The Dictator posterThe Dictator
      2012 | USA | Laughs: 7.8 (Laugh Out Loud) | imdb: 6.4
      wikipedia | who was involved?

Stripped of his signature beard, a dictator who is stranded in New York struggles to reclaim his post before an imposter signs a new constitution for his beloved homeland.

If you are not easily offended, this movie has some terrific moments. You just have to take the good with the bad. I'm not a fan of the many crass bits, but Baron Cohen has the rare ability to keep gags coming at top speed, and the movie left me with a good fill of laughs. (Last viewed: July 2015)

Surprisingly, this sequel is a tad funnier than the original thanks to beautiful writing and splendid acting. Too many sub plots to summarize this rich movie, in which Eddie and his friends try to break into mass retail. Only regret: the disappearance of the original Dov (Vincent Elbaz) and Sandra's dad (Richard Bohringer of Diva). This is partly offset by the entry of Gad Elmaleh. (Last viewed: February 2011)

A bellboy in a ritzy hotel on the French Riviera falls in love with a gold digger. I delayed watching this movie as I am not as taken with the actress of Amelie as many people seem to be, and it was a good surprise as it was full of chuckles. The movie also confirmed my fondness for the lead actor, Gad Elmaleh, whom I had just seen in The Valet. (Last viewed: October 2010)

Coco DVDCoco
      2009 | France | Laughs: 1.4 (Just Awful) | imdb: 3.3
      wikipedia | who was involved?

This film is an example of what tends to happen when you allow an excellent stand-up comedian write and direct a feature film. I guess Gad Elmaleh needed direct experience to learn that writing a script for an array of characters requires different skills from writing a show for himself alone. I like Gad's work a lot, both as a stand-up and in films such as The Valet, but Coco deserves nothing more than its 3.1 IMDB rating—probably a record low, of all comedies whose IMDB pages I have seen.
