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
I liked it, but then again I like when people push the envelope. His films are like a social experiement, putting people in uncomfortable situations & see how they react. Some of the nudity went a little overboard, but it wouldn't be Sacha if it didn't.
"Bruno" is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. There are too many hilarious, off-the-wall moments in this film to count. It's sad that "Bruno" got such a bad rap. People who hated this movie undoubtedly saw the warnings about graphic nudity, etc. and went expecting to see graphic and full frontal female nudity. How disappointing it must have been when they realized this movie contains one or two shots of full frontal nudity and those are of a male. Americans can't handle male full frontal nudity. Can we say "hypocrites." And there's not much nudity at all. Seriously, don't read the negative reviews for all the reasons I've listed above. Give this movie a chance and watch it. If you can get past the first 15 or so minutes (which are boring and lame) you will find that "Bruno" is truly imaginative and wicked funny! .
