Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Baron Cohen's instincts for outrage are spot on. It's not insight we need at all right now, but a very sharp bonk on the head.
Fresh: Cohen has come up with some marvelous satirical motifs; elsewhere, he's just showing how far he'll go to get a laugh.
Fresh: When moments seem like setups with actors, they turn tame. But when things feel real -- as when Bruno conronts an Arkansas wrestling-match crowd -- they can get scary-real.
Rotten: Wholly unsuitable for children, yet propelled by a nagging puerility that will appeal only to those in the vortex of puberty, or to adults who have failed to progress beyond it.
Possibly the worst movie of all time.
There may not be words bad enough in the English language, nor Sacha Baron Cohen's, to articulate how truly awful this film is. The humor comes cheap, even by over commercialized hollywood standards. With no message to the madness, the film abandons any small ounce of credibility that the filmmaker earned with Borat. It truly sheds light on his previous works as accidental touches on intelligence, and not farces on modern political societies. I would say that Sacha went Hollywood, but now I'm not sure he was ever that creatively high, and I wouldn't even want to drag Hollywood down to the level of this film.
Most hilarious movie ever!
Bruno is a very funny film, unfortunately you have people that don't have a sense of humor.
The Funniest Movie of All Time
I have to say, I was not expecting to see what I saw on the big screen. This movie displays the most you can get away with in local movie theatres today. That being said, the movie shouldn't have been as funny as it was, having to rely solely on shock value. However, I was truly histerical while watching this. I'm very critical, too. I almost never laugh at movies, and if I do, the humor needs to be really smart. I'm a huge Seinfeld fan, and Larry Charles actually directed this movie. If you're unfamiliar with him, he wrote the "darker" episodes, like The Glasses. The shock value isn't really the source of the humor, though. It's how it's executed. About 90 percent of this movie is completely unscripted. Some may argue there are problems, though.
Some say that he didn't execute his "mission" very well. Let me make this clear. He at no point in the movie, or in interviews about the movie, said that he was setting out to make people think more highly of homosexuals. I am very pro-homosexuality, and I felt that Cohen did nothing wrong. I'm not actually homosexual, but if I was I would have seen nothing offensive in this mo- well, actually the nudity. (AND there is quite a lot.) My main complaint with the movie is that it was bordering on being too uncomfortable to watch. It only ended up making the movie, funnier, so it's not a problem.
This movie was all about limits...rather, about having none; because Cohen has none in this movie. This movie is like an experiment to see how far someone can go annoying the hell out of people without dying. (He does almost get killed a couple of times in the film.) Actually, that is one more problem with it. He is TOO extreme. Most homosexuals don't act that way. I know plenty, but let's not treat him like an idiot, he's aware he is acting that extreme.
That's really it about the film. I won't get specific, because I don't want to spoil the good parts. To those who hate the film, lighten up. Obviously, shock humor with amazingly clever set-ups isn't your cup of tea. (And it isn't most peoples'.) To me, though, this movie went above and beyond my expectations, so I do need to give it the credit it deserves. This is pretty cool, because the movie comes out the same day as the Them Crooked Vultures album! That's all I have to say about that...
