Picks and Pans Review: Brotherly Love

UPDATED 05/27/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 05/27/1985 at 01:00 AM EDT

CBS (Tuesday, May 28, 9 p.m. ET)

Judd (Taxi) Hirsch plays two brothers. Ben is sane, sweet and trendy; he grills on mesquite wood and recycles his New York Times. Harry, the other brother, is bonkers; he kills people. Harry gets out of a mental hospital and arrives to torment his brother, impersonating Ben to get him fired, to make his son think that Daddy's dangerous (and we have already seen this week what sons do to dangerous dads), and to frame him for a murder. The script, by the late Ernest (The French Connection) Tidyman, throws in some caricature mobsters and some high finance to make the story amusing. As twin tales go, this one is gripping entertainment.
