Plot Summary
Gen. Aladeen (Sacha Baron Cohen) has ruled the oil-rich North African country of Wadiya since the age of six, when 97 stray bullets and a hand grenade killed his father in a hunting accident. After an assassination attempt takes the life of yet another body-double, Tamir (Ben Kingsley), Aladeen's uncle and most trusted adviser, convinces Aladeen to go to New York. Unfortunately, Aladeen has a less-than-friendly reception from exiled Wadiyans, who want their country freed from his despotic rule.

    The right amount of over the top stereotypes coupled with a brilliant performance by Cohen make The Dictator one of the funniest comedies of 2012. Please Sasha, continue to expose the ridiculous prejudices and preconceptions we all harbor with your amazing comedy.
