New Borat sucks.  A real disappointment.   All political.   Its not a coincidence when Amazon released this.

They made the trailer look so funny, yet thats the only funny parts.

+1. Barely a laugh through the whole film. There was no way they could have matched the first one, especially with his character being so well known. They tried to mix in some "Who is America" type scenes which just does not go with the Borat brand. Many of the characters were clearly in on it. The Giuliani scene is hard to watch, very damaging (even viewed in the best light).
If you don't care why would you comment?

I think you guys are forgetting how political the first one was - or maybe you were just a lot less emotionally invested in politics back then. Personally I think Borat 2 wasn't as good, simply because the bits were either retreads of stuff from the first one (or other SBC content like Who is America) or they were just duds. Who is America also had a lot of duds - though I think the best few scenes from the series were among SBC best work.

there is political, and then there is releasing a week before elections, making fun of one side, and ending the movie with the word vote.

What does that have to do with how funny the actual content is? Like I said, you're just more invested in politics. It's not changing how political or how funny the content is.

this was my full review. A. as a SBC fan I'm disappointed in the comedy level, and B. I'm disgusted by the politics involved

If you like looking through boxes of DVDs (and Blu-rays), Dollar Tree is there for you.
Expect a lot of low-budget genre films (horror, sci-fi, action), but probably not all of it.

Did you know that some movies on YouTube are free with ads? (Of course, a company's choice
of this option is not exactly, or rather is exactly not, a show of great confidence in their product.)

Edit: There's actually a playlist of them - here.
