Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is an audacious, brilliant sequel that is better than the original in every single way. It is more insightful, has more shock value, and it’s considerably funnier.

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm (2020)
As a big fan of the original Borat film, I was obviously excited when the sequel was announced. However, I was fully aware of the stigma regarding sequels, and I tapered my expectations.
Much to my surprise, I found the 2nd installment to be very enjoyable. Just like the original, The Subsequent Moviefilm has a large handful of shocking and laugh-out-loud moments.
Borat 2 also has many somewhat amusing jokes, and several gags that aren’t that funny, but this is to be expected from nearly any comedy these days.
My only real criticism of the sequel is that it feels very relevant to the current events of 2020, so it may not be nearly as funny in five years or so. All in all, Borat Subsequent Moviefilm is a worthy sequel of the original.
