The Dictator Official Trailer

Recommended Posts

That is hilarious! And I hate Sacha Baron Cohen, but this seems pretty good. That guy is like an amalgamation of all Arab dictators :lol: I see a lot of Gaddafi, the uniform, the female soldiers etc.

The trailer is funny but I can't say I'll watch the movie. Sasha has a reputation of intentionally offending people and going to extremes in doing it. I'll need to get reviews from people before I check it out.

^ who said he was Arab.

He's just a mockery of all dictators in general.

Looks hilarious either way xD

I dont like these kind of films but I'll probably watch it if it ever comes on TV.

 

Omg we are twins. I say the same thing when I think a movie looks just ok. "I'll wait for it to come on TV!" :lol:

I think it's pretty obvious that he's supposed to be arab.

The trailer doesn't make me a fan, that's for sure. The gags are low-brow. I don't really see much room being made for social commentary. It's just bigoted jokes that are okay because Muslims are the main target.

^I would say it's targeting Arabs more than Muslims. I didn't like it much either. It wasn't offensive in a funny way for me, it just seemed low brow and racist. But a lot of other people seem to like it, so I'm definitely in the minority.

On it's face I'd agree its target is Arabs, but the public's remarkably resilient ability to conflate Arab and Muslim may render them practicably the same. The Empire State building 'joke' was one example of drawing the two together. Yes? No?
