    There are some gay people down in Oz, who think Bruno the movie should never of been made, because you have a straight man, taking off a queenie man, a flamer; oh please.

    I myself can't wait to see it. I'm sure I may wet myself laughing, and am even able to laugh at myself.

    Now how many gay men have made fun of straight men? Yet lose their humor if it's turned onto the gay community.

    Will you go and see it?

    I did not see that.

    But it is your right not to go and see it.

    But I think it may be a hit.

    As for borat, one of the things that made me laugh, was when he was at a Southern dinner party, and he handed his bag of shit to the hostess, and then had a prostitute rock up, and when he interviewed the feminist, pissed myself laughing.

    Why not? Plenty of straight people play stereotypical gay roles for fun in movies.

    Heck, when gay men do these kind of caricatures we call it 'camp' and have no problems with it. So why the heck not. I enjoyed Borat, I think I'll enjoy this too. So yeah, I'd watch it.

    Sascha Cohen knowingly satirizes public perception. You can't cure stupid anyway. If people choose to believe all gay people are actually like that, then they really are stupid.

    You know it's happened to me about twice. I've had people find out I'm a homosexual, and were shocked I did not act all camp, or seem to be a wanna be girl, as they thought all gay men acted that way

    But then their interaction with homosexuals had been very limited, and the Bruno's are the ones that stick out in a crowd, and stay in peoples minds.

    Also even in the movies, if someone is portraying a homosexual in a movie, they are normally a Bruno kind of guy. So in a way, it's easy for people who have not been exposed to many homosexuals, too think all gay men act like Bruno.

    But non the less, I'm longing to see the movie. I think it will be a hoot, a scream.

    Now when someone is acting like a flamer, we can coin the phrase" doing a Bruno" when someone is acting all gay.

    Matey why do you have 2 similar threads competing with themselves?

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/575945/

    Though I haven't seen the movie yet, I am thinking hoping that Sasha is going to turn the stereotype on it's ears. I am thinking Bruno may be the gay movements new best friend. Hope I am not wrong.

    I think it ought to be funny. I plan on seeing it.

    I hope what this movie does is expose all the horrible anti-gay sentiment and show how horrible some people are. I hope that it pushes gay rights forward, and I think this comedy might do it.

    I watched a bit of Borat the other day and it was alright, but I definitely will be seeing Bruno. Maybe people will realize they wish they had a Bruno in their lives... or realize we're not really as much as him.

    Well chase the chickens out of the yard, I actually agree with patticakes on this one, to a degree. I'm not sure Cohen is "making fun of" stereotypical gay men or the stereotype or the stereotypers. I suppose that's what constitutes his genius. The star of his story is a flamboyant gay man, and it's a mainstream movie made by a very popular comedian. I think this may never have happened before. If I'm to follow Cohen's comedic message, he's making fun of the stereotypers. I mean, is he supporting antisemitism when he lampoons the running of the jew? I don't think so. From the trailer ads, what I can see is he is additionally poking fun at popular culture, even if some of it is old (OJ, Madonna). I do hope to see more religion bashing when I see the movie. I can't wait to see this.

    I never liked his show, never saw Borat and never saw Ali G.

    Don't think I'll see this one either.

    Why would any self-respecting gay man pay good money to see this? Two steps back, much?

    meh

    The great thing about Bruno was it was upstaged by Michael Jackson's death, so it kind of failed........as it should.

    Good for you... It is a comedy... dark, but still a comedy... you are right.. you'll wet your pants... bisides we shoud't get upset for all movies that make fun of us.. we need to relax a little... besides.. what so funny is about is to see how sterotypes of us are seen by others... I think the movie atacks more bigots, than gays... icon_biggrin.gif

    K. I finally watched it tonight. Almost snorted up an ice cube a couple of times.

    The austrian gay sex scene at the beginning must have been a great day of filming icon_lol.gif

    Sasha Baron Cohen is too convincing in this role - that´s why it´s not funny...
