The Surprising Disappointment of 'Bruno'new

Borat offended us with an ignorance so profound the ignorant found it sympathetic, inspiring them to reveal their prejudice. Bruno, on the other hand, is an archly superior fashionista nearly equal in stupidity to Borat but nowhere near as sweet.

International Incident

The true beauty of what Sacha Baron Cohen does, regardless of the character he plays, lies in his ability to strip away the veneer and get to the real.
