Kazakh TV talking head Borat is dispatched to the United States to report on the greatest country in the world. With a documentary crew in tow, Borat becomes more interested in locating and marrying Pamela Anderson.
Jak sie masz? My name-a Borat. I like you. I like sex. Is nice!
Both Criswell Automotive and Perry Hall Driving School are located in the state of Maryland, yet Borat is still supposed to be in New York City at the time of these scenes.
For the film's US television premiere on USA Network in June 2009, the film is presented largely uncut -- including the infamous nude wrestling and chase between Borat and Azamat, which is censored with black bars -- but several of the harshest profanities and sexual terms are silenced and a label reading "CENZURAT" appears over mouths (and, where necessary, subtitles) in order to try and further hide which terms are being used.
