Editors Note
Note Three Irish-Catholic brothers living in Long Island--a "serious" Catholic worried about his relationship with a Jewish woman, a steadfast husband having an affair, and a commitment-phobe being pressured by a girlfriend--talk over their romantic entanglements. The 27-year-old writer-director-producer-star, Ed Burns, won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance for this debut.
Plot Summary
Summary Two main issues are complicating the lives of the Irish, Long Island-based, working-class McMullen brothers: Catholicism and women.^Jack is the married oldest brother who's cheating on his perfect wife. Barry is the relationship-wary middle brother who, to his surprise and dismay, is finally falling in love. But Patrick, the most religious brother, ironically is the one who must deal with issues of premarital sex and abortion--a situation that leaves him consumed with guilt. Fortunately for the siblings, however, they're all temporarily living under the same roof, where they can discuss their problems and philosophies--and help each other make it through this troubled time.

Reviews
ReviewSource Washington Post
Review ...a hilarious look at guys in their natural state: Their thinking bufuddled by testosterone and Bud... this knowing, low-budget comedy will appeal to men, who'll recognize their behavior, but also to women, who'll see it as goosing the gander.

Review ...this movie is so much fun that nobody will overlook the humanity that lights up first-time writer-director Edward Burns' autobiographical look at his kin... The film is so well-acted that it seems not acted at all. Burns has created an endearing gathering of people...
