"The young woman is flirtatious with him and invites him to the bedroom, which is rigged with hidden cameras. Giuliani then asks for her phone number and address. He lies back on the bed to tuck in his shirt after she helps remove his recording equipment, and he has his hands in his pants when Baron Cohen rushes in wearing an outlandish outfit." (, 2020).

Borat Subsequent Moviefilme will make you laugh, but especially cringe. What can you say to defend yourself when you go into a hotel bedroom, after an interview with a women journalist fifty years your junior, and ask her for an address and phone number? I call that creep city, Mr. Giuliani. Creep city.

But I digress... If you liked the original Borat, you'll most likely enjoy this sequel which continues its blend of activism and entertainment. Along with a stronger story through line than its predecessor, you can expect solid laughs and a strong performance by Cohen. What you might not expect is the phenomenal performance by newcomer Maria Bakalova. In no small feat, she stands equal to Cohen in every way, staying in character and taking every comedic opportunity to its maximum.

If I had to take a guess, I think we might have a Borat trilogy coming our way because of just how good Maria is (with the already excellent Cohen). Wawa wee wa, very nice!
