Austrian fashionista Bruno takes America by storm.

Sasha Baron Cohen is a comedic genius.

An equal to BORAT in belly laughs, shocking moments, graphic nudity, and in peeling back the cover of America to examine its moral weaknesses, BRUNO achieves an enlightening level of humor that keeps you giggling whenever the laughs are not consistently coming. Sasha Baron Cohen is a comedic genius who has created three very flamboyant characters, who each have major behavioral problems yet speak with such a ferocious and frank manner that it holds your attention and just asks for a laugh.

I don’t want to give any details away about the screenplay and story written by Sasha Baron Cohen and specialist in public embarrassment director Larry Charles. Suffice to say you'll see things you've never seen before. What the Austrian fashionista Bruno does is not just send up popular culture, fame obsession, homophobia, and sexual orientation, he exposes people's true feelings about these things, though he does so in a very ridiculous light. In a sense, the film does not take its repercussions seriously. Literally, there are too many juicy instances to give away. BRUNO is a must-see film.
