Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan

Ever see a movie that was so anti-PC and ballsy that you couldn't help but enjoy how crass and wrong it is? That pretty much sums up Borat! There really is no plot, just an excuse for the lead character, played to the hilt by Sacha Baron Cohen, to travel around America pissing off as many people as he can with his racist rantings and idiotic observations. And what's funnier is that he actually points out how bigoted and stupid most Americans really are! Regardless, I had a blast watching this flick! It's hysterically funny from start to finish, and even when it does slow down to let us breathe it manages to entertain immensely. It's also filled with tons of quotable lines like "What's up Vanilla Face?" or "My wife's vagina hangs low like wizard's sleeve". Some unneeded stuff added for shock value, namely the chase scene where Borat and his sidekick Azamat run through a hotel stark naked for five minutes, really brought the film down a little bit. Still, it's a hoot!
