Storyline

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. Written by Huggo

Hilariöus...Ovër Thë Töp...Sööö Brüno !
7 July 2009 | by (Luxembourg) – See all my reviews

I just saw Brüno, and was not disappointed ! Sacha Baron Cohen delivers what he does best as he tricks people into believing his character is a real person. Brüno is dumb, annoying, shocking, and he exaggerates to points probably not closely reached in Borat.

Clearly, if you loved or simply enjoyed the humor of Borat, chances are great that some scenes will get you close to die laughing. While the storyline is thinner than in Borat (which hadn't the biggest scenario in movie history), it's enough to attach scenes after scenes(interviews or sketches) to it and create laughs after laughs.

Hilarious is the word which defines the best Brüno, and this movie deserved the clapping that the audience gave it at the end.

To sum it up, Cohen ends his character trilogy, and sends Brüno to retirement with a BÏG B Ä N G !
