A lot of crazy over-the-top humor, but unfortunately there about as many stupid moments as well. Ferrell and Reilly are alarmingly convincing. A good laugh.

Doesn't Do Reilly and Ferrell Justice

There were some funny parts in this movie, but there were also parts that dragged on and weren’t as funny as it could have been. The backstory is interesting enough: two guys in their forties acting like a duo of eight-year-olds as they drive their newlywed parents crazy. Even though it’s a bit creepy at times because of their actions that should make one question their psychology, there’s some solid material that pops up once in a while that are laugh-out-loud funny. But more than half of the time, instead of showing us an organic comedy, it all feels too forced. Therefore, it made me wonder if the filmmakers had enough confidence with the material. If they doubt, I don’t buy; and if I don’t buy, why should I be invested in these characters? I like Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly but thi...

Chalk up another bad one from Ferrel and Co.

Will Ferrel continues his string of mediocre comedies with the Judd Apatow produced Step Brothers. After Dr. Robert Doback (Richard Jenkins) and Nancy Huff (Mary Steenburgen) get married, their 40 year old children (Ferrell and Reily) are forced to live together, weather they like it or not. As the film moves at its deliberate pace the brothers, who at first are enemies, form an unlikely bond as they face the inevitability of adulthood.

The performances from the cast are solid. Will Ferrel, though not doing much different than from his other films turns in a good performance alongside fellow Talladega Nights co-star John C. Reily. Richard Jenkins shines as the father of Reily, making the best of what he's given as he did in Fun with Dick and Jane. However, I'm sad to report good acting...

Step Brothers: The Movie!!

Overall, the movie was non-stop funny with great performances and lines. The Visitor's Richard Jenkins shows us he can be in indie films and blockbusters alike. He really is a good actor. The last time I remember seeing Mary Steenbergen in a film was when I saw Back to the Future III in the third grade. Needless to say, it's been awhile. Still, she managed to be attractive, funny, and oozing with charm.

My main problem with the movie and the only reason I didn't give it a higher rating, was because of the bad language and some crass humor. That wasn't necessary. Also, I felt that the characters were a little too mainstream, hanging up posters of rock bands that would be expected for the average 40 year old man. I didn't feel that these characters were anything more than status quo a...
