I don’t know if I have ever gone to a movie and almost had an asthma attack from laughing. Tonight I went to Borat and almost needed my inhaler. Consider yourself warned, take oxygen, take an inhaler, expect to laugh your asses off. (For people who have seen the movie, it was the wrestling scene. Even if you don’t have asthma, chances are you’ll need oxygen.)
I agree with most of what has been written about Borat. It is the Americans who look bad, not the Khazakstanis. He does a remarkable job staying in character and never, ever breaking. Seriously, have you ever seen a cuter rooster? And while he’s speaking Hebrew throughout, he didn’t say one word I recognized.
UPDATE: And the preview for Mel Gibson’s new movie? Was that on purpose? A joke? Or an accident?
