Cohen brings satire of Americans to big screen

Sacha Baron Cohen, famous for his satirical style of comedy, is releasing a movie, Borat: Cultural Learning of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.

The basic premise: Cohen is Borat, a Kazakhi journalist sent to America to study its people and cultures.

No Americans were harmed in the filming of this movie--but many were embarrassed. An article on contactmusic.com states:


In other offending scenes Cohen - himself Jewish - spits out food from Jewish owners of a bed-and-breakfast fearing poison, while in another he tells black presidential candidate ALAN KEYES he has a "chocolate face."
