Overview

Ethnically indistinct and intellectually underwhelming hip-hopper Ali G (created and played by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen) stumbled into British politics in this comedy, which gets some extra bling for its release on DVD. Ali G Indahouse has been given a letterboxed transfer to disc in the widescreen aspect ratio of 1.85:1, which has also been enhanced for anamorphic play on 16 x 9 monitors. The audio has been mastered in Dolby Digital 5.1. The dialogue is in English with optional subtitles in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Korean, and Japanese. Bonus materials include a commentary track from Cohen performed in character as Ali G, a short feature on the making of the movie, a collection of outtakes and deleted scenes, a gallery of production stills, the original trailer, and a guide to recreating Ali G's distinctive (and often baffling) speech patterns.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Brian J. Dillard
Four years before Borat made Sacha Baron Cohen a household name, the creator of Da Ali G Show took an altogether different approach to bringing his characters to the big screen. Ali G Indahouse transplants its titular faux-B-boy protagonist from the mockumentary world of the television show into a jokey plot that veers from the London suburbs to the House of Commons. The result is closer to a joke-a-minute Leslie Nielsen outing than to the high-concept guerilla theater of Borat. But for those willing to accept the limitations of the genre, Ali G Indahouse is a perfectly enjoyable stoner comedy. The script is at its best when it's deconstructing the character of Ali G, a middle-class wannabe who wears hip-hop affectations like mix-and-match Garanimals. The opening scene -- a ridiculously over-the-top gangsta dream sequence featuring the most memorable prosthetic genitals this side of Boogie Nights -- earns enough comedy goodwill for audiences to forgive the fussy plot mechanics that sometimes slow down the rest of the picture. Then again, even the script's conventional elements generate considerable laughs. Throwaway bits of dialogue add fresh surprises to repeat viewings, while crass sight gags anticipate the most gross-out moments of Borat. Viewed on its own terms, rather than through the lens of its successor's success, it's hard not to like this low-key grab-bag of gags.

Found this video, viewed it and wow... Politically correct NOPE, Intellectually stimulating NOPE, Make you laugh ABSOLUTELY... Until I came across this movie had no idea who this guy was, now me is da biggasst fan ov me boi wit da glasses. Seriously this is a movie that is worth the money, will be a classic. Favorite scenes Intro 'the Debate' league of women voters' It's not a political movie, just a funny movie that has politics in it.
