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

"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

"An example of Cohen's work where his publicity stunts leading up to the film were funnier than the actual film. There are plenty of funny moments, but for every funny moment is a stupid one. I think Cohen is very talented but is sometimes misguided when trying to shock the audience."

An average movie

“Like most of us, I was really impressed by ‘Borat’ which must be one of the funniest movies made in the last 10 years and, from then on, it seemed that Sacha Baron Cohen would become the next comedic genius. Then, he used the same trick for ‘Bruno’ and I thought it didn’t work that well this time. With this in mind, I tempered my expectations for his next feature, and this time, he made a smart move and decided to try something different , which was a more traditional comedy with a real plot and no semi-documentary shenanigans. Eventually, I thought it was not bad but nothing really amazing, I’m afraid. The point is that, even though the approach was different, the humor was still the same and I think I’m getting a little bit tired of his really crude jokes. Furthermore, the ” read more

"The sad thing is that Sacha Baron Cohen has a great sense of humour but he tends to waste 70% of his movies on vagina jokes, but somehow that 30% redeems the film for me. Also, Anna Faris seems a little bit less annoying when she's not blonde. "
