Did Borat actually crash Mike Pence's rally?
AMAZINGLY, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm star Sacha Baron Cohen was able to crash a Mike Pence rally.
He admitted the brash maneuver was difficult.
What is the Borat sequel about?
Borat Subsequent Moviefilm once again follows the exploits of "journalist" Borat Sagdiyev, a character originated by Baron Cohen.
This time Borat journeys to the US and interacts with ordinary Americans – and some politicians.
The movie features a cringe-worthy scene with former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani, an advisor to President Donald Trump.
The Borat sequel debuted on Amazon earlier this month. It also stars Maria Bakalova as Borat's 15-year-old daughter.
The original mockumentary Borat premiered to much acclaim in 2006.
Did Borat crash Pence's rally?
Borat actually did crash a Mike Pence speech at a Conservative Political Action Conference – but the versatile actor was in disguise.
He was trying to pass himself off as Trump.
“Obviously, I’m wearing a fat suit,” Baron Cohen told The New York Times.
“How do I get in and how do I get out?”
He told the newspaper that security was there to “check everyone’s bodies going through."
What has been the reaction to Borat Subsequent Moviefilm?
Subsequent Moviefilm has largely seen a positive reception from critics.
However, some have noted that the film fails to live up the original, with The New York Times claiming there is "nothing in this movie film that matches the elegant social experiment of the first."
Others have been more positive, with Empire Magazine writing it is the "comedy we both need and deserve right now".
Some have slammed the controversial film, including President Trump who labelled Sacha Baron Cohen a "creep."
And his personal attorney, who is targeted in the film, called the film “a hit job" in an interview with WABC on Wednesday October 21.
"Bear in mind, I spent five hours in makeup that morning with the prosthetic team changing my face into Trump’s face," Baron Cohen told The Times.
"This fat suit is huge. It’s a 56-inch fat suit to turn my waist into Trump’s because we had estimated that was the most realistic.
“Then I ended up hiding in the bathroom, listening to conservative men go to the toilet for five hours until I broke into the room.
We were surrounded by Secret Service and police and internal security.”
How much of the Subsequent Moviefilm is fake?
Some of the film’s scenes were staged or partially staged, and certain actors were aware they were participating in a movie.
Deadline reports that the premise of one scene was explained in advance to Holocaust survivor Judith Dim Evans, ahead of an interview in which Borat is highly anti-Semitic.
It is claimed that there is footage of Evans and a friend who accompanies her in the scene being told that Baron Cohen is Jewish and “playing an ignorant character as a means of Holocaust education."
The movie is also dedicated to Evans who died shortly after its release – though her family have since threatened a lawsuit claiming she was not aware it was satirical.
In one outrageous scene where Borat and daughter Tutar perform a “fertility dance” at a Debutante Ball, members of the public in Macon, Georgia, were reportedly paid to attend the event.
Will Davis, the publisher of the Monroe County Reporter, wrote that the “movie company sent us a nice email”about the event, and offering them $100 to attend.
But they had no idea that Tutar would later flash her private parts as part of the dance routine, and Davis said the crowd was left “with mouths agape wondering what had just happened," Distractify reports.
