Critic Reviews for The Brothers McMullen
It's easy to see what attracted Redford to Burns' first film. Burns' dialogue is natural and witty. Burns films with the gritty immediacy of a documentary, slipping a boom mic above backyard conversations over beers.
It's the sprightly profane dialogue, the dirty talk of the brothers about love and religion, that gives this otherwise old-fashioned comedy (imitative of Woody Allen) a modern feel and winsome drive, keeping it from getting stale.
Burns' first (and still best) effort.
A good Movie of the Week. Engaging, a bit soapy, but with real circumstance & intelligent/plausable chat. However, tidies up too neatly in the end.
One of the best films of the 90's
Very relatable for Irish Catholics like me.
Audience Reviews for The Brothers McMullen
Alright, but overrated.
A great writing debut for Burns. Nice dialogue. The banana scene is definitley memorable, bookbat. I wonder if the older folks get, the more sobering this movie might become. I'd love to see more from Jennifer Jostyn and Maxine Bahns.
