March 22, 2001
If you want to take down Waiting to Exhale, you'd better have a stronger grip on men and women and how they connect or fail to connect than this.
March 22, 2001
It's regurgitating pop psychology ideas that are unlikely to be surprising to anyone sitting in the audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
March 20, 2001
A shallow comedy with few insights and only sporadic laughs.
March 21, 2001
A mixed-message piece of sexist propaganda masquerading as a movie about sensitive guys, masquerading in turn as a movie for guys.

March 20, 2001
Stuffed with the most obvious points imaginable.
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 23, 2001
For romantic comedy, it is not particularly romantic or funny.
March 23, 2001
The Brothers is basically a Lifetime movie that somehow found its way into theaters.
March 23, 2001
Had the film taken more of an edgy and irreverent approach - along the lines of one character's titular response, Breathe, Bitch to Waiting to Exhale -- it may have been more interesting and far more amusing and perhaps even insightful.

It isn't much of a movie.

March 22, 2001
As close as these men say they are, the film makes it very difficult to believe they are friends.
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
It seems as though the entire budget of this movie was spent on expensive set decoration.
March 23, 2001
Ultimately, The Brothers ends on a very girlie note.
March 23, 2001
Films such as The Best Man and The Wood have gone over this terrain before, with considerably more style and humor.
March 23, 2001
It's time for filmmakers to take a deep breath ... and come up with a new approach.

March 23, 2001
Airless and oddly fatiguing.
March 29, 2001
Has all the emotional depth and honesty of a Ford ad, only with worse production values.
