Meal & Reel - "Bruno" - Roseville AMC - 2:30 p.m. - LaCasita at 5:30 p.m.

We will be meeting at the theater lobby at 2:30 for a 3:10 showing of "Bruno," Sacha Baron Cohen's latest movie based on one of his characters. If you enjoyed "Borat," then you already know about this movie and can't wait to see it.

From a review by David Edelstein from New York Magazine:

"Is Brüno riotous? Yes, more so than Borat, in which Baron Cohen’s targets were ducks in a barrel and largely undeserving of ridicule. He doesn’t aim much higher here, but his tricks are more inventive and his butts—so to speak—more defended. The movie centers on a doomed quest: After being “schwarz-listed” in the European fashion industry, the flaming, childishly oblivious Austrian exhibitionist flies to Hollywood, determined to become a movie star. The people he appalls with his idiocy and, well, gayness are ostensibly not in on the joke—although you can’t always be sure. To get the most out of Brüno, you have to suspend disbelief and regard the movie as a hard-R-rated Candid Camera, to accept that, pace Eminem, the celebrities and ordinary folk Baron Cohen punks are being driven to actual sputtering rages."

After the movie, we'll be headed to LaCasita for some Mexican food. You are free to go to which ever part of the meal and reel suits you best, or go to both to make an evening out of it. Please leave a note in your comments if you are going to dinner so we can get a good count to tell the restaurant.

I hope to see you there!

    Event good; movie mediocre. Had to leave before the dinner outing, alas.

    Still sorting out my thoughts about the movie. The company was great, though, with lively conversation at dinner.

    The movie was horrible, but I know that some in the group enjoyed it. Dinner was great -- everyone could sit together at one table. That alone produced a good tone for the dinner.

    I won't be back from my mom's birthday thing. Unless I hurry. But everybody knows I'm lazy.
