BRUNO (Larry Charles, 2009)

BRU_Teaser1-Sheet_14F (Page 1)

Even with a flamboyant character (and a gifted actor at the helm), the movie didn’t quite reach the comedic heights of Borat. The movie brutally poked fun at the seemingly faux glitz of the entertainment and fashion industry leaving nobody unscathed (and yes, the list included Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Kevin Spacey).

As expected, no issues were considered taboo including, but not limited to, homosexuality, religion, and racial discrimination. Unfortunately, most of the jokes seemed to be for shock value rather than played for genuine laughs.
