The inimitable prankster Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) launches another inspired comedy offensive in the boisterous Brüno.
As in the hugely popular Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen once again creates improvised pandemonium, this time as an Austrian TV host searching for fame and fortune in America, ensnaring everyone he meets in hilariously unpredictable, unscripted and unsuspecting ways.
Sacha Baron Cohen (the creator and star of Borat) returns to the big screen in the hilarious adventures of Austria’s favorite fashionista, Brüno. In this gleefully anarchic mockumentary, the flamboyant television host loses his homeland talk show, “Funkyzeit,” and does what any self-respecting wannabe would do—he moves to Hollywood to pursue worldwide super-stardom. From worlds of fashion and entertainment to the military, Brüno puts his worst foot forward as Baron Cohen fearlessly tramples the boundaries of good taste in ways that confound celebrities and just plain folks alike. Fans of Baron Cohen’s gonzo comedy can look forward to an hour’s worth of hysterical scenes not shown in theaters on both the DVD and Blu-ray versions.
Featuring an hour of exclusive footage of deleted scenes not shown in theaters and a revealing commentary by Sasha Baron Cohen & director Larry Charles about how some of the film’s unbelievably funny pranks were achieved, Brüno has been hailed even “Funnier than Borat” by Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly and “Uber-hilarity!” by Claudia Puig, USA Today. Hilarious, irreverent, shocking and entertaining, Brüno is the most talked-about comedy of the year.
