I don’t know if you’ve heard anything about this “Bruno” movie, but it opens today. Following a tireless promotional tour and very good early reviews, (70 percent on rottentomatoes, Roger Ebert said, “Here is a film that is 82 minutes long and doesn’t contain 30 boring seconds”) a better than expected midnight run last night has projections moved up to a potential 50 million dollar opening weekend, according to Dateline Hollywood. That would be close to top 5 all time for a comedy.
After saying all that, I may not go see this. The story of a gorgeous man who is shunned because of his hot body and daring outfits hits a little to close to home. Watching someone else suffer like I have would cut deep, like a knife right into my heart.
