Brüno (Bruno) - Sasha Baron Cohen, Gustaf Hammarsten, Clifford Bañagale, Larry Charles
Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities
Like its wildly successful predecessor, Borat, Brüno is a mockumentary that captures outrageous interaction between a larger-than-life character and the unsuspecting public. In the making of the movie, Brüno (Sacha Baron Cohen) infamously crashed Milan Fashion Week and the American Military before duping singer Paula Abdul, presidential candidate Ron Paul and a room of outraged rednecks in the Mid-West.
Just this week Brüno made a spectacular aerial entrance at the MTV Movie Awards calling himself the ‘Dove of peace' before a wardrobe malfunction saw him ‘fall' face-down onto Eminem, who stormed out. His antics have been captured virally over the past 18 months, making Brüno one of the most anticipated movie releases of the year.

Outrageous! If you like The Chaser's War on Everything then you'll love Brüno (Bruno). Cast your mind back to the sick children and go from there. I spent most of the movie hiding behind my hands trying not to hurt myself. How does Sasha Baron Cohen think this shit up? As for how he gets away with it, the answer is that he doesn't (as you will see in the film). He takes larrikinism right to the edge and the Seppos can't handle it. It's awesome.
The comedy movie Brüno (Bruno) is directed by Dan Mazer and stars Sasha Baron Cohen, Gustaf Hammarsten, Clifford Bañagale.
