BRÜNO (2009) 7MATE, 10.30PM, MA15+, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

The inim­itable im­i­ta­tor, satirist and ag­i­ta­tor Sacha Baron Co­hen fol­lowed his 2006 hit Bo­rat with more of the same prej­u­dice-bait­ing hu­mour in this mer­ci­less mock­u­men­tary. The wide-eyed for­eigner with a skewed take on Amer­i­can cul­ture this time is the über-fab­u­lous, funky fash­ion­ista Brüno, de­ter­mined to be­come “the big­gest Aus­trian su­per­star since Hitler”. Ob­vi­ously, noth­ing is sa­cred to Baron Co­hen as he shocks the un­wit­ting vic­tims of his com­edy and, as with Bo­rat, the big­gest tar­get is con­ser­va­tive mid­dle Amer­ica. The jokes can run a lit­tle thin, but this sharp, snappy romp cer­tainly doesn’t out­stay its wel­come. ★★★
