One of the highlights of "Bruno" is an encounter between the title character and a series of abusive stage parents who have brought in their infants to interview for a shot at an on-camera appearance.
As the demands escalate into ever-more-ridiculous territory - he asks the parents if they would mind having their infants lose 10 lbs. and get liposuction or appear on a crucifix - it's hard not to laugh while simultaneously forcing back tears for the poor children who have those monstrous parents.In the end, "Bruno" simply isn't as funny as "Borat"; the belly laughs just aren't there, and the escapades seem more contrived than before.
