Paris Says Bonjour to Borat

10/9/2006 5:48 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Borat: Click to watchWhen a press conference starts with the words, "Good afternoon gentlemen and prostitutes. How much? I have dollars," it's sure to be a good time.

Sacha Baron Cohen, in full Borat character, held a press conference in Paris today to promote his new film "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan," where he took shots at Uzbekistan, President Bush and American women in general.

Having just toured America, the fictional TV reporter told the press, "We in Kazakhstan admire very much Premier Bush. He is very wise man but not only this, he is very strong," said Borat adding, "Although perhaps not as strong as his father, Barbara. Tough guy. Like John Waynes."


The character has been butting heads with Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev and causing criticism with his racist and sexist remarks -- more of which he made today.

"My best memories is the very nice peoples I meet but also some of the shocking things I see in America," says Borat, "For example, womens is allowed, in America, to drive a car. It is crazy. We say in my country to let a woman drive a car is like to let a monkey fly a plane. Very dangerous, yes?"

With another month until the film opens, let's hope for more press conferences to come.

Borat is spreading false facts of Kazakhstan. He is humiliating himself with his stupidity and is not funny. People know that Kazakhstan is not backward and racist and is a modern society, and they will see that Borat is just not funny and is a desperate comedian attacking a civilised society.
Borat's movie will bomb because people know there is no basis to his insults. DO NOT SEE HIS STUPID FILM.

Borat is simply one word, "GREAT". Its this countries left wing that does not have a clue. Maybe, Nancy Pelosi needs to shut her trap here and not worry about pointing fingers as she does so well. Borat is a fictional character, Hello. Please, I rather have my children watch him (ALI G) then the people who run this country and any other because they are more full of you know what then Cohen's antics. This world is real ugly because everyone is taught to get theirs or get your but are not taught to not step on some or all in the process. Borat, Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Borat is hilarious. If you think SBC is serious about any of his views or thoughts spouted out by Borat, you're insane. The guy is a comedian and Borat is a CHARACTER. He's great and I can't wait to see his movie on opening night! :)

I think he is freakin funny, with all of the crap that is going on in the world people need to have a good laugh at themselves. He is making fun of EVERYONE sure its narrowed down to a few groups but he is trying to point out the funny and ironic side of humanity. Get over yourselves!!!! Learn to laugh at yourself a little bit! I can't wait to see the movie, I crack up at the so called press conferences.

WTF? Hey, folks, always remember this little tidbit when attempting to think critically about a movie, it's characters and whether or not they have an effect on society- movie characters aren't real. Borat is costume deep, that's all. When the lime green thong-banana-hammock goes in the closet, Borat fails to exist.

And Roman, don't be so damned quick to blame the left. I'm as left as they come, and between you, me, and the rest of the folks here on the net, I think anyone who possibly takes this seriously quite probably has their own head inserted so far up their own butt they haven't seen daylight in weeks.
