REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..that potential is mostly squandered in "The Dictator," which gestures halfheartedly toward topicality and, with equal lack of conviction, toward pure, anarchic silliness..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..at times, The Dictator plays out like a war between two movies: a savvy, barbed satire and a flaccid, generic potty-mouthed comedy..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..iIt doesn't, in truth, offer much of a twist on the genre. It does, however, deliver laughs and weapons-grade offensiveness..”
by Peter Bradshaw [Guardian [UK]]
