Billy Eichner’s rom-com, Bros, is released next month, but how do critics feel about the highly-anticipated film? The feature, which is in cinemas from 28 October, was written and stars Eichner alongside Luke Macfarlane, Kristen Chenoworth, Kenan Thompson and Debra Messing.

Guillermo Diaz, Bowen Yang and Ts Madison also appeared in the film. The film was directed by Nicholas Stoller, best known for Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Bad Neighbours and Friends From College.

It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.

But that doesn’t make the rest of this charming film any less entertaining and effective,” giving it a four out of five rating.   Variety Peter Debruge from Variety said: “Bros does a decent job of showing how incredibly different and complex these two characters can be.”   Slant Magazine, 2/5 Kenji Fujishima from Slant gave the rom-com a disappointing two out of five, stating: “The film is ultimately let down by its pat perspectives on modern romance and social justice.”   Financial Times Although the FT didn’t give the film a rating, Nicholas Rapold stated the movie “eases into the recognisable contours of the romcom, but there’s a rawness and a vulnerability here so foreign to recent entries in the genre as to feel fresh.”   Vani
