Borat
Sacha Baron Cohen ( "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby"), also the star of HBO's "Da Ali G Show," has taken his Kazakh journalist TV character Borat Sagdiyev and built an outrageous mockumentary around him. Leaving his native Kazakhstan, Borat travels to America to make a documentary.

As he crisscrosses the nation, Borat meets real people in real situations with hysterical consequences. He claims to be a roving reporter from Kasakhstan, a third-world nation where the women are third-class citizens, just behind animals and Jews. His backwards behavior generates strong reactions around him, exposing prejudices and hypocrisies in American culture. In some cases, As Borat interviews politicians and any uptight or overly polite person that comes within range of his camera crew, many interview subjects embrace his outrageous views on race and sex by agreeing with him, while others attempt to offer a patriotic lesson in Western values. Meanwhile Cohen is as offensive as possible to every race, creed, sex and persuasion. Luckly director Larry Charles (TV's Seinfeld" and "Curb Your Enthusiasm") knows exactly what he is doing and allows Cohen to do what he has already perfected in his TV series.

Cohen's innovative work has already earned him two BAFTA awards in England. Dictionaries added two words based on his characters' "inventive" use of the English language, and they say that even the Queen Mother has become a fan. You will undoubtedly become one too.
