Brüno (pronounced as Bruno) is a 2009 mockumentary comedy film directed by Larry Charles. Sacha Baron Cohen, who also produced and co-wrote the movie, stars as the flamboyant gay Austrian fashion journalist Brüno. The film is the third based on characters from Da Ali G Show, following Ali G Indahouse and Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. A cut version of the film was also released, Bruno: Snipped, running two and a half minutes shorter to meet the demands of 15-17-year-old teenage viewers.

The title alone should let you know that Sacha Baron Cohen leaves no button unpushed. Bruno is about an Austrian host of a fashion TV show that ends up getting blacklisted after he's booed out of Milan Fashion Week. He moves to Los Angeles to become "the biggest Austrian superstar since Hitler." No one is safe in his quest to become a superstar- Paula Abdul, Ron Paul, stage moms, Alabama, Arkansas,  "gay reformers", MMA, models, the cast of the TV show …

 Sacha Baron Cohen first came to the attention of the world media with his brilliant character known as Borat, a Kazakhstani reporter who went to America to make a documentary about American life. Mixing real interviews that mock the prejudices of those he is interviewing with a tagged on plot to move the film along, Borat was a massively surprising success. Now with Bruno, Cohen's last character to not have his own feature film was set to become an equally successful piece but due to the success …

Liked Borat with his innocent stupidity but Bruno was thoughtless; maybe that's the point?

You have make offensiveness funny to make it work - it did in Borat but this often came across as crude and mean. Wife hated it. HATED it.

Pros: Funny, shocking, tells us a lot about ourselves     Cons: Meant to shock more than make us laugh     The Bottom Line: If Borat fought Bruno, who do you think would win?     Remember how, after Sacha Baron Cohen made Borat, people everywhere said there's no way he would ever get away with making a sequel or a similar movie like that again? Well, here we have Bruno confirming that Sacha Baron Cohen has managed to get away with it again.  &nbs …

Pros: Great Laughs and outrageous humor     Cons: Some may find it to offensive     The Bottom Line: If you do not mind outrageous humor, this is a great mix of comedy and social satire.     Life is good for Austrian fashonista Bruno (Sacha Baron Cohen). As the star of the top Austrian fashion show, he is a fixture at all of the social events and is the flamboyant highpoint of any event he graces.    That is until things …

Bruno is the third character from the Ali G Show to star in a feature film.  Bruno is an Austrian model.fashion critic who travels to America to become a star after being blackballed from the European fashion industry (he wore an all velcro outfit that proved disastrous at a fashion show).  Along with his assistant, Bruno tries to break into Hollywood by becoming an actor and later on trying to host his own reality show.  Failure after failure nearly breaks Bruno until he decides …
