Comic Sacha Baron Cohen re-teams with director Larry Charles (Borat, Bruno) for this satirical tale of an oppressive, democracy-hating dictator and a goatherder (both played by Cohen) whose misadventures in America lead to a series of outrageous culture clashes. Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, and Curb Your Enthusiasm's J.B. Smoove co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
A couple of Sacha Baron Cohen's movies have been semi-humorous but this movie is not counted among them. I didn't find any of it amusing. The humor is very juvenile and I suspect only young teen boys will find it funny, which is ironic considering it's rating prevents teen boys from seeing it. The irony continues in that you can't even accurately describe the kind of jokes in this film without the review process telling you to remove offensive words before it will post the review. Basically, I feel cheated out of an hour and half of my life that I will never get back again.
Very entertaining. Hysterical 1 liners, crass humor, crazy accents, cameos by several A-list actors that appear out of nowhere - when you least expect it. This Baron Cohen flick was actually pretty good.
I keep watching Cohen's movies hoping for something CLOSE to "Borat..Kasakhstan..", but they're all just TERRIBLE. This one is the worst yet, with stupid jokes (not the funny kind), a totally boring story line, and badly mis-handled / squandered opportunities to capitalize on the REAL WORLD kookiness of the like of the late M. Gaddafi.
