  • Fantastic comedy! If you liked the other movies with Sacha Baron Cohen like “Borat” or “Bruno”, I’m sure you will love this one too! Maybe it’s not as funny as “Borat”, but Cohen is hilarious once again! Thumbs up for a great job of director and actors. Okay, maybe it’s politically incorrect but – at the end of the day – it is funny, uplifting and entertaining!
