Star Cinema Review of Bruno

brunoBruno Rated: R Running time: 1 hour 23 minutes 2 stars out of 4 Sasha Baron Cohen as Borat was brilliant for severeal reasons.  First of all, it was kind of like Candid Camera on steroids.  It was funny to watch everyday people react to this rather unusual man from another country.  It was fun to watch people try to be polite as Borat did so many innapproaitate things.  However, Cohen's latest character seems to miss the mark.  I did enjoy watching Bruno as one of the three characters on Da Ali G show on HBO.  But for some reason, it doesn't work as well as a full length movie. It almost seems like Cohen is trying too hard to create a shocking scene and it is forced.  It was genius when Borat went to the bathroom in someone's house and then brought his "droppings" out in a plastic bag.  It was so unbelievably awkward and funny.   In this movie, Cohen tries to shock people with outrageous homosexual acts.  People are offended, but would be just as offended if they were outrageous hetrosexual acts.  It just doesn't seem as clever as Borat. Borat seemed like a real experiment on human nature.  Will people spend time in a rather uncomfortable situation because cameras are rolling?  In Bruno it seems like all Cohen is trying to do is offend as many people as possible. I still love your work Mr. Cohen and you are a brilliant comedian, but in this case you've already been there and done that. You can see Bruno at Star Cinema. Click here for showtimes.

Most expensive dishes from around the world. ~Stevi
I never thought I would see the day where chocolate pudding showed up on a list of most expensive dishes. I feel like someone should contact Bill Cosby about this. More outrageiously priced food here; be ready to pick your jaw off the floor. ~Stevi
