Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev travels to America to make a documentary. As he zigzags across the nation, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences. His backwards behavior generates strong reactions around him exposing prejudices and hypocrisies in American culture.

Some of you may have thought less of this movie. Some of you may have liked it. I've never known of the character "Borat" until seeing this movie, but I must say, I loved him. The way he keenly pokes fun at American culture, and our way of life and thinking, is absolutely genius --and genuine. Although, I feel that a lot of people will not appreciate this movie, and will be offend --which is fine, because we're all entitled to our own opinion; and what good is mine, if you can't share yours.
On a side note, for anyone who enjoyed Borat, I stumbled upon a clever little video made by some kids, I think some of you may enjoy.
This is Darius Bieber, and this is my First Movie Review, but, I will review as many as I can for your enjoyment.
This is a movie about a guy from Kazakhstan (Borat) and his friend (Azamat) on a trip to U.S.A. to capture the greatness of this country and bring it back to Kazakhstan. On his journey, he finds love (Pamela Anderson) and also many new things he does not have back in his home county (toilet, elevator, Christianity, etc...).
This is one of my favorite comedy movies I have ever seen. I would recommend it to anyone of age.
This movie is rated "R" for a lot of things including nudity, language, etc...
Another Movie Review by:
SHIT!SHIT!SHIT!SHIT!! This movie was terrible. I have to say that Borat, was the worst movie I have ever seen. The endless toilet humar was terrible and only someone completely retarted would enjoy it. I must say that the scene with Borat and the manager fighting...NAKED, would turn a child gay. It was disgusting and if I could, i would burn every copy of this movie and throw the creaters in there with them. And if I could I would give this movie an even lower rating because it was SHIT!!!!!!!! I was only able to bring my self to laugh at one small scene.
Borat came to the U.S. and A to make a movie-film. He wanted to learn about the Ã¢â‚¬Å“greatest country in the worldÃ¢â‚¬Â and make a documentary to benefit his homeland of Kazakhstan. The result? To say the least Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a film that shows off how not so great America is; and a man, Sacha Baron Cohen, who has quite possibly exposed himself as the funniest man on the planet.
As the sex-crazed, Jew hating, tactless Borat, British comedian Baron Cohen lights up the silver screen with hijynx, and stuns his audience with painful amounts of laughter. The film is an outward gesture of gratuitous irreverence, following Borat as he travels through America, meeting with some of the most unbelievable characters that our country has to offer. From the edgy New Yorkers who threaten to kick his ass on the subway to the anti-homosexual, gun toting Bush-ite Rodeo manager who advises him to shave his mustache to make him look less like a terrorist to the Right wing Evangelists that try and save his soul and introduce him to Jesus Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it is America that seemingly becomes the butt end of each joke. The film, on some higher level of genius on the part of Cohen, exposes some of the Ã¢â‚¬Å“lowsÃ¢â‚¬Â of American culture Ã¢â‚¬â€œ a tragic but hilarious sight to be seen.
Another hilarious sight comes at the expense of the lead man himself, and his antics that keep the audience laughing from bell to bell. To be honest, I have not laughed this hard at a film in a long, long time. From his mannerisms to the audacity that he has for showing some skin, Cohen makes every single minute of this film funny. And just like any other comedy, there are moments where the humor must take a back seat to plot development, but not for long in this case. It seems as if every 2 minutes Borat is finding some way to get himself into some predicament that leaves the audience laughing so hard that they are on the verge of having an accident.
But what makes Borat so special is not just CohenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s uninhibited way, but how well the film works on a whole. Just as Cohen has paraded around from interview to interview never breaking character for a moment, the film does the same. From minute one it looks like a Kazakhstani documentary, and it never breaks its stride even for a moment. The production values can sometimes be inconsistent, making it easy to tell which scenes were stages and which were Ã¢â‚¬Å“on the flyÃ¢â‚¬Â, but that doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take away from the filmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ability to be absolutely hilarious.
And it is that factor, in the end, that is the overriding truth of BoratÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s movie-film: it is 110%, indisputably hilarious. You have to be able to handle some gratuitous male nudity, some anti-Semetic jokes and of course Ã¢â‚¬â€œ lots of painfully true forms of Americana, but in the end you will laugh your ass off. While Borat himself may be a bit ignorant to the ways of America, his creator and the man behind the mustache is a genius when it comes to making America laugh.

WORST MOVIE EVER! Sorry to all who liked it, but it sucked. Stupid, disgusting, with no perpose whatsover. I am so glad it didn't win best picture, nor got an oscar nominated best picture. This really all I say: WORST MOVIE EVER MADE: THERE GOD DAMN BETTER NOT BE A BORAT 2!
This movie should not get any ratings at all!!!!!!!!IT IS ROTTEN!!!!!!!!!!!
To all parents: If you really care about your children then please please spare them from this movie which will only bring mental damage to them. (On the day I went to see the movie about 90% of teenagers and young adults attended this movie).
The movie is absolutely inhumane, extremely offensive towards believes of any kind, disgusting, overall: sick to the highest degree possible. And the saddest part is that with this movie the makers prove themselves to be idiots in the highest rank, and should be banned from the movie industry FOREVER!!!!!
The fact that this movie was allowed to come out in the theatre is the worst of all. And I absolutely despise the coward who came up with this absolutely idiotic idea.
Considering that Americans are already sitting in a s**t hole(pardon me for that language)as it is, they should think about proper education of their children instead of providing their nation with such idiotic movie productions.
I am extremely shocked by what is happening to North Americans (and not only). Where have their leaders gone wrong to raise such a primitive nation that would allow such films to be filmed and produced.....these people should be shot.....because they put the rest of the nation into a big pest whole.
In conclusion....If you really enjoy watching gay sex, naked fat men wrestling, feces revealed publicly, inappropriate showings of male genital areas, and women's breast milk to be turned into "Kazakh cheese"....go ahead and watch the movie and kill your braincells!!!!!
With this movie review I hope I made myself clear!
PS. I am still terrified that I have paid $8 to see this movie....my brain still hurts.
