Critics Shocked To Discover “Bruno” Ambushes Look Staged

A three year old could see this from the previews, and we all should have learned that from “Borat.”  Believing “Bruno” is a true reality experiment is almost as naive as believing “The Hills” is unscripted … almost.

Now I don’t have a problem with a fictional movie that is filmed in a reality style, but don’t proclaim a script to be reality.  Face it … “Borat” was largely scripted, and so to will be “Bruno.”  I’m still not 100% sure all the lawsuits aren’t a part of the official publicity campaign, and are themselves scripted.

Nonetheless … some are shocked.

“Bruno” is only intermittently funny and all too often the “ambushes” of celebrities and civilians look staged. The movie is even a tad — dare we say it? — tedious.
