Borat 2

Postby Blue Jackets » Wed Sep 09, 2020 6:30 am

'Borat 2' Has Already Been Shot and Screened by Sacha Baron Cohen
According to multiple sources, the sequel finds Borat thinking he’s a big movie star after the success of the original 2006 film made him famous, so he’s trying to hide from the public by pretending to be someone else, and starts meeting/interviewing people incognito. One source described the film as “Cohen playing Borat playing Cohen.”

Lol, this is more or less what I was thinking reading the synopsis.

I was hoping they were going to do something interesting or funny with the title, guess not. Any of us could have guessed this

According to the Prime Video Twitter account, the title has changed also. It's now "The Borat Subsequent Moviefilm: Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan". Oct. 23rd confirmed again.

I saw a harmless conspiracy on Reddit that Borat 2 is actually a failed season 2 of Who Is America. In that show Cohen plays other characters to conduct interviews. In Borat 2, Borat is playing other characters to conduct interviews. Their theory is that there will just be a loose Borat plot between the interviews.

Interesting thought, I could see that. I enjoyed Who Is America so I would still watch even if that's the case.

After watching the trailer, I don't believe this is the case.

Agreed. It was the same Reddit user who had the theory that Hannibal Burris wasn't actually in the movie Tag. He was added in after the fact. That conspiracy is pretty compelling though.

We watched this over the weekend. We laughed a lot, so worth a watch. I would like to know who is "in on it" and who isn't as the movie goes along.

I thought about this during the whole movie. A behind the scenes or making of special would be more interesting to me than the film itself. Did Borat really spend 3-5 days living in a hunting shed with 2 conspiracy theorists? How did they not know who Borat was? How did Borat explain the film crew? So many questions!

I also think they probably go through a few people until the find ones good enough for the movie. For example, maybe they tried 4 babysitters until they found one who didn't see through the costumes or was entertaining enough to film.

As for the movie itself. Borat 2 hits in a different way than Borat 1. The first Borat (which I haven't seen since theaters and when I was like 17) was a straight comedy to me. It was funny watching people be fooled by Borat. Borat 2 though....it was scary at times to see how dumb and dangerous some people are. How does an obvious creep become a plastic surgeon? And that abortion scene, omg. People really are like that.

According to what I can find online, yes. He really stayed there 5 days in character. Long enough to order fleshlights and have them delivered.

Yeah, the conspiracy theorists that he stayed with and the babysitter are the biggest question marks. It seems to me they would almost HAVE to be in on it at some point. Reading the article BJ posted, it sounds like they must let them know that they're shooting a movie but obviously they don't give all the details on how it's a spoof or whatever.

‘Moral compass’ babysitter in ‘Borat’ movie feels ‘betrayed’
The babysitter hailed as the “moral compass” of the new “Borat” movie says she feels “betrayed” after she was led to believe she was participating in a real documentary about a teen being groomed to marry a rich man — and prayed for her until the trailer came out.

Jeanise Jones, 62, said the filmmakers never came clean to her about the true premise after she was recruited through a church in Oklahoma City to be featured in the Sacha Baron Cohen satire.
