There are only a few films that can make you laugh every time you see them as if it were the first time. “The Dictator” is one of those films that never gets old. In the film, Sacha Baron Cohen is at his finest, and he does an excellent job as Aladdin. The film was as unpleasant as a film can be, and the fact that the character was based on a real dictator added to the appeal. Every year, a significant number of comedies are produced in Hollywood, but only a handful stand the test of time and are memorable enough to be watched multiple times. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of films that are comparable to The Dictator. Some of these films, such as The Dictator, are available on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

21 Jump Street (2012)
Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum), high school pals, join the police force together and are utter underachievers. They are assigned to a top-secret Jump Street team to break a synthetic drug operation in a high school. As a result, they must go undercover as high school students to fulfill their job and locate the synthetic drug’s supplier. The film is one of the best comedies of the decade, and Hill and Tatum perform admirably, with Ice Cube, who plays the commander of the secret team, topping them all. The film is based on the same-named 1980s television show that launched Johnny Depp’s career.
Ali G Indahouse (2002)
In this humorous and politically charged film, Sacha Baron Cohen plays Ali G, one of his most well-known alter personalities. Ali G unintentionally becomes a pawn in the Chancellor’s attempt to depose the Prime Minister in the United Kingdom. Ali, on the other hand, has been embraced by the nation as the voice of the youth, boosting the Prime Minister’s and the government’s popularity to new heights. This film, in addition to being a comedy, explores how the media can influence people’s perceptions of everything, particularly the administration of the country.
American Pie (1999)
It is the first film in the American Pie franchise, which has spawned a slew of sequels. The success of this film, as well as the sub-genre it popularized, spawned a series.

Borat Sagdiyev, a journalist from Kazakhstan, travels to America to film a documentary. Borat meets real people in real settings with hysterical results as he zigzags around the country. His regressive behavior elicits significant reactions from others around him, highlighting prejudices and hypocrisies prevalent in American culture. Borat’s interview participants agree with some of his absurd ideas on race and sex, while others attempt to provide a patriotic lesson in Western ideals. The film is insulting in the nicest conceivable way, and Sacha Baron Cohen’s character is the finest he’s ever developed.
Sacha Baron Cohen has delivered yet another outrageous and fascinating mockumentary. Bruno, an Austrian gay fashion designer and self-described “voice of Austrian youth television,” travels to the United States to pursue his aspirations. Bruno is a figure that interviews unwitting fashion icons and other haute couture hangers-on in order to show the oddities of the fashion industry. The film is crude and insulting, yet it is also funny and full of cultural observations.
We’ve all had online pals that we’ve never seen in person, but hope to do so when you’re both in the same city, but would you ever consider going across a continent to meet them?

The film is incredibly enjoyable and is ideal for when you want to unwind your mind while watching something both humorous and ridiculous.
