The Brother's McMullen (1995)

Writer/director Edward Burns also stars in this raunchy, raucous  
compendium of male commitment fears, as seen through the lives of 
three Irish-American brothers.  (Burns plays Barry, the middle one, 
and the least Catholic of the three.)  They live under the same roof 
on Long Island, thanks to the oldest, Jack, who's married and has an 
attic room to spare.  Though, uh, "technically challenged"-- the 
handmade film is blown up from 16mm-- the acting is relaxed, and the 
dialogue is natural.  Only the story situations seem unoriginal.  I
don't buy what these characters get themselves into.
Grade: B+
