A Very Funny Micro-Budget Comedy
27 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just stumbled on this out of the blue and found it very well done and laugh-out-loud funny in many parts. The two brothers are so utterly clueless they cannot help but charm you. The ultra low budget is visible at times and the camera work is a bit weak, but the movie has lots of heart and laughs to make up for it. All in all, a far better film than many big budget Hollywood comedies which have utterly no heart and soul. Bros. has soul and then some. I was reminded at times of the Joseph Minion-scripted and Martin Scorsese-directed "After Hours," which had the same spirit of manic frenzy to it. Hope to see lots more from writer/director Figg.
