Bling Bling is an assortment of Ali G's interviews; a couple of them with possibly the last people in Britain who didn't realise that someone was pulling their leg and several with American grandees of various sorts, including economist JK Galbraith and former CIA director Admiral Stansfield Turner. The real selling point, however, is Ali G's undeniably spectacular Comic Relief interview with David and Victoria Beckham, which, incidentally, presented the pair in a far more favourable light than any amount of avuncular fawning by Michael Parkinson. Bling Bling also includes quite a lot of Baron-Cohen's other alter-ego, hapless Kazakh! reporter Borat. Though Borat is a lazy and disappointing retreat to a time when British comedy was grounded in a belief that all foreigners are inherently hilarious--he's basically Manuel from "Fawlty Towers" with a microphone--he deserves kudos for the interview with an insufferable English undergraduate comedy troupe, in which he manages to get invited to slap two of them, and does so with the force they deserve.
On the DVD: The scene selector or, rather, "Scene Selecta" is straightforward enough. The only "extras" are some more Ali G interviews, and a trailer for the forthcoming Ali G film. --Andrew Mueller
Most importantly this release contains the Posh and Becks interview for Comic Relief, which was his best interview, ever!
Overall I think this release wont disappoint the exisiting fans and more than likely increase his fan club for the future!
From the intro with Ali in a strip club till the crdits at the end, this title is amazing.
Amazing interviews including US Gansters, Ali playing basketball with real brothers,
The Beckhams (Uncut)
CIA (Why do you send an Asian undercover?)
Economics (Supply and demand, is it like wiv me Julie I supply it and she demand it?)
Amimals (We should tell da animals to do summin useful or pissoff)
Ghosts (Me uncle Jemals house is haunted)
Evalution (So somewher down da line me nan did it wiv an ape?)
Borat gets his own massive chunk of time to show all his best bits and his hometown, as well as a visit to a real life English lord.
This is a great title if you like Ali get it
If you don't like Ali, get it for someone that does and watch it before you give it to them.
DVD extras include,
Borat learning to play cricket
Realife US Hospital ER
Ali In AD House movie trailer (Short but sweet)
Hassan N Hassan
