Isn't the next movie (and I guess the last) supposed to be about him?

Not bad! I like it if things end while they're still good. Good for Sasha Baron Cohen if he doesn't use his Borat character till nobody finds it funny anymore.

I think the guy has still much potential... Bruno is hilarious and I also enjoyed "Talladega Nights".



Samson was a biblical tough guy, but his dad Samsonite was even more of a hard case.

Still, it's probably the best thing to do. Quit while you're ahead! Something not everybody understands *cough* Simpsons * cough *

I won't miss Borat too much, but losing Ali G is a real shame.

I found that "Borat" was overused and not really funny anymore since most people knew him.

I find it sad that Ali G will be gone as well. Will be interesting to see what new character he will create.  Smile

It's true, but he was very funny before the movie came out.

That is sadder because he didn't have the public overuse that Borat did.

It is a shame but Bruno and any other character that he might come up with will be funny.

While the movie was pretty funny, that whole plot with Pamela Anderson kinda got annoying... I prefer the 5-10 min clips from his HBO days. The Philly PD and 'Throw the Jew Down the Well' ones are classic.

Good to see he's putting the guys to rest, hopefully to develop an equally hilarious character.

BTW, the driver's ed teacher is the latest in the line of people to sue because they appeared in the movie.

What I was always thinking about Borat is: Were there any protests against him by Jewish people since he used the " Jews" as some kind of scary creatures?

Or was it accepted since he is Jewish?  Smile

The Borat character has been around since the late 90s! It's run its course. Good for a laugh though.

I'll never forget when I first saw Ali G on TV. He was talking about the "youf in Asia" (euthanasia). He kept thinking it was the fault of the young people in Asia that doctors could end people's lives..

Agree. We didnt even watch the whole movie. So this is not a big loss for me.

I saw the movie (it was hilarious) but haven't seen the TV show, so not being used to Borat as a regular character, I won't be missing him. I like to think of him as the character of the movie and keep it at that, anyway.

Another character played by Sacha Baron Cohen, Adolfo Pirelli, died by means of a sharp blade.  Wink

Borat is controversial but I like, it very nice... How much?
