“Ali G Indahouse”
a review by Darby O’Gill

What’s that? You didn’t know there was an Ali G movie? Well there’s a good reason for that… it’s God awful! This 100% scripted movie takes the character of Ali G and throws him into the storyline of a bad ‘90’s SNL movie. I know! “Ali G Indahouse” was released in 2002, between Season 1 & 2 of the American series of “Da Ali G Show” for HBO. It’s nice to know that something in the U.K. can get so popular, that even they will rape it for the price of a movie ticket. And here I always thought that was just an American thing. Something that shocked me even more, was when I saw some of the people they got to be in this abomination. One of my favorite actors from “The Office,” Martin Freeman, plays one of Ali’s friends. But the worst part is that he beat-boxes in it… so sad. They even got proper actors like Michael Gambon and Charles Dance to somehow agree to be seen in this film. The story in a nutshell is, Ali works at a community center; but wait, it’s going to be shutdown. Oh, no! But don’t worry, somehow Ali becomes a member of Parliament, and becomes a pawn in a plot to overthrow the Prime Minister, but then helps to return the Prime Minister to power, which he then uses to save the community center. I couldn’t make this up if I tried. Wow. No, really… wow! It’s amazing we got a decent Borat movie after this bomb. Speaking of which, Borat does make a cameo appearance that is shot like a big, oh my god, but they’re the same guy, how can this be, kind of moment. I can’t even go on. I respect you, my readers, too much to subject you to this any longer. Just go back to not knowing that it ever existed and your life will be better for it. Let’s just rate this crap and move on.

Please let the record show that I did not name these special features, they are written that way on the back of the DVD. I would also like the record to show that I didn’t watch any of these special features, because I watched it on my Xbox’s Netflix account. But for the sake of thoroughness, I will be reviewing them once the disc arrives in the mail. So look forward to that wonderful little nugget of an update.
