The satirical movie stars the Jewish British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen as a fictional Kazakh television reporter who tours the United States, and includes numerous anti-Semitic and racist references.


It is currently the most popular film at box offices in the United States, Britain, and a number of other countries.
