Ali G (Sacha Baron Cohen) unwittingly becomes a pawn in evil Chancellor David Carlton's (Charles Dance's) plot to overthrow the Prime Minister of Great Britain (Sir Michael Gambon). However, instead of bringing the Prime Minister down, Ali is embraced by the nation as the voice of youth and "realness", making the Prime Minister and his government more popular than ever.
During the entire duration of this movie, Ali G was only seen once not wearing a headgear, and this was during his dream sequence with the dominatrix. See more »
At the end, when Ali samples a large marijuana joint and exhales for a very long moment, he doesn't quite manage to keep his lips in the exact same position and it becomes obvious the smoke is not really coming out of his mouth but from some device hidden behind him. See more »
Jezzy, iz you wearing green? I knew it - you iz defected to the Iver 'Eath posse, innit? Come on - let's stab him!
No, no - wait! Me mum, yeah, she put me yellow top in the wash with me brother's blue football socks even though they ain't colourfast.
All right. But you tell that slag, that in the ghetto, washing non-colourfast synthetics at 60 degrees could cost you your life...

At the end of the film over part of the closing credits, Ali comes on screen imploring the audience to buy all the merchandise. See more »
Iin the original cut, the movie opens with Ali G appearing over the BBFC Certificate and changes the categorization from '15' to '18'. He goes on to warn about having sex in the back row of the cinema (other people's semen on the seats) and to suggest that our enjoyment will be enhanced by lighting a spliff. This thirty second introduction is missing from all international theatrical releases as well as all current home video releases. See more »
Sacha Baron Cohen is a genius. And this movie is good! Although the film doesn't nearly reach the quality of the tv-show, it's still very funny and has some seriously wicked moments! I've liked Ali G since the first time I saw the material from the show. I think he's one of the best comedy characters of all time.. up there with say, Peter Dragon ("Action") and The Blues Brothers. Biggest surprise with this film was that they've actually got some serious actors to do it (Dance and Gambon). After this I will absolutely respect them even more, for having the good sense to take this chance. I have nothing really bad to say about this film, it's very funny. Very juvenile, but hey, so what?!
One more thing to mr. G: SEQUEL, PLEASE!
