    • Excerpt: A Rabelaisian excursion into the absurd.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: …while Mikael Pence is never reached, plenty of CPAC attendees barely glance at Cohen beneath his full KKK regalia and Rudy Giuliani, who thought he’d escaped being made a mockery of, is now being investigated for his (really disgusting) behavior…
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: Not as impactful as the first, but still incredibly funny. Maria Bakalova steals the show, delivering a brilliant and committed performance that led to some of the funniest moments.
  • James Jay Edwards @ The Big Smoke America
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: A lot has changed since the first movie. More of the same isn’t enough.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: A work of breathtaking audacity. This is as perilous as comedy gets, and it’s very, very funny, often shockingly so. Sacha Baron Cohen’s scathing cultural strikes land like extinction-level asteroids.
  • [New] | Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Rather than checking social media, “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm” is a cuttingly funny and not-so-fond snapshot of our troubling political climate.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Student Edge
    • Excerpt: Bad news: there’s a pandemic on. Good news: Borat’s back. It’s the trade no one would make, but it’s the one we’re living with.

    • Excerpt: Sacha Baron Cohen brings Borat back from the grave to confront 2020 America in ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’. The result is decidedly less iconic (and relies too heavily on scripted rather than unscripted material) but succeeds in delivering gut-busting laughs and Cohen’s brand of shock and awe comedy, while also moving the dial on what Cohen’s particular style of shockumentary is able to offer. Newcomer Maria Bakalova is a treasure.
  • [New] | Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Not as sharp and fresh as the original, but ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’ is still sharp and very enjoyable nonetheless.

    • Excerpt: Doubling down on the original Borat, a mysterious co-star makes this a must see for Cohen lovers.
