“Pygmy Sex Scene”

The Sun‘s Gordon Smart has posted the first-anywhere (I think) review of Sacha Baron Cohen‘s Bruno (Universal, 7.10). There are any number of tumescent shock pull-quotes but let’s go with this one for starters: “To say Bruno makes uncomfortable viewing is an understatement of Battle of Britain proportions.

“When I wasn’t giggling like a 14-year-old, I was cowering behind my hands. And I wasn’t just hiding from the acres of kugelsack, Bruno’s word for the lunchbox, shown during the 90 minutes.The term will become the new ‘Booyakasha’ or ‘Jagshemash.’

“Bruno has only been in love twice. Once for just seven minutes with ’80s pop act Milli Vanilli and the second time with his pygmy boyfriend who dumps him when he loses his TV show. And here lies a warning — the pygmy sex scene is one of the most horrific incidents ever committed to celluloid.

“I’m talking fire extinguishers, champagne bottles and mechanically adapted fitness equipment. Teenage boys should under no circumstances watch this with their parents.

“Just like with Ali G and Borat, Sacha-as-Bruno tricks famous faces into doing ridiculous interviews.” The duped include singers Paula Abdul and Latoya Jackson, “who both leave within minutes after being served sushi on a naked Mexican.

“Bruno decides to become heterosexual ‘like Tom Cruise, John Travolta and Kevin Sacey.’ And an interview with a pastor, who specializes in turning gay men straight, is priceless.

“A Jerry Springer-style talk show scene in Dallas, when Bruno has his ‘adopted’ African baby confiscated, will go down [as one of] Baron Cohen’s…three best scenes.

“The character does lose a bit of steam towards the end but the musical climax, with cameos from Chris Martin, Bono, Sir Elton John and Snoop Dogg is a fitting finale.”

    this will be hysterical. just like borat. but I doubt it’ll be as big of a hit.

    By far my most anticipated movie along with Public Enemies. Borat is a classic. But this one I think will trump it in every way. I’ve seen the trailer five times already in packed houses and it always kills. Can’t wait.

    He had me at molesting Ron Paul.

    I think the man is a genius and I laughed like crazy the one time I saw Borat but I just dunno about this one.

    Duping Paula Abdul sounds like fish in a barrel, for one.

    I’ll give him this – dude must have had to undergo some thorough and regular full-body waxing for role. That’s commitment.

    I think this sounds absolutely brilliant. Another film based on shock value, but homosexuality is a great topic for that, as so many people are still not 100% OK with it. I love the look and the silliness, this is going to be outstanding!

    gay sex with pygmies is so ’89. We were all doing it while waiting in line for Batman.

    Bruno is just a nostalgia trip.

    This is nothing more than a gay minstreal act. If this was about a white man, with a black face, playing up the worst stereotypes of african-americans, it would be ripped to shreads as racist. But when it comes to gays, it’s open season, and worst of all, with people saying this is exposing homophobia. Newsflash: You can do it, by talking to people. Not present an image that confirms the worst fears from the anti-gay crowd, while making a fool of yourself.

    Who cares? These guys should not take everything serious, hetero sex jokes are totally normal, why should gay sex jokes be something bad? But thats just my personal pov..
