Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (originally titled as Borat! Gift of Sexy Monkey to Vice Premier Mikhael Pence for Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan and later as Borat! Gift of Daughter to Mikhael Pence for Make Benefit Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan and finally as Borat! Delivery of Sexy Gift to Rudy Giuliani in Last-Ditch Attempt to Save Borat from Execution and Make Benefit Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan) is an American mockumentary directed by former child actor Jason Woliner as his feature film debut, produced by Sacha Baron Cohen, Anthony Hines & Monica Levinson and co-written by Peter Baynham, Baron Cohen, Jena Friedman, Hines, Lee Kern, Dan Mazer, Erica Rivinoja, Dan Swimer and Nina Pedrad. The film stars Sacha Baron Cohen, Maria Bakalova, Dani Popescu, Manuel Vieru, Miroslav Tolj, Alin Popa, Ion Gheorghe, Nicolae Gheorghe, Marcela Codrea, Luca Nelu and Nicoleta Ciobanu, with Tom Hanks, Mike Pence & Rudy Giuliani as themselves.
Secretly filmed during the COVID-19 pandemic and confirmed in September 2020, it was released on October 23, 2020, as an Amazon Prime Video exclusive and serves as the direct sequel to the titular character's 2006 film.
14 years later, Kazakh TV talking head Borat is once again dispatched to the United States to report on the greatest country in the world.
Why It Rocks
- Just like its predecessor, the film is never afraid to tackle the racism, anti-Semitism, homophobic, political and viral issues plaguing America, and it shows.
- Great chemistry between Sacha Baron Cohen (who played Borat Sagdiyev) and Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova (who played Borat's daughter Tutar "Sandra Jessica Parker" Sagdiyeva)
- Borat received lots of character development alongside Tutar in the movie's short playtime, going from a misogynistic, racist and anti-Semitic journalist to a caring and doting father figure to Tutar who's willing to learn new things and get rid of his old ways just for her.
- The "fish-out-of-water" plot using the mockumentary style of filming was implemented really well in this film thanks to Sacha Baron Cohen.
- Just like the previous film, it has lots of memorable and funny moments like Borat interrupting a Mike Pence rally while disguised as Donald Trump and carrying Tutar over his shoulder (this actually happened, no joke) and Tutar showing off her menstrual blood-covered panties while performing at a debutante ball with her father (who's wearing heavy makeup to disguise himself at the time).
- Heavily-improved cinematography thanks to Luke Geissbühler, even though most of the movie had to be shot incognito.
- Just like the previous film, a lot of stuff in the movie can get extremely offensive at times.
- Azamat from the previous film was killed off due to his actor refusing to come back after being lied to that this movie would not be Borat 2.
- Borat's voice sounds noticeably different than it did in the previous film.
- Due to Borat's newfound fame from the previous film, some of the pranks and jokes can end up becoming too predictable at times.
- Many of the jokes are rooted in late-2010s and early-2020s politics and pop culture, and might go over the heads of younger viewers in the future.
