    Very nice. I like Borat very much. I think it is, as everybody has been saying, the funniest movie in years.

    The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt

    The weapon wielded by Cohen and Charles is crudeness. People today, especially those in public life, can disguise prejudice in coded language and soft tones. Bigotry is ever so polite now. So the filmmakers mean to drag the beast out into the sunlight of brilliant satire and let everyone see the rotting, stinking, foul thing for what it is. When you laugh at something that is bad, it loses much of its power.

    Borat is most gloriously funny moving picture for to make people see their stupidness.

    Not since the halcyon days of Archie Bunker and "All in the Family" has so sharp a wit punctured so many balloons.

    When Baron Cohen works without a net, he flies.
