I saw Borat on Saturday.
For all everyone is talking about it, it’s okay as far as the movie goes. Though after hearing people say it’s the funniest thing ever I couldn’t help but think it’s not that that funny.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s funny. It’s more a case of overhype.
The best Borat related thing i encountered Saturday was an article by the Toronto Star’s film critic, Peter Howell who linked what he calls the “Borat phenomenum” with the recent racist rant of Michael Richards, the guy who played Kramer in Seinfeld. You can read it here.
