3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Baron Cohen is the pure, untamed id of movie comedy....The hilarity is stratospherically hilarious, producing gags that pull you up short."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (07/09/2009)
3 stars out of 5 -- "It's gross, offensive and puerile in equal measure -- but it is impossible not to laugh while you wince and recoil."
Box Office - Richard Mowe (06/26/2009)
"Undeniably funny, outrageous and boundary-pushing...further documentation of Sacha Baron Cohen's sheer nerve..."
Variety - Todd McCarthy (06/26/2009)
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] no-holds-barred comedy....Here is a film that is 82 minutes long and doesn't contain 30 boring seconds."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (07/09/2009)
3 stars out of 5 -- "BRUNO is funny, filthy and lands a few sharp punches....The writing is tight..."
Total Film - Andy Lowe (07/06/2009)
"[A] crazier, funnier, and even pricklier pincushion of a movie than BORAT....BRUNO ends on a note of scandalously funny out-and-proud triumph..." -- Grade: A-
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (07/17/2009)
"Like a wayward love child of Lenny Bruce and the Three Stooges, Bruno is an idiot savant of penetration -- breaking through borders, boundaries and anything that resembles good taste on his way to whipping up as much cultural anarchy as he can."
Los Angeles Times - Betsy Sharkey (07/09/2009)
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]he shock factor is undeniable....You'll cringe and watch through splayed fingers, but mostly you'll laugh."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (07/10/2009)
"BRUNO brings an exhilarating element of danger back to comedy....[Cohen's] retained the power to shock, offend, provoke, unsettle, and most importantly, entertain a jaded, desensitized public."
A.V. Club - Nathan Rabin (07/09/2009)
"It's an exercise in offensiveness, an exploration of over-the-topness and a gleeful working of both sides of the street, with sporadic frolics in the gutter."
Wall Street Journal (07/10/2009)
"[Q]uite funny....A succession of skits, gags, episodes and stunts..."
Movieline - Zinat S. (07/09/2009)
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "There are a ton of laughs....Cohen puts himself in ridiculous and sometimes life-threatening situations without breaking character..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's definitely the squirm-inducing moments when he scores."
Uncut - Michael Bonner (07/24/2009)
