DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
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.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full 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 Ebert Full Review
Very Good 'Bruno' is a no-holds-barred comedy permitting several holds I had not dreamed of.

USA Today Full Review
Good Attention, recession-era entertainment buffs: Brüno offers more shock value for your moviegoing dollar than any other movie this year.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 43 moviegoers:
CAUTION: This movie is ONLY for those who know what type of movie this is. It is NOT A MOVIE FOR EVERYONE!
TEENS:Two-thirds of both the males and females really enjoyed "Bruno." Most of the remaining third rated it average to below average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Three of the four males and females enjoyed "Bruno" very much. The fourth person rated it average.
ADULTS:As expected, the adult reviews are very mixed. Some enjoyed it very much, some thought it was average and some hated it. Actually quite a few hated it so you should be absolutely sure that you enjoy this VERY UNIQUE AND SEXUAL type of humor before seeing it.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
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 provocation.

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.
