Reviews for The Brothers Bloom

Review - Brothers Bloom, The

It started out great. The scene in which Bloom first meets Penelope and she starts explaining all her hobbies is hilarious. But it goes downhill quickly from there and just gets morbid and stupid at the end. About half way through, I didn't like any of the characters anymore and didn't care enough to try to figure out what was going on.
