Here’s a quick little reminder for any homophobes who stumbled upon this article and somehow made it to this section: your hatred will not stop progress and your bigotry will not stop history. Review bombing “Bros” into oblivion will not change the fact it is the first studio picture to feature an all LGBTQIA+ main cast, and it certainly will not change the reality that “Bros” is really, really good. Spending 30 seconds clicking a button to declare “one star” will not magically make gay people disappear off the planet, and people like Billy Eichner are going to continue being loudly and proudly gay while making weird art that continues to disrupt the status quo.
2022 has been a big year for gay rom-coms thanks to “Bros” and Joel Kim Booster’s wonderful “Fire Island,” another film that had an attempted review bomb that failed miserably because too many people loved it and helped balance out the ratings. I hate (lies, I love it) to break it to any homophobes reading this, but review bombing “Bros” isn’t going to stop the film from coming out. “Bros” will hit theaters, people will see it, and then it will end up on a streaming service so even more people can enjoy it. That’s going to happen regardless of an IMDb score, so all you’re doing is annoying whoever’s job it is to delete all the bogus star ratings.
Grow up, bros.
