The brothers love for each other, instilled in them by their dying mother is very heart-warming. The acting is very good, especially that done by Vanessa Williams. Her scenes really tug at the heart as she tries to remember all the life lessons she wants to teach her son before she dies. Those were real tearjerker moments. But I still can't figure out why Tatum O'Neal made such a short appearance, never to be seen again. Her and the entire ugly club situation could have just been kept out of the movie entirely and it would not have been missed at all. It was not clear as to what happened to Isaiah and James after Isaiah kidnaps him from the mental facility. They were both too young (I think Isaiah was 10) to be on their own. What happens to Isaiah and the gansters? Does he turn over the package and he's free to go? Although I did enjoy the movie, it left me with too many questions unanswered.

Two beautiful Actresses, on the same screen and both, in one movie. Wow! They compliment one another and their profession. Academy Award winning Actress-Tatum O'Neal, makes a cameo appearance and Vanessa Williams stars, as a lonely mother of two sons, who is struggling to make ends meet and raise her boys with ethical and moral values, as well as, brotherly love devoid of the street life, crime and drugs. But then, she gets gravely ill and things, dramatically change. The older brother looks out for the younger, who is handicapped and the battle to conform too what their mother taught them verses the street life, begins. All in all, a decent movie that gives the viewing audience, entertainment and food for thought. Nina

***1/2

Isaiah Morton is a not-very-promising, aspiring standup comic who lives in Brooklyn with his developmentally disabled brother, James, whom he has been taking care of ever since the death of their mother a number of years back. Even though he is totally devoted to his younger sibling, Isaiah has recently come to resent the burden James places on his life. Desperate for money, Isaiah foolishly agrees to pull a job for a local gangster, an act that sets into motion a series of events that may well spell the end for both Isaiah and his brother.

With its somewhat meandering narrative structure, "My Brother," written and directed by Anthony Lover, may not always feel as fully formed or thought-out as we would like our movies to be, but its heart is definitely in the right place and it does an effective job exploring the complications and complexities inherent in human relationships. In fact, it may well be this LACK of sophistication and slickness that makes the movie feel less contrived and more convincing in the long run. For instance, Isaiah's brief flirtation with a white woman he meets at a party is intriguing precisely because it doesn't in any way enhance the story or advance the plot. It simply feels like a scene ripped from his life, a nice piece of reality tossed into the mix to make the movie more authentic.

Moreover, there are earnest, heartfelt performances by Nashawn Kearse ("Desperate Housewives"), Vanessa Williams, Christopher Scott, Rodney Henry, Donovan Jennings and even Oscar-winner Tatum O'Neal in key roles.

Great movie! I loved it! My sister and I watched it together. We laughed, tears ran down, and we smiled. There was alot of emotions going on. I am happy to add this movie to my collection. You will not regret it if you did the same.

I tend to rent movies that aren't real mainstream. Such was the case with My Brother. The storyline was good but the plotting was very poor to me. There were alot of things left out in this movie and it took forever to get to the "meat" of who Vanessa Williams' was. Tatum O'Neals character could have been left out of the film completely as it served no real purpose. Some of it was unbelievable, but the message was there that they were two brothers and one soul. So when one looks at this film for the message, it delivers - but I wouldn't be in rush to watch it again or run out and purchase it. With just a little more "storyline" it would have been an amazing film.

This movie was a pleasant surprise. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was surprised it was not shown in movie theaters. The acting was superb. It is the type of movie that enters one's heart. I was able to feel the emotions of the characters. If I had to use one word to describe this movie it would be "POWERFUL".
