More Info:
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The Dictator, for all its liberal leanings, doesn't let anyone off the hook, not even well-intentioned liberals. Cohen comes right out and says things that most of us, in polite conversation, wouldn't dare. He knows it's the impolite conversation that really gets things moving.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Scott Tobias

    The Dictator keeps the gags coming as fast as it can manage, sometimes in big gross-out setpieces like an impromptu baby delivery, but more often in the general fusillade of hit-or-miss jokes that hit at a better-than-average rate.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Transitioning back into a scripted dynamic after his quasi-documentary performance excursions with "Bruno" and "Borat," Baron Cohen loses none of his edge, combining slapstick inspiration and social commentary into a hilariously provocative blend.

  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    The easily offended will be appalled. The rarely offended may be appalled. But they'll have to stop laughing long enough to realize it.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Even the stoniest face will crack when Aladeen sums up our cultural moment in a rousing, uproarious climactic speech worthy of both Chaplin and Team America.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Fans of the nasty Baron Cohen may regret his being borderline nice in The Dictator. But we should welcome his decision to stop being the best at something few others dare try and instead to inhabit a more familiar comedy style--just going denser, wilder, better. He pulls it off.

    Time Full Review
  • Nick Schager

    A superb vehicle for Sacha Baron Cohen's over-the-top socio-political outrageousness.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Cohen employs a comic range that ricochets between wicked political barbs and the lowest anatomical farce, to often funny and occasionally hilarious effect.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    The Dictator isn't going to win awards and it isn't as hip as Borat. Big goofy outrageous laughs is what it has to offer.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    If Baron Cohen is going to continue making scripted comedies, he needs to work with directors far less slapdash than Larry Charles. He can be one of the funniest people on the planet, but he needs a real dictator – I mean, director – calling the shots.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Mixes its high and low comedy with surprising success.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    The Dictator's over-the-top rant against the rank lunacy of authoritarianism deploys comedy like an act of violence; it's outrageous, quick and leaves us breathless, whether from laughter or shock.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Too short and undisciplined to be a world-class comedy, but its chutzpah deserves respect.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The Dictator is funny, in addition to being obscene, disgusting, scatological, vulgar, crude and so on.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The good news is that The Dictator is a loose and silly and occasionally exhilarating political farce in the tradition of Chaplin's The Great Dictator (obviously) and the Marx Brothers' antiwar masterpiece "Duck Soup." And it comes in at a fleet 83 minutes - just right.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Although the character of Aladeen seems awfully predictable by Baron Cohen standards, the movie itself veers from one hilarious, absurd and patently offensive setup to the next. Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Even the smuttiest jokes about rape, torture and genitals have a more polished edge, sliding by without causing much offense. Watching actors portray alarm at Cohen's antics isn't as hilarious as civilians doing it for real.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    The Dictator leaves you laughing helplessly. It starts at outrageous and rockets on from there. Screw the occasional sputter.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    As for Baron Cohen, he's a great comic but his acting can still use work - most of his funniest lines appear to have been dubbed over other actors' reaction shots in post-production.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    After laughing at crudely funny scenes in The Dictator, there's a cringing sensation of guilt.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Cohen at his best is both brazen and sly. As is The Dictator.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    By turns hysterical, heretical, guilty, innocent, silly, sophisticated, teasing and tedious.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • James Mottram

    Outrageous, outlandish and overboard, The Dictator will satisfy Cohen's army of fans. But it never feels as funny, full-on or fresh as "Borat" and "Brüno."

    Total Film Full Review
  • Damon Wise

    Formulaic, yet scrappy, and extremely funny in fits and starts, General Aladeen is the first of Cohen comic creations to get a better vehicle than it probably deserves.

    Empire Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Typically, political correctness couldn't be farther from the filmmakers' mind, and yet, what the picture most sorely lacks is the sort of humanist appeal Chaplin delivered at the close of "The Great Dictator."

    Variety Full Review
  • Shawn Levy

    The Dictator has a few laughs along its bumpy path, but not enough of them to indicate that Cohen has found a means to escape the shadows of his early career and forge a second act for himself.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    A climactic speech on the lessons Western democracy might learn from Middle Eastern despotism offers a few moments of pure brilliance. I'd say that speech is worth the price of admission if it didn't also illustrate exactly what the film is missing: barbs that aim for the comedic bull's-eye.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    For the most part, the movie's rhythms feel slightly off -- there are long stretches without a laugh -- and there is a mean-spirited air to the whole thing.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Karina Longworth

    Even in its manufactured boundary-pushing - a flash of full-frontal Baron Cohen, another scene set partially inside a birth canal - The Dictator never really risks anything.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    One of the cleverest moments in Sacha Baron Cohen's The Dictator comes during the first five seconds: a memorial dedication to Kim Jong Il. It's all downhill from there.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    You're left with an inert, politically neutral movie, a satire that can't bring itself to properly satirize anything.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    While Baron Cohen's lanky physical slapstick and verbal manglings are funny, the movie begins to feel like one of the later, worn-out Pink Panther movies.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    What's shocking this time is how tame Sacha Baron Cohen's newest wild man is, for all the kerfuffle the comedian can stir up on the ­promotional trail.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Sacha Baron Cohen's tosses off some sensationally funny stuff before descending into a rat-a-tat rhythm of random insult and ritual vulgarity.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The conventional meet-cute love story at the center of The Dictator feels like a bizarre concession to some nonexistent demographic that prefers its sick black comedy with a side of humanist sentiment.

    Slate Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    That potential is mostly squandered in The Dictator, which gestures halfheartedly toward topicality and, with equal lack of conviction, toward pure, anarchic silliness.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    The latest collaboration between Cohen and director Larry Charles proves the formula they created with "Borat" and then started to milk dry with "Brüno" has finally run out of juice. Time to move on, guys.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    Its dolly- and crane-operated polish points toward an acquiescence to Tinseltown mores, which until now Baron Cohen hovered cheekily above.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Cohen probably thinks he's Charlie Chaplin lampooning Hitler, but of course Hitler was still on top of the world when "The Great Dictator" came out in 1940; Cohen is actually Chaplin's antithesis, a first-world bully content to target the Other.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Even amid the hit-and-miss broadsides and laugh-free longueurs that comprise most of The Dictator, Cohen's acute hypocrisy-detector keeps on ticking, if barely.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Denby

    The Dictator, like its predecessors, is short (eighty-three minutes), but it runs down fast, and the lewd jokes pile up. [28 May 2012, p. 76]
