When Bruno, a gay fashionista, comes to America to make his late night fashion show big. But will he make it? Will he find the fame that he wants? Will he be the biggest Austrian celebrity since Hitler?
Comedy - This is a crude, raunchy comedy filled with male and female nudity
and sexual content, both gay and straight. This is definitely aimed
at a young adult audience, and the non-stop sexual and gay content
should be of note to parents. The humor here is very raunchy and
often potentially offensive. Definitely not for prudes, and
definitely not for children.
PROFANITY: 25 F-words, 5 S-words, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Homo- and heterosexual situations with related nudity. VIOLENCE: Whippings and hits. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Some alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: A foot chase. COMEDY: Nonstop raunchy humor, verbal and physical, and often gay-themed.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Good Ultimately, Brüno does what it sets out to do: provide social commentary through the most violent of guerilla tactics, camouflaged by waves of laughter at highly 'inappropriate' comedy.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good 'Bruno' is a no-holds-barred comedy permitting several holds I had not dreamed of.
USA TodayFull Review Good Attention, recession-era entertainment buffs: Brüno offers more shock value for your moviegoing dollar than any other movie this year.

In 2006, two-time BAFTA-winning performer SACHA BARON COHEN
brought Kazakh journalist Borat Sagdiyev to the big screen in Borat: Cultural Learnings
of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. Exposing shocking
hypocrisies of Western culture, Baron Cohen, director LARRY CHARLES and their
crew used guerrilla-style filmmaking to create a worldwide comedy event that took
audiences and critics by storm. The film led to Baron Cohen's win of a Golden Globe for
Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture—Musical or Comedy and shared
Oscar® nomination for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay. By allowing audiences to
laugh and cringe at ridiculous prejudices, the team engineered a breakout hit that earned
more than $260 million at the global box-office and set a new standard of risky
They were just getting started.
Now, the creator, star, writer and producer of Borat and Da Ali G Show has
created the gutsiest, craziest and most dangerous comedy to be released in mainstream
theaters. In Brüno, Baron Cohen introduces moviegoers to the next character from his
award-winning series: a gay fashionista who is the host of the top-rated late night fashion
show in any German-speaking country…apart from Germany.
Brüno's mission? To become the biggest Austrian celebrity since Hitler. His
strategy? To crisscross the globe in the hopes of finding fame and love.
