Quickies: Deleted “Bruno” Scene Is Uncomfortable & Psychic To Contact Michael Jackson

  • The above clip is an “exclusive” deleted scene from the “Bruno” DVD. Things get really uncomfortable when baseball legend Pete Rose is forced to sit on a landscaper. [Maxim] — I’m so ashamed to admit I laughed. I had no plans of seeing any of this movie in my lifetime.
  • It’s no surprise movies don’t necessarily contain the most accurate depictions of actual life, but when it comes to sex, some of the depictions are plain myths. [College Candy] — Yeah, I’ve never ripped the sheet off the bed to run to the loo post-coitus.
  • The five most inappropriate situations to Twitter include attending church hungover and going to a great aunt’s funeral. See what other events shouldn’t be tweeted. [College Humor]

Why Are So Many Celebs Doing Interviews In Character?

What’s the deal with actors doing interviews in character? Not that I’m complaining, because I find it generally hilarious, but why are we seeing so much of this lately? A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of seeing Mark-Paul Gosselar reviving the teen-tastic role of Zack Morris on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” Then, of course, the past two weeks have been filled with Sacha Baron Cohen as Bruno taking over every talk show ever. And this week we’ve come across the latest issue of Wired in which Brad Pitt talks as his character from “Inglourious Basterds.” As much as I’ve enjoyed these interviews, I feel a bit like the celebs are cheating me and every tabloid lover out of learning their juicy personal details. Do you agree, or do you like these interview stunts? Keep reading »

Why Are Penises Always Funny In Movies?

After seeing “Bruno,” one of my male friends went on a 5-minute rant about how penises in movies are always played for laughs. In his opinion, the nudity law of cinema is that when a woman’s naked, it’s completely serious or titillating, but when a peen pops up on screen, it’s meant to be hilarious. He repeatedly asked the question—why? Keep reading »

The Inspiration Board: Bruno

Okay so not everyone loves Bruno (or even likes him), but you have to give him props both for his insane newfound mainstream popularity and willingness to make ridiculously bold fashion choices. He’s inspired us to live in a world of spandex, fur, sequins, and hot pants … all at once. Despite steadfastly refusing to take the subtle route, the beauty of Bruno is that he demonstrates that when it comes to taking style risks, confidence is everything. Keep reading »

How Sacha Baron Cohen Keeps From Getting Sued

On Friday night, I went to see “Bruno.” I laughed. (Hardest at the part where Bruno goes camping with a bunch of rednecks and, as they sit around the campfire, he asks them which “Sex and the City” character they are.) I cried. (When Bruno’s velcro suit caused chaos at a fashion show, and he’s shunned by the entire Austrian fashion community.) I squirmed uncomfortably in my seat. (When a mom agrees that her 4-year-old would have liposuction in order to land a modeling gig. And again when Bruno crashes a swinger’s party and is repeatedly whipped by a woman with nipple rings. Now that I think about it, at least 40% of the scenes in the movie were squirm-worthy.) But as I left the theater, one big question kept running through my mind—how does Sacha Baron Cohen get away with these stunts without getting sued a hundred times a day? Keep reading »

Barbara Walters Gives “Bruno” Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Down

Barbara Walters is having a very educational week. Sexually, we mean. Last week Margaret Cho visited “The View” and gave Barbara a lesson on the G-spot. Then, over the weekend, Barbara saw “Bruno” and learned more than she cared to about anal and giving oral sex. I saw “Bruno” this weekend as well and was shocked to see a man in his, I swear, 90′s, sitting front row and center. I was concerned he would have a heart attack. Anyhoo, check out Babs’ disgust in the clip above. [via Jezebel] Keep reading »

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 »
