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.

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.

Not just horrid by itself, this opened the floodgates for all those self-absorbed indie "relationship" comedies of the latter 1990s.
