  1. The movie is a toxic dart aimed at the spangly new heart of American hypocrisy: our fake-tolerant, fake-charitable, fake-liberated-yet-still madly-closeted fame culture.

    Cohen no longer has freshness and novelty on his side, but he’s retained the power to shock, offend, provoke, unsettle, and most importantly, entertain a jaded, desensitized public.

    The real genius, if that is what it is, behind Sacha Baron Cohen's crude, shocking and explosively funny Brüno is the fact that the filmmakers actually found enough gullible human targets.

    The problem with shock comedy is that it works in its purest form only the first time. Where do you go after you've gone too far? No artist can get heads to swivel and stomachs to turn indefinitely.
  5. Brüno is likely to be the funniest thing you'll see on a screen this summer. Which is precisely its problem: it's a thing , not a movie – if, that is, you believe a movie should be more than an accumulation of prankish set-pieces flimsily strung over 80 skimpy minutes.
  6. There's good bad taste and then there's just plain bad bad, which is what describes most of Brüno.
  7. Here’s the bad news: Brüno is no "Borat." Here’s the worse news: Brüno crosses the line, like a besotted sprinter, from hilariously to genuinely awful.

    Cohen shows us just how stupid modern Western culture really is.

    Here is my theory: - Most modern women find the movie really hilarious - Men with rational/open mind find the movie hilarious. Following Here is my theory: - Most modern women find the movie really hilarious - Men with rational/open mind find the movie hilarious. Following crowd are likely going to detest the movie: - Men with rigid mindset of female nudity - Men who cannot imagine fragility of masculinity. I am as straight man as you can get, and I am here to tell you that the movie is totally comic, and I do not remember laughing so hard for another movie. I enjoyed this movie better than Borat. FWIW, I would never watch a love story -- be it Titanic or Brokeback Mountain. Expand

    This was kind of a big let down. There were some funny moments, but there were a lot of uncomfortable parts and the movie felt like a drag. This was kind of a big let down.

    This was possibly the worst movie I have ever seen - there may have been one funny moment, but I don't recall it.
