The Brothers | 2001 | R | - 7.3.6

Four fun-loving upscale friends (Bill Bellamy, Morris Chestnut, D.L. Hughley and Shemar Moore) are "The Brothers" who must come to grips with reality when one of them decides to get married. Also with Gabrielle Union, Tamala Jones, Tatyana Ali and Julie Benz. [1:46]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Lots and lots of sexual innuendo, including many references to oral sex, multiple partner sex, masturbation and casual sex. A woman unbuttons her shirt and we see her in her bra; she proceeds to kiss a man passionately. We see a shirtless man and a woman in her bra making out on a bed. We see the bare backs and shoulders of a naked man and naked woman as they're having sex; the woman is on top of the man and then the man is on top of the woman. A woman kisses a man's chest and then begins to perform fellatio on him but stops; the man is upset and a long discussion about oral sex and body parts follows (then the man tries to push the woman's head back down into his crotch). We see a woman in her bra and a shirtless man kissing passionately in bed. A woman in a nightgown dances suggestively and begins to strip for her husband; he's not interested, so she stops and says she needs to go get some batteries (for her vibrator). We see several scantily clad strippers and prostitutes (thong underwear, string bras) at a bachelor party. A woman takes off a man's shirt and asks him if he'd like another woman to join the two of them for a threesome. A woman unzips a man's pants and starts to shake his penis but he tells her to stop (no nudity is visible); then she charges him for her service. We see a woman wearing only a towel. A woman performs fellatio on a man (off camera); but we do hear and see how pleased he is. We find out that a father and son have dated the same woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A few times a man dreams of a woman pointing a gun and firing a shot at him (but no one is ever hurt). Several shots are fired into an apartment, breaking windows. A woman throws another woman onto a table and to the ground.

LANGUAGE 6 - About a dozen F-words, many anatomical and scatological references, several mild obscenities, some religious profanities, many racial slurs.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
