‘BORAT: SUBSEQUENT MOVIEFILM ‘ is the sequel to ‘Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan’ or which everyone knows as ‘Borat’, I didn’t even know the first ‘Borat’ had that long of a title, I just knew it simply as ‘Borat’. It’s been fourteen years since the first ‘Borat’. This is a sequel I didn’t know was coming but, it was one we all needed. Other than staring Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat himself, we get introduced to Maria Bakalova, who plays Borat’s daughter Sandra Jessica Parker Sagdiyev. Borat 2 starts out as explaining where Borat has been the past 14 years, after returning back to Kazakhstan, his country is so ashamed of him for putting them in bad light that they send him to the Gulag. Kazakhstan now wants to get in America’s good grace by sending Borat back to America to bring Mike Pence a gift. Not any gift though, Kazakhstan’s top celebrity monkey. Sandra Jessica Parker Sagdiyev sneaks into the crate the monkey is stored in on it’s way to America. She eats the monkey in order to survive, so now with no monkey Borat must offer Mike Pence his daughter instead.
I could argue the two most influential movies of my generation are ‘Napoleon Dynamite’, and ‘Borat’, both came out when I was in high school, and like both, kids were walking around doing the voices and quoting the movie. Still to this day both are still quoted and the Borat voice is still a thing. So when Borat 2 came out, I had to watch it, and I was not alone. Opening weekend over 1.6 million houses tuned in to watch Borat 2, in the words of Borat I would say that was a “great success”. Like the first one Borat is crude and has a lot of wtf moments, but that’s just Borat. This one gets more political and takes a lot of jabs at the republican party, and one thing I do have to say is it is dirty how they tried to trap Rudy Giuliani. You have to see the scene to know what I’m talking about, he was laying back tucking his shirt in. It’s clear as day nothing more. Overall this movie is great, it’s hilarious, and major props to Sacha Baron Cohen on being able to still trick people in 2020 especially after his sky rocket to fame after the first Borat. I give it an 8/10.
