Storyline

Directed by Adam Reeves, "My Brother's Shoes" is a fish-out-of-water zany comedy that borders on fantasy and reality. Dallas, portrayed by country singer Peter Stringfellow, is a successful executive with a beautiful wife (Gretta Sosine) and a lovely home. He has dreams of having a family and leading a rich, conservative life. Austin (Jacob Ellis) is his younger gay brother who is always in trouble financially and romantically. He has dreams of winning first place in the local drag queen contest and then using the money to start a new life. Each brother thinks the other "has it so good" and wishes that they could experience what the other one's life is really like. By a strange twist of fate, they switch places. The world around them sees no difference but Dallas and Austin realize they have been switched. Now Austin must handle the office for Dallas as Dallas spends the day getting ready for the upcoming drag contest with the help of Austin's sidekick, Jackie. The hilarity reaches ...

Take a chance and watch it - I did and liked it
7 July 2017 | by simonevans-32922See all my reviews

You can be forgiven at first if the premise may seem familiar (Freaky Friday or Big fans) but this film is not about the generation gap as seen before but instead a body-switch between two brothers. Every day we hear someone else's problems which seem so easy to fix when we are not invested in their outcome and here the two brothers are forced to try just that. The film flows nicely and introduces some great side characters (like the best friend), some witty one liners (by Austin), classic film references ("Auntie Em…") and a meaningful undertone with some deep scenes along the way (Blake F.) Original soundtrack complements some funny scenes along the way. An independent film – loads of talent – lots of fun.
