We have been patiently waiting for 14 years to watch our all-time favorite Kazakh. Finally, he is back in Borat Subsequent Movie film— the newest addition on Amazon Prime Movies. The timing couldn’t be more perfect. Although, Amazon Prime Movie underwent a lot of hard work for this feat.

Sacha Baron Cohen is just released from jail after being arrested for bringing shame to his country. He returns as a namesake person, a titular character. His behavior is quite similar to anyone who has just been freed from prison. Maria Bakalova does a good job playing his 15-year-old daughter. She is all Borat has. However, there’s a task in hand. Kazakhstan’s leader wants to make inroad with Trump and Pence. Borat must return to America to help him. Good idea?

The movie is full of exceptional comedy and antics. Satirical Comedy is still a good genre especially with films like this.  Parental Alert, there are nudity, gore, and profane scenes.
