Underrated comic excellence from Sacha Baron Cohen with plenty of sharp satire lacing the broader gross-out gags.

This comedy succeeds as a crude, inventive and humours look at a dumb despot.

Now [Cohen is] turning material both fresh and rancid into tepid gruel.

Consistently offensive, and not in a way that should automatically be dismissed as 'edgy' or 'provocative'.

On the laughmeter The Dictator is closer to Borat than to the misfired Bruno, which is to say it's funny for about half of its brisk 83 minutes.

Feels more like one of those lousy SNL movies from the early nineties than the work of our sharpest contemporary satirist.

The problem is that, unlike Ali G, Borat, and Brüno, Aladeen is less a force of nature than a scripted performance.

This is not a character who can hold the center of a movie for 90 minutes.

Most of The Dictator had me neither laughing nor shocked, but just staring at the screen in anxious is-that-all-there-is? silence.

A mix of gimme jokes and fish-out-of-water observations about a foreigner's introduction to New York City that were rendered clichéd by 'Crocodile Dundee.'

The film has a vicious edge that the Marx Brothers didn't have, and it's too low-minded to achieve their enchanting blend of anarchy and surrealism.

A bit scattershot and schticky, the film never quite settles into a consistent comic rhythm. Yet for fans of Baron Cohen's work there are plenty of moments of crass hilarity.
