At the time of seeing this movie, I was 14 and watched it purely to be in on the jokes between my friends about the movie. Let me tell you - It wasn't worth it. Although I love SNL and Dane Cook, there is just some "Stupid" comedy that I can't stand (ie: Nacho Libre) I must say that I found this movie more uncomfortable than funny. All I can say is that 1/2 of people are gonna love it, and 1/2 are gonna hate it. As a teen, you just have to know yourself well enough to juge which 1/2 you are in and if you are even mature enough for it.
Attention Parents: I saw this movie and it was hilarious. Not for kids 10 and under, But for kids 11+ who are just learning about some of the themes in the movie. Sure, it comtains moderate sex, But Kids at age 11 will be able to laugh and understand Borat's humor.
I thought that Borat what HILARIOUS! Sometimes though, it was just too much! It went overboard quite a bit. When you watch Borat, you know some things are grossly exagerated. Some things in this movie are shocking, like the Americans reactions to Borat but unfortunately that is not exagerated at all... People are really like that! Just for that alone, i think Borat is a good thing to watch because it shows us who much our society can be so closed to other cultures.
