Borat: The Film

Subtitled Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, the film is a low-budget mockumentary comedy, but still it is making a lots of money at box office. Most of the actors in the film are not paid, but rather real people who Borat met during his journey. The distributor of the film is 20th Century Fox and the director is Larry Charles. It premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival and was released across Europe and North America on November 3, 2006. The film follows Borat in his travels across the United States as he commits cultural solecisms and exposes a few American ones. Over the course of the film, Borat falls in love with Pamela Anderson after watching a re-run of Baywatch and vows to make her his wife.

The film opened at number one in the U.S., taking in $26.4 million on a limited release of 837 screens during its first weekend, beating out Fahrenheit 9/11 as the biggest opening weekend for a film released in under 1,000 theaters. Borat celebrated the release of the film with a host of promotional 'in-character' interviews, like this one with stv.tv. However, on November 9, 2006 the Russian Federal Agency for Culture and Cinematography banned the movie, citing "it could offend viewers in relation to certain ethnic groups and religions." The film expanded its release on the second weekend to 2,566 screens, where it took in an additional $29 million.
