Borat Sagdiyev is a popular Kazakh television personality who is tasked with making a documentary about the "Greatest Country in the World", the "US and A". Borat and his producer Azamat Bagatov (Ken Davitian) arrives in New York, where they start a line of interviews, but after seeing Pamela Anderson on TV and immediately falling in love with her, Borat convinces his producer that they should go to California. During the cross-country trip Borat meets and interviews a wide variety of Americans.
Most of the interviews in the movie are allegedly made without the participants interviewed knowing beforehand what the purpose was (they were required to sign long release forms agreeing not to take legal action against the creators of the movie).
This was a tough movie to watch for me, as I do not find this kind of comedy very appealing. There were some funny moments, but I am generally not a fan of hidden camera type humour and particularly not this type, where it is an attempt to shock and mortify people. Anybody can make people gasp by being crude enough, so I do not think the concept can carry a whole feature length movie.
