Of course it's offensive and tasteless. That's the point. Sometimes the jokes are excruciatingly funny.

The Dictator is funny, in addition to being obscene, disgusting, scatological, vulgar, crude and so on.
Critic Score: 4/5

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.
Critic Score: 3/5

Baron Cohen balances the stupid, outrageous, over-the-top stuff with almost, ahem, radically provocative observations and pronouncements...
Critic Score: 3.5/5
