Vulgar, offensif and fucking hilarious. Three words that can properly sum up my feelings towards Sasha Baren Cohen's new comedy once again based on his shortlived HBO series Da Ali G Show. Now being an Ali G fan I can honestly tell you that Bruno was my least favorite character.

The story follos the adventures of Bruno, a gay Austrian fashion reporter who gets fired for an incident involving a velcro suit. With no job, Bruno decides to hit the USA to become a star.

You've got to admire the fact that no matter how ridiculous he gets, he always stays in character. The biggest beef I have with the movie is that there really wasn't a lot of real situations.

Was Bruno better then Borat? No. Was it a good comedy? Yes. If you miss Borat and will settle for the next best thing then grab a friend and go see Bruno its an injoyable ride. For my final rating, I'l give Bruno a...
