The Dictator is a 2012 comedy film from the man behind "Borat" and "Bruno", Sacha Baron Cohen. This time Cohen drops off the mockumentary (mock documentary) style of film presentation in exchange of a more mainstream Hollywood presentation as he plays "The Dictator". A film based on an romantic allegorical novel supposedly written by Saddam Hussein, will this film be as funny as Sacha Baron Cohen's mockumentary? Let's find out.

The Dictator Movie Trailer Review

Comedy is probably one of the hardest genre for Hollywood. It walks a very thing line. Sacha Baron Cohen's past comedy films walked that line. Most liked his style of humor, others received it poorly, while others are offended. This time he is back with another satirical form of humor as he plays the role of someone that everyone hates, an oppressive dictator.

Personally speaking, I somehow find myself smiling at a few scenes in this trailer. Hopefully the film offers a more laugh out loud experience than its trailer. Although some humor featured in the trailer are very traditional and bordering to slapstick level, it somehow gets away with it. Let us just see on how well America received this kind of comedy? can they laugh at themselves or at someone who has the status that caused their nation great pain? Well, guess that is what we will find out come May 2012.
