Consensus: Crude and offensive, but with ample cultural insights and gut-busting laughs, Bruno is another outlandish and entertaining mockumentary from Sacha Baron Cohen.

It's certainly not that there aren't a few funny moments in the film. There are, but overwhelmingly, Bruno's stunts are demeaning, they are insulting and they are really cruel.

Sacha Baron Cohen's latest shock comedy Bruno is a nasty, tired and pointless retread of the gifted comedian's previous work.

There are lots of moments in this movie that are genuinely funny.

There's good bad taste and then there's just plain bad bad, which is what describes most of Brüno.

if mixed martial arts fans who view the film are forever after afraid of fighters getting aroused during a ground-and-pound session on the mat, then Baron Cohen did the job right.

Moderately entertaining, and marginally clever. Kinda panders to the worst in us.
