Hilarious Comedy, But Not For the Faint of Heart

I decided to write a review on here about this film because pretty much all of the reviews on here are making this film out to sound like it's a full on porno. While there is lots of sexually suggestive stuff in the movie, it's usually blurred out by black boxes and they're all done for laughs. The film's humor is very stereotype based and it's not for the easily offended. The movie is more cringe than funny, for example, Bruno, a gay male, tries to seduce Ron Paul (an extremely conservative & homophobic politician). Is it as good as Borat, absolutely not. Not even close. Is it funny. Yes. Is it porn, no.

This title has:

Too much sex
