Because of a bad marriage of their parents, two brothers Jules (Daniel Arends) and Max (Tim Haars) made a pact never to get into a relationship with a woman. Therefore, they live a party-life in which they sleep with a different girl every day. However this changes when Jules starts to date Anna (Sylvia Hoeks) and Max falls in love with her. Can their bromance overcome this love triangle. Although the makers of this movie claim this movie is a romcom, it still has the same adolescent humour we are accustomed to with Steffen en Flip.Written by
The name of this movie should be spelled "Bros Before Hos" in proper English, but is often seen as "Bro's Before Ho's", probably as a result of applying Dutch spelling and pronunciation rules to an English title (the form without apostrophes might look confusing to Dutch people). The official movie poster gets around this problem by showing the S in a smaller font. See more »
When Steffen Haars and Flip Van Der Kuil made their first "New Kids" shorts and the feature film, their humour was refreshingly in your face. Every character they wrote was rude and violent, every joke was completely over the top, it was beautiful unstructured chaos acted in a genius deadpan style. It was also something I had just never seen before. After three movies however, I'm sort of wondering if they can do anything else. "Bros Before Hoes" doesn't technically have the same characters of "New Kids" and its sequel, but that doesn't stop them from making the exact same movie again. Now apparently it's a romantic comedy, but who cares, it's just the same jokes they've done to death in their earlier works. People puke, smoke crack, do anal, watch porn, beat each other up for no reason, take their cocks out in public, sexually assault the mentally handicapped, that used to be hilarious but the surprise effect is completely gone now. This is clearly not what the directors want, because generic gross-out seems to be all they have left now to keep the audience interested. There's one great moment though: there's a scene where the main character meets his dad and the part is genuinely emotional and funny at the same time. It's a brilliantly written and acted scene in a sea of mediocrity. It almost makes me hopeful for the directors' next feature (almost).
