Ali G comes to the big screen in this hilarious movie.
Ali G becomes an MP in order to save a local lesiure centre with hilarious results.
Yes it can never happen. Yes it is unrealistic. Yes its silly.
BUT it is hilarious and entertaining so if you can turn of your brain for 90ish mins, you can enjoy this.
The picture and sound are really great for a british made low budget movie. Picture is sharp clean and crisp. Colours are very vibrant. The soundtrack is also cool and clear.
"Bone Us" features include some deleted scenes and documentaries about the production which were good. Also a hilarious commentary by ali g and ricky c. There was no sign of the video to the song Julie which was surprising cos he features in the video and it is funny and its on the soundtrack.
Overall a fun outing from the man from staines.
Big it up for the west side.
If your`re an Ali G fan, then you must get this dvd.
If you aint, its still worth a rental

In 2002, Ali G arrived on the big screen with this feature film. Ali becomes MP for Staines while trying to save his local leisure centre. All goes well for him until a scandal about the UN conference emerges and Ali is forced to resign. With the help of his friends, Ali attempts to save the centre. This is at times a very funny film. But maybe the jokes are a bit stretched over the 85 minute running time.

Both picture and sound quality are excellent. The best extra is undoubtly the audio commentary with Ali G and his mate Ricky C. This is funnier then the actual film and is well worth several listens. Other extras include deleted scenes, a making of featurette, a `talk the talk` feature which explains many of the words used in the film, a photo gallery and trailer.

This is an entertaining film presented on a very good disc. Recommended for Ali fans and also for anyone who likes a good comedy.
