The Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best Reviews

Diego Costa
Slant Magazine

Do we really need another film about underachieving white men with scruffy beards? Ryan O'Nan thinks so.

An indie about-tell me if this sounds familiar-a brokenhearted sad sack who travels cross-country with a weirdo and a too-hot-for-these-dorks woman on a road trip of healing and self-actualization.

It's sweet in places, but too similar to every other eccentric film about a going-nowhere artist hiding his inner brilliance under passive-aggressive annoyingness.

Inner child? Open road? No, this film is actually about Mr. O'Nan and his wan, scruffy innocence.

O' Nan needs to retool and get some new material.

Offering little more than flat karaoke versions of Sundance-style hits, this is strictly an amateur-hour affair.

Good fun, but O'Nan doesn't take this film nearly as far as it could go, leaving the plot and its characters somewhat two-dimensional in their obvious stereotyping.

It's just a shame about the script, which follows such a prescribed track of Alexander Payne-ish road-trippery that nothing really rings true.

It gets nowhere slowly.

While the movie itself is an uneven, sometimes preachy affair, it's alive with possibilities whenever [Weston's] on screen.

This ode to indie legitimacy proves to be too cartoonish to feel real and not outrageous enough to be memorable ...

O'Nan deciphers in comical yet solemn ways, young characters representing warring sides of himself. While doing battle with joblessness, alienation, working stiff drudgery, and existential redemption through art and the imagination.

Initially, this low-budget film writes a lot of checks on the First National Bank of Whimsy, but I was astonished when none of them bounced.

It may have some flaws but The Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best is still the kind of underdog movie you want to clasp to your heart. It is an unexpected charmer.

Shared Darkness

An offbeat, hipster-inflected road movie that steadfastly refuses to conform to expectation and sense. A to-scale victory of quirky charm and feeling over sagacity.

A likably goofy, lo-fi indie propelled by the syncopations of a cheesy keyboard - and the cheesy dreams of its hapless heroes.

[A] highly likeable buddy movie.

Guardian

The comedy is at odds, perhaps even at war, with the gravitational downward pull of bittersweet seriousness, and the sucrose content is pretty high by the end. But it's an entertaining film.
