Bruno: As in Borat, Sacha Baron Cohen takes the rampantly gay Bruno character around the country for a series of prankish encounters with puzzled Americans. The movie feels far less like a skewering of homophobia than an excuse to string together a series of jury-rigged sketches and encounters.

The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard: Despite a bottomless reserve of cynical, scattershot humor, this comedy is a swift-moving equal-opportunity offender about a team of used-car liquidators hired to save a dealership from bankruptcy with a blowout sale. Jeremy Piven as the chief liquidator provides much of the energy.
