    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    You'll hoot and holler as it strips down its targets and sticks it to them, hardcore. Baron Cohen is the pure, untamed id of movie comedy. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The bad outweighs the good and the cringes outnumber the laughs in Brüno, a disappointment from Sacha Baron Cohen, whose "Borat" was one of the funniest movies of the decade. show more

    Brüno offers more shock value for your moviegoing dollar than any other movie this year. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Here’s the bad news: Brüno is no "Borat." Here’s the worse news: Brüno crosses the line, like a besotted sprinter, from hilariously to genuinely awful. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    A crude, cringe-worthy, and intermittently funny affair that triggers the gag reflex. I sincerely can't tell you whether I was choking with laughter or keeping from choking. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Packed with filthy jokes, insane sight gags, and body parts used in decidedly uncommon ways, Brüno is hands-down the dirtiest R-rated movie you'll see this year. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Bruno is only intermittently funny and all too often the "ambushes" of celebrities and civilians look staged. The movie is even a tad -- dare we say it? -- tedious. show more

    Bob Mondello NPR

    Director Larry Charles has made Bruno a tighter, better-looking film than "Borat," which is not necessarily a good thing on those occasions when you suspect it of scripting rather than just observing. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A no-holds-barred comedy permitting several holds I had not dreamed of. The needle on my internal Laugh Meter went haywire, bouncing among hilarity, appreciation, shock, admiration, disgust, disbelief and appalled incredulity. show more

    TV Guide

    With Bruno, Baron Cohen essentially turns a carnival mirror on society, and some people simply aren't going to like what they see. This is satire at its most confrontational and incisive. show more

    Not as good as watching Borat the first time but funny. It's worth renting.

    An artless shock film with better than average production values. It's like having someone tell a really tasteless joke, and not understanding that it is time to get over it and move on.

    Oh brother! What is wrong with all of you uptight naysayers? I saw this movie with three other women - young and old - and a theatre full of other people who were just falling off their chairs laughing. We were screaming and crying and unable to breathe, we were laughing so hard! I can't wait for it to be released to video so I can own a copy. If you have a slightly perverted sense of humor and are ready to be offended a little to laugh a lot, see this movie!

    This movie is homophobic sophmoric drivel. How it gets billed as sophistocated and biting political satire is beyond me. Don't waste your time an money on this loser --- and don't support the people who market this unadulterated crap!

    Too me it wasn't as gross as people said, I can handle it. Plus I'm only 11 1/2. Wow... I some adults can't handle it, but a little kid can. Well, I have seen these kind of movies since I was one years old...but this is still a little gross. So anyways it's not as good as I thought.
