critics consensus

Often seen as a Waiting to Exhale with men, The Brothers is amiable. However, it feels superficial and somewhat of a retread. Read critic reviews

Lifelong friends banded together to weather love's innate terrors and occasional triumphs in this brazenly comic yet painfully true exploration of the battle between the sexes. Amidst the career track, basketball and bar hopping, "The Brothers" love women -- as many as possible -- but a shocking revelation tests their friendship.

Audience Reviews for The Brothers

  • Apr 24, 2009
    I don't think you'll see movies like this anymore--a film about black brotherhood and the trials of their lives (especially love lives). The market so far is flooded with "he ain't no good" films by Tyler Perry (and sometimes diamond in the rough films) or gangster films full of violence and an absence of positive black female characters. This film was like a black male version of the Sex and the City, obviously made for female viewers. It was entertaining and endearing during its time though feels dated watching it now. If it came on television again years later, I can't say I wouldn't sit down for a dose of nostalgia though.

    I happened across this on TV, and it was interesting enough to watch to the end. There is something about a movie where four good friends get together every so often to play basketball and figure out what is going on with their relationships.
