Sibling Rivalry to the Extreme
7 January 2013 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

Two brothers (Mark Kelly and Steve Zissis) compete in their own private 25-event Olympics.

What is the point of this film? I am not sure -- the struggle of two brothers, a special kind of love, the dissolution of a marriage (a theme explored in "Jeff Who Lives at Home")... which is the point? Are any of these the point?

I did not get a deeper meaning out of this film, so if there is one it passed me by and will have to wait for a second viewing. But I definitely appreciated the humor, and the competition, and the morality (or lack thereof) of it all. And I also appreciate that, unlike "Jeff", this film does not rely on big name actors and still gets the story out just as well. It may suffer some publicity, but those who watch it will not be let down.
