Brüno

Posted by martinteller on November 17, 2009

I don’t think that anything is proved by making Ron Paul justifiably uncomfortable (although it does set up an amusing “RuPaul” punchline).  On the other hand, the parents willing to risk just about anything to have their babies in a photo shoot is one of the most appalling things I’ve seen.  The movie seems to constantly vacillate between these segments that work and segments that don’t, making it more uneven than its predecessor, Borat.  It’s generally less funny as well, but maybe the difference is because I saw Borat in a theater with my best friend, and I watched Bruno alone on my couch.  It did seem like there were fewer comic moments overall, but the ones that were there were pretty good.  Rating: 6
