The Sun sends a reader to Kazakhstan to find out if Borat is right.
  • He concludes that the real Kazakhstan is different from what Borat portrays - but pretty much just as bad.

Daniel Craig's performance as James Bond has been hailed as "terrific" and "simply brilliant" in early reviews of his 007 debut in Casino Royale.
  • I've seen Craig in several movies, and his performances are uniformly excellent, so I have always expected him to be a great Bond despite the apparent physical mismatch that many people were worried about. He's probably the best actor ever to essay the part.

A CD filled with songs that dogs like.
  • They prefer the sound of sambas, squeak-toy noises, can openers, and somewhat surprisingly, "Sometimes When We Touch."

Daily Box Office for Friday, November 3, 2006 - Borat goes insane!!!
  • Never seen anything like this. Although it was only in 837 theaters, Borat took in almost as much as Santa Clause 3 and Flushed Away added together - and they were in a combined 7100 theaters! I guess internet hype can work if the film is more than just a title. Borat took in an incredible $10,800 per theater. To give you some idea of that that means, Revenge of the Sith took in only $9,200 per theater on its opening Friday!
  • The other two openings had to be disappointing, but kiddie films don't do as well on Friday as on Saturday. Neither of them could unseat last week's champion, Saw 3, although Santa Clause 3 did manage a tie, albeit in more theaters. In terms of revenues per theater, Saw 3 remained the highest among widely-distributed films at $1,600 - about 15% of what Borat achieved.

"Naked man arrested after pulling awl from rectum"
  • "Mindful that a 6-inch metal awl wrapped in black electrical tape could be used as a weapon, officers kept their weapons trained on the 33-year-old."
  • Darn the luck, if he had pulled out a screwdriver, they would have had to let him go scot-free. Hey, it's Northern California. Sadly, he was tired of being screwed in the ass, and was looking for something a little different.
  • Hence the origin of the phrase "it's awl good."

You know young boys love action figures, so their Christmas will be really special when they open up the Dr. Laura Talking Action Figure.
  • Make sure they open this last, because once they start playing with this, they will lose interest in their other presents - at least until Talking Dr. Laura's good counsel sets them straight!

The trailer from Balls of Fury
  • An outrageous new comedy. In this secret society, the competition is brutal and the stakes are high. It is the unsanctioned, underground, and utterly unhinged world of clandestine Ping-Pong tournaments. Down-and-out former professional Ping-Pong phenom Randy Daytona (Dan Fogler) is sucked into this maelstrom when FBI Agent Rodriguez (George Lopez) recruits him for a secret mission. Randy is determined to bounce back and win, and to smoke out his father's killer – arch-fiend Feng (Christopher Walken).
