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.
November 4, 2006
Borat is so gut-bustingly funny it should carry a health warning.
November 3, 2006
Cohen's genius lies in combining the chameleon-like virtuosity of Peter Sellers with the balls-out fearlessness of the Jackass crew.
November 3, 2006
In an era of stale, formulaic comedies, this uproarious and ribald faux documentary is like a hit of pure oxygen.
November 3, 2006
Somewhere in standup comedy heaven Andy Kaufman is smiling. Possibly even busting a gut.
November 3, 2006
The cheerfully tasteless Borat is often screamingly funny and almost never dull, and that's more than I can say for just about every comedy to grace screens this year.
November 3, 2006
It's so inventive, so rich with comic moments, so outrageous, so shocking and unexpected, and so willing to be offensive that it consistently leaves viewers off balance -- and howling. This is a film by an original and significant comic intelligence.

Borat leaves no ethnicity, no religious or social order (well, maybe one or two) unmocked. Both the glorious U.S. and A. and the beautiful Kazakhstan get pilloried by Baron Cohen and his sublimely silly, unapologetically offensive shtick.
November 3, 2006
Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is as fearless as mockumentaries get.
November 3, 2006
Crude, confrontational and stunningly sick, it's a movie made in the fringe tradition of Pink Flamingos, featuring a performer who seems to be willing to do anything for the camera.
November 3, 2006
Put on two pairs of underwear and try to stay dry through one of the most uproariously -- or, in the case of the nude wrestling scene between Borat and his morbidly obese producer, disgustingly -- funny movies in a very long time.
November 3, 2006
Flat-out hilarious -- arguably the funniest American comedy since Airplane!
November 3, 2006
Expect to laugh uproariously; expect to choke back horror and revulsion, often at yourself.
November 3, 2006
When Borat is good, it's very, very good, and when it's bad, it's box-office gold.
November 3, 2006
Borat packs all the intellectual punch of the standard pack of ultra-serious Oscar hopefuls. Plus it makes you laugh until your lungs hurt. And that's why it's one of the best movies of the year.
November 3, 2006
All you think while you're watching is how could people be so amusingly stupid, and why can't I quit laughing at the sight of two naked men wrestling?
