EARLY BUZZ: Bruno Gets Its First Review...
So after last nights Paris premiere of Bruno, the first review has been released. The review comes to us from the British paper, The Sun, and along with other things, it mentions that "Hitler gets a mention every five minutes", and that “the pygmy sex scene is one of the most horrific incidents ever committed to celluloid.”
Here's just a snippet from the full review, which can be read here...
“To say Brüno makes uncomfortable viewing is an understatement of Battle of Britain proportions. When I wasn’t giggling like a 14-year-old, I was cowering behind my hands.” … “The character does lose a bit of steam towards the end but the musical climax … is a fitting finale.”
(Thanks to /Film for the heads up)
On a non-review note, the twittoshpere has had a few 140 character reviews posted, with the biggest one coming from the BBC's Jonathan Ross, who tweeted...
“Was very funny. Not as funny as Borat, but funny.”
What do you think of this news? I personally like the fact that it's pushing the limits, even more so than Borat, because if there is one thing I really enjoyed, was how ballsy Borat was. Sure, it's not a good movie, but it does show the awful side of America, and I hope this can kind of push the envelope even more. Plus that trailer is f***ing hilarious.
Go see something good!
