Overview

Two white-bred wannabe gangsta rappers set out on an all-night crime spree designed to establish their street credit and provide the funding needed to pay for a studio recording session in a hip-hop flavored crime comedy featuring Joel Fatone, Shaquille O'Neal, and Ludacris. Pete (Joachim Wiese) and Lanny (John Tindall) dream of the day when their skills be enough to pay the bills, but in the meantime they're having enough trouble just earning enough cash to cover the cost of their demo. Raised in a picket-fence paradise that's about as far away from the ghetto as one could ever imagine, this misguided pair of aspiring rappers determine to make a name for themselves by setting out on a manic night of low-level criminal conduct. When a bizarre twist of fate finds Pete and Lanny's incompetent criminal enterprise mistaken for benevolent heroism by the community, the pair quickly seize the opportunity to turn their fifteen minutes of fame into a successful hip-hop career.

    Wickedly funny hip hop comedy

    I saw The Brothers at a film festival a couple of years ago and thought it was hilarious. The film has a lot of heart and soul and brains to it. If I had to compare it to another film, it's kind of like a "white guys" version of the film FRIDAY. If you're into that type of film, I highly recommend THE BROS. The film has a lot of great cameos from Shaq, Ludacris, Carrot Top, Cindy Margolis, Vanilla Ice, etc. in a mockumentary portion. But the film's stars, John Tindall, Joachim Wiese, and Dennis Scott really put out fantastic performances. Keep an eye on these guys. This is NOT another "Malibu's Most Wanted." It has a brain, heart and soul.
