The Brothers is a fresh and hilarious look at four African-American "brothers" lifelong friends who band together to navigate through the turbulent waters of love and sex on their way to healthy, happy and committed relationships. Jackson (Morris Chestnut- The Best Man) is a successful pediatrician who is desperate for intimacy but terrified of commitment. Brian (Bill Bellamy- Love Jones) is the sexy old-school bachelor who fights tooth and nail to protect his independence from women he thinks are undeserving of him. Terry (Shemar Moore- TV's "The Young and the Restless") is a renowned womanizer who desperately wants to settle down. Derrick (D.L. Hughley- The Original Kings of Comedy) is a loving husband and father who always finds time for the boys despite a demanding wife who refuses to meet his sexual demands. Denise (Gabrielle Union- Bring it On), Sheila (Tamala Jones- Blue Streak) and Louise (Jennifer Lewis- Cast Away) are the "sisters" who teach them that the battle of the sexes is won in the heart in this brazenly comic look at love, honesty and the beauty of commitment.

Critics Consensus: Often seen as a Waiting to Exhale with men, The Brothers is amiable. However, it feels superficial and somewhat of a retread.

Airless and oddly fatiguing.
