  • Borat's cultural learning is revealing, even if it doesn't adequately convey how it benefits glorious nation of Kazakhstan.

  • The backlash just proves how deep a nerve the faux Kazakh journalist has hit.

    November 1, 2007 | Full Review…
  • The genius of Borat is all in Sacha Baron Cohen's daring, edgy, unrestrained performance.

    March 24, 2007
  • Borat is a serious work of social criticism. But it's also the funniest movie I've ever seen.

    November 22, 2006 | Rating: A
  • The theory of comedy here is that you can get away with almost anything if you manage to make your target audience feel superior to the human beings being mocked on the screen.

    November 15, 2006
  • I did find this to be one of the more inventive, aggressively offensive and insanely tasteless comedies in many a year. And yeah, that's a thumbs-up.

Audience Reviews for Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

  • Mar 29, 2016
    This IS my single favorite comedy movie of all time. Sacha Baron Cohen has always been really great with his mockumentary characters like Ali G and of course, Borat. But this movie truly shows the range of his fabulous writing and dialogue and his incredibly acting skills that open the door for other fun cameos like Pamela Anderson, who he is incredibly in love with. This is one of the best movies that Cohen has ever made and it is also one of those films that is always worth watching again.

    It's crude, offensive, satirical and emphatic in the funniest of ways. Sacha Baron Cohen is brilliant as Borat. This mockumentary of a cross-country trip around America from the eyes of a joyous tourist explores the truthful and boasting culture of American society. Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is a pushy film that is highlighted by the characterization of its main character and morality of the trek across a nation. 3.5/5

    Disgusting. It isn't funny to be made to feel uncomfortable for other people for 83 minutes unless you have a serious personality flaw.

    Mixes seamlessly live unconfortable interviews with an actual plot with outrageous offensive results that are absolutly genius on making a point but are also there just for giggles. There's a joke at every corner and pretty much every single one is pure gold. Definently one of the most important and funny comedies on the 00s.
