The heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Cohen at his best is both brazen and sly. As is The Dictator.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune - May 16, 2012
Of course it's offensive and tasteless. That's the point. Sometimes the jokes are excruciatingly funny.
Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com - May 16, 2012
The Dictator is funny, in addition to being obscene, disgusting, scatological, vulgar, crude and so on.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times - May 16, 2012
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.
