One of the funniest movies I know! There are so many good jokes based on what's happening in the world. If you read the news on a daily basis and know what's going on in the world you'll like this movie. Some people may not like Cohen but I think he's a genius. It really takes something to show the problems that we have in a funny way. However you should really go and watch that movie, it's worth the money. I personally watched it twice in theater. Now I really don't know what to write anymore without giving away any jokes because the jokes come one after another. I <more>
was already laughing out loud after one minute. It's really cool if you watch a movie in theater and everyone in the room is laughing. So my definitive final conclusion is that The Dictator is more than a movie, it's an experience ;
I wish there were more comedies like that - crossing over the political correctness line, but not over the line of good taste, so as to make a movie hard to watch.The film is quite pointy, it is for a moderate audience and will make all kinds of extremists quite unhappy. The plot is well thought out and funny. It'll nail you to the screen.I like the unorthodox character of this film, Sacha Baron Cohen's movies are definitely one of the kind. I wouldn't consider the humor crude, but it is certainly honest. Some of the unthinkable things you see are likely to have happened in <more>
This movie was absolutely dirty, offensive, hilarious, racist, and crazy over-the-top moments. It's about the same style as Sacha Baron Cohen's previous movies, but it's done much better. Cohen plays a silly ruthless dictator named Admiral General Aladeen. He is very anti-semitic and plans on creating nuclear weapons. He hates the very idea of democracy. While on his way to the United Nations, he's betrayed and shaven so no one would recognize him. He's taken in by Zoey, a vegan hippie, and gives him a job at her store. Will Aladeen make it to the U.N. to stop democracy <more>
from coming to his country, or will Zoey change his heart? I would definitely recommend THE DICTATOR!!!
Hilarious and boldly funny, amazingly amazing, cultural references were perfect this time, the jokes can make you pee your pants, I went to see the World premiere held at Glasgow Cineworld and I am glad that I did, as you may have seen the trailers the film is a must watch.Spoiler Alert - Baron Cohen plays General Aladeen, the tyrannical ruler of the oil-rich north African rogue state Wadiya, who is intensely irritated by the western powers' infatuation with the Arab spring. This political annoyance is compounded by the stress of having to keep Osama Bin Laden in one of the spare rooms in <more>
his obscenely opulent palace after the Americans took out one of the al-Qaida leader's doubles.He exerts a grotesque, Orwellian power and abolishes hundreds of words in the Adiyan dictionary, insidiously eroding his people's moral sense by replacing "positive" and "negative" with "Aladeen", leading to tense moments in the Wadiyan HIV clinics.His confrontation with Washington has reached a crisis after a speech in which he announced Wadiya was just months away from enriching uranium, and then corpsed and giggled uncontrollably when trying to claim that this was for "clean energy purposes".In fact, Aladeen is obsessed with nuclear capability and succumbs to Freudian rage at the thought of not having a big missile. "Everyone has one," he screams, "even Ahmadinejad and he looks like a snitch from Miami Vice!" There is a horribly funny scene in which Aladeen confronts his nuclear scientist about slow progress and reveals his assumptions about rockets and warhead delivery systems are based entirely upon cartoons.but as I said , you have got to watch it to see if you pee your pants from laughter..!!!!
THE DICTATOR one of the films I was desperately waiting this year opens with a picture of Kim Jong-il North Korea's "eternal leader" and the legend "in loving memory of" as you know, he passed away less than a year ago . This certainly lead you to think something like "Sacha, you've done it again, you crazy motherf*****!" It is not his most daring effort though â€“ arguably, nothing dealing with the mock of a dictator can be seen as something shocking ever since Saddam Hussein appeared as a gay and vulgar cartoon in the SOUTH PARK movie almost 15 <more>
years ago . Hell, Trey Parker and Matt Stone gave also the "royal treatment" to Kim Jong-il in their TEAM AmericaÂ… and a little-known filmmaker named Charlie did too a brilliant take on a little-known dictator named Adolf back in the early forties. Anyway, Cohen is taking inspiration from Libya's former dictator Gaddafi Cohen's character, the childish dictator Aladeen, is from a country called Wadiya and of course from Trey Parker/Matt Stone and Chaplin â€“ if we had in TEAM America a puppet Kim Jong-il singing a song about how lonely he was, here we have, for instance, Aladeen feeling a bit lonely after not being able to convince Megan Fox to spend the night with him. And Cohen is doing a THE GREAT DICTATOR thing: playing two psychical identical characters you gotta love Aladeen's double . At the time same, THE DICTATOR is pure Cohen. It seemed that this was his sort-of different project, his big-budget picture with nothing "real" and the participation of famous actors like Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, the already mentioned Megan Fox and *spoiler alert* Edward Norton. However this is a film with a big trip to America â€“ if you have seen BORAT and BRUNO, you know what I mean. This time Cohen goes for a romantic comedy feel â€“ Aladeen falls for a woman and the thing becomes real, unlike Borat's thing with Pamela Anderson! Picture Cohen's take on romantic comediesÂ… yeah, there's pretty f***** up material, as absurd as hilarious. In fact, the film is hilarious in all of its facets, with jokes that are instant classics. Cohen's third collaboration with Larry Charles is the best comedy of the year; and nothing comes close, really. *Watched it on 29 August, 2012
The Dictator I saw this movie a couple of hours a go, and i loved it!A dictator faces the taste of real life when he is forced out of power.The Pluses: Sacha Baren Cohen, The chopper scene, the restaurant scene, the montage of him working at the store, the political humor/theme, and Anna faris.The Minuses: Too short, some scenes were crude less than Borat or Bruno, but avoid in front of family some scenes in trailer were missing from film.Overall, The DICTATOR will make you laugh, and will make you feel disgusted. This is an R Rated movie so be aware. 9/10
Woody Allen, Peter Sellers, Sacha Baron Cohen (by Br007)
The non-stop jokes, off-color humor, slapstick and under 90 minute running time of "The Dictator" hearkens back to early Woody Allen gems like "What's Up Tiger Lily," "Take The Money and Run," "Bananas," and "Love and Death. And, in the world of comedy, that's quite a compliment.Like Cohen, Allen's first films were often misunderstood. Some folks just did not get the joke. Many still don't get it today. The object of comedy has always been to take down the high and mighty by whatever means necessary. And, if you happen to be a <more>
Middle Eastern despot, you will find much to be offended by here. But, as Allen often did as well, Cohen uses racial and gender stereotypes to shine a light on people's attitudes, and that's likely to put off others as well. That's fine. Some comedy just isn't for everyone.While his writing style owes much to Allen, his acting chops are also influenced heavily by one of Britain's greatest comics, Peter Sellers. You can see it in his outrageous accents and in his ridiculous pratfalls. Like Sellers, Cohen is fearless in his characterizations and, again, like Sellers, there will be those who will take offense in this. Again, not for everyone. But, if you laughed your butt off at Sellers' simpleton Indian character destroying a Hollywood party, you will be laughing here too.And that's what we're talking about; laughs. Not every joke works. Many fall flat. But the film starts off fast and furious with a rapid succession of gags, most of which work hilariously, settles down for a bit and then takes off again, literally. His verbal sparring with co-star Jason Mantzoukas is one of the highlights as are many of the fun cameo appearances and a running joke about his name that I will not reveal here. There are many great sight gags that are easily missed and the appearance of his Efawadh character at the U.N. channels a scene right out of Allen's "Sleeper." There's a few scatological and sex jokes also one about excrement, one about urination, one about masturbation, several about body parts , and these, if you ask me, are the low point of the film except a child birth scene that's as funny as it is outrageous . But, the bodily fluid gags, so rampant in comedy films today, are actually few and far between. And there's a bit of a message, too.We're not dealing with "Citizen Kane" here. But, then, this film made me laugh much more.
Just been to see this film and could never stop laughing. Sacha Baron Cohen is a true comedic talent...an excellent writer as the jokes in it are genius. The film is short but packed full of laughter. Perhaps I'm an easy laugher, but what can I say, I liked it!!! A LOT!!! As well as the comedy being brilliant, the actual plot/storyline is superb also. From watching the trailer, and then watching the film, it was actually a completely different story to how I thought it was going to be. I wasn't very excited to see the film after the trailers, but decided to venture in... I enjoyed it <more>
much more than I expected and will likely see it again! It isn't for the easily-offended but if this is your sort of humor then you need to go and watch it now!
One of the Funniest and Most Intelligent Criticisms I Have Ever Seen in Many Years (by claudio_carvalho)
When the UN threatens the nuclear program of the Republic of Wadiya, the dictator Hafez Aladeen Sacha Baron Cohen decides to go to New York to make a speech in the assembly. However, his minister Tamir Ben Kingsley is plotting a scheme to topple Aladeen and sign multimillionaire contracts with foreign oil companies to make him a tycoon.Tamir hires the torturer Clayton John C. Reilly to kill Aladeen, but he fails and the dictator flees without his long beard. Aladeen unsuccessfully tries to reach the Lancaster Hotel and he meets the owner of the store of natural products Zoey Anna Faris <more>
, who is protesting against the presence of Aladeen in UN. She believes that he is Allison Burgers, a refugee from Wadiya and brings Aladeen to her store to help him to cater the hotel. He stays with her while he tries to find a means to break in the hotel with his comrade Nadal Jason Mantzoukas .The politically incorrect "The Dictator" is one of the funniest and most intelligent criticisms I have ever seen in many years. Sacha Baron Cohen is hilarious in the role of a dictator and only his speech in the United Nation explaining what a dictatorship is to people used to "democracy" makes the movie worth. But there are several other jokes that made me laugh most of the time. Further the cameos are also a great attraction, especially Megan Fox in the role of herself. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "O Ditador" "The Dictator"
