Half Brothers exceeded my expectations, especially since the trailers didn’t show you the depth of the movie. There was a lot more to it than a quirky comedy.
The dynamics of the brothers was my favorite part, but the story also caught my attention. It was a deep tug on your heart strings kind of movie. The directing and acting both were so well done that you super cared about them and wanted them to find what they were seeking.
I took my seven year old granddaughter to see it (luckily she is a very fast reader) and she loved it too. There is a very large portion of the movie that is subtitled, so reading is required. She actually cried twice during the movie, and laughed out loud even more. When I asked her what her favorite part was she said, “The goat. He was awesome.” She’s not wrong. The goat was indeed awesome.
This is definitely a dramedy of epic proportions. It has some serious current issues that our country is facing. It brings attention to so many problems that we are not dealing with but need to deal with, in a compassionate way. It opened my eyes to things I hadn’t though of or experienced before.
I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with Half Brothers. So if you’re willing to face the outside world, check this movie out.
About The Peetimes: Heads up — if you don’t speak Spanish, you’ll have a lot of reading to do. A large portion of the movie is subtitled. I specifically found Peetimes that were only in English, as to not lose something in translation.
There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Half Brothers. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
