Because Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno movie highlights gay life and contains gay sex scenes, it has been banned in Malaysia.

Too gay for Malaysia: Bruno

An official from Malaysia's Film Censorship Board - who declined to be named - says the film is considered unacceptable in the Muslim country because of its story line, offensive language, jokes and racy nature. "It's contrary to our culture," the spokewoman said.

The Ukraine also banned the film back in July, saying it "could harm public morals."
