GREENLIGHT#91: Borat (with "Moscow on the Hudson" and "Waiting for Guffman")

Ann and Les don't agree at all on the merits of Borat (2006.) Well, OK, both agree that the movie is bold and brash; that it's an equal opportunity offender; and that Sacha Baron Cohen is fantastic but that's where the agreement ends. Les thought it was over-the-top gross and, therefore, not funny. Ann thought that as gross as it is it maintained an innocence about it that allowed her to laugh-out-loud. He gives it a bright red. She a bright green. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends a much gentler but still very amusing film about a foreigner finding his way in the United States called Moscow on the Hudson (1982.) It stars Robin Williams and Maria Conchita Alonso and he says it's a charmer directed Paul Mazursky. Ann recommends a modern classic about a man dreaming of greatness that's directed by and starring Christopher Guest along with his amazing troupe of comic actors. Guest plays a small-town director with dreams of Broadway in this film called Waiting for Guffman (1996.)
