Borat

Trivia: When Borat talks in "Kazakh," he is actually speaking Hebrew (with some Polish words thrown in) - ironic, considering the character's blatant anti-semitism in the film.

Trivia: The participants of this 'mockumentary' (none of whom were in on the joke) were all made to sign a release form so that the film makers could use the footage. In spite of this, several of those interviewed have since made unsuccessful attempts to sue the distribution company for fraud and defamation. Those that took action included the etiquette coach, plus two of the students with whom Borat hitchhikes with.

Factual error: Borat and Azmat are depicted having entered Atlanta and getting off at Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. which runs East and West. Atlanta does not have a road named "Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd." The MLK in Atlanta is "Martin Luther King Junior Drive" (00:35:50)
