Rude, crude and socially unacceptable, which seems to be Sacha Baron Cohen's intention with his movie, "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan"- "Borat" for short.
A native of Kazakhstan, Borat (Cohen) is a friendly anti semitic who travels to America. Along with his sidekick Azamat(Ken Davitian), Borat shoots a documentary about the American Culture. Borat manages to offend everybody that he meets as he crosses the American landscape. Borat eventually decides that there is no place like home. The End.
Feminists, Cowboys, Gays and College frat boys become unwitting targets of Borat's cultural bumbling.I guess I should mention that Borat and Azamat wrestle each other in the nude and chase each other in a swanky hotel.
John Cleese once starred in a faux documentary titled "How to Irritate People." Cleese described that the secret of irritation is to not make it intentional. Cohen does that same thing with his Borat character and gets away with critical murder.
