There has been considerable buzz about the newly-released movie Borat, a film depicting a supposed news reporter from Kazakhstan touring the US. The trailer looked mildly entertaining, and although I am not a fan of stupid-funny movies, I admit that I really wanted to see what the fuss was about. As such, we went to the matinee on this day after Thanksgiving.

Big mistake.

It was horrible. I was looking at my watch begging for it to end after a mere half hour. Even Danny, who typically loves the silly-funny comedy genre, was rolling his eyes throughout the entire agonizing show. It was easily the worst movie either of us had seen in years.

And no, I really didn't need to see two hairy, naked men, one well over 300 pounds, wrestling on a bed with their private parts mashed against each other's faces. Really.

Don't believe the hype. This movie was NOT worth it. Stay home. Hopefully it will go away very soon.

In related news, two of the frat boys depicted in the movie are suing the production company for mental, emotional and physical distress. They claim that they lost good standing and reputation in their community, because their drunk arses are all over every theater screen in America, making unscripted and unprompted derogatory comments about women and minorities.

Cry me a river.

If they can do that, then perhaps I can sue for mental and emotional anguish over seeing a naked 300-pound man's scrotum pressed into another man's nose. It's worth a shot, right ?
