In the tradition of Sacha Baron Cohen's last film, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, Brüno looks like another movie that will launch a thousand lawsuits. The film, which comes out in theaters July 10th, follows Cohen's excessively trendy Austrian fashion journalist character as he mercilessly crashes Milan fashion week (there's a scene in which he falls onto a runway wearing a Velcro suit covered in garments from backstage) and frolics about the Midwest wearing various torso-baring getups (he shops at Sears in a mesh top and shiny green pants). The film is so risque that it merits an NC-17 rating.
