Review of film: “BRUNO” – The free-wheeling, purposely-crude routines are often Disappointing

Review of film:   BRUNO   The free-wheeling, purposely-crude routines are often DISAPPOINTING =

The ads make it clear SASHA BARON COHEN as “Bruno” is playing a swishy GAY character— but it implies it’s based on his being a fashion-designer. There are some scenes of that at the beginning, but it’s almost a thin “EXCUSE” for his generic identity wherein he works almost OVERLY hard (pardon the pun) to be as sexually crude as he thinks he can get away with…
 Most of the movie is a series of attempts to “PUNK” numerous people with ridiculous hard-to-believe propositions, and he amazingly succeeds with PAULA ABDUL & a number of other almost-oblivious, overly “accepting” people. Some of the seemingly-real routines are really FUNNY…
 But, far outnumbering the somewhat CLEVER “commentaries” on sexual & other prejudices, there are a bunch of OUTRAGEOUS but repeatedly OVERDONE sexual acts that seemed designed more to appall & get a “sensationalist” aura for the movie than even trying to be comical or witty. Far too much wasn't funny: I found it to be more Shock SCHLOCK than anything special.
