Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan 
Borat review
4/4 stars

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 pains. Yes there were a few senseless scenes; didn’t Dumb & Dumber, Meet the Parents or Something about Mary have some? Some people are just not open to these type of comedies because of some moronic scenes and light plots. Even the method of filming was sub par. The film’s opening weekend’s theater average beat Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest yet behind Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Spider-Man. This goes to show that no matter how stupid a film maybe, if a creative and distinct effort was made to make people laugh was executed, then it is worth viewing. Borat is one of the few gems that made me laugh out loud with almost every scene.
