Why Bruno stunk

Ok so Bruno was not the worst movie I have ever seen, in fact it was pretty funny at times. The movie stunk though because comedy needs a hero. The movies today that I find generally funny follow a trend of being predictable and corny. Long gone are the days of original edgy comedy, and Sacha Baron Cohen was always that.

The "Ali G Show" was exactly what I love about comedy. Edgy, spontaneous and original. Bruno was the complete opposite of that. Everything felt stale and staged. Though they will probably claim it wasn't staged forever, I don't buy it. I think besides a couple of scenes, everyone was in on the joke and that is lame to me.

Bruno felt like a parody of the "Ali G Show" and I don't recommend seeing it.
