Ed Burns wrote and directed this comedy about three Irish-Catholic brothers whose complications in love are rooted in their common experiences growing up in a violent family.
Barry (Burns) has a commitment phobia, but his world is turned upside down when he falls in love with a beautiful girl called Audrey (Maxine Bahns). Jack (Jack Mulcahy) is feeling restless in his marriage but is under pressure from his wife Molly to start a family. Patrick (Mike McGlone) is a committed Catholic who is torn between his faith and his Jewish girlfriend.
The brothers are brought closer together when their abusive father dies, and their mother leaves for Ireland with her lover.
