Sacha Baron Cohen‘s latest venture, Bruno, is one of the most anticipated summer movies but an NC-17 rating is taking the film back to the chopping room. The character of Bruno is a gay Austrian fashion reporter who loves to make heteros uncomfortable and expose their bigotry and stereotypes.
The NC-17 rating comes as a result of raunchy sex scenes, and was given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) after an initial screening.
The movie is not likely to keep the extra dirty scenes, as the studio does not want to limit the audience with a NC-17 rating. At least it should make for great DVD extras!
Watch one of Bruno’s skits above, and let me know if you plan on watching the movie, out on July 10.
