When I saw the promos for this movie before it was released in theatres, I knew that I would really like this movie! It's a movie that has a lot to offer. A stellar cast, interesting storyline, drama, comedy and everything in between. It deals with the dynamics of four guys and their struggles with relationships from being single to being married. On the DVD side of things, this movie is entertaining enough to be able to watch over & over again, and not get tired of it. This is the most important thing when actually buying & not renting a movie.
If you like movies that deal with interpersonal dynamics with a little humour & drama thrown in, this movie will definitely not disappoint.

This movie was one of the best movies I've seen this year. I was very much pleased with this one. Especially seeing Shemar breaking out of the Soap Opera's and into the movies, showing his true talent. This movie definitly will be coming home to me and taking a spot right along side my other favorite movies "The Wood", and "The Best Man".

I was bored one night so I flipped on HBO and found out this movie was on. So I watched it and now I have up in the pentheon of movie greats. My favorite character is Jackson because he's cool and someone that most of us guys can relate to. He is also responsible and consciensous and the man that everyone can count on. His parents count on him despite their divorce, his sister counts on him even though she just graduated, and his friends count on him because they have problems and they know Jack always has their backs. But what happens when Jackson runs into a serious problem of his own which is finding out his girlfriend Denise dated his father? And who does he turn to when he breaks up with Denise and later regrets it? The answer is his three friends Derrick, Brian, and Terry. Together they set out to help one another with the problems they encounter such as Derrick's impending divorce from his wife, Brian's bad luck with women and his family crisis, and Terry's reservations about marriage along with what Jackson has to deal with. They are known as "The Brothers", four close friends who stick with each other and help each other out through thick and thin. Morris Chestnut and others shine in this feel good story about love, happiness, and all that other s***.

AN eye opener for any woman who doesn't understand the psyche of the modern man. Shemar is a beautiful black man, especially without his shirt. Imagine a story whose plot is centered around four of the most gorgeous men with a very practical theme .The movie provides insight into the hard exterior of a man and an understanding of the soft inside. This is the flip side to Waiting To Exhale only more realistic. It's nice to see movies depict black men as successful individuals with a lot to offer. Can't wait for the DVD. I must own this one!

I believe there is more than one of these "Brothers" movies and all of them are great. At least, the same group of men all together at the same time. They are adorable and funny and there is lots of laughs and excitement with romance thrown in the mix

The Brothers tries to copy Waiting to Exhale. However that film adaptation made the same mistake this film makes: The four men do not become characters who tell their own stories; they become caricatures of types of black men we all know. These stereotypes include the misogynist, the womanizer, the family man and the nice guy who finishes last. If these are the good brothers then I'm worried. Most of these guys only cared about money, clothes, cars and sex. I wanted some dimension to their personalities that would make them into real people onscreen.
There was a great story here sadly, the writer couldn't tell it because the shallow producers decided to show pretty pictures of handsome actors wearing expensive designer clothes driving nice cars living in the lap of luxury. I wondered where the character development was. The relationships the Brothers have with the each other seemed contrived. These actors never bonded like "Brothers." There was no chemistry between them; the only thing they had in common was the paycheck they got for this film. "Brother" means someone you're very close to; I didn't get that feeling watching these four guys onscreen.
The relationships these "Brothers" have with the women in their lives seemed convoluted as well. Falling in love in this film happens overnight; there is no natural progression to the romance. Morris Chestnut's character meets Gabrielle Union in the park, in one frame they meet and the next they're in bed and in another they're in love. Their big conflict: She used to date his Father-come on! Shemar Moore's character is saying he's a reformed womanizer and is getting married after having a two-month relationship! He gets cold feet and his jilted lover comes back to attack him with a gun in the climax of the film.
