Plot Synopsis

Sacha Baron Cohen portrays three different characters who travel across the United States interviewing and taunting people about American culture. The main character, Ali G, is a white wannabe rap star who sees himself as a journalist -- and talks with people like Sam Donaldson about Nixon's "Waterworld" crisis -- despite being dressed in his trademark yellow track suit, wraparound glasses and pullover hat. His two other alter egos -- Borat, a naive TV reporter from Kazakhstan and Bruno, a campy Austrian fashion and style journalist -- later starred in their own popular theatrical films.
