Look Out America, Borat Was Just the Beginning…

Three years ago, the ever antagonistic Sacha Baron Cohen struck comedic and, quite frankly, literal gold with the offensively brilliant Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan. The film stirred controversy. Many Arab nations banned it, various people featured in it sued its creators, but overall, United States audiences and critics alike loved it. It debuted at number one its opening weekend, and after g-reat success, Cohen found himself nominated for an ever coveted Oscar for Best Writing, Adapted Screenplay.

And so what next for Cohen? Enter Bruno. Well, more formerly, Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt. According to thebrunomovie.com, on its first submission to the Motion Picture Association of America, the film received the infamous NC-17 rating. Universal says that the ratings board has found  numerous sexual scenes to be over the line. Hmm, who knew a movie that features dildos in its preview would be full of sexual situations? Anyway, as major studios rarely release NC-17 films (umm, Showgirls anyone?), Cohen is appealing the decision. The film is currently to hit screens this summer.

Get ready, America. Looks like this guy was just getting started.
