Brüno is a gay Austrian fashion guru. He has his own fashion based television show, Funkyzeit, the most popular German-language show of its kind outside of Germany. After he disgraces himself in front of his Funkyzeit fan base, he is ruined in German speaking Europe. He decides that in his quest for worldwide fame, he will move to Los Angeles and reinvent himself. Accompanying him to the US is Lutz, his former assistant's assistant. Lutz is the only person left in his circle that still believes in Brüno's greatness. Brüno goes through one reinvention of himself after another, ultimately straying to areas far removed from his own self. Perhaps when Brüno finds an activity that he truly does love, he will also find that über-fame he so desperately desires.

Writers: Sacha Baron Cohen, Anthony Hines

Did You Know?


Originally got a NC-17 rating from the MPAA, but after Sacha Baron Cohen re-edited it it received an R.


In the diner scene where Bruno commits "carbicide" the exterior light goes from night to day then back to night.


Elton John:
War's just based on hate and fear / Stop fighting, North and South Korea.

You're both basically Chinese.

Chris Martin:
He's Brüno, dove of peace.

Snoop Dogg:
Hey, yo Brüno, where the bitches at?

User Review

Outrageous fun

Rating: 9/10

I was lucky enough to win tickets to the premiere and spent the entire
movie alternating between HUGE belly laughs and covering my eyes in
disbelief. If you didn't like Borat, you are unlikely to enjoy this one
either as there is a lot of nudity (including one memorable shot of a
talking…. body part), profanity and taking the mickey out of: a)
rednecks b) fashionistas c) F-list celebrities (and a few A-listers
too; remember, children are not an accessory. Unless they're cute. Or
match your outfit.) d) terrorists (yes, really, don't know how Sasha
got out of that one alive)

I loved the movie and although some of the scenes worked better than
others, for sheer inventiveness, audacity and brilliant ad-lib comedy,
Baron Cohen remains at the top of his game.
