    Ali G addicts have been fretting over the British comedian's spiraling popularity. As word of his outrageous celebrity interviews spreads--the deer-in-the-headlights gaze of his victims as they wrestle with incredulity over his audacious stupidity is itself always worth the price of admission--his pool of potential victims naturally diminishes. Not to worry: Ali G as a character has enough flexibility to make the leap to full-length film. The transition is far from perfect: few moments in Ali G Indahouse can match the unforced hilarity of Da Ali G Show. The film's biggest drawback, in fact, is the absence of the real-life personalities we know from the interview format; it's the friction between them and comic actor Sacha Baron Cohen's imposter shtick that generates so many howlers. Ali G Indahouse, in contrast, hangs on a silly plot. The setup of fictional characters interacting with Ali G simply can't have the same payoff.

    Said plot is nothing more than a vehicle to subject the hip-hop poseur to a variety of ridiculous situations. He finds himself the unexpected champion in a parliamentary election and has to deal with the devious plotting of the Machiavellian Chancellor of the Exchequer (played by Charles Dance, who undergoes all manner of extreme humiliation). The result is a mix of Dumb and Dumber and Leslie Nielsen-esque pratfalls, with a hint of the Peter Sellers character in Being There. A good deal of the intended irony falls flat, and the litany of dated jokes calculated to offend all over the spectrum gets tiresome: from raunchy malapropisms to Ali G's recurrent obsession with being perceived as gay. But Baron Cohen's genius for getting under the skin of his creation remains undiluted. One aspect of special interest to Ali G fans is the light Ali G Indahouse throws on topics that are always behind the scenes in the Ali G Show context. We actually see Ali's Nana and his crib in suburban Staines, and "me Julie" (Kellie Bright) becomes a focal point as the story unwinds. Genial Borat makes an appearance (and gets dissed by Ali); we even learn the secret origin of Ali G's name (an abbreviation of Alistair Graham). It all might add up to a guilty pleasure, but hey--check yaself before ya wreck yaself. --Tom May

    Product Description

    Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen), HBO's hottest comedy sensation, stars in his side-splitting, outrageously funny feature film debut - Ali G Indahouse! The hip-hopping, white gangsta-rapper wannabe gets entangled in the evil Chancellor's plot to overthrow the Prime Minister of Great Britain (Michael Gambon, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). But, instead of bringing him down, Ali G is embraced by the nation as the voice of youth and "realness," making the Prime Minister and his government more popular than ever.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A surprizing winner ! ! ! June 14, 2005
    Format:DVD
    First of all, a brief disclaimer... if you're a fan of the series... you'll probably be disappointed. Gags and storyline take the place of Ali G's unique trademark... interviewing the top talking heads of our generation and getting them to say the most ridiculous things imaginable (My first dose of him was he was interviewing an expert on terrorism and managed to get him to complate how the government could prepare for terrorists crashing a train into the White House...) His victims think they're interviewing a new type of young journalist in touch with the young generation... the ongoing question being is are they playing along, or really victims of the joke. That said...

    As stupid as the concept would seem, this movie is hillarious to the point of brilliance... and by hillarious I mean that even after multiple watchings its still funny. Beyond the low ANIMAL HOUSE/Howard Stern type humor (which IS funny in itself ) the film is conceptually held together by simply presenting Peter Seller's BEING THERE charactor as a wannabe b-boy - - In doing so, the film is able to have MTV Jackass type humor with a coherent story to boot... the film never ceases to be hllarious. Contrary to the misconception of some that Ali G is parodying hip hop culture, the film sets asides all doubts of who is charactor really is.... a white boy who lives with his mum, and who's entire world is an MTV music video fantasy. Cohen's parody sheds ridiculous light on the phenomena of (often) spoiled and bratty suburban white kids pretending to be black and from the hood...

    4.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to the reviews. November 5, 2004
    Format:DVD
    Alot of people were sort of let down with this film. I almost didn't watch this film due to some bad reviews I had read. If there's one thing I've learned over the years it's that most film reviewers don't know what they're talking about. If movie reviewers know so much why don't they make their own films? Be your own judge when it comes to movies. I've seen alot of great films get thrown in the crapper because of bad reviews.
    Not watching this film would have been a big mistake on my part. Ali G Indahouse was full of laughs from the opening scene. Sure it's not the most intelligent film but it sure as hell ranks up there with the best comedy flicks of the past 10 years. I don't think I've seen a film that made me laugh this hard in a long time. I'm sure the people who hated this film loved the lame American Pie trilogy or the completley unfunny and unorigional Old School.
    Even the deleted scenes in this film are hilarious. There's one deleted scene that made me cry laughing. It was a parody of west side story involving a booger fight.
    Take it from me (a comedy writer), Ali G Indahouse is a funny movie worth watching. If you don't get at least one or two good laughs out of this film e-mail me and tell me what a moron I am.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Stick with the HBO series October 29, 2004
    Format:DVD
    Ali G is one of the great characters created by Sacha Baron Cohen that is the star of HBO's series, Da Ali G Show. The series on HBO is spectacular, as Cohen feeds on the Andy Kaufman style of comedy, walking the line between comedy and downright irritation. Discussing intellectual subjects with experts, Cohen plays Ali G as an ignorant and poorly spoken talk show host, always putting his guests in awkward spots of conversation. It's brilliant and hilarious to watch, I have not missed an episode yet.

    That said, this movie is a travesty, and should be skipped by anyone who truly appreciates Cohen's gift. His style of comedy is best presented in a live situation with off-the-cuff comments and queries. In this movie, the humor is almost too forced, it lacks spontenaity and more often than not falls into cliched humor and tired jokes. The plot is not only weak but super predictable. I do give this two stars instead of one, as there are 3 or 4 jokes that actually did make me laugh. However, as a whole, this movie was a serious waste of time and an insult to the true genius of Cohen.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Show but Funny on it's own. December 23, 2005
    Format:DVD
    I love the show as it is funny to see Sacha ask silly questions while looking serious and the people being interviewed being completely lost or thinking he is out of his mind.

    Those expressions on the show are really what makes it so funny...if anyone seen the short Andy Rooney clip then you would know what I mean.

    Many people on these reviews have noted that they love the show but they hate the movie. Too many people wanted the same thing in the movie as in the show ala the MTV Jackass show and the movie being the same.

    However I think they took a risk and just made a movie from the view of Ali G not Sacha...I think the gamble paid off.

    Sure the humor is low brow and all but if you went into the movie thinking it would be otherwise, maybe you were not being too smart.

    I thought the movie was very funny and kept me laughing many times and I have watched it numerous times.

    The ONLY thing that irked me was they only gave Sacha's Borat character a 2-3 second cameo and he is what I find the funniest on the show.

    I think it would have been very funny to see the borat character and ali g character interact some more with Borat trying to hug or do something to ali g.

    But all in all this is a very funny movie...unless you are a prude or think you are going to get a longer version of the show.
