Critic Reviews

  1. A politically incorrect but often hilarious jam session, in which men and women trade insults like musical licks.

    The movie's a mixed bag, but worth seeing for the good stuff, which is a lesson in how productive it can be to allow characters to say what they might actually say.

    The pace is fast, many of the performers are attractive, and even the end-credits montage is zippier than usual.
  4. 70
    A lively, affectionate and well-acted romantic comedy, takes a raunchy look at relationships from the black male perspective.

    A feeling man's buddy story that's user-friendly to men and women alike.

    What saves the film is the charm and earthy humor the actors wring from the spectacle of these four guys getting an early jump on their midlife crises.

    Overall, The Brothers is glossy fun, but it should have given us more ideas and energy.
