Synopsis

Storyline:
Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) unwittingly becomes a pawn in evil Chancellor David Carlton’s (Charles Dance’s) plot to overthrow the Prime Minister of Great Britain (Sir Michael Gambon).

User Reviews: IMDb mark: 7

What a fun film this is! Especially the beginning… ‘Ali g Indahouse’ has got to have one of the greatest, funniest intros ever! Even the opening credits are hilarious. But you have to be open-minded. This movie certainly isn’t for the people who move their heads disapprovingly when they see you purchasing prophylactic wrappers. Getting back to the movie, this film is likely to offend not only older people but women, too. So, it is fairly obvious that the movie is intended for a restricted audience.

-Humour: There is more than a fair share of swearing in this movie. There are more than a few sexist remarks in this film. And yes, they are extremely funny. But there are even a few very funny lines that aren’t sexist or obscene. 25/25

-Physical Comedy: Sacha Baron Cohen is the one who provides nearly all of the funny stuff in this film, but he does it really well. He finds himself in predicaments and tense moments throughout the whole film, and some of his reactions are priceless. 17/20

-Plot: The plot is very far-fetched. One of Britain’s party leaders decides to use a stupid young man he sees outside making a fool of himself in his plot to overthrow the Prime Minister. But that young man isn’t just anyone, he is street tough Ali g, who is one bad dude. 6/15

-Ending: I didn’t think the ending was too great. Of course, taste varies. 4/10

-Theme: Not all people can be judged by their exterior. 9/10

-Nudity: There is no nudity in this film, although there are a couple of nude pictures of some unknown women briefly shown late in the film. 0/8

-Cast: I hadn’t heard of Sacha Baron Cohen before seeing this film, but apparently he is better-known in the United Kingdom, having his own series, ‘Da Ali G Show’. Other somewhat famous actors in this movie are Rhona Mitra and Charles Dance, and there is a cameo appearance by Naomi Campbell. 2/8

-Genre: This is a comedy. 4/4

–>Overall: 67/100

It’s so nice and refreshing to see a good sexist, lewd comedy among this bland sea of chick comedies. Since ‘Married… with Children’, I haven’t laughed this hard while seeing a new comedy. From Swordlord, 2 swords up!
