Borat

Borat (2006)

Factual error: Borat and Azmat are depicted having entered Atlanta and getting off at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. which runs East and West. Atlanta does not have a road named "Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd." The MLK in Atlanta is "Martin Luther King Junior Drive"

Trivia: When Borat talks in "Kazakh," he is actually speaking Hebrew (with some Polish words thrown in) - ironic, considering the character's blatant anti-semitism in the film.

Trivia: The participants of this 'mockumentary' (none of whom were in on the joke) were all made to sign a release form so that the film makers could use the footage. In spite of this, several of those interviewed have since made unsuccessful attempts to sue the distribution company for fraud and defamation. Those that took action included the etiquette coach, plus two of the students with whom Borat hitchhikes with.

Question: What is the crazy church or religion that Borat goes to where people are running around the hall and talking in a strange language? What language are they talking in and why do they look so agressive? What's with all the running around with hands in the air?

Chosen answer: This was the Mississippi United Pentecostal Church annual camp meeting of 2006. "The power of Jesus" compels many people to sing, dance, etc...as far as the weird language, it's known as "speaking in tongues" and is generally incoherent to the casual observer. The hands in the air is a symbol of someone literally "lifting" themselves and their hearts to Jesus in worship and prayer. It's all simply an expression of their faith and religious beliefs, nothing more.

Question: Do Borat and Azamat talk in a real other language, or are the actors just saying gibberish for the movie?

Chosen answer: According to an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen, it's actually Hebrew disguised by a very heavy fake Eastern European accent.

Question: There is a scene where Borat is queueing up to see Pamela Anderson, he gets to her, asks her to marry him and when she refuses he puts a large sack over her head to try and abduct her. Now I know Borat is a spoof character, and everyone he meets believes he is real, however that scene was quite dramatic and security would have been tight around her. That action could have got Sacha Baron Cohen in some serious trouble, or even worse, shot by one of her security guards. Was Pamela in the know on this scene, or was it genuinely as we see it?

pierpp

Chosen answer: Pamela has been asked about this and has stated in interviews that she and Sacha had talked at length about what they were going to do. It was all planned out and rehearsed, unlike the majority of the rest of the movie.
