I saw Borat. It was very funny. I found myself laughing out loud quite a bit. Sasha Baron Cohen, as Borat, has indeed taken the mantle from Peter Sellers and Andy Kaufman, and stepped it up into the modern day. It's also brilliant in how it exposes ignorance and idiocy across the nation. (There's a very telling scene with Borat at a rodeo, where he gets the man he's talking with to expose his deepest prejudices, most likely within a three minute conversation.)
But you know what? It's not the end all be all of comedies. It is, in essence, a smarter Jackass. It's comprised of tiny sketches that add up to a whole, but with each vignette topping the previous in terms of what limits can be pushed (and in making me lose bladder control through laughter), I kind of forget what comes before it.
It's also interesting to watch, knowing that those frat boy idiots in the RV are trying to sue the producers, claiming that they had no idea they would be in a movie that would air in the states. These jackasses are, ironically, most likely the same stock as the guys who are going around now quoting this movie relentlessly. Ridonkulous, this circle of life.
Anyway, it's good. It's really funny. But it's not the last comedy you'll ever want to see. (Although after the wrestling scene, you might not want to look at anything ever again.)
PS- I sure love it when you do your Borat impersonations for me. Please make sure you always do one when speaking with me. Because it's SO funny!
