Weekend Box Office: Anti-American “Borat” & “Babel” (pro-Illegals/Islamists, too); Charming Animated “Flushed Away”

By Debbie Schlussel
If you’re stuck taking kids to the movies, this weekend, you have the pick of the new flicks. As for the other two, it’s anti-American all the way:
* “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan“–Pretentious Hebrew-speaking British comedian and Madonna-friend poses as Kazakhstan journalist to ridicule Red State America, taking advantage of the kindness of Americans. Mostly sick, far less funny than “Da Ali G Show.” Remember, the rest of the world is laughing at us, and with Borat/Sacha Baron Cohen. Read my complete review, “‘Borat’: The Joke’s on You, America.”

* “Babel“–If you wanted an escapist film to help you forget your problems, this ain’t it. Dreadful, disturbing and full of angst, watching this long propaganda piece, starring Brad Pitt, will stress you out. It figures the message of a movie starring Mr. Angie Voight (a/k/a Angelina Jolie) would be as anti-American as this. The message: Muslims & Illegal Aliens–Good; Americans & Other Westerners– Selfishly, Atrociously Bad. Oh, and Deaf Japanese girls like to show you their naked crotches and are desperately easy and suicidal.
The plot (if you can call it that): Two innocent, rural Moroccan Muslim boys accidentally shoot an American tourist in a tour bus. This starts the whole world and the U.S. into a tizzy about a Muslim terrorist attack, when it’s just two innocent young boys who are bored and playing target practice with a rifle. The woman and her husband, Pitt, are wealthy San Diegans with two beautiful blonde kids being raised by their kindly, hard-working, nourishing illegal alien Mexican housekeeper.
The couple are selfish, self-absorbed and going through marital problems because their third kid just died of SIDS. Desperate to survive in rural Morocco, they are helped by all the kindly, generous-hearted, non-extremist Muslims in the mountains of Morocco who help them survive and won’t even accept a penny from them, while the U.S. Embassy and State Department won’t help them because of politics (about the only think realistic in this entire movie). Contrast the kindly, non-prejudiced Moroccans portrayed in the movie with the fact that, this week, a Moroccan won Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Holocaust cartoon contest.
They are so selfish, they ask their kindly illegal alien maid to miss her son’s wedding to take care of their kids. But, instead, the illegal alien maid takes the kids to her son’s wedding in Mexico, but through a series of bad incidents, no fault of her own, she and the kids are harassed by those mean, prejudiced Customs and Border Protection officers at the border, while trying to get back in the States. Then, they’re harassed by those mean, prejudiced Border Patrol Agents in the desert. Then, even though the maid has lived in the U.S. for 16 years and raised the blonde, rich kids, she is deported by our mean Immigration and Customs Enforcement Detention and Removal Operations (maybe it was DRO sachem John Torres in the movie?).
Woven in and out of the story is the bizarre, depressing story of the desperate Japanese teenage deaf girl who enjoys displaying her crotch a la Sharon Stone. Did I really need to see her crotch? Not really.
Best part of the movie (other than when it ended): a cool Japanese remix of Earth Wind & Fire’s “September.” But certainly not worth sitting through this 2-hour anti-Western, anti-American, pro-illegal alien, pro-Islamist bore.

* “Flushed Away“–This animated movie is the pick of this week’s box office litter (and the choices, literally, are litter). A great movie for kids that adults will enjoy, complete with mild rock tunes in the mix. This was dreamed up by Dreamworks’ brilliant Jeffrey Katzenberg, whom I had the opportunity to meet, this summer, when parts of the movie were shown at a special screening. I thought it was cool that he, himself, traveled around to promote his project to audiences of average Americans (and their kids) in Middle America.
An English pet mouse of a rich family gets flushed down the toilet into a nether parallel international universe in the sewer system. Very charming. Mostly English accents, though.

Hollywood is making movies for the Muslims.
It looks like the wealthy Arabs pay more to watch Hollywood. And, does anyone know if the sheiks have a share in any of Hollywood’s production companies?

There you have it.

The Hollywood Left anti-American propaganda is unrelenting. They used to say, “Hooray for Hollywood!” I say, “To Hell with Hollywood!” Most sell-ebrities wouldn’t know reality if it came up and bit them on their pseudo-socialist asses.

Nice to see Alan Colmes’ Larry-King-like interview of “Borat” last night on H&C. Colmes actually looked like he was learning something. It had some novelty value the first time Cohen joked that GWB’s father is Barbara, but not much he offers is remotely funny.
Betting on a busy Borat box office this week, then to the dollar house within 2 weeks – if not straight to DVD

Michael Medved visits his local affiliate Fridays and kibitzes with the A.M. yakkers, which includes movie reviews. This week one of the movies he reviewed was “Borat”. He thought it was great! He said it was the funniest movie he has seen in a very long time, and thinks the actor playing Borat is (I’m paraphrasing here) a comedic genius.
IMHO, people who watch 3 or 4 movies a week, every week, burn out parts of their brain.
SINCE I ONLY SEE, ON AVERAGE, ABOUT ONE MOVIE A WEEK (SOMETIMES, TWO), YOU MUST BE TALKING ABOUT MEDVED ON THE BURNOUT PART. HE’S ON CRACK IF HE TRULY BELIEVES WHAT HE SAID ABOUT “BORAT.” AND NOT THE SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE HE PRETENDS TO BE. ONE DOESN’T JIBE WITH THE OTHER.

AHAHA! I just noticed something REALLY funny! So, there’s this article, right? The one you’re looking at now…all upset about how Borat makes fun of Americans…scroll down a bit, and you’ll see this one:
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/archives/2006/11/a_little_too_se.html
Yup, one about Americans being too sensitives…
Looks like someone needs to take thier own advice!!
HAHA FUNNY. BUT NOT THE SAME THING. AT ALL. IF HE MADE FUN OF FAT PEOPLE, I’D SAY FINE. OR WOMEN. BUT HE EXCLUSIVELY (EXCEPT FOR A SHORT SCENE WITH AGING FEMINISTS) MADE FUN OF RELIGIOUS CHRISTIANS, CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS, AND RED STATE INSTITUTIONS–SOUTHERNERS, RODEO FANS, EVANGELICALS, ETC. COMPLAINING ABOUT IT IS NOT “BEING TOO SENSITIVE.” IF MICHAEL MOORE WAS A COMEDIAN, THIS IS THE MOVIE HE’D DO.

I’m glad you only see one movie a week Debbie.
But I do belive Medved sees 3 or 4 a week, which has got to cause some brain-burn.

What the? on November 4, 2006 at 10:31 pm

I’d say michael moore is a comedian. It’s especially funny when he tries to say he’s like “every other american”. Maybe after his first movie, but I try to ignore anything after that.

Keep the movie reviews coming, Debbie. You keep me informed about the garbage spewing out of holly-weird. I refuse to sit through another 2hour Anti-American spiel, and I can trust you to out them.

I saw the movie last weekend. I thought it was funny at parts, but I left with an overwhelming icky feeling. The parts where he was making a fool of his own character were as good as ever. The parts where he was doing awful things to perfectly friendly people were shameful.
My theory is that movie critics love this movie for the same reason they love all those post-modern pretentious pieces of junk: they see so many movies, they give huge bonus points to any movie that’s different than what they normally see.

“non-extremist Muslims” hahahahaha. Wake-up, USA. Wake-up. I think there is no mirrors in your country.
