    This modest, enormously likable film, about love and temptation and ties that bind, is about brotherhood most of all. [9 August 1995, p.C9]
  3. While other films struggle for their effects, Brothers simply lives and breathes, thoroughly likable from beginning to end.

    It's not a profound film, but it is heartfelt, and Burns has done his best to keep it clear and emotionally direct.
  7. If you want to waste a couple of hours, you can surely do much better looking elsewhere.
