Borat -- about those consent forms ...

Borat — about those consent forms …

I saw Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan about a month before it opened, and I spent that entire month resisting the urge to give away some of the movie’s bigger surprises, and telling people little more than, “I wonder why there haven’t been any lawsuits!” Well, the movie’s been out for two weeks now, and as you may have heard, the lawsuits have begun. I don’t care to rehash all the details here, but I will say that I am grateful for the controversy, because it has led to this interesting Associated Press story on the waivers signed by Borat‘s supporting characters, and the legalities revolving around such things. It all brings back memories of the form that I had to sign, myself, minutes before I was interviewed for The Big V.
