    Does anyone here like this Borat?

    Does anyone here like this Borat crap?

    I'd never even heard of him until he did the intro to Saturday Night Live the week his movie opened. I didn't even find the skit funny. I wondered what the whole thing was about, and then I started seeing commericals for the movie...

    Now, apparently tons of people are suing the movie company for being lied to during the filming....

    I saw the movie. The most politically incorrect movie ever. It was funny.

    I haven't even seen ads for it. But one of my co-workers saw it and he just couldn't stop telling us all about it. I rarely ever go to the movies (last time I went I saw the first Spiderman). I may rent it when it comes out, but probably not.

    I saw it. I thought it was pretty funny, though very very crude. It is especially funny if you are conversant with prejudice against Jews. My wife is Jewish, and we found the scenes portraying anti-Semitic ignorance absolutely hysterical.

    I think he purposly played upon the anti-Semitic ignorance.

    Definitely. His name is Cohen, so I don't think there's any question about his heritage! The fact that he did things like "The Running of the Jew 2004" is basically a slap at Jew-envying Muslims, which is excellent.

    I guess extended parody is this guy's thing. I never saw "DA Ali G Show" on HBO, but it had a following. Most people say the movie is funny. I'll see it in DVD.

    Can't understand that humor unless you've seen him.
