The movie is a toxic dart aimed at the spangly new heart of American hypocrisy: our fake-tolerant, fake-charitable,...

Rolling Stone

You'll hoot and holler as it strips down its targets and sticks it to them, hardcore. Baron Cohen is the pure, untamed id of movie comedy.

Brüno offers more shock value for your moviegoing dollar than any other movie this year.

Packed with filthy jokes, insane sight gags, and body parts used in decidedly uncommon ways, Brüno is hands-down the dirtiest R-rated movie...

Director Larry Charles has made Bruno a tighter, better-looking film than "Borat," which is not necessarily a good thing on those occasions...

A crude, cringe-worthy, and intermittently funny affair that triggers the gag reflex. I sincerely can't tell you whether I was choking with...

Brüno is what "Borat’" was too well-done to be: a publicity stunt about publicity stunts.

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

The bad outweighs the good and the cringes outnumber the laughs in Brüno, a disappointment from Sacha Baron Cohen, whose "Borat" was one of...

Here’s the bad news: Brüno is no "Borat." Here’s the worse news: Brüno crosses the line, like a besotted sprinter, from hilariously to...

BRUNO - VASSUP???!!! Rating: 55 out of 100. (Based on an actual advance press screening)

Recently, I attended the advance press preview of this 88-minute gross shock-fest of a 'movie'. Yes, it took me awhile before I could come to grips with writing this critique/review because I was...

Okay, obviously we have some extremely sensitive people here.... Of COURSE it is offensive, of COURSE SBC takes it too far. That is the beauty of his comedy. He DOES NOT CARE. Borat was fantastic....

Better Than Borat

By dizzlecakes
I went to a press screening for this film a couple weeks ago, and cannot believe it has a "So-So" rating here on Fandango. It was outrageously funny, and not just because of the physical comedy of...

Don't be so dramatic, people.

By ktlivesatregal
Point blank: this movie is hilarious. Never once did I stop laughing. Whether from the sheer stupidity of SBC's actions as the fabulous Bruno or because of the fashionista's infamous jokes,...

Granted, rating movies you haven't seen...

By JoeBobsFineFoods lame. But rating movies you haven't seen as "OH NO!" and telling everyone else you object to it is REALLY lame. Get a life. Or at least a sense of humor....

My Opinion

I just got back from the first midnight showing of Bruno. I don't want to be that guy to bash a movie, but let me tell you, it was completely terrible. And I love movies, I try my best to watch new...

Unfortunately This Film is Not Funny

By JayShaman
It is almost 90 minutes of "in your face" gay anal sex. I used to love Sasha Baron Cohen but I wanted to take a shower after seeing this film. It should be rated NC 17. No responsible parent should...

Bruno ist WUNDERBAR!!

By Ammo720
You've most likely seen Borat, SBC's first outrageous flick... now imagine that only more offensive. Although this film has hilarious scenes with unimaginable acts of homosexuality and real life...
