Directed by: Larry Charles
Running Time: 1 hr 25 mins
Release Date: May 16, 2012
Plot: General Aladeen (Cohen) is an evil dictator who is overthrown, and now must struggle to find a new life and possible love in New York City.
Who’S It For? The humor is outlandish, with tons of filthy jokes crammed in to the short running time.
I like to go in fresh. I avoided all trailers and TV spots. When I sat down to watch the The Dictator I thought I was getting more of the same with Cohen from his previous films Borat and Bruno. That’s not the case here.
Like the movie title, Cohen seems to dictate all aspects of this film, but this time instead of throwing his humor at unsuspecting (typically dim-witted) real Americans, he’s playing off of real actors, »
