"You'll hoot and holler as it strips down its targets and sticks it to them, hardcore. Baron Cohen is the pure, untamed id of movie comedy."--Rolling Stone
"The movie is a toxic dart aimed at the spangly new heart of American hypocrisy..."--Entertainment Weekly
"The needle on my internal Laugh Meter went haywire, bouncing among hilarity, appreciation, shock, admiration, disgust, disbelief and appalled incredulity."--Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
As Bruno travels the world in search of fame, no one, whether they are celebrities, politicians, or even terrorists, will be spared from his signature sense of style and his wickedly off-kilter manner. And, yes, they are all real situations. Prepare yourself for non-stop laughs and outright gasps when you experience the unforgettable antics of Bruno.

Not as funny as Borat, but there was some good laughs in this movie.

Wow. Having not seen Borat for almost a decade, this is my first somewhat grown-up introduction to Sacha Baron Cohen. I don't give Bruno four stars because I think what he's doing is really nasty and perhaps the same point could be made in better ways. However, there is a level of brilliance and incredible skill here that makes for quite the spectacle. Note that this all hinges on the fact that most of his "co-stars" are unsuspecting, but this is not a fact that I doubt. As an aspiring revolutionary (lol), I hope Sacha uses (or continues to use) his talent to bring about real positive change in the world

Almost exactly like Borat, which is to say, filthy lowbrow humor done very intelligently (and hilariously). There are pangs of guilt at laughing at the humiliation of people who might not be all that bad, but thus are the perils of signing a waiver in an attempt to get on TV I guess.

The very bitter message in the movie is that if you're gay, stay the heck out of the US. There's nothing for you in America but incredible pain. Unfortunately, Sacha Baron Cohen seems to know whereof he speaks. When he screams "MY BABY!" I don't understand why anyone thinks this is a comedy?

Incredibly unfortunate. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Sacha Baron Cohen should have stopped at Borat. It didn't even deserve a star. What a waste of time.

It's funny, I guess! It all depends on your sense of humor. I laughed out loud most of the movie, but there were scenes that were outrageous -I'm not a prude or anything like that BTW!- One thing I didn't like was the plot. It's the same plot from the movie Borat. But, overall, a laugh-out-loud movie.

Garbage in my opinion. Not that I'm surprised so many people like this genre. We live in a world of increasingly pre-packaged material tapping into our human voyeristic curiosities (the mainstream news is a prime example). The approach clearly sells more toothpaste and makes folks like Sacha rich. I'm sorry, but for this viewer there are enough "trainwrecks" in everyday life without voluntarily watching the mainstream "news" or this DVD to experience even more. I turned it off after ten minutes: my time on this planet is worth more than that.
