Borat Film Agreement

TMZ has accquired a copy of the Borat release form participants of the movie were asked to sign. It's fuzzy and hard to read, as the orignal apparently is as well. I would ask for another contract if this is what I got, but what is really more obvious is the cover letter.

Pat Haggerty said it best. Haggerty was unknowingly part of the film himself, and knew something wasn't right, which was confirmed by his college-aged son later...but he loved the film anyway. Haggerty said regarding the film:
"They were exercising a First Amendment right. And this Sacha Cohen is going to make 87 gazillion dollars. You know, good for him. I'm just sorry he had to do it in such a way that he allowed people to make jerks out of themselves exposing their character flaws."
You can read the entire article by clicking here. He's merely saying that these guys wouldn't be bitching about being in the movie if they hasn't said things that made them look like assholes. I saw the movie last weekend...and it was brilliant! I'm glad it was only one and and a half hours...more would have been overkill. But you got the sense throughout that'd he'd be seeing lots of lawsuits.
