Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen), HBO's hottest comedy
sensation, stars in his side-splitting, outrageously
funny feature film DVD debut - Ali G
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.
The public's insatiable appetite for Sacha Baron Cohen's Ali G character - a white gangsta rapper wannabe hailing from leafy English suburbia - made his eventual transition to the big screen a racing certainty.
After a hilarious opening sequence shot on the mean streets of East LA, debutant director Mark Mylod sketches Ali's existence as self-styled leader of the 'West Staines Massive': hanging out with best mate Ricky C (Freeman), his affection for "Me Julie" (Bright), and teaching kids the rudiments of surviving ghetto life.
But the closure of his local leisure centre inspires our sartorially-challenged hero to enter politics, where he soon becomes embroiled in a battle of wits between the Prime Minister (Gambon) and his devious Chancellor (Dance). Our hero soon discovers that the corridors of power are even more dangerous than the mean streets of Langley Village and Iver Heath.
Those in favour of "Ali G Indahouse" say aye.
