borat jumped the shark?

i went to see borat (the movie), because i think his interviews in the US and A (from the ali g series) are hilarious. i was sure to enjoy 83 minutes of pure fun, BUT:

  • although the german trailer was just english with german subtitles, they dubbed the whole movie. that’s terrible if you know the original borat.
  • the movie wasn’t just lots of interviews with a little bit of story behind it, it was the other way round.
  • it was just too extreme alltogether; for an inveterate fan of south-park and ali g, i didn’t think i would ever have to say that…

most interviews were, in fact, quite funny. there were several good ones (interviews and jokes) for a series – but imho it wasn’t enough for a whole movie…
