Synopsis


Brüno
Borat trickster Sacha Baron Cohen returns to the big screen to offer yet another stinging dose of sociopolitical satire in this comedy that finds him assuming the persona of gay fashionmonger Bruno, the self-proclaimed "voice of Austrian youth TV." Originally conceived as part of Baron Cohen's cult television series Da Ali G Show, the character of Bruno offered a cleverly costumed Baron Cohen the opportunity to highlight the absurdities of the fashion industry by interviewing unsuspecting fashion icons and other haute couture hangers-on. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Although this movie's reputation got ruined by word of mouth, if you know what Da Ali G Show was supposed to represent, or if you have a real sense of humor, then this movie is for you. They had to cut a lot of the movie to become an R rating, but all the removed scenes are in the extras. The commentary gives a full length explanation of the stunts and it exceeds to almost 2 hours. I saw it 3 times in theaters and I was counting down the days until it was released on DVD.

    Saw this movie in the theatre 2 times and laughed more the second time. The first time, my gut hurt for hours after the movie as my friends and I laughed so hard. Second time, brought friends and enjoyed their reaction. This movie is filled will over the top gay humor and will make anyone with an open sense of humor laugh throughout! Watch for the handprint on the wall in the hotel scene. belgium chocolate!

    If you liked Borat...

    Plain and simple, if you liked Borat, you're going to love Bruno. There are tons of dirty scenes (and they only black out the private parts), plenty of swearing and nudity, and can be extremely offensive. HOWEVER, if you're one of those people who can look past all that, you're going to find this movie extremely hilarious. It's one of those movies I'm almost ashamed to admit I like it.

    A little on the iffy side if you don't see 'gay' jokes as being funny. I could not stop laughing!!!! Never walk into a bar and yell "HI I'M BRÜNO". It's just a bad idea. Your Review Tips - Avoid: Profanity or spiteful remarks Obscene or distasteful content (Well, Then You Haven't Seen BRÜNO Yet.)

    Not Cohen's best work.

    Bruno was a decent movie, although I felt Borat was much better done, not to mention more tasteful. Bruno just comes off as too much and doesn't really offer the same hilarious hi jinx that it's predecessor offered.

    Not as Good As Borat

    Definitely not as good as Sacha Baron Cohen's previous movie Borat. Too over the top and in your face. The jokes and situations are on the crude/offensive side and not as clever as in Borat.

    Bruno is on par with Borat in terms of hilarity. He manages to make fun of and offend most major groups so as long as you don't take yourself too seriously then you should be able to enjoy.

    Shock and Awe

    I'm a fan of Sacha Cohen and liked what he did with Borat. But feel he missed the mark on this recent attempt at social commentary on homophobia. Prepare to be shocked and appalled.
