Step Brothers (2008)


Two aimless middle-aged losers still living at home are forced against their will to become roommates when their parents marry. (IMDb)
Way over-the-top? Yes. But the adult-child antics of Ferrell and Reilly are never anything less than laugh-out-loud hilarious (and the final act in which they suppress then re-capture their spunk for life brings it down to earth in moving fashion), whether they’re having meltdowns at the dinner table or naively starting international corporations. A great supporting cast of characters (sympathetic mom, short-fused dad, douche-y and successful brother) rounds out the story and the humour nicely.
8/10 (Great)

  1. Haven’t seen this one in ages, but I definitely agree that it’s over-the-top nature is easy to get caught up in. Ferrell and Reilly have excellent comedic chemistry! Great review, man!
