Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (⭐⭐)

Director: Jason Woliner. Cast: Sacha Baron Cohen, Maria Bakalova,

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying that the first Borat however offensive, crass and tasteless was also unique. An inventive and fearless “social experiment” that somehow said more about racism, sexism and bigotry than many mainstream movies out there. 14 years have now passed since that first film and the world has not only changed quite a bit, but the bar has been raised and raised and it’s not as easy to shock us as it used to be. We are much more used “stunts” like these. In fact Sacha Baron Cohen himself has already done quite a few of those in his recent TV series “Who is America?” and this latest “Borat” movie feels very much like an extended episode of that containing a bunch of more or less successful sketches.Borat 2 was clearly rushed to production so that it could be release just in time for the forthcoming US election. Some of that rush definitely shows. Not all the jokes work, not all of them hit the mark. And while of course there are some funny ideas here and there and the “Covid surprise ending” is quite inspired, it’s all much to diluted to be really punchy as it should be. I was desperate for a strong comedy tonight… sadly this, just about floats above the average.
