What I saw was fairly funny....

Almost classic status. Maybe needs more time. The original character from the TV show/s is best.

You will find yourself googling if some of these events actually took place. It's a blaze of fire we can not look away from.

Great fantastic phenomenal funny hilarious movie starring who knows but he's hilarious. I loved every second of this movie and every joke in this movie is funny, really funny. I can't wait to see what this guy does next, I think he created Bruno. Everything is awesome in this movie, the jokes and I like that they take it to the extra level, it's just the best.

A funny satirical film in they eyes of a Kazakh journalist who documents America's culture. The unscripted stunts and jokes in the film are what makes Borat so enjoyable and funny!

Borat may be offensive and crude but it does so in the funniest way possible. Sacha Baron Cohen's performance is daring and he seems committed to the role. The film's documentary approach is actually clever since almost everyone who isn't Borat is an actual person, none of them are actors. There's just something I find amusing in seeing two people fight each other naked in a hotel. Maybe it's the intentionally mock feel so that the film can be all like "It's a Kazakhstan thing". The fact that about 80-85% of the film is unscripted even means lots and lots of improvisation. Everyone loves the improv, am I right? It's the kind of film that shocks but remains hilarious at the same time. As a satirical mockumentary, what did I expect? We'll probably never get another one of these since Baron Cohen's characters are too well-known nowadays in the aftermath of the films based off of characters from Da Ali G Show. But all in all if you only watch one mockumentary, and yes I specifically mean mockumentary, in a year, let that mockumentary be Borat.

Personal favorite and funniest movie over ever watched.

Racist movie: The old cliches of the anti semitic muslim, of Kazakhstan (a nation with a rich and complex history) as a bed rock for prostitutes and degeneracy (which was mostly probably the fault of white settlers, not that this movie mentions this)..... Unashamedly Islamophobic and built on a bed of racist jokes by a jewish "comedian". Not surprisingly, this was a big hit in George Bush's America. Hateful movie, just save whatever money you can and just see Sacha Baron Cohen's "comedy" on tv instead.

Easily Cohen's best character by FAR! Awkwardly hilarious!

Hilarious movie, its humor and caustic satire are top-notch. You just can't get enough Borat jokes, they are truly shocking and stinging, and yet remarkably truthful.

Grade - C-
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.

unbelievably hilarious and clever. Sacha is an amazing actor and Borat is a genius character (about 7 viewings)

Great courage for their recklessness and fearlessness.
But their behavior seems not cultural satire but rather vicious mischief, just violating taboos.
½ December 19, 2016
An offensive but irresistible comedy classic. Get ready for laugh out loud moments galore

Man, this is one of the funniest movies ive ever seen. This is awesome. So nasty tho.

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
November 21, 2016
Probably the best mockumentary ever made.

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.
