Racist and raunchy - but in all the good ways - Sacha Baron Cohan proves why he is the master of what he does. With more than a few hilarious moments (unfortunately, most in reference to Jews!) Borat is cringey and over dramatic, even for its superb lead... for the better or the worse. Verdict: B
dont think ill ever understand why this was so universally praised. i think the borat segments on da ali g show are great. as a really long skit it works okay, but not as a movie for me. some funny bits so not a total disappointment, but goes too far a few too many times and that isnt the same thing as being funny.
** 1/2 The best way I can describe 'Borat' is a montage of crazy, ridiculous occurences, some of which are extremley funny, but a many of which don't quite hit the mark. A bit of a mixed bag, but if you like Cohen's humour you should at least give it a try.
This was and still is, the funniest movie I have ever seen. Essentially a nationwide prank on America that highlights our poor understanding of foreign cultures, Sacha Baron Cohen created the perfect comedy movie with this one.
One of the greatest comedic characters in film history, Borat is the ultimate in hilariously offensive and uncomfortable humor. There really isn't a single bad scene in the bunch (the douchebags in the camper, national anthem at the rodeo and the fancy dinner all standout), as we watch Cohen satirize upper-crest Western society. Always wonderful, but especially perfect the way it fits in during the Trump era.
Oh man, the moment Borat was sitting on a dinner party, asking the host and her guests where to put his shit, even asking the hist to wipe her ass! Hahahahaha the balls on this guy!! Oh my fucking God, naughty laughs galore. Not much story wise, but just go with it, if you're like me, you'll cry laughing
