My head hurt after watching this movie from laughing so hard. It's just awesome. Again, not for everybody. But he is just a ridiculously talented comedian. It's completely over the top and just hysterical.Al Curbow said:He got punched out on the street in NY after hosting SNL. He was still acting like borat and he went up to the wrong dude and got a lesson in NY street etiquitte, LOL. It is funny how he gets the joke in about Barbara Bush in every interview he does.
Yeah, I was about to say...that swimsuit is one of the tamer parts. Let me put it another way: there is a ton of graphic nudity in the movie. All of it is repulsive. You keep on thinking that they're not going to to do this or that, they usually do this or that, repeatedly, and way worse than you could imagine.Mike Schoonbrood said:If you really have issues with the swimsuit then don't go see the movie :lol:
I had to clean this up a lot before I posted it. :lol:Borat is a reporter, born in 1972 in Kuçzek, Kazakhstan. He is the son of Asimbala Sagdiyev and Boltok the Rapist, who is also his maternal grandfather. He is also the former husband of Oksana Sagdiyev, who was the daughter of Mariam Tuyakbay and Boltok the Rapist. His relationship with his mother seems to be unpleasant, and Borat has commented that "she wishes she was raped by another man." Borat has a sister named Natalya, regarded as the fourth-best prostitute in Kazakhstan, and with whom he often fornicates, and a younger brother named Bilo, who is mentally retarded and must be kept locked behind a metal door or in a cage. In an interview, Borat said, "My brother Bilo has a small head but very strong arms. He have 204 teeth (193 in mouth 11 in nose)! You can do anything to him - he do not remember nothing!"
Borat attended the Astana University, where he studied English, journalism, and plague research. He has been married several times, once to his half-sister's plough. His first wife was Oksana Sagdiyev, another half-sister. She was shot and killed by neighbour Nursultan Tuyakbay, who mistook her for a bear, while accompanying her brother-in-law Bilo on a walk in the forest. Borat was largely unaffected by this event and even celebrated it, as he was able to buy a new wife who he claimed was not boring. He maintains extramarital relations with a girlfriend, a mistress and at least one prostitute. He has three children: 12-year-old Bilak, 12 year-old Biram (whose mother is Borat's sister, Natalya), and 11 year-old Hooeylewis (his favourite child); and seventeen grandchildren. Borat used to have a pet pig, Igor, whom he claims to have loved, although he and his family eventually did eat it, including the eyes. He has had many jobs ranging from ice maker to animal sperm retriever (he claims that rumours of a connection between these jobs are unfounded). He also claims to have previously worked as a Gypsy catcher, boasting that he can "hit a gypsy with a rock from fifteen meters away if chained ten if not". He also claims that he can carry a woman against her will and has done so, once carrying his future wife for 1600 meters (one mile).
Borat's hobbies [include] ping pong, disco dancing, sunbathing, shooting dogs, and taking pictures of women on the toilet. In addition to being a sexist and a homophobe, Borat is prejudiced against Jews, Uzbeks and Gypsies. Borat has said that he once suffered a "very bad Gypsy attack," in which his wife Oksana Sagdiyev's plough was stolen and "they touch my horse in very bad way; it get depressed for very long time".
I think that's the part that detracted a bit for me (not the wrestling, that was COMEDY GOLD). Very exaggerated stereotypes, and all the west coast/east coast reviewers are reading into it as a commentary on racial prejudice that's endemic in America. I've traveled a fair bit, I find a lot more inherent (and vocal) racism in different European and Asian cultures than I see, broadly, in middle America. I would like to think that the vast majority of fly-over states have progressed a lot further than people think. If anything, I think a lot of younger viewers would come away a little perplexed by all the anti-Semitic remarks, or at least wondering why the older people in the theater were laughing/gasping so hard.Maren Bell Jones said:Lord, this was a really "special" movie. I found that just about all the men were all laughing hysterically during the wrestling scene, but I found it a bit too Jackass-esque and a bit too much (though the exagerated censorship bar was very funny). I actually thought a lot of it was more sad than anything if there are folks that still think the way that they do. I've lived in either the south or the midwest my whole life (except about 4 years in Germany when I was younger) and thankfully, I've encountered few folks like that. Anyways, I think it was worth seeing to see and I found a lot of it funny, but the Jackass type stuff wasn't all that funny to me.
Isn't that the truth? This was the first time in a long time my wife and I had got out away from the kids like that...movie was $18, popcorn and cokes another $15 or so, babysitter $12/hr for 4 hours, and a few glasses of wine and an appetizer another $30 or so. It's pathetic when you think about it. I guess it's tacky for me to post this but it's pretty striking when you think about how much it costs to go to a movie and have a nice date night these days.ann freier said:woody, if you like it, i MIGHT :lol: however, as 1) much money as i make and 2) as much money as i make, i'll wait til it comes out on DVD, then rent it.
frickin' dog sports are a little spendy but worth it, i might add
We needed the break. We've been on about a two-month run of ear infections, fluids from both ends, and three-year-olds who think that any object around them is a tantrum-worthy possession. I at the point where I just say, "Yeah kid, it's your earth. All of it. Quit screaming."ann freier said:woody--for all that money, i sincerely hope you got lucky :lol: :lol:
kinda reminds me of a guy i know who considers "dinner & a movie" to be jack's pizza (frozen) and a video. the pathetic part about it is, he's such a talker, that he probably suckered (DON'T GO THERE) about a 1000 women with it. but NOT ME!!!!!!!!! 8) 8) 8)
