    LOL

    I remember you saying that he reminded you of an Albanian.

    Well, I was watching Icons and the character was originally an Albanian journalist, but over time evolved into a Khazakstanian.

    Funniest movie of the year. Even with the naked wrestling/fight scene.

    a writer for the LA times pondered if this was the funniest movie ever

    and come on, they had "The running of the Jews" shot in that village, and you're telling me that they had no clue it wasn't a documentary... give me a break

    But seeing as how this is the biggest boxoffice movie in the world, he's gonna make some mad money, he should hook them up with some running water at least, maybe even a Mc Donalds...

    The Original Sasha Cohen character was so anti-muslim that it wasn't about "someone from this backwards village". It's not safe to make fun of Muslims, especially in the US entertainment world.

    So they softened it, just like they soften all those Tom Clancy movies to feature "White Supremecists" and "Domestic Militia" groups instead of the Muslims that were originally in the book.

    I think that the US Borat actually isn't that funny ( I haven't seen the movie yet, but I saw a bit and a few skits ). Compared to the REAL anti-muslim comedy that only a crazy Israeli Jew can make - It's really watered down.
