Movie Preview by OMY SG: The Dictator

The Dictator is a heroic story of a dictator, Haffaz Alladeen, of the oil-rich African nation of Wadiya who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.

Definitely, a movie to watch for an hour and almost half hours of laughing (as you could have guessed from the trailer)! The story line may be generic and very predictable but the humor in it makes up for its "I-knew-it" plot. Just a heads up that some of the jokes may be offensive if it implies to your gender, race etc~ So take it with a pinch of salt. But in midst of all the jokes, the movie was trying to make a point about what exactly is Democracy and I felt like the last portion of the movie explained it really well.

That aside, awesome cast for this movie~ I bet you didnt realised that the Main Lead,Sacha Baron Cohen, is also the actor of Bruno and Borat! Fabulous actor, I didnt even realise until I goggled him! Haha!

On the whole, the story ties in really well and I like how some of the portions are out right in-your-face funny and how some requires a little bit more thinking to find the humor in it! 
Better go and watch it! No? It's ok~ it really is up to you! *Big warm smile*

(Behind your back)
p.s. yes.. My lame attempt of a joke. You will only get it if you watched the movie.
