Movie News | By on Oct 19th, 2009

Brüno didn’t do as well as Borat, which is a shame because it was a hilarious movie. I don’t know if the movie was good as Borat, but definitely had me laughing and hiding my face in my hands. The DVD and Blu-Ray will be out November 17th, just in time for the whole family to watch during Thanksgiving dinner!

Here’s the press release:

OVERVIEW: The inimitable prankster Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) launches another inspired comedy offensive in the boisterous Brüno, coming to Blu-Ray™ Hi-Def and DVD on November 17, 2009 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.

As in the hugely popular Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen once again creates improvised pandemonium, this time as an Austrian TV host searching for fame and fortune in America, ensnaring everyone he meets in hilariously unpredictable, unscripted and unsuspecting ways.

Featuring an hour of exclusive footage of deleted scenes not shown in theaters and a revealing commentary by Sasha Baron Cohen & director Larry Charles about how some of the film’s unbelievably funny pranks were achieved, Brüno has been hailed even “Funnier than Borat” by Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly and “Uber-hilarity!” by Claudia Puig, USA Today. Hilarious, irreverent, shocking and entertaining, Brüno is the most talked-about comedy of the year.

BONUS FEATURES EXCLUSIVE TO BLU-RAY™ HI-DEF:

* Exclusive Video Commentary with Sacha Baron Cohen and Director Larry Charles
* BD-LIVE — Allows viewers to connect to the Internet and access new and exciting exclusive online and interactive features, including My Scenes Sharing and My Chat.

SYNOPSIS: Sacha Baron Cohen (the creator and star of Borat) returns to the big screen in the hilarious adventures of Austria’s favorite fashionista, Brüno. In this gleefully anarchic mockumentary, the flamboyant television host loses his homeland talk show, “Funkyzeit,” and does what any self-respecting wannabe would do—he moves to Hollywood to pursue worldwide super-stardom. From worlds of fashion and entertainment to the military, Brüno puts his worst foot forward as Baron Cohen fearlessly tramples the boundaries of good taste in ways that confound celebrities and just plain folks alike. Fans of Baron Cohen’s gonzo comedy can look forward to an hour’s worth of hysterical scenes not shown in theaters on both the DVD and Blu-ray versions.
