Greg’s Review: I’ve seen “Bros” and loved it!

Went to a screening of Bros last night at the cool space NeueHouse Hollywood on Sunset.

The movie won’t be out for a few weeks but we certainly have been hearing a lot about it since mid-summer thanks to tireless promotion from stars Billy Eichner and Luke Macfarlane. I’m a big fan of both of these guys so you gotta figure they had me at hello. But I genuinely enjoyed their movie, laughed a lot, thought the writing was very good and the acting good two.

We know what Macfarlane can do as we’ve seen since his days as Scotty on ABC’s Brothers & Sisters then later when he became a hot leading man on a bunch of Hallmark movies of which I have seen every one of! He’s also done other series and has many stage credits. He’s so attractive and seems so decent that you kind of want to marry him. And I realized during this movie that it is impossible to get tired of seeing Macfarlane shirtless.

But Eichner, a co-writer and an executive producer, is the revelation in this movie because he gets to really inhabit a complicated character who has the potential to be a real turnoff. He’s not even though he is, in many scenes, the character is a lot. It’s a real triumph for Eichner and I rooted for this seemingly mismatched couple to end up together.

The film is the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio featuring an entirely LGBTQA principal cast including Bowen Yang, Dot-Marie Jones, Miss Lawrence, Monica Raymund, Ts Madison, Guy Branum, Jim Rash, Peter Y. Kim, and Harvey Fierstein, among others. Out actors Amanda Bearse, Guillermo Diaz and Jai Rodriguez are among members of the cast portraying straight characters.

Bros will hit theaters on September 30.

2 Remarks

  1. Happy to hear movie is good. You know how it would be critizied (from both heteros and gays) if it would be horrible. Might kill othe rpotencial gay oriented projects

  2. I’ve been anticipating Bros. since the trailer premiered. Finally, excited to buy my advanced AMC tickets…BOOHYA!
