Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno Gets an NC-17 Rating

Parents are going to have to be present when teens under 17 want to go see Sacha Baron Cohen’s new movie.

Bruno has just been slapped with an NC-17 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America. We totally saw this coming after the infamous naked scene in Borat, and figured he could only get raunchier from there!

The association reportedly chose to give it NC-17 because of the numerous sexual scenes that they believe is over the line.

To bring you up to speed on the upcoming film, Cohen plays Bruno, a gay Australian fashion reporter who is full of surprises, and always drawing unsuspecting people into ridiculous situations.

Sacha did a couple of screenings of the film recently to see how it was going over with audiences, and was very pleased with the outcome.

Audiences saw 20 minutes of the movie at the South by SouthWest festival this month. In one scene, Bruno auditions children for a movie with a number of offensive acts.

Stage moms agree to insane requests made by Bruno, including one woman admitting that her infant daughter could lose seven pounds in a week to fit the part. Who else could ever get away with doing that?!

A person close to the film says, “Sacha is always redrawing the boundaries where you don’t expect them. It forces us to question our own discomfort when we are confronted with images that challenge our preconceptions about sexuality.”

See for yourself, when Bruno comes out in theaters July 10th!
