Borat movie still at 100% positive rating on RottenTomatoes.com

I think this can't last, because even really well received movies often only reach 70% approval. Does this mean the Borat movie is a cinematic masterpiece? Probably not... The Tomato Meter is a really crude tool, as reviews all across the Favorable/Unfavorable spectrum are boiled down to a one-bit value.

Still, it's kind of awesome that Sasha Baron Cohen has this little moment in the sun. Of all the people trying to be funny in the last 10 years, no one has made me laugh harder.

My favorite Ali G joke? He's interviewing a feminist professor, and asks her "Which is better, men or women?" and she says "What do you mean by 'better'?" and he says "Like when one fing is better than anovver." I don't even know why that puts me over the edge, but it does.
