When the trailer for Next Borat movie Dropped online earlier this month, it made sense that the highly anticipated sequel’s climax would involve Sacha Baron Cohen’s iconic Kazakh character attempting to deliver his daughter as a gift to CPAC Vice President Mike Pence as he was dressed in an elaborate Donald Trump costume. .
In fact, that scene, which was picked up by conservative media in February – without anyone knowing Baron Cohen was behind the prank – comes and goes in the first third of the new film, on Amazon Prime Video today.
But while Pence comes out of the film more or less unscathed, another close confidant of the president does not.
The following details are accompanied by an important spoiler alert for anyone who doesn’t want to know what’s going on. At first it seemed that Rudy Giuliani himself might have ruined the ending last July when he revealed to his favorite newspaper the New York Post that he called the NYPD on Baron Cohen after the prankster comedian broke in an interview he was doing wearing what he described as a “pink transgender outfit.”
In Giuliani’s account, he was answering questions in front of a reporter’s camera when they were abruptly interrupted. “This person comes in yelling and screaming, and I thought it was a scam or a shakedown, so I reported it to the police. He then fled, ”said the former New York mayor and current personal lawyer for President Trump. “I didn’t realize until later that it had to be Sacha Baron Cohen. I thought about all the people he had fooled before and felt good about myself because he hadn’t understood me.
After watching the movie, it becomes quite clear that Baron Cohen certainly “got” Giuliani.
The larger premise of the always funny sequel, nimbly led by Jason Woliner, is that Borat Sagdiyev must redeem himself in the eyes of his country’s prime minister after shaming Kazakhstan with the original film. Ultimately, a plan is reached to marry his teenage daughter Tutar – played brilliantly by the mostly unknown and somewhat mysterious Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova – to someone in President Trump’s inner circle.
With Pence off the table – and most of Trump’s other close associates in prison – they set their sights on Giuliani. “Rudolph was Donald’s best friend around the world,” Borat says in his voiceover. “And also a very worthy statesman of the highest level. It wouldn’t be easy. “
“Fortunately, I discovered his preference for women with a high capacity for cheese production,” he adds, referring to another Page six article which claimed that Giuliani had “bragged to his friends that he had an affair with a married woman with ‘big breasts’.”
After a long while Borat tries to force Tutar into getting breast implants – and a revealing long, deep detour around the COVID-19 lockdown that includes the previously leaked prank, Baron Cohen has organized a rally of extreme militias right in Washington state – the film arrives during Giuliani’s fateful interview.
Impersonating a conservative journalist in the mold of Tomi Lahren – albeit with a heavy Eastern European accent – Tutar sits down with Giuliani in a Manhattan hotel suite for an “interview” in which she flatters him the most by flirting with her. “I’m going to relax you, do you want me to ask you a question?” Giuliani said laughing in response. After blaming China for the coronavirus, he agrees to “eat a bat” with his interviewer, who repeatedly touches his knee to push it.
Baron Cohen first interrupts the interview dressed as a sound engineer with a large boom mic, but leaves before it’s over. At this point, Tutar offers to “have a drink in the room” with Giuliani, who readily accepts.
“Giuliani then lies down on the bed and begins to stick his hands in his pants in a suggestive way.“
On what appear to be hidden cameras, we see Giuliani removing his microphone and asking for his phone number and address as he sits on the bed. He begins to stroke her back as she removes the microphone from her pants. Giuliani then lays down on the bed and begins to stick his hands in his pants in a suggestive way.
But before anything more can happen, Borat bursts into the room and yells, “Put down your chram!” – his favorite word for the penis. “She is 15 years old! She’s too old for you!
The surprised Giuliani, who had no reason to believe his interviewer was underage, abruptly sits down and gets out of there as fast as he can. “Rudy, Trump will be disappointed! You leave the hotel without a golden shower! Borat yells at him.
After that, the movie ends with another big and hilarious reveal that we won’t spoil here.
The Daily Beast reached out to Giuliani to clarify what exactly he thought was going on in that hotel room, and how far things could have gone before Baron Cohen interrupted them. So far, he has not responded. But clearly, it has become much more difficult than he originally wanted to admit.
