I went to go see the special screening here in Minneapolis but the damn theater filled up before we could get in! I guess I'm gonna have to wait until Saturday. I'm a huge Borat fan!

As a regular cinema goer I will give you my unbiased view.  

It was a 10 minute sketch dragged out for 89 minutes. It was a load of rubbish. Yes, there were some very funny stand-out moments like the naked wrestling in the hotel, the etiquette dinner party where he shits in a bag and they threaten to get him arrested, the old racist guy at the rodeo and the neighbour with the mini ipod. But it's just basically anti-american and the whole plot revolves around Borat going to LA to meet his dream woman (Pamela Anderson). The best line in the film is (regarding Pamela) "I want to give her a romantic explosion across her stomach!"

Give it a miss!

I haven't seen it yet, but this is what worries me. Borat is using mostly material that we've seen before, but putting it in a movie designed for American consumption. I really want to watch it, but I'm worried it might be somewhat disappointing.

Although American comedies hardly make me laugh...this one exceeded every of my expectations!!!! I was laughing out loud all the time.
The only thing that let me down was the unexpected and not 'very happy' end of the movie. Usually in comedies of this type, you can guess the end from the first 5' of the movie.

Although I haven't seen the movie yet, I have seen all of the Borat skits from Da Ali G Show on HBO. I wouldn't classify it so much anti-American because he's showing problems that still exist in America. But in doing so many cases it also shows things that are right.

It's not anti-American. It satirises the segment of America that has a misguided, media influenced perception of the rest of the world, and is poking fun at some of these self-absorbed ethno-centrics. There are plenty of other shows/movies that do this, (eg South park, Team America - World Police).

Who decides what's "misguided"? Why is it okay to make fun of certain Americans, for example, and not -- for example -- ethnic people, for their mannerisms or beliefs?

Because making fun of a group based on ethnic traits or behaviour is inappropriate, (most of the time). Self-absorbtion and ethnocentricity is not anything to do with being American, it's merely a trait that exists quite strongly in America, (and many other countries for that matter)

How about no group at all?

Some people are so fond of telling us how humanity must "evolve". They would be among the first to revile jokes about ethnic differences or stereotypes. But if it's about certain kinds of Americans, that's somehow okay. Why is that?

Why is tolerance only one-way, where conservatives are supposed to tolerate things that liberals want them to tolerate, and yet some liberals feel free to bash anyone they want?

Think of evangelicals, for example, or people who believe in traditional values. And, from one account I read, this Sacha Baron Cohen, the actor playing "Borat", seems to thinks it's just fine to make fun of Southerners as "dumb hicks". He has his character act in such a way to make some of these folk look like complete idiots. Why not make fun of urban blacks, too? Or is that politically incorrect?

I would respect liberals a lot more if they practiced more of what they preached. If it's wrong to make fun of black cultural groups, it's also wrong to make fun of white cultural groups.

However, why aren't the behaviors of the broad cultural group that resides in the South considered off limits, I wonder?

It may seem nice to make fun of Americans, but I won't exactly be waiting with bated breath to see a film making fun of people from other countries, such as Mexico. True, Kazahkstan is implicitly made fun of, but the film, from all accounts, is focused more on the foibles of America.

How about, next time, we make a film making fun of the French? Or Mexicans?

Sacre bleu!

I don't think it'll happen, folks. Because there are too many people who -- rightfully -- would protest against this kind of exploitation. Of course, Americans, on the other hand, take these things in stride. Which is why some groups in our country are such an easy target, and others are not.

I went to see it Friday night/Sat morning, at midnight...In the IMAX on 68th Street in Lincoln Square. They had SO many people, they put it in the IMAX. *THAT* was funny. Every 18 - 30 year old in Manhattan was there, I swear.

The movie, in parts, had me in tears. Other parts made me go "Oh dear god!" Other parts made me go "WTF?"?

It was worth the $12.00 and ridiculous line waiting to file into the IMAX.

I love the guys show, but I think it's best in short bursts and not dragged out for 1.5 hours.

Consider having a few beers before you go, it might make the WTF? parts more funny.

But the whole point of SBC's humour, through all his characters, is to twist the prejudices 180 degrees. His favourite expression as Ali G (an allegedly black person) is "You is only saying that 'cos I is black!" His white victims clearly cannot cope with being accused of being racist towards a black person who is anything but! Ditto with all his anti-semetic humour, he's Jewish.

The astonishing thing is how many other people he can get to agree to his outrageous "views". He's very clever at picking up peoples prejudices and giving them a tweak:

To a stiff upper lip type at Henley Regatta - "In my country we have saying, show me woman with brain and I show you horse with wings!" brings a response along the lines of "Ha ha old chap, know what you mean, but can't say that sort of thing here any more."

How would you expect a panel of feminists to react when he says "Things improving in my country. Now women can ride inside of bus!"? It's irrelevant that they're white American feminists, he's just winding them up.

Ditto telling anti-hunt protesters that "in Kazakhstan we hunt bears" produced the inevitable reaction, which he then mollifies by saying "It doesn't happen any more." before adding the killer blow "There are no bears left!"

If you don't think he's funny, you may need to see a doctor. wink

He is not just making fun of Southerners. There are many things that show how comforting the average southerners are, only a few skits does he show the racist/prejudice ones. And those people are definitely misguided.

Actually Cohen did make fun of the French in his last movie "Talladega Nights" when he played a gay French Nascar driver.

Here's how I felt walking out of the theater:

What we just saw was one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in this rambling, incoherent film was the dialouge even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this audience is now dumber for having listened to it. I award borat no points, and may God have mercy on his soul.

What we just saw was one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever seen. At no point in this rambling, incoherent film was the dialouge even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this audience is now dumber for having listened to it. I award borat no points, and may God have mercy on his soul.

Is that you penguin? I'm gonna get you penguin! BTW, I'll take "My wife is a dirty, dirty tramp" for 10 points. He called the shit poo.

Here's how I felt walking out of the theater:

You didn't get it. I'm sorry for you. If you had got it, it might have even enlighted you a little.

But somehow you think "Billy Madison" is funnier? Wow.

However, why aren't the behaviors of the broad cultural group that resides in the South considered off limits, I wonder?

FYI - He does poke fun at other groups in the movie, not just southerners. Why not watch the movie before bashing it? Or maybe become more familiar with Cohen's work before assuming that he's a damn liberal and all he does is make fun of white conservatives.

I think this is a complete "hit or miss" movie, which I think depend entirely on the mood you're in when you walk in that theatre. Walk in with your arms crossed and tense, you won't like it. I couldn;'t of been in a better mood when I saw it and I cried the whole time... "my moustache still smells of your testies".

Some serious moments tough, that guy telling him to shave his moustache and the whole spiel on the "others".

Throwing money at the cockroaches... another good one.

I actually thought it was pretty funny. I also felt like I dropped about a dozen IQ points by the time the credits rolled.
