Running Time: 84 mins

Borat is an American film about a Kazakh journalist who is sent to America to make a film about learning their Western culture, but he encounters numerous problems along the way.

This is surely one of the most cringeworthy and frustrating films that I have ever seen, however it also goes down as one of the funniest. I usually despise Sacha Baron Cohen, but he was absolutely hilarious in this film, and every single scene and mishap was just so ridiculous.

As many people outside the USA do, it’s funny to see a foreigner annoy the Americans, and this took it above and beyond, with all of the insults and other mistakes that Borat makes being brilliantly hilarious.

The one criticism of this film and title character that I would have would be the fact that Borat just sounds way too Italian to be Kazakh, but that also made it even funnier.

Overall, I’ll give this a 7.9 because it was a hilarious film, even though I was cringing and becoming extremely annoyed in nearly every scene throughout…
