Aussie boy's thoughts
Borat is absolutely fearless when he proceeds to being comprehensively appalling, downright offensive and utterly hilarious. No rational human will deny that this mockumentary’s comedy is excessively cringeworthy and outrageous, certainly proving it’s neither kid-friendly or intended for the easily offended. An audience must strictly require a horrendous sense of humour in order to enjoy it. The laughs are constantly vulgar, exploitive and disgusting.
Borat’s abominable humour may be the lead subjects of all the reviews you’ll encounter, but you need to prepare for the fact that it will constantly have you laughing until you’re choking. Finally getting to the topic of Sacha Baron Cohen, his performance of the creative character without absolutely losing it at some point is just brilliant.
However, throughout the amusing and usually entertaining scenes are the sections that shortly grow old or aren’t fully dazzling. It’s mainly enjoyable to witness the film’s funny reactions and outrageously crude senses of absurdity, which you’ll get a lot out of this original comedy.
