I'm sorry, but this movie is brilliant. What better way to expose the shallowness, intolerance, and ignorance of our society than via a gay, foreign fashionazi who wants to be famous? It's as good as holding up a giant mirror.
The Ron Paul scene alone is priceless - here's a guy who, less than a year ago, was begging America to let him represent all Americans. And he can't handle one gay proposition with anything resembling grace. He completely lost his shit. Would he have freaked if a beautiful young woman took off her pants? Doubt it. It would have been, "No thank you, dear. I think this meeting is over." And then he would go along on his paranoid, racist way.
Bruno also tackles ex-gay ministers, a pair of vapid "charity PR consultants", exploitation talk shows, and the gayest activity in America - wrestling. Pure genius. Offensive, crude, possibly dangerous for the camera crew and Baron Cohen himself, but genius.
