The Brothers (2001) Review


Good
Like many other African-American-targetted flicks like The Best Man and Waiting to Exhale, The Brothers is best when it's trying to be a comedy and comes off as fluffy if not sappy and lame when attempting to teach us more serious lessons about life and love.

Deliver Us From Eva Review


Bad
Red flags of caution should shoot up any time the strongest actor in an ensemble comedy is a former rap star with a Halloween sequel and the critically-panned remake of Rollerball on his resume.

Headstrong Eva (Union) repeatedly interferes in her three sisters' romantic relationships.

But James and Eva fall in love despite their obvious differences, and everyone comes to discover that a satisfied Eva causes more problems than an irritated one.
