Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! As always, if you see something you like, click on the image to buy it. Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best Alex (Ryan O’Nan) is booted from his band, dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his job singing songs dressed like a dayglo moose, and he has no idea what to do next. Luckily, a stranger named Jim (Michael Weston) does, and soon the two set out on a multi-city tour singing original songs backed by a selection of children’s musical instruments/toys and learning the value of friendship and being true to yourself. O’Nan also wrote and directed this low-fi gem, and the result is a sweet and funny look at lives in flux. It also features a handful of incredibly catchy songs that may have you checking Amazon or iTunes for availability. (Yes, there is an album.) You’ll find yourself smiling through most of the film, either from the simple and addictive songs or from the familiar faces sharing the screen for a few minutes here and there including Arielle Kebbel, Jason Ritter, Christopher McDonald, Andrew McCarthy and others.

Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best

In Ryan O’Nan‘s Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best, a singer/songwriter teams up with a musical revolutionary in what looks like a quirky bromance complete with some solid music. Spoiler alert: they probably end up beating the best. It stars O’Nan, who also wrote the screenplay, alongside Michael Weston (House M.D.) and Arielle Kebbel (John Tucker Must Die). You can check out the trailer here, but we’ve got a clip that gives an excellent view to the kind of awkward, interpersonal comedy on display. In it, Kyle (Jason Ritter) breaks up the band and agrees to disagree with O’Nan’s Alex. Oscilloscope picked up the movie, so it’ll be in theaters today (9/21). Be on the look out, and see the clip for yourself:
