I took my children to see “The Dictator” this weekend. We all loved it (though my husband refused to see it — his loss!). Sasha Baron Cohen is seriously funny and actually very cute when his beard is shaved.
Yes, the movie is prejudiced, but so were his other two movies. What you have to remember is that his humor knows no bounds, so you can’t take any of it personally. Also, if you are a prude, or squeamish, this is not the movie for you. However, if you are just open to laughing at anyone and everyone it is extremely well done and entertaining. Also, it’s only an hour and a house which is a refreshing change. Somebody isn’t afraid to edit, which makes the movie pass quickly and without any need to look at your watch or take a bathroom break.
We give it three thumbs up.
