Low Budget - High comedy
22 June 2004 | by dahuz68See all my reviews

First of all, I should say that I am usually not a fan of what is generally known as "urban comedy". I rented Bank Brothers at the suggestion of a friend who knew of this particular film makers work saying that the film might surprise me. With no expectations and a little time to waste, I popped in the DVD and, to say the least, I was indeed surprised. Working with what was obviously a low budget, the film makers managed to produce an absolutely hilarious, well-executed bit of slap-sickish, tongue-in-cheek, gross-out comedy in the vain of Ben Stiller meets the Wayans brothers with a little Cheech and Chong thrown in for good measure. I've suggested the film to several skeptical friends who, after watching it, came to the same conclusion that I did - Bank Brothers is a seriously funny movie that is a testament to what indie film makers with a few bucks, a lotta guts and a wicked sense of humor can get on screen.

If you're ready to laugh and you don't care how, Bank Brothers is a film you just might want to check out.
