Bruno is directed by Larry Charles, and it stars Sacha Baron Cohen in a mockumentary comedy film about a gay Austrian fashion journalist that was fired from his own television show, and Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen) has an idea that to be famous, he wants to be an actor. I've been wanting to see this after watching Borat, which I thought was funny, but not as highly praised worthy as I thought was going to be. It took such a long time to actually get in hold of this movie, and it was because DirecTV was showing this in one of the channels. So when I managed to watch this, I can say that in my opinion, Bruno is better than Borat. Sacha Baron Cohen does a fantastic job of looking and acting so much different as Bruno from Borat that I can totally see the people that Bruno talks to be completely fooled by him. The humor in this is hysterical to watch, and is more offensive and outrageous than Borat, but never was the point where it was doing it just because. The movie has a lot of insights of the fashion aspect and being gay as it's interesting to see that, and it definitely was during the time where being gay wasn't quite ok from the majority of the people. I was surprised at how graphic this is, and it shows how fearless Sacha Baron Cohen is when saying and doing a lot of stuff that is way out there that is definitely not for everybody. There were times where I was shocked, but always laughing when it does go to the extreme. The only issue I have with this is that by the end of it, it starts to make me laugh less. Bruno is a really great film that I'll watch this over Borat, even though it has to be by myself as it'll be very awkward watching this with people.

Normally films involving several stunts would be considered life threatening to make, but Bruno put himself in such extreme situations, you wonder how he came out alive. Visiting terrorist bases, being racist to audiences of African Americans, and emphasising his gay extremes amongst the most homophobic of people are just a few of the scenes in this incredibly humorous movie. It's politically incorrect throughout, but somehow being so wrong makes it right and you are entertained throughout. It's just a such a shame that as people are aware of his character, he wouldn't be able to produce a sequel anymore :(

Works well enough, but it ain't no Borat.

That DVD was found in a dvd player I bought used. Crude mockumentary for sure with a lot of known people either playing along or getting had by Sacha. We get to see a lot of reactions to homer-sexual like behavior or innuendoes. It's incredible how some people can put up with lots of outrageous things. The cherry in this, and we see quickly why the ring was surrounded by high barbed wired fence, is the phoney fight that turns almost homer-sexual porno. The hetero crowd was in shock, and rightly so! Haha! Surprising no one was punching him in the face. Must be the cameras... The film is sometimes hilarious and sometimes pukative and I can hardly imagine how the pukative bits could actually be turns on for some people. No wonder that was illegal!

To daft. Not very silly and to stupid

Quite ludicrous and maybe only Sacha understands it, or just the special type of fan would.

There is absolutely nothing funny about this movie. How can a team that scored in every way with Borat, miss in every possible way with this follow-up. The innuendos, the comedic timing, the social pertinence that made Borat such a classic are all missing here. How can such a winning formula turn into something awkward at very best, and at its worst (which is most of the time), tasteless and insensitive.

Good funny movie by the creator of borat but this time it's Bruno. I loved borat , the first movie, Bruno is much crazier than borat but borat is funnier. Bruno is still a good movie but it doesn't live up to the original. One thing that I like better than borat is its crazier as fudge, I love that aspect of this movie.

It's very funny and does its job as a comedy to make you laugh, but it's extremely crude and disgusting and somewhat offensive content make this a three-star film. If they took out all the nasty scenes and nudity, this would be a better movie.

"Bruno" has its funny laughs, but this movie is just outrageous and at parts, unwatchable.

Cowen's third character-based movie deals with the Austrian homosexual fashionista Bruno. Like Borat, some of it depends on your personal taste threshold. Having said that, it wasn't as controversial as the aforementioned

It's not funny, it's just being gross to be gross, and Cohen should have known better than to constantly show us his dick instead of actually making us laugh. Want my advice? Keep that thing in your pants an take it out only for your wife since she seems to be the only who can look at it without puking.

I hate this film couldn't even finish it.
