Ali G Indahouse: The Movie is a 2002 movie directed by Mark Mylod starring the fictional character Ali G, performed by the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen.
The film is the first in a sort of trilogy of films based of Baron Cohen's characters from Da Ali G Show television show, the second being Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, and the rumoured third being Brüno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt.
Ali G is the leader of Da West Staines Massiv, a fictional gang composed of a group of wannabe gangstas from Staines (a small, affluent, suburban town to the west of London); their chief rivals are Da East Staines Massiv. After he goes on a hunger strike and is spotted chained to some railings by the nefarious Deputy Prime minister David Carlton (played by Charles Dance), he is drawn into a world of seedy political intrigue, as the Chancellor tries to use Ali as a tool to destroy the Prime Minister's credibility.
This film features Baron Cohen's other character Borat in a meeting with Ali G, where a double was used for different shots.
