A disappointing movie

I remember it very well, at the time, I was going to the movies and I was actually going to see ‘State of Play’ (a movie which turned to be actually rather underwhelming as well) but when I got to the movie theater, they told me there was a mistake in their program and ‘State of Play’ wasn’t running at all at this location. Eventually, I checked what was available at the time and I ended up watching ‘Bruno’ instead. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a disappointment,  probably even the most disappointing movie I have seen which was released in 2009. I mean, I really loved 'Borat', much more than I expected so this time, I had some rather high expectations. Unfortunately, this flick never reached  the level of 'Borat' ... Indeed, there were definitely some funny scenes and the movie had some good sharp moments but the main issue in my opinion was that the lead character was just really obnoxious and it made the whole movie just painful to watch. Furthermore, whereas underneath its vulgarity, I thought that 'Borat' was actually pretty deep, this flick was just completely shallow. Still, it is far from being a bad movie and it is worth a look, especially if you are interested in Sacha Baron Cohen's work.

Compared to Borat, yeah this one's a disappointment. I felt like it tried too hard to copy what Borat did & therefore while it's funny there's nothing original about it & it's got a very been-there-done-that feel to it. It's still entertaining though.
