Maybe I was just being weird that night. I didn't think it was as good as I thought it was going to be. I went in on opening night Soo ooo pumped up. I laughed my butt off, but in the end I was still a little disappointed. Don't get me wrong I give it an 8. Just not the 10 that I thought it was going to be, sorry to be the downer on this thread.
Saw it Saturday night. Didn't realize one of my local stations here in town was "punked" by Borat. The crowd clapped when they realized it was one of our stations. But I haven't laughed that hard in a long time. I'm not the biggest fan of "ambush humor" (as I like to call it), but it was still really, really good. And I'm still trying to figure out if Pam Anderson was in on it.
I did hear, though, that one of those South Carolina frat boys left the university over the movie. I'm in no way defending their behavior or what they said, but allegedly the producers got them drunk. Admittedly, that probably didn't take much coaxing. But I'm still not sure whether I agree with the approach to getting "normal" people in the movie, and the consequences that follow.
Ah, it's the Ali G movie!! I love Ali G. He is so funny. I love the bit when he is on a farm interviewing a vet as in veterinarian, and calls the farm a "crap zoo", and why are there so many vets in Vietnam. Do they have a lot of sick animals? *LOL*
Borat Film Banned in Russia as `Offensive' by Movie Regulator
By Hannah Gardner
Nov. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Russia won't let local cinemas show the comedy film ``Borat,'' a spoof movie depicting a misogynist, anti-Semitic, homophobic reporter from Kazakhstan, over concern it could offend audiences.
``We decided not to grant this film a cinema license because there are moments in the film which could offend some viewers' religious or national sensibilities,'' Yuri Vasyuchkov, head of the film licensing department at Russia's Moscow-based Federal Culture and Cinematography Agency, said today by phone.
