RATINGS (out of 5): Movie | Audio | Video | Overall

Okay, here’s a movie we’ve just gotta talk about. Subtitled, The Sexual Learnings of America for Make Benefit Beautiful Nation of Kaksuckistan, Horat is a softcore parody of British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s 2006 smash Borat. And, while softcore versions of hardcore movies have certainly been issue before — MTI did a nice job with R-rated versions of Digital Playground’s Pirates series a few years back — isn’t it a little late to be issuing a Borat parody four years and one Bruno after the original? Not that we don’t get a kick out of porn parodies — Edward Penishands, The Da Vinci Load and all the rest — but, hell, the hardcore version of Horat was released in the fall of 2008, and the joke was already past its prime!

Then again, Tommy Pistol’s send up of Cohen’s fictitious Kazakh journalist traveling through the United States is pretty cute. And the film’s roster of popular adult stars, which includes Delotta Brown, Gia Paloma and Nautica Thorn, are quite lovely. Hmmmm, maybe we liked it more than we thought…

Honestly, though, if you’re looking for sexy softcore, there is a lot better out there to choose from, most of which was produced primarily for a softcore audience. And if your specifically looking for a softcore porn parody, well, then we humbly suggest you use your imagination…
