Borat's multi-pronged attack

I finally got see all of the Borat movie. Last week's viewing was aborted by a fire alarm, so I only saw 3/4 and had to go back again. Since everybody already knows it's very funny, I would like to say that it
  1. made me laugh very hard. Many times.
  2. made me feel sympathy for a prostitute.
  3. broke up a marriage.
  4. has movie critics under the delusion that they're intelligent. Every review I'ved read has had the obligatory worrisome paragraph stating they're worried people will understand it's only satire. Imagine that, movie critics thinking they're smarter than someone else.

I don't know of any other movie that can do all those things.
