The plot: Admiral General Aladeen is the ruler of the fictional Middle Eastern republic of Wadiya and he presides over his people with an iron fist. He temporarily abandons home shores to visit America and the strange customs of the West, not to mention the overt sexual equality and freedom of expression, give Aladeen bountiful food for thought.

what the others say
"Formulaic, yet scrappy, and extremely funny in fits and starts."
"If a comedy is meant to make you laugh, mission accomplished. As a series of wonderfully grotesque set-pieces, The Dictator delivers."
"Typically, political correctness couldn't be farther from the filmmakers' mind, and yet, what the pic most sorely lacks is the sort of humanist appeal Chaplin delivered at the close of The Great Dictator."
