*Online Premiere* Two brothers reconnect after the death of their father (their father was the creator of “The Sims”). Directed by Corey Sherman, “The Brothers Sims” is a gloriously ludicrous comedy about the lessons of brotherhood and family. The estranged sons of Darren Biscuit Sims reunite under unfortunate circumstances. While Zach was always a dutiful son (“dad’s pretty little prince”), Jon left at an early age for a life of tagging freight trains with an art collective. Now, Zach wants to make up for lost time but Jon just wants to fill out his inheritance paperwork and be done with it. Soon, the shocking secret of the success behind “The Sims” is revealed and the brothers must come to terms with the family legacy and their own relationship. Highly quotable in its firm commitment to all things corny and absurd. (“You still hanging with Mrs. Lipsomb?”). [Watch on YouTube]. (13 minutes). Director / Editor: Corey Sherman.
