Borat is laugh-for-84-minutes funny. Borat is a fictional TV reporter, from Kazakhstan, who comes the US and A to report on American culture. All of the people he meets believe he is the character. He starts out seeming innocent and naive, and then becomes totally inappropriate. This style is the brilliance of the comedy of Sasha Baron Cohen. Racist, sexist, anti-Semitic, some stuff just plain gross. We laugh when we know we shouldn't. Directed by Larry Charles (Curb your Enthusiasm), this film is well made, and a very creative comedy!
