It's Tim Blake Nelson's character who keeps the plot from spinning out of control, because he has a natural and unforced respect for these women that he yanks his brother's chain and keeps their mission on course.

Spirited indie film that could be improved by a gifted editor.

Neither funny enough to be a comedy nor serious enough to pass for drama.

This is one case where the director would have been better off pointing his camera at real subjects. The truth, in this case, is almost sure to be stranger than the fiction.

A competently assembled yet perplexingly affectless romantic comedy.

Audience Reviews for 2 Brothers & a Bride

I really, really liked this movie. It is not a laugh out loud kind of comedy, It is a subtle, humorous look at two brothers' quest in finding a wife in another country. It was nicely done, well acted, and very charming. AND I am not a David Arquette fan by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I really liked him in this.

A favorite.

Super Reviewer

Interesting premise, so-so story. Emily Mortimer gives a fine performance and lifts the film up. Quirky, amusing and off beat enough to be entertaining.
