Mickey (Edward Burns) and Francis Fitzpatrick (Mike McGlone), each in his own fashion, have tried to live by their father's rule: "You've got to do what makes you happy first." Mickey thinks he's happy being a cab driver and living the life of a carefree bachelor -- that is, until he meets Hope (Maxine Bahns), a beautiful, free-spirited graduate student on her way to Paris. Francis thinks he's happy making a killing on Wall Street and being married to his vivacious college sweetheart (Jennifer Aniston) -- that is, until he takes up with Heather (Cameron Diaz), a stunning blonde from Mickey's past. When the two brothers' romantic problems converge in ways neither of them could have imagined, the old sibling rivalry turns into a battle royal.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Burns emphatically avoids sophomore slump with an inviting, ruefully funny film that lives up to his initial promise.
Rotten: Sadly, the 28-year-old Irish auteur from New York lost his footing while stepping up the Hollywood food chain. Slickness set in.
Fresh: A funnier, more polished variation on actor/director Ed Burns' The Brothers McMullen.
Fresh: Burns manages to take on a laundry list of touchy issues in a relatively frank, unflinching manner. His characters retain their dignity and integrity without false dramatic redemption. It's a true adult saga.
One of My All-time Favorites
This movie is Ed Burns' best movie to date, with 'Purple Flowers' coming in second. Very funny, great music, and big heart. I can put this movie on and watch it anytime, and still enjoy it every time. Ed, you rule.
She's the one....
Yes, she is! Jennifer Anniston plays her typical victim role-and its the role she was born to play. Ed Burns does his cool as the other side of the pillow directing and writing and acting. Cameron Diaz is a ditz- par for the course. Everyone in the cast is great. The story is good. There is a different beer being consumed in every scene. The grandfather in the movie from Frazier steals the show. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS MOVIE!
