    You won't know what outrageous fun is until you see Borat. High-five! show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    It's screamingly, hysterically, laugh-through-the-next-joke, laugh-for-the-next-week funny. It's so inventive…This is a film by an original and significant comic intelligence. show more

    Borat is most gloriously funny moving picture for to make people see their stupidness. show more

    Not since the halcyon days of Archie Bunker and "All in the Family" has so sharp a wit punctured so many balloons. show more

    Though Borat has been likened to "Jackass," there's a huge difference. The "Jackass" movies are about extreme stunts. Borat is about interaction and gullibility, and its success is unique to both Cohen and to this one-time-only movie. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The weapon wielded by Cohen and Charles is crudeness. People today, especially those in public life, can disguise prejudice in coded language and soft tones. Bigotry is ever so polite now. So the filmmakers mean to drag the beast out into the sunlight of brilliant satire and let everyone see the rotting, stinking, foul thing for what it is. When you laugh at something that is bad, it loses much of its power. show more

    Very nice. I like Borat very much. I think it is, as everybody has been saying, the funniest movie in years. show more

    Borat is a rarity: a comedy whose middle name is danger, or as the Kazakhs say, kauwip-kater. show more

    I can't wait to see Borat, which has twice as many laughs as all of this year's other movie comedies combined, for a fourth time. show more

    You are all the retards that make this movie hilarious to watch. You are the people in the modern pop-culture that Borat nails right in the rear-end. Borat makes all of you yuppy, racist, unknowing idiots look like the scum that you are. The religion scene showed just how ****** up the United States is. The religious scene represented the al-qaeda of America. Perfect. 5/5 stars. If you underate this movie you a) have no taste of good comedy b) are one of the people represented by this movie (the interviews etc) or c) just can't take in the facts of Borat. Read critic reviews please. They may alter your sense for this fiml.
