Well, I finished it and laughed maybe five times, which is little for a comedy. I’m really not sure why Sasha Baron Cohen could only come up with this mediocre stuff. The best scene is the speech about dictatorship and democracy at the end. It could have been a cool satire, but now it’s just cheap and corny. I don’t mind dark humor and I love political incorrect humor, but there’s almost nothing of it in this one. Pretty much a failure.

Oh it’s about a dictator going to New York to address the UN about his nuclear program. He almost get eliminated by this uncle who has replaced him with a lookalike. The real dictator can escape and tries to get his position back and gets help from unexpected corners.
