In October 2006, entertainment blog website Defamer.com jokingly reported the title would be "Bruno: Delicious Journeys Through America for the Purpose of Making Heterosexual Males Visibly Uncomfortable in the Presence of a Gay Foreigner in a Mesh T-Shirt".

Originally got a NC-17 rating from the MPAA, but after Sacha Baron Cohen re-edited it it received an R.
Sacha Baron Cohen worked out, shaved all of his body hair and got his hair done in order to be Bruno.
Continuity: In the diner scene where Bruno commits "carbicide" the exterior light goes from night to day then back to night.
Continuity: In the part where Brüno and Lutz are fighting outside of the police station, after Brüno says no to Lutz, there's a gold Ford Mustang in the top left hand corner of the frame, however, after it switches to the wide angle view of Lutz walking away from Brü, the same Ford Mustang drives through the entrance of the police station and is clearly not in the same spot as it was only a few seconds before.
Continuity: In the salon when Bruno is getting his anus bleached, his hairstyle changes as the camera shots change.
In Australia, the original cut was rated R18+ by the OFLC and was subsequently edited to receive a lower MA15+ rating. According to Universal a few seconds of footage were trimmed in order to receive the new rating. In New Zealand, the film was released uncut with an R16 rating.
