      I can still recall sitting in a packed cinema in 2006. Laughing uncontrollably at the hilarious antics of actor Sacha Baron Cohen’s infamous character Borat. So naturally I had hopes for Cohen’s new movie centred on gay Austrian model Bruno.

      The opening scenes of Bruno shocked me. Yes, Borat had its fair share of nudity but the nude scenes in the first 30 minutes of Bruno bordered on pornographic. Countless times the audience was subjected to images of Borat and his male lover engaging in the most indecent of acts. Yes acts even more horrifying then those between Borat and his naked


      obese friend in the hotel elevator and lobby. I personally found nothing funny about the first thirty minutes of Bruno and judging by the silence in the cinema my opinion was shared by many. It seems as if Cohen had forgotten that obscenity does not always equal humour.

      Thankfully the movie soon improved after the initial 30 minutes. Although the film itself is quite short at only 83 minutes. One of the funniest scenes takes place when Bruno visits the Middle East and tries to bridge the gap between the two opposing leaders of Hamas and Palestine. It’s safe to say that ...


      • Bruno succeeded to a degree as both leaders could agree on something, that they didn’t like him. I was in a fit of hysterics when Bruno got the two leaders to hold hands while he danced between them.

        It’s safe to say that Bruno cannot be placed in the same league as Borat. A great deal of what made Borat funny was not Borat himself but the things he got unsuspecting everyday Americans to say and do. In Bruno however I got the impression that many of the so called everyday people were actually paid actors. Or at least I hope they

        are paid actors. In one scene Bruno interviews parents who want their young children and toddlers to appear in commercials. One mother stated that she would condone her toddler having plastic surgery to appear in the commercial.

        At the end of the day if you are looking for a comedy, an evening out with friends and a few laughs then by all means go and see Bruno. While it’s no Borat, Bruno definitely has a few scenes that are guaranteed to make you laugh. Oh, and if you happen to be a little bit late. Say 30 minutes or so you won’t miss anything.
