    Just saw this film at D23 Expo. A great tribute to 2 men who have brought so much joy to so many.

    I hate watching famous people complain about their lives. They should consider themselves lucky to have had the opportunities they've had and the money that they've made. Sappy but I do like the songs a lot.

  1. This entertaining, inside-show-business documentary is greatly enhanced by the presence of the two engaging "boys" of the title -- brothers who found harmony through music and dissonance with each other.

    Engaging documentary draws on plentiful archival footage and A-list interviewees, and should lure dedicated nostalgists.

    Boys is first-rate cinema archaeology. What pushes it beyond that is the brutal honesty with which the sibling rivalry between the elder Shermans is depicted; theirs is a palpable mixture of love and disdain that led to the men not socializing with each other for more than 40 years.
