Rather full on
14 February 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

It might be half brothers, but it doesn't do things half .. well you know where this would go. Having said that, the movie itself has a light tone to it and while it is not a masterpiece of cinema, it never set out to be one. It only set out to entertain you. And this it does and a very fine job it does too with it, thank you very much.

There are things here that are not politically correct, so if you are easily offended maybe this is not for you. It does play with stereotypes and it does have a lot of fun with it. The three main actors do give the impression they know each other for a long time or at least will stay friends a long time after the movie is done. What you can tell for certain too: They had a lot of fun making this and it does show on screen ... in a good way
