‘Bros’ Review: You’ve Got Male
A heartfelt, hilarious classic Hollywood-style romantic comedy, Bros (★★★★☆) doesn’t screw around with the formula of forebears like When Harry Met Sally or You’ve Got Mail. Rather, the movie — produced by Judd Apatow, directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), and co-written by Stoller and star Billy Eichner — delivers fresh takes on tropes that worked for those films, while trafficking in jokes and situations they never touched.With tart dialogue and earnest intent, Bros leans into the romance of the giddy first kiss, and the determined dash across town to declare one’s love right now in front of an audience of awww-ing friends who will dance out the scene in a joyful montage.The filmmakers’ attention to genre detail includes layering Bros with that rare, underrated quality of a good romantic comedy: a believable resistance to romance. To stir the pot, somebody or something has to be standing in the way of happily ever after.Here, the culprits are our lead pair of lovebirds, commitment-shy New Yorkers Bobby (Eichner) and Aaron (Luke Macfarlane), who at least commit to a text-assisted dance of hooking up and sort of dating, after meeting at a club.Their rocky progress towards a climax, or several climaxes, follows a familiar rom-com path, but with both the rom and the com rendered through the specific lens of Bobby and Aaron’s modern gay experience.

Billy Eichner: Carrie Underwood blocking me on Twitter was a 'great honor'
Carrie Underwood blocked comedian Billy Eichner on Twitter, and he's still laughing about the snub.In fact, the "Bros" star called it a "great honor."While recounting the spat on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Billy said Carrie's social media move came during COVID. "There was this thing where she, like, during the height of COVID, she retweeted a speech by some Republican guy [Matt Walsh] and said that kids shouldn't have to wear masks in schools," Billy said.The way the "Billy On The Street" star saw it, Carrie was "letting her political views be known for the first time."Soon after, Billy made several jokes about Carrie and her views, and "she didn't like that," he claimed. "It was one of the great thrills of my life," he said of being blocked by the country superstar.Last year, after realizing he was blocked, Billy tweeted out a screenshot that informed him he's persona non grata on Carrie's Twitter. ICONIC. pic.twitter.com/NBBHLFCpD9"ICONIC," he said at the time. Ryan Grantham, the "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" actor who was convicted last week of killing his own mother, is scared he'll become a victim of abuse in prison because on his slight stature.His lawyer, Chris Johnson, is now arguing that Ryan shouldn't be housed in a maximum security prison, telling TMZ the actor could be "physically, psychologically and sexually intimidated" by hardened criminals. Although Ryan is 24, he has a slim stature, weighing about 100 lbs and standing 5'2".
