Watching Sacha Baron Cohen disguised as a camp Austrian fashion guru, the viewer can snort with laughter, gawp in disbelief at the rudeness,marvel at the star's physicalcomedy and death defying bravery ... and still end up being disappointed that it wasn'tdone better. The reasonis, simply, that it was donebetter, three years ago,when it was called Borat.Brüno copies Boratalmost scene for scene,repeating a once-winningformula without thefreshness or inspiration.
