The Dictator is indeed better than Borat or Bruno, but as a whole it still isn't good enough comedy and parody of notorious dictator, where one could draw a parallel with Gaddafi. Sacha Baron Cohen indeed is a daredevil, scared of nothing and no one, especially now, when all notoriously known dictators are dead, however a large portion of his humor is basically on the same level as "toilet humor movies" of the likes of Seltzer Aaron and Jason Friedberg, there's far too many similarities in scenes that can be seen in the movie Borat, but the story is at times very similar to the comedy "Moon Over Paridor", from '88 and starring Richard Dreyfuss. Some of the scenes, however, are excellent and entertaining enough, that the viewer can't say it wasn't a solid comedy or a waste of money. The problem of "The Dictator" is in that, it is seldom clever and original, and too predictable most of the time. Dictator will be very well received by those in the audience, who haven't seen Borat, others will simply chalk it up to a "Borat wannabe movie", where instead of Pamela Anderson, you'll have Megan Fox. The trick to this parody genre is such a direct humor that breaks taboos in any crisis, so "The Dictator" in this context, is indeed a surplus, but on the other hand, of course, a sad one.
