    Maria totally stole the film from Borat. She’s funny and sweet. It was really heartwarming watching people respond to her and try to take care of her. Jeanise Jones brought back a hint of my faith in humanity there.

    Borat is a satire that plays on the ignorance of Americans about this Central Asian republic, some critics scolded Cohen for showing rudeness in the depiction of the country.
    Sasha Cohen created a whole fictional country – a cruel, primitive and oppressive place, which he called “Kazakhstan”, but has nothing to do with real Kazakhstan, the most striking traits of Borat’s character are his rudeness, ignorance, racism and chauvinism. This is a pig, not a man: stupid, hostile, disgusting.
    The name of Borat’s neighbor Nursultan Tulyakbay is a combination of the name of President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev and the name of one of the prominent opposition figures of Kazakhstan Zharmakhan Tuyakbay.
    Since then, as it became known about the release of the second part of “Borat”, Kazakhstanis have launched the hashtag #CancelBorat on the Internet.

    If you speak Bulgarian you could fully experience her performance in the movie. She did so well with the jokes and improv lines in her native language. It was pure comedy gold.

    So is everyone rich in Bulgaria ? Do they they all have white privilege there as well ? Or is it a war torn poverty stricken waste land ?
