Here's When You Can Watch Billy Eichner's Bros At Home

"Bros" hit theaters earlier this year in September. While it originally faced pushback from the LGBTQ+ community for once again featuring a cisgender, white gay man as the main representation of their community, the film actually showcases a nearly all-LGBTQ+ cast. Not only was the cast vibrant and diverse, the film actively called out a lot of harmful stereotypes about the LGBTQ+ community, including the over-representation of cisgender gay men while the rest of the community gets very little.

The film went out of its way to point out that this single perspective doesn't make up the entirety of the community and also kept up-to-date on its LGBTQ+ history as well. "Bros" is a pretty big deal because it's the first film to feature an entirely LGBTQ+ main cast created by a major studio (Universal Studios). At heart, though, despite all of the forward-thinking elements that went into the movie, it was still a romantic comedy at the end of the day.

Hilarious, self-aware, and hitting all the beats that a rom-com should, "Bros" was an uplifting tale of finding love and also finding ways to love yourself. Self-acceptance is as important — if not more important — than finding someone else to love you, and this film really paid homage to that mentality. Although "Bros" is no longer in most theaters, it will soon be available at home.

Bros will be available for streaming in December

Unfortunately, "Bros" didn't do as well at the box office as Billy Eichner — one of the writers and the actor who portrayed Bobby — had hoped. Even with Universal's backing for the major project, it didn't make the money it was projected to make, but that doesn't make the film any less worthy of watching. Fun, dramatic, and full of struggles that everyone can relate to, the film is for the LGBTQ+ community, but it's also for anyone who understands the struggles of love.

"Bros" will have a chance to bring in more fans when it drops on Peacock early in December. As it's scheduled for a release date of December 2, 2022, anyone with a Peacock subscription will be able to watch the movie. The film is also available to rent or purchase at Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, and Vudu, with prices currently at $20 for the former option and $25 for the latter.

The importance of the story can't be overlooked, especially for the community it represents. LGBTQ+ people rarely get to see themselves on the big screen, especially in such an immersive atmosphere where everyone is part of their community.

The trailer for "Bros" highlights the film's diverse cast of LGBTQ+ actors as well as the modern struggles of living a single life and finding love. It also cleverly brings many of its cast together as members of a community board for an up-and-coming LGBTQ+ museum meant to teach its visitors about the culture and history of the community. While it may be a comedy that's meant to be lighthearted and fun, it doesn't shy away from the serious messages it wants to get across.
