The Brothers

on March 23, 2001 by Dwayne E. Leslie
   This story follows four young men and their individual problems as they seek the perfect woman. But that is far from happening, since the word "commitment"--and the implied loss of freedom--is synonymous with death for these players--that is, until Terry ("Young & The Restless" soap hunk Shemar Moore) decides to end his bachelor career and tie the knot. Jackson ("The Best Man's" Morris Chestnut) finds his own soul mate, only to find out that he has a bone to pick with the skeleton in her closet. Meanwhile, Brian ("How to be a Player's" Bill Bellamy) is trying vainly to deal with racial confusion and language barriers with the women he is dating. Derrrick (D.L. Hughley of TV's "The Hughleys"), on the other hand, is already married, but finds frustration with the limits his wife sets in the bedroom.

   Despite the title, both male and female perspectives on relationships and how to resolve problems are presented here, which makes this sexy voyeuristic journey almost educational to the date crowd it's aiming for. However, the film intertwines a multitude of subplots that do nothing but complicate matters. Starring Morris Chestnut, Shemar Moore, D.L. Hughley, Bill Bellamy, Gabrielle Union and Tamala Jones, Directed and written by Gary Hardwick. Produced by Darin Scott and Paddy Cullen. A Screen Gems release. Drama. Rated R for sexual content and language. Running time: 97 min
