Ali G In Da USAiii, Channel 4

by | Feb 21, 2003 | All, Reviews

• Ali G’s interview with Sam Donaldson of ABC News, confusing Waterworld for Watergate. Not funny… apart from Ali’s suggestion that newspapers should try to get more readers by printing the headline “War Begins” on page one and then putting “With A W” on page two.

• Borat’s wine tasting (seen in Borat’s Television programme). Funny

• Ali G interviews Daryl Gates, ex-LAPD chief, confusing the OJ Simpson case with The Simpsons (“Aint it wrong for police to be getting involved with murders on a cartoon?”). Funny

• Ali G talking about gang hand signs with a Washington detective. Not funny

• Ali talking to a police dog handler: “Why do you use canines when you could use dogs?” “When they find a bomb, how long does it take a dog to defuse it?” Funny.

• Bruno meets the pastor/gay convertor (seen in Borat’s Television programme). Funny

Total: Four funny; two not funny
