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

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

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.

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.

Borat is so gut-bustingly funny it should carry a health warning.
June 6, 2019
A gut-busting, uncompromising, totally outrageous film that takes the comedy of embarrassment to new, unprecedented levels.

Offensive? Yes, but I haven't laughed this hard since the Marx Brothers and Laurel and Hardy.

For better or for worse, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is unique, an important movie, a multiplex comedy that doubles as a conceptual art epic.

Borat... is a not only a very good comedy but is also an interesting sociological experiment as to how numerous individuals in the USA would respond to a man such as Borat, and often the reactions are interesting and vastly entertaining.

Frequently uproarious and occasionally side-splitting -- but it's very hit-or-miss, prone to stretches of unnecessary crudeness and flat one-liners.

Often functions hilariously as an exposé of squirming American tolerance shading into condescension toward the rest of the world

Borat is the rare comedy that operates without a safety net. Cohen and director Larry Charles' film provides constant laughter and surprises while daring the viewer to be rightfully offended.

Although I knew it was dishonest, cynical, and the ultimate in cheap-shot humor, I laughed more at Borat than at any other film this year. So I guess the joke is on me.

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

Brace yourself -- Borat is here. Not for kids.

Borat is the funniest film imaginable right now.

The most impressive ingredient is Cohen, whose inflection and timing are dead-on as he negotiates a vague accent, a native language composed of gibberish and a sprinkling of Polish, and a way of making tired American jokes funny again.

America, you got punk'd and the result is horrifying. Borat paints a picture of the American landscape that would induce nightmares were you not laughing so hard.
July 23, 2007
A rude punk-rock snapshot of an America that quails at two men kissing but cheers the notion of George W. Bush drinking the blood of 'every man, woman and child in Iraq.'
