Borat may end up being one of the most overrated, overhyped, overeverything film of recent times. The film is a mediocre comedy at best and not because it is offensive, which it is only very mildly, but because its jokes are old and merely amplified versions of what would generally get covered in the first hour of any half-decent stand-up show in New York . Critics are finding deep social commentary which of course isn't there. Critics ar calling it a 'bold' film. What is bold is, not Cohen because he is merely irritating, but Fox for agreeing to launch a film given its (Fox's) overt conservative agenda in the country.

It is when you see stuff like this that you realize how much better Sienfield is in almost all respects.
