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.

Disturbing

I was very disturbed, it was not funny. I did not laugh once. I was crying in horror, more than laughing. Especially at the part when Brüno was whipping his penis around. The part that is most disturbing is that it's open on Netflix for children to watch, and should instead be located on its proper habitat, a porn site. In conclusion the movie was horrifying, and disturbing. It was painful to get through. If I could give this movie zero stars I would, but the minimum is one. I do not recommend, especially for children.

Hilarious but very crude and explict

Anyone who would let their children be exposed to this shouldn't even be on this site. Its funny, but in a sarcastic and possibly offensive way. There is adult language and some minor violence, but the major concern is all the nudity and sex acts. There is full frontals of both woman and men, an explicit swingers party, explicit gay sex acts, and a violent dominatrix scene. There is also a penis which appears, and dances around for an extended period of time, then the camera zooms in on the urethra, which opens like a mouth and screams "Bruno!". In the dominatrix scene, a fully exposed woman wearing dominatrix gear rips the clothes off a man a tries to force him to have sex with her. Its played for laughs (he says things like "lets get to know each other first? and tried to get her to wear a fake beard) but the scene is very real. She proceeds to viciously whip him with a belt while yelling at him. There is no blood but he reacts with obvious pain and you can see red welts begin to develop where she hits him. The disturbing thing is this is NOT a scripted scene. The dominatrix is a porn star, who was told by the crew that "Bruno" was a virgin and that they'd pay her double if she could get him to have sex with her. Sacha marvelously manages to stay in character, but according to the behind the scenes, he was legitimately terrified as she had BROKEN HIS THUMB and he feared she was actually going to rape him. He makes an escape through the window and the scene ends with him running away. The movie is very funny, but full of shock material that should not be seen by little kids. Also, children will most likely not even get the message, or the hints behind the humor that make this movie so funny.

Why Is It R?

Sacha Baron Cohen Was Good In Borat. But Sucked In Bruno. I was having a slumber party a few weeks ago. After playing Truth Or dare, We were going to watch a few movies. I put in bruno, and about halfway though the movie, I shut it of because me and my friends were so embarrassed.

No

This movie is extremely unappropriated. It has 20 or so seconds of genitals, sex scenes and appalling racial abuse. Not very funny when the jokes are nazis, gays and babys getting crucified.

THE FUNNIEST MOVIE EVER!!!!!

Bruno is crude, rude, and offensive. One 30 second depict of a man's full penis swinging. Then when it gets erect, the urethra says "BRUNO!!!" and then the camera goes inside. Also lots of gay sex. In one part at a party it shows people having sex violently but is censored. Then he goes into a room with a woman and we see her bare (and rather large) breasts. Language isn't so bad.
