Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 4 -- DEAR DICTATOR is the rare high-concept coming-of-age story with enough warmth and smart-ass charm to make it accessible for a fairly wide cross-section of moviegoers.
Pleasant enough to watch, even innocuous, "Dear Dictator" is something that gets worse the more you think about it. Full Review
The film's premise seems loaded with comic possibilities, but silly scenes overwhelm the story. Plus, Michael Caine is dreadfully miscast. Full Review
ReelTalk Movie Reviews
Rating: D+ -- Ineffective, intermittently painful attempt at world-weary funny business. Full Review
Rating: 3/10 -- Dear Dictator makes you hope for something subversive, and there occasional flashes of potential, but then it always falls back into the easiest, most obvious route. Full Review
Under the Radar
Rating: .5/4 -- Life hacks from a warm and fuzzy dictator. What's not to loathe? Full Review

He ends up occupying the home of a feisty teenage girl (Odeya Rush) in suburban America, and the two form an unlikely friendship as the dictator helps her fight back against her bullying classmates. Katie Holmes, Seth Green, and Jason Biggs co-star. Written and directed by Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse.
