The story is about a news reporter from Kazakhstan is on a mission to learn how to improve his own country by learning from the best when he falls in love with Pam Anderson. This movie had a lot of funny jokes and Sacha Baron Cohen plays borat in the film and he was brilliant.

The first time I saw this movie was the hardest I have ever laughed throughout a movie. It is funny, eye-opening, vulgar, offensive, disgusting, and just freaking creative. This is a must watch comedy. Sacha Baron Cohen actually got sued by multiple parties after seeing themselves look like racist/sexist a**holes. High Re-watchability.

Borat is Sascha Baron Cohen's most original and fresh feature length film. The character of Borat doesn't grasp at controversial straws, but, rather, feels like a unique combination of insensitive racial stereotypes and pure idiocy. The interviews and situations also feel the most unforced and Borat's lovable simpleton, with the one goal of meeting Pamela Anderson, doesn't grate, as some of Cohen's later creations do. (Thinking mainly of Bruno.)

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 …

The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen as Borat Sagdiyev, a journalist from Kazakhstan. Ken Davitian plays the producer of Boratís 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 …

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 …
