If you're up to some slapstick humor, you are in for a good show. Add that with some sexually induced jokes and a bit of offensive language, "The Dictator" makes up a somehow good movie experience. Sacha Baron Cohen stars in this film as a dictator Admiral General Shabazz Aladeen on the North African Republic of Wadiya. Childish, mean and oftentimes arrogant, his world suddenly changed when the scheming ways of his uncle Tamir succeeded as he was "killed" as they know it and replaced by a dummy double as he was about to address the UN Council.

Without beard and all, he was unrecognizable and lost of all sorts but found help with the odd-ball yet charming Zoey aptly played by actress Anna Faris. Goofy and funny at the same time, their screen chemistry was more fun than romantic.

At some point there were drama injected in the whole comic feel making this movie more real and more truthful. It just goes to show that even the meanest people could have that soft spot within their hearts. It has not the strongest plot or the best acting but if you came here for the comic relief, it is good enough. 3.5 out of 5 popcorns.
