Fake Kazakhstani journalist Borat is sent to the United States of America in order to report on some of what makes that country great. Once there though, Borat falls in love with one Pamela Anderson and decides to trek cross-country, with his sidekick producer, in the hopes of meeting the lovely actress, and marrying her. What ensues is a mix of real confrontations with actual Americans and an obvious plotline to join those scenes and turn the TV show sketches into a full-blown movie.

I have only seen Ali G in da USA, and yeah it was horrible, because it showed some of the real attitudes of some American people, and believe me that was HORRIBLE!

Every Englishman must have a hobby. Some like to collect the stamp, some like to make the jam, but the most fun is to a kill a little animal with a shotgun or rip them up with wild dog.

You know he is a comedian playing a character? He uses the role to expose the prejudices of other people. But it has been found out that some of the people in the film knew it was a joke and just played along.

I am absolutely 100% going to see this movie. Although the Ali G movie was a disappointment (Ali G in the series was great - he reminded me a lot of Chris Morris' 'Uzi Lover' sketch from The Day Today), Borat looks absolutely hilarious. Sasha Baron Cohen is a very, very clever man ;).

Illuminati - ever seen Brass Eye? If you like Borat, you'll love this - it's a series from the late 1990's that takes the mick out of those over-the-top political documentaries. The most wonderful thing about it is that Chris Morris (and absolute GENIUS) does a Borat all the time with different characters, fooling big-headed celebrities to talk about phoney causes and concerns, highlighting the fact that they aren't as big nor as clever as the think they are, and that anyone will jump onto anything if they think it'll get them a bit of publicty...

Heh, I actually wonder if that is the case - they used to say that about Morris, too. And then try to sue him on the quiet... they'd make out they were just 'playing along' publicly because they don't want to be seen as making an idiot of themselves. I'll make my judgement as to whether they're playing along or not when I see the film :)

Most of it is real Elysia, some of it set up with actors to make the story flow, but most of them, it is real people. It's very very funny indeed!

The BBC radio presenter said that one or two of the people did know, but most didn't. Here is how they did it.

the day before the interview Sasha baron cohen's(sp?) producers and whatnot visit the person who will be interviewed by Borat. They pay them some money and get them to sign a release form in advance. Then Borat comes along the next day and they do the filming.

I've got to admit i do want to see this film, it looks really funny.
I know lots of people hate him due to the fact he insults people's religion,sex,gender etc,but the thing is not to take it serious.
