I meant to write a review on this movie before but I forgot.

this movie is BRILLANT. i'm not joking, it can be very offensive but it has a purpose and its completely brillant. you just have to look at the movie from the point of view that Sacha Baren Cohen is making a point.

it is a little different than "Bruno" his original movie, this one actually has a plot where Bruno is a gay man trying to become famous in america.

there is a hilarious scene where he tries to seduce Ron Paul! and he thought it was Roo Paul and its hilarious!!

but the part that I love the most is when Bruno is interview parents for their children to be a commercial, at first he asks simple questions "we might need to pinch the baby to cry" and they said alright. then he actually asked

"she will need to loose 15 pounds, is that okay?" Bruno

"oh yeah it should be fine" Mother

"well yeah, if surgery needs to be done will you consent?" Bruno

"yeah of course, if she needs surgery she needs surgery" mother

it was a baby!! he proves such a great point against society especially with homosexuality, theres alot of scenes where you just stop and think "if these were straight people, it wouldnt matter" and it is hilarious especially when you get empathetic and you think about these poor conservative people having a fit abotu it.

he does go above and beyond his point, a little michael moore-ish but i think its entertaining, interesting and brillant.

Confessions of a Shopaholic

"With dreams of writing for a top fashion glossy, shopping addict Rebecca (Isla Fisher) begins working for a financial magazine pushed by the same publisher. But as her career skyrockets, she struggles to pay off overwhelming bills -- and manage her love life. Joan Cusack, John Goodman and Krysten Ritter co-star in this glittery rom-com based on the best-selling series of Shopaholic books by Sophie Kinsella" courtesy of netflix

I heard A LOT of praise for this movie from my friends and my sister but I didnt absolutely love it, it was just whatever to me. I mean it was very obvious, she spends too much money, she knows its wrong, she does it anyways because she needs the new gucci handbag, i think its a movie thats good for people who can relate 100% but i'm not really a shopaholic i won't shop when i don't have money i just eat out too often and by small little things. I dont buy designer brands because I don't have the money and I know I don't have the money. but, her boss is really cute. lol.

Yes Man

"Based on the comedic memoir by Danny Wallace, this film stars Jim Carrey as Carl, a man who, as an antidote to unhappiness, resolves to say "yes" to everything -- yes, everything -- that comes his way. Carl's new practice initially proves successful in lifting his spirits. But soon, he's confronted with unexpected and seemingly unbeatable challenges stemming from his unique self-imposed regime. Zooey Deschanel co-stars." courtesy of netflix

I know some people out there dont really like Jim Carrey, My Nannie being one, she gets really passionate about her hatred for him, which is funny considering how little my nannie is and how proper she is. anyways, this movie is great!! its not a normal Jim Carrey movie where he gets all crazy goofy there is one part for like 2 seconds when he drank a lot of red bull but it doesnt last long lol but Zooey Deschanel is a GREAT co-star, she so spunky i love her. but the concept of the movie is so great, just say yes to everything and you will enhance your life because you will be living your life. you can't live your life sitting at home all night watching movies. watch it. everyone.

The Ugly Truth

"In his segment called "The Ugly Truth," chauvinistic morning show commentator Mike Alexander (Gerard Butler) makes his perpetually single producer (Katherine Heigl) the subject of a series of romantic tests in order to prove his theories on relationships. But will his experiments help her find love, or is she just a hopeless case? Cheryl Hines co-stars as Mike's unflappable co-anchor in this rom-com from the team behind Legally Blonde" courtesy of netflix

I thought this movie was good, I really like Gerard Butler, the movie is very predictable becoming a pattern with Katherine Heigels movie's but her character is fun and enjoyable. I was hoping the movie would have more to come away with, kind of like he's-just-not-that-into-you since Mike is helping Katherine Heigl's character get a man, but its basically about how to pretend your someone your not and men will end up liking you. it was good though, I'd recommend it.
