Chalk up another early review that claims Borat is simply too funny.
Borat Movie Trailer
Of all of Sacho Baron Cohen's character Borat was always my favorite. Ali G was funny but he got on my nerves; the gay Austrian was good too, but he also had his limits. Fortunately for me, Sacha chose Borat to become a feature film and it looks like the result couldn't have been better. A while back we posted an early review for the film that claimed it had the reviewer rolling in the aisles and now there is a second review that couldn't agree more.
The good people over at FirstShowing have posted their report on Borat after viewing the MPAA-less film at Comic Con.
Let me first say that I am a HUGE Borat fan, as well as a fan to of all of Sacha’s characters, and my expectations for this movie were high. Now let me say this, my expectations were not only blown away, but this is THE Borat movie every single fan has been dying to see. Rather than give a synopsis of the film, which I would not want to ruin the experience for the fans, I am going to talk about why I feel this is the best comedy that has come out in a long time!
The humor in this movie is not intended for everyone. Many people will find it offensive. This is one of the things I enjoyed most about this film. Comedy for me is not about being able to laugh just at someone or something, but to be able to laugh at yourself. Borat pokes fun at gays, Jews, Christians, gypsies, bears, and about anything else you can possibly think of. But understanding that his comments are only intended to bring out the best, or worst, reactions from people is what makes it hilarious.
To summarize my quick little review, I was thoroughly impressed with the audience reaction to this film as well as my full enjoyment of the movie.
