I think the movie looks stupid. At first I was willing to give it a chance in theaters, but then I heard "My name is Borat. You come see my moviefilm?" too many times from my boyfriend. Now, of course that isn't the ONLY reason why I'd rather wait 'til one of my friends goes out and buys the film to watch it. From the beginning I thought it looked kinda stupid. My boyfriend just didn't help matters.

The movie wasn't the funniest thing ever, but it sure did make me laugh.

I laughed mainly because of how ridiculous and nonsensical the whole movie was, and it was very funny. Poor Pamela Anderson!

I'll go and eventually see the movie, probably when it comes out to DVD or something, I'm not really a fan of Cohen. I've seen the trailer for the movie when seeing Little Miss Sunshine, but I shrugged my shoulders at it.

I refuse to see the movie I so desperately wanted to see not too long ago based on recent news so stated in the article linked above. I cannot morally know the wrongs he did to those people, pay ten dollars and laugh at the expense of other people's misery. That my friends would be called being an asshole.

I found this ironic: "They made us look like primitives," said Nicu Tudorache. I wonder, perhaps because they are a primitive nation? I don't think there's any way they can afford to sue anyone, for a number of reasons. They're too poor and gave consent to be filmed. Win against a company with a higher budget than their country, that sounds great.
I would think the slim minority of people would take the village part so literally, one would have to be as uneducated as the villagers themselves.

Meh. If I wanted satire, I'd read Swift.

If Kazakhstan among others would just ignore him and not draw more controversy to this movie, people wouldn't flock to it as much. It's their ridiculous battle with Cohen that gives him so much free publicity and fuels this mad hard-on the country's been giving him with their sheep-like support.

Congratulations, ladies and gentlemen, you just created another Michael Moore and yet another Passion of the Christ.

I'm sure eventually I'll give this movie a fair chance and see it and I'll probably laugh, while watching it bootleg on a friend's computer.

I knew full well what he did to those people, but still the movie was a bit of comic genious.

The fight with Azamat was disturbing, but the rest of the movie was great.

"He;s a genuine chocolate face!"

Haha, greatness.

I saw it and instantly fell in love with it! I love his whole for travelling across the US too! But the part where he fights with Azamat was very...disturbing..

I actually hated it! no seriously I did. Eveyone told me how great it was so I went anfd saw it, and I laughed like twice.

The black part was funny but not when I saw it since it was on the commerical which was shown every 6 seconds on TV

I just thought it was dragged out. When I think about it now its funny, but not when I saw it

Spoiler:
I actually thought about leaving when Borat was fighting azamat for beating off to pameala. I was that fed up with the movie, that an dthat part WAS REALLY GAY

Hands down, funniest movie of the year.

Sup with your vanilla face. I saw it twice, and I'll be buying it. Cohen wins.

Its a shame the Ali G movie sucked terribly, but the show still rocks and this movie is a classic in my book.
