You've seen the trailer, you've read the Bruno movie quotes.
But we've actually seen a screening of this upcoming comedy and nothing can prepare viewers for the absurdity more than a look at a few scenes from it.
Stop reading now if you wish to watch Bruno, which opens on July 10, with a clean slate. But read on if you want an early look at a few ridiculous examples of the lengths to which Bruno goes on screen:
- He conducts an interview with Texas Congressman Ron Paul. The supposed subject? Austrian economics. The end result? Bruno corners Paul, ripping off his pants and leading the Congressman to refer to Bruno as “queer” as he rushes out of the room.
- Within the first 30 seconds of the movie, viewers witness a giant "taint" on screen. (You can look that up yourself if you don't know what it is.)
- In the closing scene, Bruno mocks the charitable concern "Band Aid," as he invites singers Chris Martin, Sting, Bono, Elton John, Slash and Snoop Dog to take part in the taping of “Doves of Peace."
- When Bruno visits the Middle East and asks a member of Al Qaeda why Osama bin Laden looks like a “Dirty Wizard” and a “homeless Santa Claus.” The trip concludes with Bruno being chased down the street by blood-thirsty Hasidic Jews.
