Matt's Movie Reviews

Sacha Baron Cohen's latest shock comedy Bruno is a nasty, tired and pointless retread of the gifted comedian's previous work.

if mixed martial arts fans who view the film are forever after afraid of fighters getting aroused during a ground-and-pound session on the mat, then Baron Cohen did the job right.

A plot synopsis doesn't quite capture the visceral thrill of our hero's bizarre and shocking adventure.

Regrettable Sincerity

The only thing Cohen can do is to throw the character's sexuality in people's faces, but there are several brilliant sequences of baiting and utilizing American gay panic that really hit the satirical button.

Staged or not, Cohen still displays a fearlessness and commitment to character unparalleled in the comedy world today.

The first 45 minutes [...] might be the most concentrated bit of cinematic hilarity since Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters.

Window to the Movies

[Homophobia] deserves confrontation, but when done in the manner of the movie here, it is less enlightening than it is just plain squirmingly funny.

Combustible Celluloid

Merely a collection of supposedly shocking jokes about homosexuality and gay sex.

You can watch Bruno purely as outrageousness or you can view it while pondering where the line is - or should be - between incisive social commentary and misanthropy.

DVD Review

For all of its button-pushing, the end result is almost as superficial as its egocentric hero.

There are more consequences of his situations than there are laughs derived from them. Not everyone around here is a Howard Stern.

What "Bruno" may lack in setup innovation, character conviction or "Borat's" inherent sweetness, it makes up for by pushing things beyond points of comfort or, in some cases, personal safety. Successfully uproarious in slaying social stratification.

As outlandish as the central character is, he uncovers some biting truths that no comedy writer could invent any better.

In the end, Bruno simply isn't as funny as Borat. ... Mr. Baron Cohen is too often forcing the issue instead of letting the humor emerge organically.

Illustrates not the public's gullibility but a comic's waning sense of danger

Bruno has one crucial element Borat lacked, a satirical point of view.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Artificial e cruel quando deveria ser espontâneo e instigante, finalmente acaba cometendo um erro fatal para qualquer comédia: leva o espectador a sentir dó das "vítimas" de seu astro.

As with Borat, there are plenty of outrageous moments that will make you simultaneously laugh and squirm...
