    Does anyone else think violence aginst gays will increase after homophobes go to see this film too??

  • Mike L.

    I’m a little perplexed by the fact that his arms and legs are disproportionately shorter compared to the trunk of his body.

    Anyone else notice that?

    And sorry for those who share those characteristics, I’m just making an observation.

  • Fitz

    @alan brickman: I agree. And I go further… it is my sincere hope that his wife and kid become the victim of a hate crime. Right in front of him. Bludgeoned into a coma, or left to die tied to a fence post.

  • Mike L.

    @alan brickman: Very likely, even though the movie concept is satire, most people in these times are too stupid to know what satire is and will miss the real point of the film.

  • Mike L.

    They will use this film as another reason to hate gays, and more stereotypes to go around.

    @alan brickman: you said “Does anyone else think violence aginst gays will increase after homophobes go to see this film too??”

    Gee, I don’t know, did violence against people from Kazachstan increase after Borat? People who want to attack gays don’t need some film to tell them to do it, a bunch of drunk townies looking to gay bash first of all are the last people who will go to see this movie, and secondly will go out, get drunk and gay bash all on their own.

    @alan brickman:
    Since no one on the site has seen the film, perhaps we can suspend judgement…

    My bet is that Cohen makes Bruno the true sympathetic character in the film, and makes the homophobes look like the idiots they are…and yes, many of them will be too stooopid to understand what morons they are, as usual… so do we need to dumb down all satire, or social-commentary inspired comedy, so that the densest amongst us can easily understand? Is Larry the Cable Guy’s “git’er done” the level of discourse we should follow in this country? (Which in itself, is a parody of blue collar/red state values, performed by an intelligent and RICH man.)

    And you know, some gay men are effeminate, and some lesbians are butch dykes, and whatever other stereotype you want to judge…and every single GLBT person deserves a voice, and to be proud of who they are…no one should have to censor themselves to “make a homophobe feel more comfortable”, or so as “not to threaten” the stoopidest/most regressive members of the population.

    I, for one, am looking forward to this movie…

    Attitude magazine is the worst “gay” magazine in the world. About 90% of the covers are of heterosexuals. It’s really a heterosexual-worship magazine.

    Yes, I do believe violence against gay people will increase after this movie is released. Heterosexuals are outsiders with prejudices against homosexuality.

  • Wiliam

    It’s intriguing how the advertising differs across the Atlantic. It seems you nice colonials get a lot of gay jokes, but here in Blighty, all the adverts I’ve seen seem to showcase the Bruno is out of touch and offensive to everyone, with one of the current ads feauturing him telling a “suspected terrorist” that “your King Osama looks like some kind of dirty wizard or homeless Santa.” Maybe it’s to do with cultural differences regarding “innapropriate behaviour”; out here, being percieved as racist or xenophobic is, socially speaking, one of the worst things you can possibly do, whereas in America, I gather, the race issue is seen as less provocative than the gay issue.

  • Erick

    Isnt the correct term fauxmosexual?

  • Brandon

    Why is he constantly using brown skinned men in his photo shoots and appearances? I dont have a prob w/ this. Im not offended or anything but I really curious as to why? Ive seen quite a few of his pics on other sites and he constantly is using black men or dark-skinned latinos. I feel like something must be going over my head. Whats up w/ that?

  • Nickadoo

    @Brandon: Although there are clearly people of color in the shot, the models behind him were likely darkened in Photoshop to make him stand out more.

  • J

    @Fitz: you are sick

  • Fitz

    @J: And you are an uncle tom. This man is going to be responsible for MORE of this kind of violence to people like (presumably) you and (presumably) your friends or partner. I stand by my comment, 100%.

  • TH

    I’m less concerned about the impact on the gays than SBC’s shameless promotion and the media’s complicity. I hope the movie tanks for this reason alone. But I tend to agree with Alan, and that it’s the homophobes, the racists and the stupid people who will come out worse for wear. The real homophobes are no more likely to see this film than LA Tool and Die (my favorite).

  • Gosh

    Um…HOW old are these people on here and why so uptight???? It is just a movie ..HAVE A DAMN SENSE OF HUMOR AMERICA. I’m always surprise at these silly comments….we sure laugh at Borat movie, right???? I didn’t hear you complain, right???
    SO enjoy the damn movie and shut up. Yes, I’m gay. Yes, I’m 29yo….YES! I have a sense of humor……..If you want change and stop homophobia then go to ur local LGBT center and volunteer….do something about it.

  • Captain Freedom (HRC doesn't speak for me)

    @Gosh: I agree. Baron Cohen is FAR from a homophobe. If anything this movie will help gay rights exponentially because it will expose the extremists Taliban like attitudes shared by many Americans towards gays and expose the Nazi-like beliefs of the South and how they want us all exterminated!

  • Jennifer

    I’m just amazed how small minded some of these comments are. For CHRISSAKES, being mainstream means getting to the point where you can appreciate that (for once) the joke is not at your expense.

    It’s a MOVIE and Cohen is on your damned side. Chill.
