Hey 3.5 readers. BQB here.
An oldie but a goodie. Kind of a cult classic.
Before he found American fame as Borat, Sasha Baron Cohen was Ali G. You know how sometimes white kids in the US pretend to be black in the hopes of looking cool? Apparently that happens in England too, except the white kids pretend to be Jamaican.
At any rate, the guy who plays Tywin Lannister on Game of Thrones plays the Deputy Prime Minister. In a conspiracy to undermine the prime minister, he recruits total buffoon/white kid trying to be Jamaican Ali G run for parliament in the hopes he will embarrass the prime minister out of office, leaving him to take over.
As expected, Ali G douches his way to the top, teaches us all kinds of hilarious British swears (minga and batty the top two I remember) and despite his total incompetence, manages to save the day, as well as his favorite leisure center in the epically ghetto neighborhood of Staines.
Main thing that makes me sad is how time fast as gone. That dude that plays the Hobbit plays Ali’s best friend and he looks so young.
Anyway, check it out.
