We signed up to a video store membership (first time for me in years, but there’s no Netflix here) and I finally saw Borat. I’m a fan of Sacha Baron Cohen and was familiar with his Borat character from his Ali G show and expected the film to be a series of similar gags. As I’d expected, I’d seen all the funny parts in the various promotions for the film I saw as Borat did the rounds on TV but was pleasantly surprised to see that this film had a stronger plot than his previous Ali G film and that it worked a lot better.

I didn’t find myself laughing too much, since I’d seen it all before but it was fun and I hope the film’s popularity doesn’t ruin the Borat character for future work.
