I used to think that the main reason why I enjoyed both Borat and Bruno was mostly due to the brilliance of the sociopolitical satire that each of those films brought to the table. But now I realize that those two movies had something else (an added push, if you will): both movies delivered their sociopolitical satire through humor of the "I CANNOT believe they just did that!" variety. Borat and B... read more

Gleeful fun, but too calculated

"America! The birthplace of AIDS!"

Who would've thought that Sacha Baron Cohen had another new character in him? The talented performer fooled the world using the personas of Ali G, Borat and Bruno, and now Cohen has re-teamed with director Larry Charles to introduce another comic creation for another hard-R comedy destined to be both controversial and polarising. Like Cohen and Cha... read more

Sacha strikes again with another guilty pleasure.

Following the experiences of Borat in 2006 and Bruno in 2009, any mockumentary involving Sacha Baron Cohen will either become a huge controversial offense to specific viewers or turn out to be just a traditional laugh out loud comedy. Once again, Baron Cohen decides to mock another social class of individuals which could become the most insulting so far. Although, there were still the few abusive ... read more

"Watched on: YouTube Pros: Not... quite as bad as 'Borat'; I might have snickered once or twice; Kevin Corrigan and Ben Kingsley appear in it (WHY, I'm not sure; you can do better, Kevin and Ben!); New York City setting. Cons: Again, while not as obnoxiously unfunny as 'Borat' (or as, say, 'The Interview'), this one still isn't NEARLY as clever as it thinks it is; and, regarding the underlying political theme, could Aladeen's speech to his little hippie girlfriend in the movie's climactic scene"
