Borat was the #1 movie this weekend! With a budget of $18 million, and only being shown in 837 theaters, you can declare Borat’s $26.4 million weekend take a huge success. The film was set to be released in more cinemas, but in the last minute, some genius at Fox decided to cut it down to 837 theaters. So, you can bet that someone is going to get fired. Now that Fox has seen how much money the film made (and could have made!), the studio is planning to expand Borat to 2,500 theaters this Friday. Ya, a smart move.
Borat was, in all honestly, the funniest movie I have ever seen. There were dozens of scenes in this movie that had my crying. And I was surprised to see that the funniest moments were not in the trailer. Go see the movie, you won’t regret it. 9/10.
