A rye romantic comedy about two brothers wrestling with their preposterous approaches to life and love, the film featured early performances from Jennifer Aniston, Amanda Peet, Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz.
The film also featured the critically acclaimed soundtrack from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and went on to become Fox Searchlight’s biggest box office hit of 1996.
"Burns emphatically avoids sophomore slump with an inviting, ruefully funny film that lives up to his initial promise."~ Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"Burns manages to take on a laundry list of touchy issues in a relatively frank, unflinching manner. His characters retain their dignity and integrity without false dramatic redemption. It's a true adult saga."~ Leonard Klady, Daily Variety
