Borat - My Review:


Yeah, I'm sure portions were set-up (but counting the number of lawsuits, maybe not that many). Even still, I knew going in it was not a REAL documentary, so although some of it was staged, it was all still funny to me.

Still, the best part of it for me, or maybe the saddest, was the reactions of our fellow Americans which showed their true colors.

Overall, a really funny movie, as well as a sad commentary of our US and A.

By the way, I like Jack Black and all, but his Tenacious D flick looks really dumb and not funny AT ALL. I plan to never see it.

The first ten minutes of Tenacious D are the greatest first ten minutes in the history of movies. Okay, maybe not, but damn I thought I was in for a ride. And then it died. And kept dying.

But I found it better than "Let's Go to Prison." :)

That sucks, Black is a talent, but he needs the right material to show it off, and a good director backing him up.

I thought Borat was OK. I did laugh, but I'm in no hurry to see it again.

I don't really see it as a commentary on America as you can find that sort of stuff going on everywhere, and they obviously want to use the most controversial (funny) material they film to go up on the screen.

I also don't like stuff that generates humor by lying to people.
