The 2006 film "Borat," starring Sasha Baron Cohen, is a comedy about a fictional man from Kazakhstan who comes to America and finds it very different than he expected. Its full title is "Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan." 

Backstory of Borat: Controversy and Criticism

The film is a style known as "mockumentary" (think "Spinal Tap"), and many of the Americans who Borat interviewed were supposedly unaware he was an actor and not a real Kazakh journalist.

(A few were none too pleased with how they were portrayed in the film, and claimed that they were duped into participating.)

The film and its highly crude humor made it extremely controversial even before it was released in theaters, and "Borat" was banned in many Arab countries.

Nonetheless, Cohen won a Golden Globe for his performance, and the movie was a critical and box office success.

Here are some weird and wild quotes from this unusual movie. Be warned that they're definitely not for a family audience and may be offensive to some readers.

Borat's Conversations With Others

Mike Jared: I'm, er... recently retired...
Borat: You are a retard?

Azamat: [arguing with Borat] What's in California?
Borat: [making it up] Pearl Harbor is there. So is Texas.

Borat: Your dog is a loser... you are upset?
Dog Show Contestant: No, no. I don't get upset. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.
Borat: You will put him in a sack in the river?

Borat  [To Veteran Feminists of America, on being questioned whether women should be educated] Is it not a problem that the woman have a smaller brain than a man? The government scientist Dr. Yamuka has proved it is size of squirrel.
