The boys from 'Borat'

Posted By on Sun, Nov 12, 2006 at 1:08 PM

If you've seen 'Borat' then you probably asked yourself, as I did, what the hell those frat dudes were thinking talking they way they did on camera (not that it's excusable talk that way off camera either, but I'm just sayin').  Well, turns out they think they were duped into making those statements by Mr. Baron Cohen and his crew and they've filed suit in Los Angeles.

From the L.A. Times,

The plaintiff's attorney, Olivier Taillieu, told the Associated Press that his clients "were put into an RV and were made to believe they were picking up Borat the hitchhiker." After a bout of heavy drinking, they signed a release form they were told "had something to do with reliability issues with being in the RV."

One can only imagine the explantion to their parents, "But mom, Mr. Borat made me drink and talk that way."  Sure he did.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
