[Borat : Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan]
I'm an airy fairy new age psychic Christian from Washington, DC married to a Jewish man from the Northeast. However, I do have Christian relatives from the midwest and South. My point is that it's alright for a black to make a joke about a white, but not vice versa. It's alright for a Jews to parody Christians, but not the reverse.
This movie was very selective in picking people from the South to show as ignorant and socially/politically incorrect. Why didn't he pick any NY or CA people to portray this way? We know there's an abudance of idiots in every region. This movie was narrow-minded, and manipulative in its depiction of Americans and Southerners, and relied heavily on disgusting hairy body parts for its humor. Frankly, I was bored and grossed out by the film.
It was also an obvious political statement by a liberal foreigner as we approach the elections. And guess what...I'm not a Republican. But I'm still offended when foreigners constantly malign Americans, yet there are still 20m+ immigrants flooding into our country.
Can we say "double standard" on all counts? I wish I could get a refund back from this movie.
