The Ali G. Movie, In Da House is the funniest movie I have seen in like, forever. Sacha Baron Cohen is simply brilliant. You absolutely should watch this very watchable retread of the old Mr. Smith Goes To Washington vibe. It worked for Eddie Murphy, it worked for Chris Rock, and it works for Ali G.
Yes, it's because he's black.

Ali G is completely and totally the MAN. His HBO show is the funniest thing on the airwaves.

Borat rules!!!
I have never seen the movie or the show, I have heard of Ali - Esspecially in the news recently.

I'll have to check it out.

I caught MR. and MRS. Smith last night at the cheap theater... very entertaining.
I had no idea about the Ali G, then I caught a bit of him on one of the 36 channels of HBO that are now beamed into my home, and I nearly wet me knickers.

He is simply one of the most purely developed characters ever. Cohen's performance rivals anything I've seen, he is so completely in the vibe of that character that it's unbelievable. He totally gives himself up to the depths of stupidity, which isn't as easy as it looks. I just shake me head when I watch 'im, and think how easy it must be to shoot that show. Just turn the camera on and let Ali G be Ali G.
The two funniest moments on Da Ali G show that I can remember are when he was in his Borat character at a gun show here in Atlanta making insinuations to this show attendee about being gay and the redneck tells him if he says anything more about "...laying down with other men", he's going to beat the shit out of him. I don't get rednecks, but the gay thing is a big fear in them. Hysterical conversation though.

The other was Borat at some snobby edicate school in NYC where he was being taught the finer points of dining by these extreme effeminate guys. He offered to show these guys a picture of his wife back home in Kazastan and produced a picture of a women completely naked bend over a pummel horse. He did this while completely in character, with a total straight face while these two guys tried to play it cool. Feakin' tears streaming down my face...

Ali getting walked out on by dickhead Andy Rooney was funny too.
Watching Andy Rooney shake with anger was priceless.

Having Newt Gingrich spell his name was amazing as well.
