What is the best comedy film of the century so far?
It’s certainly a difficult question. Nevertheless, when such a question comes up in conversation, you often hear the same films bounced around.
These include Superbad, Bridesmaids, Step Brothers, Shaun of the Dead, Deadpool… the list goes on.
However, it’s pretty much a sure bet that somebody at the table will declare Borat! Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan their movie of choice.
Directed by Larry Charles and starring Sacha Baron Cohen as the titular Kazakh journalist, the film took the world by storm upon release in 2006. Merchandise, references and catchphrases were somewhat inescapable.
Many praised the film for its approach, as a range of the reactions to Borat shot throughout the film are authentic.
Sacha’s devotion to the character has become the stuff of legend since and against all odds a sequel is incoming!

This news comes courtesy of The Independent.
Collider reports that the film has been shot and completed, noting that a test screening has already taken place.
As acknowledged by The Independent, the film was graced with a title over on the Writer’s Guild of America website, but it has since been deleted.
The full title reads:
Borat: Gift of Pornographic Monkey to Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence to Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation of Kazakhstan.
It is strikingly similar to the original title in terms of its long-winded nature and its purpose to make audiences laugh even before seeing the film. Perhaps we’ll see it roll out under this title sometime within the next few months.
