Not much of a plot and no compelling romance

The older brother was kinda just a typical sad and pathetic guy who could never really communicate his feelings. The younger brother was a cocky playboy who never connected emotionally with women. Of the two, the older brother was a more likeable character, but the movie decided to explore the younger brother more and he's exactly what you expect: flirty and horny.

At the beginning I thought that the older brother was the main character. Then 35 minutes in, they go back and tell the story from the younger brother's point of view and then they meet back when the brothers finish a conversation from the older brother's story. They continue telling the story from the younger brother's point of view with a few scenes of the older brother mixed in. It seemed like the writer had a story in mind that involved both brothers but for some reason didn't want the older brother to be the main character. So instead of telling the story chronologically, they started with all the buildup of the older brother's story and got it out of the way and then cut to the younger brother and told his story start to finish with a few climax and resolution scenes mixed in for the older brother.

I initially thought that if the story had been told chronologically then it would have been better, but either way the focus would be on the younger brother who isn't a very interesting character. I think that the older brother's story is around a 6 and the younger brother's is about a 4 and when you combine them together the way this movie did, you get a low 5. The ending was okay; it wasn't great, but it wasn't that bad.
