“I am going to be the biggest Austrian celebrity since Hitler.”

Let me save you $10 and a week full of cockmares; Bruno was, bar none, the most uncomfortable and ridiculous movie I have ever seen. I couldn’t fully enjoy it because it was so acutely awkward. I spent the majority of the movie with my scarf over my eyes wishing with every inch of my body that I had instead gone to see Harry Potter 6. The combination of penis overload, bondage costumes, mano a mano dildo fights and gay adoption with Middle America, Middle Eastern politics, ultimate fighting and the marines proved deadly for me. As my father so eloquently put it, Bruno makes Borat look like a family friendly Disney film.

Although the majority of the highlights were in the previews, Bruno did contain a few other gems. Most notably:

His baby OJ (allegedly, a “dick magnet”)
His Ode to Middle Eastern leaders
Buzzword: Carbicide


“Puck you, Miss.”

In serious need of good television during the summertime season drought? Rent HBO’s “Summer Heights High: Season 1” on DVD. It follows various groups of people in an Australian school, specifically the antics of Ja’mie, Jonah, & Mr. G, all created and performed by the shows writer/producer Chris Lilley.

Think Little Britain + Borat + off the cuff hilariousness. Easily the best thing out of Down Under since Hugh Jackman.

“Which one are you Donnie?” “I ain’t any one of them.” “That is such a Samantha thing to say.”

Bruno debuts July 10th, and it promises to be a solid follow up to Borat: vulgar, shocking, and f*cking hilarious. Sacha Baron Cohen has begun to make his nontraditional media rounds, and I see it paying off. Between his MTV Movie Awards appearance and his GQ cover, I’d say he has a (naked) leg up on the competition. Aniston, eat your heart out.
