Sacha Baron Cohen brings more raunchy humor, racial stereotypes, uncomfortable moments

Larry Charles latest collaboration with ever-publicized comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, The Dictator, is funnier than you think, but even at a cramped 83 minute running time, it still manages to feel rather overlong, and a tad forced. Still, The Dictator is a embracingly stupid, crude, disturbing and overall utterly ridiculous raunchfest, which is certainly sure to satisfy it's prime targets, with me being included. While ti certainly wasn't as good as Borat, or even Bruno, the Dictator is a decent enough comedy to watch during this years summer movie season, as more or less a comical alternative, or break, to all of those big budget summer movie action blockbusters that are going to be coming in drove for the next few months, now. Now, the Dictator tell's the "heroic" story of how general Alladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) managed to stand up for what he believed in in order to change the face of his country, which is dictatorship, communism, anti-freedom and civil rights. Now, since General Alladeen manages to take a bit of a tour through New York City during during 90% of the movies running time, and that some of the fish out of water jokes are a bit tired, including some frequent banter with co-star Ann Faris, the two of them still keep the film fully afloat, not to mention with a bit of help from the other cast members, which include Ben Kingsley (imagine that!) and numerous hilarious cameos from celebrities, including Megan Fox, Edward Norton and others. But, since this movie is Rated R, parents need to be aware of the type of content that Sacha Baron Cohen deals with as a comedian, and that he has been dealing with in his past two films, but, here we go: The film contains a literal non-stop barrage of strong crude and sexual content throughout, which includes a very brief scene of a woman's breasts being milked, thong and bra-clad slaves being told to pleasure a man, a extremely graphic but comical birth scene where we see several shots of the inside of a woman's vagina, with several objects including a cell phone and two peoples hands being inserted into it; also, there are several shots of full frontal male nudity of the main lead, with most of them being close-ups, and will make most people in the audience terribly uncomfortable, but it is all very funny stuff; and, finally, there is even a scene where the main character is taught how to masturbate, which involves bizarre images of what he is masturbating to, overly-exaggerated shots of his outrageous arm movements, and even several shots of his semen covered tissue paper. Also, there is some occasional violent content, including several very graphic, but very crude and funny images of a mans decapitated head being used as the pawn in several jokes. And, finally, there is frequent but fairly average profanity for a R Rated movie, but it does include several uses each of f--k, sh-t, d-mn, h-ll, b-tch and b-strd. So, even though The Dictator had me laughing frequently, and hard, it just wasn't enough to make the entire movie completely worth paying for, but as I see it, it is still definitely a must for fans of Sacha Baron Cohen, just like me.

Honestly, this movie really isn't that bad. I saw it when I was 8 years old and I understood everything they were doing and saying and I didn't have a problem with it.

In my opinion, i'd rather see a movie like this than Riddick or something like that. This movie wasn't really the type of thing that made have nightmares. The violence is very mild, there are two scenes that include violence. One scene includes Aladeen shooting people on a race track (no blood or gore is shown). Also, Aladeen escapes a chair he's being tortured in (off screen, meant for laughs because of the jokes Aladden makes when in the chair) and lights a man on fire and leaves him to burn (no gore is shown). The language is both strong and offensive. He nicknames a store worker "Blackie Chan". There are terms used in the movie such as "suck it, loser". People use the words f--k, s--t, p---y, c--k, bitch, N word and a--hole. There is a brief scene of Aladeen playing video games and shooting Jews and Aladeen also makes fun of Chinese people in multiple scenes. The sexual content is the worst part of all but it is a fair amount for an R movie. This sex includes milking girls breasts, breasts are partially shown. There is a seen of Aladeen masturbating and having daydreams. Aladeen has pictures of him having sex with people (meant for laughs). Aladeen is shown fully naked and his penis hits a window (again, meant for laughs). There is some drugs and drinking.

Funny movie but not for kids.

A hilarious movie but it should not be viewed by anyone under 16 because of it's racist terms and rape scene.

Very funny crude comedy can be seen by mature teens, but be warned

This movie would be appreciated by a 14-18 year old definitely. But, the content is very mature, Brief shot of frontal male nudity and many, many crude jokes and sexual actions. There are also many racial comments that m,ay be offensive, but are meant to be funny

Hilarious and Fine for Teens

Teen, 14 years old Written byThorthegodofthunder May 25, 2012

Very funny but also very vulgar.

Good movie for mature teens. This movie is very funny but many people would find the content in this movie offensive. Aladeen is very sexist, racist, and he discriminates throughout the whole movie. For parents asking about if there is nudity the answer is yes. Not that much but in the movie we see a woman being milked. Overall, it's a very funny movie and I would recommend it to a friend.

The Dictator... A Movie for Mature Teens and No One Else

The Dictator manages to get laughs from the audience by poking fun at terrorism, racism, sexism, rape, and sexuality. Although it may be extremely funny for the more mature teenagers and adults, this movie is definitely not for kids. It is also important to note the previous movies that this actor, Sacha Baron Cohen, has acted in, because this movie is very similar to his others, very graphic and raw. In my opinion, this movie was NOT as funny as Cohen's older movie Borat.

My rating: R for crude and sexual content, some nudity and language

One of the funniest movies ever

This is a hysterical movie. It's one of my favourite comedies. The fact that this site gives it 16 and up is insane. It's quite tame and here in Canada it's only rated 14 a . But I gees the MPAA gave it r the only bad things in this movie are a pair of preset edit boobs witch is just hilarious a few comidic sexual references. And brief make nundity witch is very easy to miss every teen will love this movie it is.verry funny

Aladeen Mother-whoa

Sasha Baron Cohen does a fine job of playing the dictator leader of Wadiya. But it's sorta weird and hardcore. The sex scenes and references are hardcore, there are many not so subtle references to many graphic acts and also there are prostitutes, one scene the dictator's stunt double milks one, there's a lesbian kiss, a sex scene where armpits are licked, a very explicit pregnancy, a scene showing a naked newborn baby with its pubic hair, and more sex galore. Some f words and milk violence. It's a sort of annoying film but it's pretty funny.

For the topic and actors in this movie....the movie was actually very appropriate

There was a suprisingly low amount of sex in this movie and all the violence is quite comical. THis movie will make you roll on the ground laughing. A very clever topic to that hasent been done before. This movie will be enjoyed by younger kids and all of the profane stuff will go right over their heads. 10 times less inappropriate than borat or bruno.

R for crude and sexual content, brief nudity, language and some violent content

Teen, 14 years old Written byAndy2000 May 29, 2015

Inappropriate but sometimes funny

The Dictator is an inappropriate movie for 17 and younger. This is not to say they can't watch it, but it has a lot of less than moral activities going on. It's absolute absurdity makes it occasionally funny. However more often than not it is just simply distasteful. In an early scene, the main character is seen fully naked as a baby, born with a full beard. This kind of humor is all over the movie. Another scene shows the Dictator and a famous actress in the last few moments of what seems to be prostitution. Later, a 'retarded' lookalike of the Dictator is scene going into a room full of naked women. The guard who showed him in the looks through the door and sees the lookalike milking a topless woman like a cow. The camera does not try to hide the breasts. If you find crass humor entertaining, you may enjoy it. But otherwise it's just too much innuendo for kids.

It varies.

This movie has explicit scenes that include nude masturbation, sex scenes, and full frontal male nudity. It also includes foul language and drug use. However, it is a nice comedy, played by the ever-so-raunchy Sasha Baren Cohen. No children should watch this, but depending on your adolescent's maturity, they can watch it.
