Bros is about to be a big mainstream moment for LGBTQ movies, for better or worse. Even though I am totally the demographic for the film, it just feels too sanitized for me. It ends up feeling like a rerun of Will & Grace rather than this progressive and edgy comedy.
While it sometimes feels too cliched and trope-filled, it seems everyone deserves their own cheesy rom-com. Billy Eichner does his best, but could a different director have brought out the best of the premise? Critic EJ Moreno dives into what works and what doesn’t work in Bros.
