      Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle This is the movie I believe Burns has been trying to make since The Brothers McMullen, 11 years ago. Rated: 3/4 Aug 25, 2006 Full Review Philip Wuntch Dallas Morning News Traffics in such familiar territory as sibling rivalries, generational estrangements and broken dreams. But it slowly, sometimes too slowly, connects with the viewer. Rated: B- Aug 25, 2006 Full Review Ty Burr Boston Globe The Groomsmen may be low-cal Cassavetes or Secrets and Lies for mooks, but Burns knows his turf. The marvel is that after seven films he's still finding fresh grass. Rated: 2.5/4 Aug 10, 2006 Full Review Cole Smithey ColeSmithey.com Writer/director Ed Burns adds a droopy fourth chapter to his Irish-American working class films... Rated: C- Apr 22, 2009 Full Review Doris Toumarkine Film Journal International Secure in its indie identity and wholly entertaining, The Groomsmen deserves hordes of filmgoers seeking quality alternatives to the bigger summer pictures.
