Bros Review

 



Any romantic comedy that references When Harry Met Sally multiple times is a winner in my book and that is just what Bros feels like. It’s a mixture of gay cliches, romance, and modern-day dating. Everyone will feel seen in this movie because many characters have different life experiences. From the moment it starts Eichner puts the gay community on blast and reasonably describes how everything works for him. He defines what love means to him and how gay love has been manipulated to please heteronormative ideologies. This is a rated R inside track on what it’s like to date within the queer community and how difficult it can be. Eichner highlights the different ways to approach men and how to date them. 

Bobby (Billy Eichner) and Aaron (Luke MacFarlane) are two emotionally unavailable men who have had commitment issues in the past. They’ve never been in love and they don’t want to even attempt falling for anyone. One night when they catch each other’s eye at a bar their journey begins. Their relationship is a slow burn which is always fun to watch. Eichner and McFarlane have fantastic chemistry with each other. The reason why this movie is so entertaining and fun come down to how honest the writing is for these characters and their experiences. The more authentic the story is for a romantic comedy the more people will connect with it.
