Funny…….but not rolling on the floor with laughter funny; so a bit disappointed.
Some of the humor is extremely crude and unfortunately, the best jokes have been already shown in trailers. Also, I was hoping it would be even more irreverent – some of the Borat appearances on The Ali G Show (as well as the other characters, Ali G and Bruno) were by far edgier and un-PC (this could have something to do with rating issues in the US – apparently there are many deleted scenes). Perhaps a case of too much expectations. Still, scenes like the ‘chick-magnet’ at the car-dealership and the National Anthem of Kazakstan are probably the price of admission (though you could probably catch them on Youtube as well).
Oh – about the bits on ‘exposing’ the homophobia, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and chauvinism of middle-America – those were fairly predictable. Don’t tell me anyone is expecting a gay-pride parade at a Rodeo ? And the sexist comments by the drunk frat-boys of University of South Carolina – they are fairly lame compared to stuff I have heard back in college (in India) being discussed by guys in a sober state. Mind you, I am not condoning the actions of any of these people.
