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
This movie is not only incredibly funny, but it is also well written with likable characters.
I had to stop watching it after twenty minutes, and the only reason I put the movie back in was to see Borat's cameo.
I actually like stupid humor like Dumb and Dumber, but the humor in this movie is just too stupid and juvenile.

I really like most of what Cohen has done, but this movie was a major disappointment. The TV series was great--funny. Not this. A real waste. I can barely say I didn't hate it. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Holly

Funny, funny character. So overdone and cliché as to come back around to being a stunning execution of a complete tool. Baron is brilliant.Published 13 months ago by DavidGee
You've gotta love this movie. It encapsulates everything amazing about Sacha Baron Cohen's Ali-G character, and has a heartwarming message too!Published 15 months ago by Jesse Stallsmith
It's got a good story and plenty of silly sex humor. It has good supporting cast.
But wasn't as side splitting humor as Borat.
