Bravo Borat!!

Borat Sagdiyev is a fictional Kazakh journalist invented and portrayed by the British comedian provocateur Sacha Baron Cohen for Da Ali G Show, an unstaged and unscripted show in which Borat interviews people who believe that he is a real Kazakhstani television journalist. Sacha Baron Cohen first presented the Borat concept to Channel 4 in 1994 and within a few years Borat was a popular success. He is the star of the film Borat!: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

Crudely funny and raucously satiric, "Borat" was a surprise winner at the box office with a $26.5 million opening weekend, even though it played in only 837 theaters, fewer than one-fourth the number of cinemas for "The Santa Clause 3" and "Flushed Away."

Check out the trailer if you haven't watched it yet ; )

He's pretty funny but the jokes get a little too old... probably because I've already watched it before back in my university days.
