Going the extra mile

I have my doubts about whether Bruno will be any kind of match for Borat, but you can't fault Sacha Baron Cohen for not trying. And it's nice to see he can be funny as himself.

Of course it would have been quite the kicker if the Al Aqsa guy had said, "So, are you really with that Isla Fisher babe?"

We're thinking the same way. Borat is inherently charming while Bruno is not.. and how is he going to arrange for the babushkas to carry him to the premiere?

That... That is a good question. One that hadn't occurred to me. But yeah, some personae are better than others in terms of spending two hours with the character.
