Will’s review published on Letterboxd:
second Sacha Baron Cohen film in a week that was released in 2020 and debuted on streaming. bizarre
i think it was obvious going into this that it wasn’t going to be as good as the first, but to be honest it doesn’t matter. this one might have had me laughing more i don’t know?
i don’t want to talk much about this as it’s something you should just watch without knowing what SBC/Borat gets up too throughout the film. it’s a shame to see a lot of funny content in the advertising missing in the film (especially the scene of him at a driving range).
but i couldn’t help but love the film, SBC to me is Borat, having grown up with the original and being able to quote a lot of it. it’s just good fun, and as for this last scene everyone is talking about... in my opinion, it’s pretty bad for Rudi, i cant see this doing any good for him. this film has released at the perfect time and it’s such a fun, crude, vulgar and cringe watch. it reminded me more of his 2018 series ‘Who is America?’, dealing with famous politicians this time. but yes. again, if you like the first this is worth a watch and if you didn’t then stay the fuck away from it.
