    What is; 'oh brother' supposed to be?

    Can somebody please tell me what is a true feeling when someone replied to our comment as; "oh brother"

    Is it considered to be something negative?

    Thank you very much.

    PS. I said to someone; she's got her mother's eyes. And a person replied; "oh brother".

    Is it considered to be something negative? Yes, it expresses disappointment, disapproval, unhappiness.

    Thank you very much.

    I don't understand its use there.
