Britain's satirist-of-all-trades Ali G (aka Sacha Baron Cohen) makes his feature-film debut with this gross-out comedy set against the backdrop of the House of Parliament. Where his British and U.S. TV shows had him conducting absurd interviews with real-life politicians and lawmakers, Ali G Indahouse casts him against Charles Dance as Carlton, an unscrupulous member of the House who's intent on upsetting the current Prime Minister (Michael Gambon) in the next election. Hoping to attract negative attention to the leader, Ali G is promoted as a running mate of sorts -- a tactic that backfires in Carlton's face as the clueless rapper quickly ascends the political ladder. ~ Michael Hastings, All Movie Guide

Faux Black, Faux Rap, Real Fun by talltale November 2, 2004 - 2:26 PM PST

I'd never seen Sacha Baron Cohen, the Brit performer who goes by the name Ali G, so I took a chance on ALI G: INDAHOUSE, his first foray into full-length film. The cast, which also includes acting great Michael Gambon and near-great Charles Dance (along with some other good performers) looked inviting, and although the movie started out like a lesser Wayans Brothers effort (not encouraging), as I stuck with it, I began to laugh more often. Whether I was just giving over to idiocy and dumbing-down, I'm not sure, but by the end, I'd had a very good time. Ali G. himself is OK but no great shakes (perhaps Britain has not yet had its fill of this kind of would-be-Black, would-be-rap satirical performer). Seeing Gambon and Dance clearly slumming yet never missing a beat, however, is worth every minute spent.
