Brüno

Having stirred up a whirlwind of amusing trouble with Borat: Cultural Learnings, Sacha Baron Cohen’s out to do it all again as Bruno. Bruno is a super-camp, gay-as-you-like Austrian fashionista, who first appeared in sketches on the Paramount Comedy Channel back in 1998, then became part of Da Ali G Show.

After being ousted from the fashion community during a high profile mishap on a Milan runway, Bruno heads to the US to try and straighten himself out.

Undeniably funny, outrageous and boundary-pushing, this further documentation of Sacha Baron Cohen's sheer nerve will draw an abundant share of "Borat" fans.

As phoney and frustrating as it is funny. Baron Cohen’s comedy-outsider schtick is slick but well and truly found out. The clothes may be new and more fabulous, but the emperor seriously needs to go shopping.

A no-holds-barred comedy permitting several holds I had not dreamed of. The needle on my internal Laugh Meter went haywire, bouncing among hilarity, appreciation, shock, admiration, disgust, disbelief and appalled incredulity.

Bruno is only intermittently funny and all too often the "ambushes" of celebrities and civilians look staged. The movie is even a tad -- dare we say it? -- tedious.

A patchy, hit-and-miss comedy with a few outrageous highs and a lot of just-okay padding, Brüno suggests that Sacha Baron Cohen's in-your-face fool routine sadly isn't working any more.

This isn't clever satire, this is a series of flat gags and a few bits of outrageousness that tries to straddle the line between insulting everyone and showing "support" - hence the tiresome is this pro-Gay or anti-gay argument. Sorry, but whatever group we belong to, we don't actually need Sacha-Cohen to validate our existence. (Sad if we do.) That leaves...

It's unadulterated garbish. Ather Borat, Cohen has stretched himself (no pun intended) too far each way. We were warned by the ticket seller, but went anyway, shouldnt have. And Bruno doesnt deserve the attention all these views give it. Eric N got it right.

I saw Borat and I laughed and really enjoyed it. As for Bruno ? I felt yuk from the opening scene of Bruno being pummeled by a mechanical dildo and it went down hill from there. The only amusing minutes was the contrived cage fighting scenes at the end of the movie and watching the Homophobes throwing up and throwing missiles at the two fags locked in...

This is very funny. Don't get hung up on whether it's true/real people or not - regardless it's short, sweet and hilarious. Jaw-droppingly shocking at times. This kind of nudity you haven't seen before. Apparently though, the final scene (at the fighting arena) this was staged by the producers.

it is certainly not worth $15 or the $16 per ticket we paid after booking fee....we watched it in a packed theatre and still the laughter was not contagious it just wasn't that funny, flicks you have this one pegged wrong, usually I agree with you but this film is a DVD ONLY title and get some mates around as you would only want to pay about $1 to watch it.

Don't think of it as a sequel. If you take it on its merits and ignore the storyline, it is hilarious. "Dolce and Gabana, hello!"

Frankly, Borat was made of racial prejudice and incest jokes so Cohen did not set the bar very high for his next "achievement". The anti-PR committee will tell us to get a sense of humour but is it really? I watched the trailer with the usual "fingers up my alley" joke. Okay that soldier is pretty stupid if he does not get the intention of the author (...)...
