Borat Review

Oh. My. GOD!

This was the funniest fucking movie I have seen in…in…well, maybe ever.

Won’t give anything away. Just go see it right now. This needs to be seen in a theater full of people.

Go right now.

I’m getting ready to leave as I write this, will report back later!

We snuck into it last night because it was already sold out. My face hurts from laughing. My eyes hurt from watching the scene that follows Borat’s producer desecrating his beloved “Pamela”.

Definitely funny. If you loved Borat on Ali G then you’ll love this movie. Sasha Baron Cohen can’t be accused of half-assing his work.

Do you think this movie will make benefit the glory nation of Kazahkstan?

the only bad thing about this movie is that sometimes you cant hear because of the thunderous laughter in the theater. absolute classic, funniest movie in a long time.

good grief i’m suffering from borat hype overload. i’m sure it’s awesome but goddamn the hype makes me ill.

I know what you are saying and I was concerned that it couldn’t live up to the hype but, no - this one exceeds it wildly. Better get used to hearing about this movie 'cus your going to be hearing about it for a LONG TIME. I think it’s the funniest movie I’ve ever seen and I’m no spring chicken (43).

Cancel whatever plans you have this weekend and go see it!!!

it is without a doubt the funniest movie i’ve ever seen. absolutely loved it.

i can appreciate that, but my resistence is strong. i feel if see this movie i’m giving in to the same hype machine that’s telling me to buy the new jessica simpson album.

My gut was so sore from laughing after I was wondering if I got an ab workout out of it. just god damn fucking hilarious, start to finish.

Go see it, if you don’t like it I will buy that Jessica Simpson album from you.

same thing- my face literally ached after this movie- laughing was painful but it was so damn funny. absolutely hilarious.

I was supposed to see this in NYC tonight after seeing Carlos Mencia live but didnt have time.

DEFINITELY seeing it tomorrow.

Thanks for the non-spoilers Harris. Glad you didnt ruin it like the Transformers script! :slight_smile:

alright man if it comes here i might go. but i won’t be “changing my plans” to see it…“factotum” is playing now. i thought that was pretty funny… but you’re saying this is the sort of movie i should funnel a 12 pack and strap on some depends before going in ? if i go and this guy is about as funny as will fuckin farrell, and i go home in a dry diaper, there’s NO WAY i’m giving up that jessica record.

It was so funny I want to see it again.

I’m resisting the urge to quote a line.

No sign of it here in Japan. I am distressed! Good job there is so much of it on the internet!

Were you guys fans before the movie? I ask because I was leary of the movie just rehashing his bits from HBO and some of his UK stuff. Did it?

Funniest. Movie. Ever.

Yes, I’ve seen it twice now and it definately is the funniest movies I can remember seeing.
