Simply one of the best films I have ever seen - funny, yes but that's not really the story here. This is an extremely poignant film. Two brothers who grow-up providing comical entertainment for their family embark on the road to fame and fortune, only one has the confidence / courage to progress ( Billy Crystal ). As one brother flourishes the other adopts the roles of manager. All is well as the rise to fame continues but as things turn bad another side to Billy Crystal's character is revealed. This is a film about a successful entertainer learning to deal with the abscence of an audience. It's about the love & hate between two brothers as the years go by. It's about life's choices, mistakes and regrets. This is a moving & powerful study of life, watch it!
