ever since i heard the frat boys were suing borat, i stopped liking them. they were so chill and awesome. if i met them we could have been bros. but they blew it. they don`t seem to think about the people that don`t know them until they saw them in the movie and then the moviegoers thought they were the awesomest people on the planet! and plotwise, no spoilers, borat was going thru a rough time! he needed to meet up with those college guys! although i am saddened at how much of a setup borat turns out to be. if it was more of a guerrilla comedy borat would be even bigger!

I hope the suit get tossed. I assume since they made it to university, they also have rudimentary reading skills, therefore...DON`T SIGN ANYTHING WITHOUT READING IT.

Come on, you know you`re getting drunk; nobody`s got you on a Pabst IV drip or anything...and you know you`re on camera...and you`re the one with the stupid remarks coming out of your mouth...if you want to be in control of your image, getting drunk and signing a release for it to be put in a movie isn`t really a very smart way to do it.

In American colleges, there are sororities for girls and fraternities for guys. Basically, you pay your way into the group but once in the group you have instant friends and to keep them you only have to keep paying your dues and go to every function they have.

The stereotype of a frat guy (that is not too far off) is a beer-bellied, beer-swilling boy that has keg parties every weekend and anonymous meaningless sex and do bizarre hazing rituals usually involving the mouth or ass. Seriously...

The entire movie was made to satirize America and show how stupid the majority of people in it are. These kids suing just continues to prove his point. I bet Mr.Cohen is happy about the suit.

Also, I bet Pamela wasn`t in on it till after he was handcuffed. Then him and his crew explained it all to her and her guards.

Oh come on. They got drunk, did stupid things, they need to learn to deal with it. Don`t sue just because you acted stupid. I would figure they`d be excited (for lack of a better word). They`re in a movie that`s made millions.

Those kids deserve to be humiliated, stupid little pricks.
Oh ya and Borat is funny, as long as your not an anal, long nosed librarian, with the sense of humor of a water buffalo.
If you are, you should not comment on anything closely related to humor, in fact you should just kill yourself.

Woot45 - someone needs a sense of humour transplant. Or were you just born retarded?

At the end of the day, no-one forced these twats to drink, and no-one forced them to say the things they said. I thought this was one scene in the film in particular where it wasn`t so much Borat making a fool of them, as much as them making fools out of themselves. I hope they lose.

People think sueing is a game, but it`s a lot of work. I doubt they are going to do it without their parent`s help.

this is stupid. i`m on the side of the frat boys. this shows that the whole encounter was totally staged. they were counting on the fact that the frat boys would say something stupid, and they went out of their way to make sure that that was what would happen. the frat boys deserve damages, and thats what the court will find.

This is so stupid, but it`s funny because I figured that whole thing was scripted. They really thought he was a real person hitch-hiking? What did they think the cameraman was there for? Retards. There`s some old saying that a drunk man`s words are a sober man`s thoughts. Those guys are pigs, and saying they were drunk doesn`t make it any less so. They were funny though.

don`t you have to sign release forms before they can even make it in to a movie?

those guys just want money because they think they can cheat some out of the Borat movie.

Just because they thought it was going to be shown outside the US does NOT justify them making those horrible racist/sexist comments. Stupid non-nice individuals got what they deserved.

Lol @ Woot45... Honestly, it`s not my sort of humour, I didn`t really find it all that funny and maybe I`m too *posh* for the movie- but come on, it`s a comedy and should be treated as such- just because you don`t share that sort of sense of humour doesn`t mean you should ridicule it.

p.s. silly students- they knew what they were saying- alcohol or not, they`re dumb

Borat is the stupidest, crudest movie ever made. If you like crude humor and sex jokes as your entertainment, you deserve to die. They should sue.

That`s what you get for getting drunk then doing things on camera. They only care because they realized what they said was just stupid, but since they signed the release, the case has no merit.

whats a frat boy?
and uh btw who cares about what 2 dumb teenagers have to say, the movie borat is still great. and if they made a horses`ass out of themselves, it`s theyre own fault, because it clearly says they willingly walked along inside the bar to loosen up

they knew what they were saying, it doesn`t matter that it`s for a major movie rather than a small documentary as they thought, they still said it, and they`re still knobends.

SmagBoy1, I agree with you 100%.

Frat boys aren`t exactly model citizens to begin with; add alcohol (as if you need to) and, well..."In Vino Veritas," as it used to be said. "In wine, there is truth," as it`s said these days. They were `duped,` indeed! What crap.

i agree that the students are ignorant f*cks and probably deserve it, but i can also understand why anybody from the movie would be mad about being misled about the purposes of the consent form that they had to sign. i honestly don`t blame them for the lawsuit. Several of the other people filmed are also upset about being misled about this being a major motion picture (or other misleading statements in the contracts they signed), but they haven`t officially filed lawsuits.

but, yeah...they are rather poor, pathetic bastards.

that guy who`s name is to log is right some people need a beating sometimes. who knows i might be one of ones who need a beating. wont change my mind on it. if rapists were castrated and murderers(thats a odd word) were killed in the same way they killed ther victims win caught the crime rate would drop off the chart.

This is so typical these days. A couple of spoiled, poohead little drats go out and do something stupid and instead of being held responsible for their actions, instead of being made to understand that there are consequences in life for being pooheads and signing very detailed release forms, their rich parents sue. This not only encourages their behavior, it even validates it.

What a sad statement about our culture. Seriously. Why not take your damn medicine, you little pricks, and learn something about acting like a decent person and not blaming others for your misdeeds? I know I must sound like a grumpy old man ("back in my day..."), but damn. :-(
