This fall, Universal Pictures proudly presents the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.
From the ferocious comic mind of Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, 2019’s The Lion King, Difficult People, Impeachment: American Crime Story) and the hitmaking brilliance of filmmakers Nicholas Stoller (the Neighbors films, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Judd Apatow (The King of Staten Island, Trainwreck, The Big Sick), comes Bros, a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love and romance amidst the madness.
Starring Billy Eichner, the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film, Bros is directed by Nicholas Stoller from his screenplay with Eichner. The film is produced by Judd Apatow, Stoller and Joshua Church (co-producer Trainwreck,Step Brothers). The film is executive produced by Eichner.

From Director Nicholas Stoller, who brought us Neighbors and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, comes BROS. Funnyman Billy Eichner, who co-writes, produces and stars here, gets his moment in this groundbreaking LGBTQ+ Rom-Com which completely nails it.
Bobby (Eichner) is a successful Podcast Host and Philanthroper raising funds for an LGBTQ+ Historical Museum. He’s 40 and has never been in love, but meets his match in the striking Aaron (Luke MacFarlane) and while they seem polar opposites there is a definite attraction. Bobby is super-confident and unapologetic, while Aaron still is trying to find himself, stuck in a career he doesn’t love and maybe not quite as overt as Bobby.
The witty jokes never quit here and we found ourselves laughing start to finish, thanks to Eichner‘s fast-thinking introspection. And we love that the Film really explores the nuances in the spectrum of those in the LGBTQ+ community. There is an interesting dichotomy of him supporting the gays, but also being annoyed by them at once. He almost carries the entire weight of the Movie and it soars largely because of him.
Stoller is able to keep the tone hilariously comical, but when Bros decides to go a layer deeper exploring why Bobby has such a tough exterior, we realize this is so much more than just a Rom-Com. Canada’s Macfarlane is a perfect pairing grounding Bobby and at once, exposing his pain points and taking him outside his comfort zone.
I knew I’d like BROS but I didn’t realize how much I would love it. BROS screens at TIFF ’22 as follows:
