Bruce Willis "lip-synced" the harmonica in the Peter Gunn performance in the section showing Bruno with his band, "Bruno and The Bassment", a band with six bass players. The harmonica was actually played by Willis' friend, Bruce DiMattia. In fact, DiMattia played all of the harmonica heard throughout the dramatic part of the movie with Willis doing his own harmonica work only during the live concert at the end of the show. See more »
I'm really proud of the fact that Bruce Willis's musical career was such a flop that he decided to turn his concert video into a self-parodying mockumentary about how he influenced all other pop artists and how he invented Gumby. This video helped give us Hudson Hawk and is therefore worth it in every conceivable way.
This film is everything that Bohemian Rhapsody wishes it was.
Watching this on YouTube really cements the fact that you could show this to teenagers and they would absolutely believe it. It is satire done with such precision that it feels so genuine and it's all because of Bruce Willis' joyous performance.
And let's not forget the cameos from literally everyone who matters in rock music. This is such a hidden gem that has aged so well, as it's dated qualities help it feel more authentic.
It's basically rock Zelig.
Springsteen on Broadway go eat your heart out.
Bruce Will...I mean...BRUNO forever!
