This weekend, I was fooled into watching Borat. This movie was incredibly offensive to women. One scene from the movie in particular stands out in my memory where Borat is hitchhiking with some college students. The college students repeatedly make remarks about never letting a woman be in charge of you, women are stupid whores, etc.. I couldn't believe that any "educated" person would say such ridiculous things! The movie depicted women as men's property/items that could be bought for their enjoyment. For instance, Borat celebrates when his wife dies, talks about going to California to have Pamela Anderson's "vagine", and his love interest at the end of the movie is a prostitute.
This movie isn't only offensive to women; it features derogatory remarks about homosexuals and Jewish people, too. Before watching the movie, I was told by friends, " Don't go to it in theaters. Rent it so that you can laugh at all the parts without feeling guilty for thinking it's funny." Personally, I found the movie to be too distasteful to have any sort of comedic merit.
