I saw this movie earlier today with my father and sister; we all had high expectations for it, but it turned out to be absolutely vile. God-awful, nasty, brutish; few words can describe how utterly crude this movie is.
The first attacking point is that, as I said, the movie is very carnal; much of the humour focuses around Borat being a genuine dumbarse around people, causing mischief and mayhem and massive destruction that leads to the desecration of people's lives. He's literally exploited almost everyone he's come in contact with.
At that, the utter disgusting humour would have made me puke had I swallowed any food prior to watching such a travesty; there's one scene where Borat walks in on his producer, masturbating (yes, ON SCREEN) to a picture of Pamela Anderson, where Borat promptly starts to wrestle him naked, and the producer sticks his fat smelly arse in Borat's face.
Honestly, none of that low-brow crack is funny at all, and given Borat's politically incorrect representation of the Kazhakstani people is demeaning, people are basically praising this guy for being a "douche" in the most extreme sense of the word.
Sure, if the humour was intelligent like with Yakov Smirnoff, I'm sure I would have liked it better; but, it's not. It's more putrid than even the grimiest movie I could ever imagine.
I title it an cosmic, universal and eternal failure. If Borat would have wanted me to give him stars for this picture, I would do so most gladly, but only with a black eye too.
