The dictator

  • Like its creator and star Sacha Baron Cohen, the comedy of The Dictator is mercurial to the extreme and as crude as the massive oil reserves of Wadiya, the fictional North African nation where his latest movie prank begins.
  • (Los Angeles Times)
  • Many fans will be disappointed that Sacha Baron Cohens The Dictator is a more or less conventional comedy and not an ambush-interview mockumentary in the style of Borat and Bruno.
  • (WBUR)
  • Sacha Baron Cohen would walk a mile for a camel. And hell travel several thousand miles for a good photo opportunity.
  • (MetroMix)
  • Director Larry Charles, 56, may not be as immediately recognizable as his star Sacha Baron Cohen, but the pair have worked together on The Dictator, Borat, and Bruno.
  • (YAHOO!)
  • On the face of it, Sacha Baron Cohen might seem to be hoeing the same row this time round but by other means. Once more, a funny foreigner with unpalatable attitudes is let loose on the Land of the Free.
  • (The Guardian)
  • The Dictator knows how to make a scene. Sacha Baron Cohens comedy character turned up at the Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday with two of his model bodyguards and a camel, bringing the famed Croisette promenade to a standstill.
  • (San Francisco Gate)
  • The Cannes Film Festival is in full effect and as usual the paparazzi are scanning the harbor hoping to catch a glimpse of a scantly clad celebrity or two for the money shot.
  • (Examiner)
  • Sacha Baron Cohen's "The Dictator" opens in theaters at midnight on Tuesday, but the film already has some Arab-Americans complaining about its damaging portrayal of Arabs.
  • (TheWrap)
  • Sacha Baron Cohen has been very aggressive in his promotional campaign for The Dictator.
  • (Insult comedy of the highest order -
  • Not everyone is psyched about Sacha Baron Cohen s latest comic creation.
