One of...if not the funniest film of all time!

By far one of the funniest films i have ever seen! This is such a gem as every time i watch it the end result is always side splitting laughter no matter how many times i have seen it. Sacha in his notorious 'pull no punches' brand of humour is Borat a Kazakstanian reporter, who gets sent to America by the Kazakstanian minster to collect info for his fellow countrymen, which will supposedly give them all a better understanding of the western culture and it's ways. Borat along with his sidekick/producer Azamat (Ken Davitian) arrive in the big apple as to whcih the duo are soon to learn that their ways and the New Yorkian ways are miles apart! If you are a fan of Cohen's british series 'The Ali G Show' and have never seen this film...what are you waiting for? Warning this film is not for t...

Borat review

The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev, a journalist from Kazakhstan. Ken Davitian plays the producer of Borat’s documentary, Azamat Bagatov. Their comedic tandem reminded me a mixture of early Odd Couple and Dumb & Dumber. Pamela Anderson is included in this grotesque, lewd and unique picture. The journey starts when he leaves his home to create a documentary. He falls in love with Pamela Anderson in New York upon seeing an episode of Baywatch. Borat stumbles upon different scenarios until he marries a prostitute. Some lines: Borat - "She is my sister. She is number four prostitute in all of Kazakhstan." "She make it from milk from her tits."

The humor of this was effective for me. Rarely do comedic films make me laugh so hard it brought some tears and tummy pain...

Very Funny, Cohen is Brilliant!

Finally catching this film on DVD, I did so with trepidation - afraid the hype would overrun my being able to actually enjoy the film (assuming I enjoyed it at all; I had heard it could be pretty offensive in spots).

Sacha Baron Cohen, who co-wrote the film, stars as Borat Sagdiyev, a television journalist in the tiny country of Kazakhstan - who's become somewhat of a local celebrity in the tiny village in which he lives. Borat is tapped to head a film crew (consisting of him and his friend Azamat, played by Ken Davitian, along with - assumedly - a cameraman) that will go to "the U. S. and A." to film a documentary. Once in New York City, however, it becomes obvious that Borat has some real assimilating to do with the American people - in scenes that get increasingly more difficult to...

Review - Borat (2006)

In order to broaden the culture of Kazakhstan, the government sent reporter Borat Sagdiyev (Sacha Baron Cohen) to the United States of America to film a documentary. His trip across America is shown in the mockumentary “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.”

Cohen is one of the smartest people in Hollywood because of this movie. Not only was painfully hilarious (in a good way), but he even went as far as to stay in character during interviews and public appearances before its release. It was a very unique way of bombing America with the film without making it seem annoying like Jerry Seinfeld did with “Bee Movie.”

As for the film, it is at least 85% completely candid, having Borat do as he did on “Da Ali G Show,” interviewing people who...

Just...no!

I don't want to sound harsh but I really didn't enjoy this movie and don't see what the fuss is about. I was never familiar with the character before hand but from watching the trailers I thought I would enjoy it as it seemed like my kind of humour. Oh, how wrong was I! Sure, I laughed a few times but all those moments were from the trailer, the rest was just too cringing for me. I don't find humilitating average people funny and that's basically all it was. The infamous wrestling scene was just painful to watch and I could really have done with not seeing it!

Overall, I think this is a film that you can only judge for yourself. Cohen was brilliant, I can't deny him that but I think he was unnecessarily cruel. I don't ever want to see it again and yet it got huge critical and audience ...
