Sacha Baron Cohen's fashion world mockery Brüno premiered last night in London, and today, the reviews are in. From what we've read so far, the film sounds incredible. The Sun: "Just like with Ali G and Borat, Sacha as Brüno tricks famous faces into doing ridiculous interviews. This includes singers PAULA ABDUL and LATOYA JACKSON, who both leave within minutes after being served sushi on a naked Mexican." There's also mention made of a "horrific" pygmy sex scene. It does not sound like a family film. [Sun UK via The Awl; Previously]
