also, twins! as the older brother of twins i can confirm - it’s complicated. and i should say for balance that there’s real human warmth when they talk about the early days of bros, their background and upbringing. otherwise it’s noticeably absent.

Watched it this evening and just wow. Matt’s philosophy segments are all time.

Watching this against n with my 14 year old, who adores it. After the lols stop it’s pretty fascinating as an inadvertent case study.

When I watched the documentary I had to keep pausing it every five or so minutes because they come across as total self absorbed wankers in the most intense egotistical self regarding way. Also for about half of it I was waiting (hoping?) for the moment when they turned around and said "Ha ha gotcha! This has been a wind up, we're really not that up ourselves" - but of course they are that up themselves. Bros are Jedward if they took themselves seriously.

Only just downloaded this to watch over Christmas, we remember this being an incredible watch coming in cold, so will be interesting to see how it stands up to a second viewing.
