The trailers don't do this movie justice...it was FUNNIER than I had expected, and was so hilarious I couldn't stop laughing/crying. Every minute/moment was full of witty jokes, yes racial jokes but hilarious, mocking/emphasizing racial notions, just overall HILARITY and stupid funny entertainment. The best part was that it wasn't just stupid humor, it was stupid humor done intelligently, and so well and it made the movie so entertaining hilarious and enjoyable. cohen mocked and used every racial or racist concept possible, but did it so well. It was over the top funny crazy funny on another level movie... the concept of a 'stupid guy' playing the dictator's double made it even crazier as cohen even played himself, playing the stupid guy imitating the dictator...every minute of this movie was over the top crazy funny...don't miss it and it's not one you just want to check out once....

This movie is hilarious and loads of fun. You have to have an open mind and a great sense of humor to see this movie and love it. I thought it was clever, very funny, and thoroughly entertaining.

The movie in the beginning played what the trailers showed. However, it was a pretty good movie overall. It created lots of laughter in the theater and was a funny movie in general. I enjoyed the movie & I would say, GO WATCH IT!

My wife and I went and saw this movie yesterday in Torrance Del Amo movies complex. It was the most hilarious movie I have ever seen. My wife and being originally from Algeria, could relate so well to everything that went on and of course to all the nuances made throughout the movie, the traditional characteristics shown throughout, and more than anything else, the attitudes portrayed and the plots...We were also ecstatic that most of the music was sung by Algerian musicians who specialize in Rai music. The movis IS REALLY FANTASTIC!!!!! My wife never cried so hard in her life, we continued laughing driving home and even when we woke up this morning, remembering some of the scenes.
IT IS A DEFINITE MUST SEE!
This movie is going to win big at the next Oscars for sure!
