(CNN) Like any sequel, "Borat Subsequent Moviefilm" faces the challenge of what to do for an encore, 14 years and a big box-office haul later.
Somehow, though, Sacha Baron Cohen hasn't lost the power to deliver audacious surprises, with enough explosive, not-suitable-for-anywhere laughs to power through the flatter patches this sort of exercise inevitably yields.
Success hasn't spoiled "Borat," but it has complicated the process of becoming him.
(Hence the latest unwieldy subtitle, "Delivery of Prodigious Bribe to American Regime for Make Benefit Once Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan.")
