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

Has anyone else been paying attention to this film? I just saw the trailer last weekend, and I must say that I can't wait for it! It just looks so damn funny in the trailers, that it's going to be a must see for me this November!

If you havn't heard of it already, it's basically a documentary of a fake Kazakhstani journalist traveling across the U.S, and trying to "integrate" and learn about American society.

And the trailers:

Oh man.. I hate that guy so much..
You know why? Because that a...le is making fun of my country!!!!

Before any of you guys watch it, just remember that everything he says is NOT TRUE!!!
When they show him with his family in what he calls Kazakhstan, it was not filmed in Kazakhstan. It was filmed somewhere else..

I mean he is funny, I always laugh when I watch it, but just remember that anything he says, shows or does, it is completely not true..
I heard that "Ali G" (Borat) was made fun of in school by some guys from Kazakhstan, and that's why he is doing it now..

To be honest, I will go and watch it when it comes out, just to see what the hell he is going to say about my country..
One reason he made this full movie, is that he was almost sued by Kazakhstani government after MTV award show when he appeared with a fake president.

P.S. Don't lock this topic plz.. I wanna see what people will say when they watch this movie.

May be a rumor, but I actually heard Kazakhstan was taking legal action against the film?

In any event, I'll probably see it, but not necessarily because I want to. Just seems really juvenile to me. But then again, everything that guy does is.

Hey I get it that Kazak's are not happy about the way they are portrayed by this guy, but for the government to go as far as to sue, is just plain stupid. Kazahkstan would be wise to clean up the image of it's government abroad, more specifically that of it's autocratic president Nazarbayev. Sure he has done a lot to modernize the country, but he has also done it at the expense of opposing views, freedom of the press, and criticism. He has also eroded constitutional powers and has slowly but surely concentrated most powers on himself and his family. Lastly, the guy has personally transferred state funds amounting to a minimum of one billion dollars (Verified) to offshore accounts under his name. These are the kind of behaviors that stink of strongman politics which are succesful at either creating much needed structural and institutional change, or destroying the very institutions a country needs for long term operation and development.

Ali G and "Borat" got old in the UK about 10 years ago.

He was funny, but his acts just got old really quickly.

Eh I still think Borat and Ali G are funny, been with them since they started and going to stick with them till they die

Borats response to the Kazakhstan government sueing Sasha Cohen(the actor) was " I agree with my country and we should sue that jew"

a typical borat response

Sacha Baron Cohen's Borat act is one of the greatest of all times! I've been watching this show forever and I can't wait for the movie!

Ehhhh...yigshemesh! I like you!

You're from Kazahkstan!?!? Awesome!!! And by the way, he based the Borat character off of a Russian guy he met.

I can't wait to see this. Saw the trailer during talladega nights. I mean, its a comedy cact, you have to take everything he says with a grain of salt and laugh at it. I was born in a similiar country, the Republic of Georgia and all I can say that if there's anyone who thinks that khazakstan is truly what its like in the movie is just ignorant. Its a movie. Its made to be funny

Saw the movie at the Toronto Film Festival (unfortunately not the showing where Borat came out in a donkey cart). Great movie. Will see it again.

I personally cant wait to see it. i think his act is hysterical! i know it is all fake but it doesent mean its not funny. I grew up in saudi arabia and i think the reason why i like it is because of all the dumb saudis he reminds me of. the ones that dont use proper english and just have no idea what the are talking about (I had one kid call me a hot dog once). its just funny and that is why i will see it. has anyone seen his appearance on conan o'brien by the way? great stuff!
