OFFENSIVE AS ALL GET-OUT, but that’s why it works. It’s offensive, but often also smartly biting humor that is at the same time good-natured. And most importantly it’s funny. Sacha Baron Cohen is Jewish, if that helps get past some of the anti-semitic humor, a cruder variant of which was on display in Borat. By comparison, The Dictator is a polished, complete movie that has a good storyline and is funnier and considerably better than Borat. Baron Cohen is turning out to be quite the talent. Watch this for a good, fun time, as long as you don’t mind comedy which goes there.
