Billy Eichner’s particular blend of in-your-face comedy (Billy on the Street, Difficult People) may never have hinted at this broadly appealing film about two gay men looking for a little romance. But Eichner, along with director Nicholas Stoller and executive producer Judd Apatow, has created a funny, relatable classic romcom that arcs expectantly from the meet cute to the inevitable declarations of love. As the first theatrically released gay romantic comedy to come from a major studio and the first studio film with a majority LGBTQ+ cast, how they get there is refreshingly new.
“Like any successful comedy — or movie, for that matter — Bros succeeds in its specificity: in this case, gay life and culture that are brimming with foibles, contradictions, triumphs and failures just waiting to be mined for comic gold.” — Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
