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.
When Ali G meets with Borat the camera changes from Ali G to Borat. If you look at the back of Ali G's head, he is darker - clearly somebody else. See more »

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 »
Ali G loses no effect on the big screen - a hilarious comedy!
Ali G earned his fame on the small screen - though the big screen has not lost him any kudos either. Ali G Indahouse is a hilarious laugh-a-second fun fest - just like on the small screen. He has lost none of his character or stupidity at all, and behind all that - none of the film is brainless fluff either. A human side to Ali is revealed during the film, the idea of Ali G running for PM is a brilliant, fresh and funny one - and the incessant stupidity of Staines' gangster man is mixed well with the stern, harsh world that is politics. The film is also full of brilliant new characters - and instead of just interview after interview, we get a proper comedy film that never gets repetitive or boring. So why didn't I give it ten stars? Well, the ending was funny, but also botched and failed - none of it made sense. And in parts, the film became offensive in trying to be funny - but that's Ali G for you - if it isn't offensive, it isn't itself, and it is totally and utterly ruined. Ali G's big screen debut was a success in my belief, and should have got into the 6-7 average rating range on IMDb. But it could have got worse as well, and people are bound to have mixed opinions, especially on a film such as this.
On the whole, Ali G Indahouse is hilarious British comedy at its best - and funniest, and most clever. A great job! 9/10
