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)
Trivia: Initially banned in Kazakhstan, the ban was lifted after the film sparked a tourism boom.
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.
Borat: We didn't fly, just in case the jews repeated their attack of 9/11.

Borat: Is this the owner of the house? Did you shrink her? Please Gypsy lady don't shrink me, I just want your tears.
Question: There is a scene where Borat is queueing up to see Pamela Anderson, he gets to her, asks her to marry him and when she refuses he puts a large sack over her head to try and abduct her. Now I know Borat is a spoof character, and everyone he meets believes he is real, however that scene was quite dramatic and security would have been tight around her. That action could have got Sacha Baron Cohen in some serious trouble, or even worse, shot by one of her security guards. Was Pamela in the know on this scene, or was it genuinely as we see it?
