Oh, for fuck's sake. Mr. Kingsley, what have you done now?
It doesn't look terrible, at least from this trailer. I'm a fan of his comedy style and this is right in line with it. I hope they don't try to turn it into a franchise.
Goes Mike Myers? More like Goes Adam Sandler.
He just needs to stay away from writing scripted films. Before Borat he did a god-awful Ali G movie. He needs to stick with half scripted shock humor.
He should of stuck to pretending to be a congresswoman from Minnesota. He was so good at that.
This doesn't look like he wrote it.

Not too bad, but not great either. He should stick to unscripted adlibbing with people that aren't in on the joke.
That said, I'm sure this'll effectively get him banned from at least a dozen more countries.
At this rate, he's going to end up having to live in Salman Rushdie's old nuclear bunker.
God, am I ever sick of film comedies that are propped up by lazy pop culture jokes. Apparently modern comedy screenwriting is the art of repeating the name of a few celebrities and internet memes for 90 minutes. Most of which will already be passe by the time the movie comes out.
I can watch plenty of comedies from before I was born that still hold up brilliantly, but I can't watch something from 2006 without it feeling dated.
Also, I liked Borat and Bruno, but Cohen has gone to the "HA HA LOOK AT THE FOREIGN GUY" well too often for me to care anymore.

He should have stuck with the Lord Monckton character, that was gold...
the starter pistol gag made me laugh at least
