Trailer Park: “Bruno,” “I Love You Beth Cooper,” And “Humpday”

Maybe it’s because I haven’t seen another human being in five days, but I’m really enthusiastically excited about the movies coming out this week. They all share a certain theme, which happens to be my favorite: awkwardness! First, “Brüno” gets audiences all blushy by showing his waxed man body (and balls, apparently?). Then a nerd goes for the cheerleader (shocker) in “I Love You, Beth Cooper.” And finally, two men take bromance to the next level in “Humpday.” Bye! I’ll be at the movies with my new friends, butter and slushy. Keep reading »

We See (Not Just) Chick Flicks: Bruno

The Lowdown: Watching the feature film “Bruno” is somewhat like eating a whole bag of candy corn. There is a sugar rush high and momentary feeling of elation and giddiness, but all too soon you feel sick and crash. The experience is not awful and you come out no worse for the wear, but it’s not something you are likely to try again in the near future. Walking out of the theatre in a zombie-like trance from the sheer amount of material that was thrown at me from beginning to end, I couldn’t form a statement more coherent than “wow.” “Bruno” is neither a great movie nor a horrific one. I am sure it falls somewhere between good and meh, but the movie’s predominant characteristic is its sheer recklessness and audacity. Keep reading »

Sacha Baron Cohen On The Late Show. Swoon.

Yes, we’ve done a lot of posts about “Bruno” in the past two days. No, we’re not planning on stopping anytime soon. The other night, Sacha Baron Cohen went on “The Late Show With David Letterman” as…(gasp)…himself. He describes getting an interview with an actual terrorist for the movie. Any chance he’ll divorce Isla Fisher and marry me? Keep reading »

Reactions From Viewers At The Opening Night Of “Bruno”

Sacha Baron Cohen has never been known as one to tread lightly on delicate issues such as race, religion or sexuality, and the newly released “Bruno” proves no exception. Playing Bruno, a dopey gay Austrian fashion commentator and overall clown, Cohen faces (or more accurately flings himself and awkwardly tackles) controversy on all fronts. Knowing that reactions to the highly anticipated film would be strong, we at The Frisky decided to stay up late and attend the opening night midnight showing and get firsthand reactions from audience members. Staying up was easy, but recovering from our shock and regaining the ability to speak after the barrage of awkward and uncomfortable comedy was another matter entirely. What people thought of the movie, after the jump. Keep reading »

Bruno Vows To Be Bigger Than Heidi Montag

Sacha Baron Cohen sat down for an interview with Matt Lauer on “The Today Show” this morning, only, as expected, he did it as “Bruno.” Awkwardly hilarious from the get-go. Keep reading »

Who Is The Real Bruno?

In four short days, “Bruno” will be unleashed upon innocent moviegoers in the US. Judging from Sacha Baron Cohen’s nakie GQ cover and increasingly hilarious premiere ensembles, this mockumentary is going to blow “Borat” out of zee vater. But is Sacha Baron Cohen’s most outrageous character yet based on a real-life Bruno? In Austria, people’s lederhosen are in a bunch trying to figure out who could be the model. We pit the two lucky Austrian front-runners against each other for the ultimate title of “the real Bruno.” You decide who is zee real deal. Keep reading »
