THE DICTATOR Movie Review

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012





Sacha Baron Cohen is at it again, thank goodness because I really needed to overwrite the memories of Bruno with something better. I am a big fan of Borat, even with all its outlandishness, but Bruno was just wrong. Sacha now brings us this new character, Aladeen the dictator, and he’s back to basics. Yes the movie is brimming with outlandishness as you’d expect. There is a good amount of shock humor, normal humor, stupid humor, slapstick, and it’s even corny at times too. The movie itself is not exactly great, but it’s not meant to be; it’s meant to be funny and it is there that it succeeds, if you don’t mind Sacha’s style of humor. He really pushes the envelope with this extreme humor. It’s what he does best. It’s crazy, it’s raunchy, and it’s fun. READ FULL REVIEW

Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy THE DICTATOR Gets Release Date

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Paramount Pictures announced today that Sacha Baron Cohen’s new comedy THE DICTATOR will be released worldwide on May 11, 2012. The studio also announced that Larry Charles (“Borat”, “Bruno”) has come aboard to direct.

The film tells the heroic story of a dictator who risked his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed. It is inspired by the best selling novel “Zabibah and The King” by Saddam Hussein.

Producing alongside Baron Cohen are Scott Rudin, Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel. The project marks the first collaboration for Rudin (“The Social Network,” “True Grit”) and Baron Cohen, while Berg, Schaffer and Mandel (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) join him as screenwriters on the movie. The movie is the latest collaboration between Baron Cohen and Charles, who previously worked together on “Borat” as well as “Bruno”. Dan Mazer (“Borat” “Bruno”), Ant Hines (“Borat” “Bruno”) and Peter Baynham (“Borat”) will serve as executive producers, reuniting the rest of the Academy Award®-nominated and Golden Globe winning “Borat” team. Todd Schulman (“Borat” “Bruno”) is co-producing under Baron Cohen’s Four By Two Films banner.
