      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Like many twenty-somethings, The Brothers McMullen can be a tad self-absorbed, but they're still likely to win you over with their (slightly profane) charm.

      Steve D The characters did not engage me at all. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review maggie p I've always liked this movie! Great indie from that era!!!! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I had the opportunity to interview one of the actors in this film, Michael McGlone, and the anecdotes he told on this film are incredible. The film is to be enjoyed with the family and have a good time with food and beer with your friends, I love this story and the performance of the pretty boy McGlone, is incredible, good job to the director Edward Burns for this genius. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Paul K One of my all time favorite movies. I guess being Irish Catholic who grew up in the NYC area, I can relate to this movie allot. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/01/19 Full Review Audience Member This is barely a single star. If I could rate it lower I would. Really bad acting and terrible story. One actress that played Audrey was so awful we laughed. And how many references did they need to remind us that they were Irish. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review william s If this is Burn's best than he's had one $hitty career.Bantering,boring bull$hit.

      Manohla Dargis Spin While seriously lacking in polish, Burns's debut has an edge on most of its big-ticket competition thanks to its bright dialogue and a couple of sweet performances, including one by the writer-director himself. Dec 27, 2022 Full Review Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly Rated: B- Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Joe Williams St. Louis Post-Dispatch Rated: 3/5 Jul 7, 2005 Full Review Mike Davies Birmingham Post A small but engaging, amusing and often touching story that will strike many a chord, whatever your religion, nationality or sibling relationship. Mar 29, 2024 Full Review Quentin Crisp Christopher Street A self-absorbed picture. Apr 25, 2022 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot The cheapo production values don't hide its rare ability to capture human nature. Rated: 3/4 Mar 2, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
