Review

Our Score
For those unfamiliar with Borat, he is a leading Kazakhstani journalist who, for this project, travels America learning about its culture. He is also a complete fabrication, the work of Ali G creator Sacha Baron Cohen. Thus his scatologically uproarious investigation includes a scene in which he attends a posh dinner party and returns from the bathroom with his excrement in a plastic bag and presents it to the hostess. He also destroys a Civil War memorabilia shop and lets loose a chicken on the New York subway. A minor niggle is that close examination shows at least a handful of the sequences to have been set up to some degree. And in cinematic terms it is absolutely nothing special: there's no real reason for it to be a movie at all - its natural home may well be on DVD. But as an example of a comedian willing to take absurd risks for his art, this film - one of the funniest of 2006 - will probably never be surpassed.

Summary

A Kazakhstani journalist is sent to the United States to learn about the country and its customs. However, when the inquisitive reporter stumbles across an episode of Baywatch featuring Pamela Anderson, he becomes convinced she is his future bride and embarks on a reckless mission to track her down. Spoof documentary, starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Ken Davitian and Pamela Anderson.
