Off-Topic Tuesday: Jagshemash!

So we’re playing Ball State on Saturday. Let’s talk about something else:

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of Borat. In the news nearly every day for the last month, including "denunciations by officials in Kazakhstan and an organization of German gypsies," Sacha Baron Cohen’s brainchild has his own movie coming out on Friday. Go see it. I have been anxiously awaiting this movie since I heard about it about a year ago, and I’m even more excited now that my girlfriend lived in Kazakhstan for four months (no, really!). The fact that "The middle of the country is not in on the Borat joke yet," and Fox is only opening the movie on about 800 screens makes me sad, but is not surprising. Thanks, average American! Because of you, we get sweet sitcoms with John Lithgow and 872 CSI knock-offs!

Just go see the movie.

I got a chance to see this at a screening in Novi last week, it was absolutely hysterical. I went with three people who knew and loved Borat, and one who'd never heard of him, and she laughed as hard or harder than any of the rest of us.

I give it 4 Bo Schembechlers and a Fielding H. Yost (out of a possible 5 Bo Schembechlers)

mp - Good to hear. Can't wait for Friday. And I'm already looking forward to the DVD, because you know there will be some great extras and outtakes.
