Review: Brüno

Obviously, this movie rides on Borat’s coat tail (surprise sleeper hit in 2006), as it follows a similar pattern that actor/writer Sacha Baren Cohen sets out again. A warning though, f you’ve loved Borat, you may feel a bit disappointed with Brüno.
Reasons are clear, as this time, it doesn’t follow a too intricate story. Also, the mix of staged/scripted and interactions with real people seems unbalanced, while also not soliciting enough surprise responses from unknowing participants.
Yes, there are still outrageous scenes. And yes, he still knows how to show people’s ridiculous nature in his funny interview technique. And yes, he puts himself in real grave danger a few times. And yes, you will smile a few times. But no, it’s not as good as Borat.7+.
