A truly wonderful film about the life of two brothers, one a successful comedian, and the other his manager/assistant. The film spans their entire lives, from two youngsters performing in the lounge for the family to old age.
A terrific and sad story about the brothers' relationship over the years. Through the film we get a real insight into what drives the Billy Crystal character and his brother.
Written and directed by Crystal himself, the film is so touching, funny and enjoyable.
Top draw film watch it.
