screen frenzy may exclusively present a new Whitney Houston-filled clip of the upcoming buddy comedy Bromateswhich hits theaters on October 7 and On Demand on October 28. The Quiver Distribution release was directed by Court Crandall (Old-fashioned) and produced by Darius Films and Snoopadelic Films Inc.—even with a cameo from Snoop Dogg himself. The main cast is also full of stars, including Lil Rel Howery (Out), Josh Brener (Silicone Valley), Taryn Manning (Orange is the new black), and much more.
Bromates follows two best friends, Jonesie (Howery) and Sid (Brener), who are going through a breakup at the same time. After their brutal dump they try to move on together and literally move in together. From there, the new housemates (aka “bromates”) set out in search of fun and adventure with their social circle—mainly consisting of Angry Mike” (Asif Ali) and Runaway Dave (Brendan Scannell)—no matter how perilous their attempted escapades may turn out to be.
At the same time, they haven’t given up on the perfect romantic rebound, as highlighted in BADpi’s exclusive clip. Jonesie coaches Sid on what went wrong with his latest attempt at a rebound before pushing him toward a new potential love, played by Manning. He awkwardly but cutely suggests a karaoke duet, leading to a short but fun rendition of Whitney Houston’s “Didn’t We Almost Have It All.” You can watch the full clip at Bromates above.
Singing is just the beginning for Bromates
Unfortunately, Darlene has to book it out of her boyfriend’s bachelorette party early, intending to travel 12 hours to get to a beauty pageant. But it’s clear from her chemistry with Sid that this is just the beginning of their… Bromates story, and the official trailer has already showcased a few of their moments further down the line. Despite the romance simmering in the background, Jonesie has plenty of activities ready to keep Sid busy when he doesn’t meet a cute one.
Crandall and Chris Kemper’s script explores how far some people will go to ignore their pain, meaning the main characters and their friends are sure to end up in all sorts of scrapes. Bromates may kick off his post-breakup healing tour with Whitney Houston karaoke, but the shenanigans will only get more high stakes from there. Also up for the ride are the comedic talents of Jessica Lowe, Flula Borg, Ken Davitian, Marla Gibbs and Rob Riggle.
Bromates will be available in select theaters on October 7 and On Demand on October 28. The film has a running time of 94 minutes and is rated R for abusive and sexual content, drug use and language.
