Borat Screened

Borat Borat and the ladies.

Of all the Ali G characters, Borat has always been my favorite. Playing the naive visitor from Kazakhstan, Sacha Baron Cohen gets away with much more than any other 'reporter' could. Because of the non-stop laughs derived from the character, I guess it was only a matter of time before a studio would go forward with a Borat movie.

The first trailer for Borat looked great and one had to wonder if Sacha had it in him to keep audiences laughing like that for the film's entire running time. Well, judging by the early reviews out of Comic Con, he may have done just that.

Borat Reviews

The good people over at AICN have received three separate reviews for Borat that all claim the film is hilarious
. Here are a collection of snippets below:

Yes, Borat gets to LA- and what happens there may be the funniest part of the movie. Bottom line here is that Borat is a great comedy. I laughed from start to finish. And when I wasnít lauging I was smiling. The film may not be for everybody but it was definitely for this reviewer.

Actually the full title of the film is Borat: Cultural Learnings of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (say that five times fast) and itís quite simply the funniest film of the year. In fact, I don't think there will be a funnier movie in 2006 (perhaps Talladega Nights, but I doubt it). There have been other flicks in the past few months that made me laugh (Thank You For Smoking is a top fiver if ever there was one) but in terms of sheer hilarity, nothing touches Borat. I laughed so hard during the first half of this insane road trip movie, that I nearly fainted from exhaustion.

Sasha Baron Cohen (known to many as the zany Ali G) is a comedic force to be reckoned with in this film. He's simply fearless. He'll do absolutely anything to get the laugh. This includes rolling around naked with the rather large Ken Davitian in what is perhaps one of the most nauseating, audacious, hilarious sequences in comedy history. What's more, a funny thing happens in Borat. By the end of the picture, I found this clueless man-child kind of endearing - something I never thought would happen upon viewing the first reel.

Funniest movie of the year? That is a big statement. Check out the entire Borat reviews over at
