      ashley h Brothers of the Frontier is a decent film. It is about a young man who heads off into the wilds to save his parents from their Indian captors. Joey, Andrew, and Matthew Lawrence give good performances. The teleplay is a little slow in places. Mark Sorbel did an alright job directing this TV movie. I liked it because of the drama and adventure. I remember watching this when I was a kid. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A family is forced to leave their homestead after one of their sons allegedly shoots a deer on the Holcomb's land.

It was up there with Boy Meets World on my pre-teen drama's...never really got into Saved by the Bell...hated Screech...a lot, lol. You see...Brotherly Love was like today's Jonas Brother's Disney show...three cute boys (ok...two for each show, lol) getting their own show because they're cute...they have the same first name...but they changed their last name. I loved Matt...he was definitely the cutest one of the three during the run...then there was Joey who was just sexy. Andrew...aka Andy...was a young boy...during his awkward years...so no love there, but he grew into the Lawrence cutie look later in life. Anyways...I digress...I remember watching this movie when I was in junior high too...it was on Fox Family, during the run of Brotherly Love. It was a made for tv movie that was...definitely made for tv, lol. It seems like tv actors are good in their shows...but when you put them in a different character...they suck, lol. I remember loving this movie...but after watching it again...I wonder why??? The movie was about three brothers (Jamie (Andrew Lawrence), Ethan (Joey Lawrence), Aaron (Matt Lawrence)) who are running from trouble, and get separated from their parents on the journey to a new city. They have to learn to stick together and use their skills to survive. That's pretty much the whole movie, lol. I was disappointed...mainly because I loved this movie so much when I was a kid.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite the video and sound being out of sync when I watched this instantly, it was really nice to revisit this. I hadn't seen it since I was 12 or 13 years old, but it was just as entertaining (albeit cheesy) now as it was back then. This is a great family film with nothing that kids shouldn't see. It's also a nice bit of nostalgia for those of us who were fans of the Lawrence brothers back in the 90s. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I want this movie on dvd. I loved it when it came out in the 1990s. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
