CRITIQUE & REVIEW: “Borat...," A Date Movie? NOT!

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is a very funny and offensive movie that is only for the people who will "get it." Borat's creator Sacha Baron Cohen is a comic genius. I only hope that the wrestling shown really was fake like the professional varity. It's a "guy movie" that the ladies will most likely not appriciate. Not a date movie.

Look: 3
Story: 5
Acting: 8
Goal: 9
Intangibles: 7
Overall: 7

The above scores are based on a 10-point scale.

  • Look has to do with the visual artistry of the film.
  • Story rates the how compelling the film’s plot is.
  • Acting rates the overall performances of the actors.
  • Goal measures the success of the film at accomplishing its goal… does a comedy make you laugh, does a thriller cause goose bumps.
  • Intangibles score any special circumstances or accomplishments the movie deserves to be recognized for.
  • Overall rating is not an average of the other categories, just this reviewer’s impression of the entire work and how I would rate the film to a friend.
