Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm ★★★

It's really impossible for this to measure up to the first for alot of reasons. Obviously, Borat is famous, which it tries to play off in mildly amusing ways. Maybe more importantly, Borat's act is funniest when unmasking how dumb and stupid America is, but we don't really need that to be unmasked now, it's fairly obvious.

It feels too artificial for too much of the movie, but Maria Bakalova actually carries most of it, and inverting Borat's schtick as a woman is a pretty rich concept when she's allowed free reign. Not nearly as funny as the first by a wide margin, but it's more than worth it just to own a decrepit sicko like Giuliani.
