It was funny, but I was not in tears like people said I would be.


Funny? Yes. Gutsy? I don't think I could find someone gutsier. Funniest man of all time? I doubt it.

Instead of using Valves, could I use Light Bulbs instead? If so, would the new energy saving ones be OK? Coz I do a lot of playing

I got my pick stuck inside my guitar . . . . how am I supposed to get it out?

I saw a commercial for it..

"Borat : We laugh when we hear, ehh, teh Bush because bush is ehh the hair on the area of ehhh testicles."

That didn't make me laugh at all. It sounds like a joke an 11 year old kid would make. I haven't seen the movie though.

I have seen the film and it was amazingly funny. Possibly the funniest film I saw last year.
#15
I saw it, it was funny but a bit stupid and the humour was more potty humour than smart. The only bit i lol'd in was when he comes in kiss's the chick then says its his sister.
#16
I've seen the film and I have "Ali G in the USAiii"
Great movie, made me laugh uncontrolably, but the wrestling scene was kinda... >.<

I can see why some people may feel this way, but a lot of people miss the real point of the film. Sacha's aim is to expose average americans for what they really are. He disarms them by playing a strange, seemingly uncultured man, from a country that most americans have never heard of, let alone know where it is. This allows them to speak their mind. The humour, for me, comes from the insight into the tiny, bigoted minds of the people he meets along the way. It's not just about toilet jokes. You need to look beyond that.

Yes i can accept that i found it funny but really some of the stuff just took it a bit to far, eg. wrestling with the fat guy. Anyway the fact of the matter that he had to put potty humour in to get his real humour across so it would sell is a bad reflection on society.
#20
^ Yeah, that may be so. But I still think it's a great film. There aren't enough films like Borat that just make you cringe. I think it's hilarious that they got some of that stuff past the censors.

My girlfriend and I saw it, she whimpered and closed her eyes...

But we had sex later so it was ok lol.

It was funny but not hilarious. The original TV spots were better.


Yup. The ones that aired on BBC before that show became really famous, were a lot funnier.

i think so


Well, first, Borat isn't funny, Sacha Baron Cohen is funny, there would be no Borat without him.

And I really want to see the movie, and I know he's funny, but funniest ever? Meh.

Oh man.
I remember when Borat and Ali G and such were new and almost unheard of globally.
Like... they'd never been aired here in Australia (and not in America for some years later as well, I believe) and so we had to hire the videos. And they were FANTASTIC! No one knew about them, and when some people did, it was fun quoting stuff and talking like Ali G doing the finger snapping and everything. (eg. *SNAP* Booyakasha!)

Now EVERYONE knows Cohen (or rather... they "know" Borat and believe he's an actual person rather than a character). Everyone's always talking like him and quoting him...


Aah I miss the days you could talk and act like Borat or Ali G and still be funny.

Definately the downside of Cohen going so international.


EDIT: The main problem is that he can't really use those characters anymore now.
Cohen got to a point where he couldn't fool people in the UK with Ali G anymore, so he brought him back to life in the USA.
Now he can't do that anymore... not with Ali G, not with Borat... so he's left with the lame, extremely limited character of Bruno. (and unfortunately... a Bruno Movie is being made, so I hear.)


Such a shame... it was fantastic while it lasted though.
I didn't have a signature until now.

He's a very clever, funny and brave guy. But I wouldn't say he's the funniest man of all time, that would have to go to Bill Hicks in my book.

I agree with you, like the part the texan guy says that America is trying to kill the gay people, or like Throw the Jew Down the Well sketch from the show.

I saw it, and I didn't like it. I expected so much more from all the hype around it, but it hardly made me smile.

"Wrongfully Accused", "Talladega Nights" and "Austin Powers 2" were much funnier

I love how the fat guy was speaking armenian even though it's not an official language of kazakhstan.

And yes, it was a good movie. Though I wasn't too fond of the naked scene.
