The main drawback of The Brothers is one of balance.

For romantic comedy, it is not particularly romantic or funny.
March 23, 2001
It's undeniable that director-writer Gary Hardwick's The Brothers has a target demographic. But the movie's themes of family, love and friendship are universal.
March 23, 2001
Ultimately, The Brothers ends on a very girlie note.
March 23, 2001
While philosophical at times, the approach is courageous in its honesty, with solid performances across the board to back it up.
March 23, 2001
The movie's a mixed bag, but worth seeing for the good stuff, which is a lesson in how productive it can be to allow characters to say what they might actually say.

March 22, 2001
It seems as though the entire budget of this movie was spent on expensive set decoration.
March 22, 2001
Hardwick's boisterous film is enjoyably slapstick and uses laughter rather than psychological insights as therapy.
March 22, 2001
An amiable, engaging and personal film.
March 22, 2001
The egomaniacal thrust behind The Brothers is the same drive that's fueled dozens of other low-watt bar-talk flicks.
March 22, 2001
So we have a bunch of guys going about their lives and not doing anything that's all that interesting.
March 22, 2001
Digs more vibrantly into issues of trust, fear, pleasure, commitment, and camaraderie than any Hollywood feature in recent memory.
