SPOILER ALERT?—?When most people first heard about the return of Borat on U.S. territory, there was a mix of excitement and worry, considering that new issues have cropped up in every corner of society. There’s social unrest due to racial injustice, the heat of a very tightly fought 2020 election, and a spreading pandemic that has already claimed the lives of nearly 300,000 Americans, with a death toll that is still rising. The big question for Borat fans as he delivers his ‘subsequent moviefilm’ via Amazon is: are we really ready to have a big laugh despite all this darkness?

Back in 2006, eccentric journalist Borat Sagdiyev (Cohen) left his native Kazakhstan to introduce the uglier and more comical side of America on an assignment that led him to drink with frat boys, offend uber-feminists, wreck a conservative etiquette group’s dinner party, and kidnap Pamela Anderson in broad daylight (with all her fans happy to help her in any way), among other hilarious feats.

This time around, Borat returns to the land of the free with his 15-year old daughter Tutar (Maria Bakalova) who he will be offering as a gift to current Vice President Mike Pence in exchange for his life. Previously, Borat had failed to deliver Kazakhstan’s Minister of Culture Johnnie the Monkey (a real monkey, by the way, which was eaten by Tutar after hiding inside a shipping crate bound for America) to President Donald Trump in the hopes of redeeming the U.S.A. The craziness goes off the charts from there as the father-daughter duo find themselves in a debutante’s ball (with Tutar in a flowing white gown complete with menstrual blood stains and all), interrupt a Mike Spence speech (with Borat disguising himself as Trump and carrying Tutar on her shoulders as a present for Pence), and meet a host of high profile characters (some of whom were not happy at all after filming).

For the ‘subsequent moviefilm’, Borat had to put on multiple disguises as people already know how he looks and behaves since the first film became a worldwide hit. Here, we see him dressing up for the debutante’s ball, as Trump, and a stereotypical Jew, among many other disguises. However, there’s no doubt that the most interesting disguise of all came from Tutar who posed as a reporter out to seduce Trump lawyer and former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Prior to the film’s release, Giuliani was subjected to a hailstorm of controversy as producers released an excerpt of the film with the political figure’s hands down in his pants while lying in bed and in Tutar’s presence?—?all during the heated election campaign of 2020. Of course, the embattled Giuliani denied the allegations of impropriety and said that Cohen and the producers had set him up, and that was that.

What surprised true blue Borat fans in this second installment, however, was the film’s rather poignant take on the father-daughter ruse. Audiences saw bits of truth in how Tutar’s confusion over her relationship with her father, or how different she is from any other girl her age, seems to draw out heartfelt conversations with her babysitter Jeanise Jones. Unfortunately, Jones did not take it so well upon learning that everything that had transpired between her and Bakalova was a mere prank. Still, Cohen was able to introduce us to Borat’s more affectionate side in the sequel, somehow teaching us a thing or two about fatherhood?—?whether in normal circumstances or otherwise.

All the funny moments aside, Borat Subsequent Film succeeds in delivering a new brand of comedy that many of us really need today. It offers huge slices of both truth and genuine emotions, while helping us learn how to make fun of ourselves, which quite frankly, can be “very nice”!
