Co-written and directed by Nicholas Stoller, ‘Bros’ is the first romantic comedy movie from a major studio that mainly revolves around two gay men, possibly inclined toward falling in love. One of them is a proud yet self-doubting museum curator named Bobby Lieber, tasked with coming up with a romantic comedy about a gay couple. While writing, Aaron, a handsome and macho lawyer, enters and turns his life upside down with his comfortable aura.
Bobby finds himself falling in love with Aaron, but both of them have deeply-rooted commitment problems, which makes their relationship difficult. The heartfelt yet comedic narrative is complemented by the hilarious performances from an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, comprising Billy Eichner, Luke Macfarlane, Ts Madison, Monica Raymund, and Guillermo Díaz.
