Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE DICTATOR is a satirical comedy in which Sacha Baron Cohen plays the unpopular dictator of an imaginary middle-eastern country who travels to the USA.

Language

There is use of strong language ('f**k').

Sex

There are frequent strong sex references, including a scene in which a man is taught how to masturbate and appears to do so vigorously, indicated by the rapid movement of his arm. He subsequently brandishes sticky tissues.

The film also contains racial stereotyping and racist language but the film as a whole does not condone such language or behaviour.
