ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW: A saucy and passionate comedy that
traces the intricate, joshing relationships of four African-American men as they attempt to support each other and, at the
same time, move beyond each other. These ardent, mostly single-guy romantics deeply love women but stumble the moment they
try to figure out how to love them. Written and directed by Gary Hardwick, the movie is filled with the sort of just-try-and-top-this-sucker
dialogue that leaves an audience hooting with delight, yet it digs more vibrantly into issues of trust, pleasure, commitment,
and camaraderie than any Hollywood feature in recent memory. As Jackson, who is tired of hopping from one relationship to
the next, Morris Chestnut shows the charm and force of a major actor.
THE BROTHERS (Screen Gems
2001) Four close-knit, African-American friends (Morris Chestnut, Shemar Moore, Bill Bellamy and D.L. Hughley) test the limits
of honesty and commitment as they barhop, climb the career ladder and incessantly fall in and out of love. Along the way,
their friendship gets put to the test. But when one of them announces he's getting married, they realize they'll need to
rely on each other to make it through the ups and downs of life.
