“Sacha Baron Cohen is one of this country’s funniest performers, and the biggest pleasures of 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' (to give it its marvellously unwieldy full title) lie in simply watching him goof off, and in watching ‘real’ people’s incredulity as he does so. Borat Sagdiyev, roving reporter from Kazakhstan (here portrayed as a stone-age enclave of impoverished depravity), is let loose on the U.S. on a fact-finding mission that turns into a cross-country stalking exercise after he glimpses a ‘Baywatch’ rerun and falls for Pamela Anderson’s ample charms. En route to California, Borat alarms New Yorkers with a live chicken on the subway, derails a local TV breakfast show and, abetted by his portly producer Azamat (Ken Davitian), engages in a staggeringly public nude wrestling bout that leaves ‘Women in Love’ quailing in the shade.” — TimeOut (London)
