Serves him right. I haven't seen Bruno, and amn't really bothered if I'm honest. I've gone completely off this one trick pony. He is sublimely arrogant and I'm sick of the sight of him.

your link did not work for me

I saw 'Bruno' and I thought it was obscene, perhaps for the first time ever I am in a position to commiserate with a Kazakh

Nah, i like him.
Yeas, Bruno was somewhat obscene even for me, but it was funny still.
True, however, Cohen should be more careful with people's lives. Make an agreement after the shooting, but before the film's release.
Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new?
it hath been already of old time, which was before us.

Bruno was utter garbage.  The only bit I found funny was the end before he started making out with his assistant.  The rest of it was just either boring, unoriginal or cringe worthy.

Ali G, the original serial programme on C4 was great.  Borat was worth a watch.

Regarding this case, what he's done is dispicable and I hope he loses this case.

I was a bit 'meh' over the whole Romanian villager thing, but this here deserves to have a line drawn across. Imagine if some local businessman in your community was called a terrorist in front of millions of people on national TV? Its an outright disgrace and he deserves to feel the full weight of the law. Comedians are not above basic decency.

Indeed, and the fact he played/took advantage of what he perceived as the Palestinian's ignorance as mitigation against this gross lible illustrates the greed and depravity of the man.

I'm with both of you on this one. There was a passive lobby of people harping on about 'not getting it' when I and other people claimed to be genuinely insulted and disgusted by Bruno/Cohen, but they missed the point: It is not about 'getting it' or 'not getting it', the film crossed boundaries that have been upheld for a reason, and he has not inherent right to cross them.

I'm a fan of Cohen even though Bruno was not the best he has made. I expected that he would be sued but i guess that before making those movies he has a contract for full legal backup from FOX.

Finally some justice. Not only do I hope he loses, I hope someone makes a seedy mockumentary about his trial.
