Ed Burns continues to amaze as an actor and director. This is a hilarious, sad, frustrating and heartwarming story of two brothers who cannot stop competing with each other, even when it involves their women. Great cast, witty dialogue, very entertaining!

This movie was advertised as a starring vehicle for Jennifer Aniston at the height of her Friends popularity. don't be fooled, she is barely in it. Not only that, but she demonstrates her weak acting skills by being the only character without a thick Bronx accent (her onscreen sister and her parents manage it, why can't she?)
Edward Burns is cute as usual, but the movie is hard to endure. The storyline is slow to emerge. John Mahoney fans will like him -- he plays the Irish-catholic New York father to the hilt. Hard core J. Aniston fans will want to add it to their collection, but then again, hard-core Aniston fans wont care that she can't act, either.

"As one who is usually unable to watch romantic comedies because of the prevalence of slapstick, bad dialogue, absence of character development, overused mistaken identities, and inane story lines, I laughed my ass off at the two adult Irish-American brothers, their dad, and the women in their lives. The dialogue is at times witty, ribald, and/or sarcastic; the character development is superb; the humor is understated.
Edward Burns, who wrote and directed the movie, plays the role of the most likable world-wise brother, Mickey. Mike McGlone plays his brother, Francis.
John Mahoney plays the narrow-minded, family-dominating father, who has only a superficial understanding of the other family members. Typical of the father's unsolicited advice to his two grown sons is that whether or not one believes in God, he should respect the Church and be a good Catholic.
The two female leads are Cameron Diaz playing Heather, and Jennifer Aniston playing Reneé. The excellent acting gives credibility to all of the characters.
Viewers who are expecting torrid love scenes, pie-in-the-face humor, or gratuitous violence will be disappointed. On the other hand, those who can appreciate being given a glimpse into a mirror that reflects our foibles and unrealistic expectations, will see the movie as a gem."
