Borat!
 
I've been meaning to post this since I saw it Friday afternoon. This thread, though the opening was limited, is worth trying to go see wherever it's showing. The whole movie the theatre was cracking up. Both myself and my friend ended up laughing so hard we cried.

That said, it's not a movie for everyone. There's a lot of racial humor (especially vs Jews), some of the scenes are just hard to watch (you're embarrassed for him), and some of it is downright gross (Naked wrestling....).

That said, it makes fun of America quite a bit in a somewhat subtley way (interviewing citizens...) Most of it isn't staged, they signed waivers, but Im sure parts of it are.

I saw it last night. Throughout the whole movie I thought the jokes were funny, but it didn't connect throughout the plot like it should've. That said, I could've definitely have done without seeing the naked wrestling scenes and the part where he shows pictures of the kid's dick.

That is the thing, it is hard to make a story that allows for borat style interviews. That is why they blended in a story very well, in this case.

You should look how they integrated skits, with a overall story. Very hard to do.


Hilarious. But I still love The Ali G Show, over Borat! and Ali G: the movie.

You know he's not really making fun of jews right?

Well, he is "making fun of them." But no different from any other comedian that makes fun of their own race/religion. I'm well away that Sasha Cohan (sp?) is Jewish, but many people are easily offended, so I figured I'd put that disclaimer out there.

that's just it, he's not making fun of his own race, he is exposing the anti-semitism of others. It"s funny, but not completely. When he sings throw the jew down the well, the joke is on the people joining him in singing, not his own race. Anyway, I think that's a pretty significant difference.

That's true. I can hardly wait till Borat interviews that douchebag Mel Gibson!@

well basically my 2 cents are this. this movie was damn funny. there were definetly parts where i couldnt breathe i was laughing so hard. some parts were definetyl a little over the edge but that was to be expected. it was well worth the hellish movie ticket price though.

God, I can't wait to see this. I'm hearing really good things from many different places.

That was definitely one of the funniest movies I've seen in years. I really didn't think it was quite as edgy as I was expecting but I could see it upsetting some people.
The DVD for this is going to be great because there has to be a ton of really out there crap from some of those interviews, but it was worth seeing it in a full theater.

seriously? she was in on it? the security guards definitely weren't...

She had to have been in on it, if not I think Borat would have gotten a face full of mase and an ass full of nightstick.
