Matthew Odam

Sacha Baron Cohen, cinema's crown prince of over-the-top satire, returns to the big screen with another ridiculous and raunchy film that thumbs its nose at political correctness while lampooning societal ills.

Do not waste your money

This is was one of the dumbest movie I have seen in years. I like Cohen's other work Borat was hilarious, Bruno was not so bad but this movie completed sucked. It was worse than Adam Sandler's lamest flicks. My advice is to wait one week and get it from redbox with a 50% discount.
The two critics need to get their head examined.
