Jaws IV is not Michael Caine's worst involvement anymore..
17 March 2018 | by adonis98-743-186503See all my reviews

When political turmoil forces a British-Caribbean dictator to flee his island nation, he seeks refuge and hides with a rebellious teenage girl in suburban America, and ends up teaching the young teen how to start a revolution and overthrow the "mean girls" in her high school. Dear Dictator is a comedy that missed the mark completely since it's not funny, the characters are boring and some of the perfomances aren't that good especially Katie Holmes who acts like a 2-year old and can't be taken serious. Overall this film was quite low for Caine's amazing movie career. (0/10)
