Friday Flicks: Step Brothers

Step Brothers (2008)

About the Movie: Brennan (Will Ferrell) and Dale (John C. Reilly) are two middle-aged loafers who are forced to live together when their parents get married. When the reluctant step-siblings' immature antics over TV privileges and personal property take their toll on the marriage, the devious duo hatch a hysterical scheme to reunite the couple.

From the people who brought you Talladega Nights and Anchorman, STEP BROTHERS is the hilarious comedy which proves you don't need brains or talent to succeed...well, maybe you do.

From me: Well, this "hilarious comedy" was neither hilarious nor comedic. From the very first scene to the point where I turned the movie off (15 min. in) - not one chuckle escaped. The rating alone should have warned me, but I though that it sounded like a great storyline, two "adults" who act like 12yo's when their parents hook up...of course when every other word out of the "children's" mouths is a swear word and they are masturbating, looking at porn and talking about their step-mom's nether regions, well...that kinda ruins the whole idea of it. Not to mention the testicles that were shown (who cares that they were fake). Basically, this was a worthless waste of my time and the movie-makers money. The whole idea would have been better left on the drawing board and I'm shocked that these kinda of movies are made these days and only given an R rating. It reminded me why I only watch old movies. Don't watch it, it's not worth your time.

If it is from the same people who made Talladega Nights and Anchorman-it's definitely more of a guy movie! LOL! I've tried to watch those kinds of movies, but I avoid them now. They are usually pretty disgusting!
