Borat is lewd and crude but it is also very funny. Some of the scenes in the picture had me laughing hysterically whilst others had me scratching my head.
I laughed at how Borat could make some really offensive remarks about all sorts of issues and the unsuspecting Americans that he met just agreed and expanded on those views. This was especially when he was at the rodeo, the gun shop and the bus with the frat-boys.

Also funny is the naked wrestling/fight scene between Borat and Azimat which really has to be seen to be believed.

First I must say that I love motor racing but hate NASCAR. I am more of a Formula 1 fan. I find NASCAR to be too American for me to like. It doesn’t help that NASCAR only turn one way, don’t brake or change gears.

The film is OK if you like Will Farrell. It’s a typical Farrell film and has a few good chuckles but nothing too hilarious. It’s really silly but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
