WARNING: Rated PG. May contain nudity. 😊

Fourteen years ago cheeky satirist Sacha Baron Coen opened his Borat movie arriving in a horse and carriage at the Ryerson Theatre for TIFF. Except there were no horses, his carriage was outrageously pulled by women. Not sure he could pull that off today. But perhaps it's not surprising his new mockumentary comes with more cheek. Upon arriving at Polson Pier this morning I was greeted to this...

(By the way the Globe's review by Barry Hertz calls his new film a 'jaw-dropping masterpiece of cringe comedy'. Perhaps this is what 2020 needs more of?). Very niiiiiiiiiiiiice.

The smaller boat appears to be used as a photo shoot.

Had to search up Borat's "horse and carriage" at TIFF and was not disappointed. The fact that there was an actual donkey on the carriage too makes it even more outrageous.

Wow - I was in the theatre for that screening, so I didn't see the women pulling the carriage. Inside, the rumour was that he had shown up on a donkey. Huh!

I read about the Borat/Giuliani episode on another site...and with that and all due respect, I think I'll give this film a miss. >.<
