10/10: Ferrell & Reilly Are The Best...
Wednesday, August 13, 2008

Ferrell & Reilly Are The Best Buddy Act Since Abbott & Costello Former "Saturday Night Live" comedian Will Ferrell and his Oscar-nominated co-star John C. Reilly are every bit as funny in their new dumb comedy "Step Brothers" as they were in "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby." Incongruity serves as the best source of comedy, and Ferrell & Reilly have the arrested development routine down pat. They play what you might call 'man children.' Aged 40 or thereabouts, they behave like spoiled eight-year old brats and their first-rate performances capture the eternal immaturity of a lot of guys grown-up or otherwise. Mind you, Ferrell perfected this kind of nonsense earlier in the 2003 family friendly movie "Elf." Ferrell excels playing cretinous half-wits, and Reilly has him evenly matched. A formulaic exercise in immature male bonding, "Step Brothers" relies heavily on crude language, homophobic taunts, and hopelessly puerile conduct. For example, wannabe musician Dale (John C...

Better than the average Will Ferrell movie thanks to John C. Reilly When I first saw the trailer for Step Brothers, all I could think was "Oh, great, Will Ferrell again?", I know this guy has a ton of fans, but I don't understand why, he can't really hold a movie together. But I got to see Step Brothers for free and I love John C. Reilly, so I decided to go ahead and just check it out with an open mind. Now there is no doubt, this movie is definitely a lot better than I expected, it's pretty funny, has some really good moments, but still once again, with the older men acting like children, not too original and a lot of the humor seems a little forced. Another comedy brought to us by the Apatow crew, naturally the comedy is over all decent, but please, for the love of God, can they stop with the...

7/10: Yes, it is very stupid...
Sunday, August 2, 2009

Yes, it is very stupid and yet I am ashamed to admit I enjoyed it. Okay, I must admit that this movie was incredibly stupid, offensive and awful...but somehow I still laughed and enjoyed myself. Maybe it was because the film had no pretenses--it never even tried to be deep or intelligent--just appeal to our baser instincts.The reason I watched this film is because I loved TALLADEGA NIGHTS so much. Another Will Farrell/John C. Reilly film sure sounded great--even if it didn't match the quality or laughs of this earlier film.The film is about two total losers who still live at home with their parent, even though they are 39 and 40 years old. On top of this, they both have the common sense and maturity of 7 year-olds---very, very slow 7 year-olds! And in both roles, Ferrell and Reilly both sounded like little boys in adult bodies--and...

5/10: Step Brothers I think I...

Step Brothers I think I may have seen this film mentioned on Film 2008 with Jonathan Ross, and with two good actors I certainly wanted to see it, from director Adam McKay (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, The Other Guys). Basically thirty nine year old loser Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell, also writing), and forty year old loser Dale Doback (John C. Reilly, also writing) have become step brother's when Brennan's mother Nancy (Back to the Future Part III's Mary Steenburgen) and Dale's doctor father Robert (Let Me In's Richard Jenkins) have got married. At first Brennan and Dale have no connection and pretty much resent each other, especially while they are forced to share a bedroom together, but as they find out more about each other, such as their taste in music and stuff, they get on much better and form a pact. Robert tries to lay...

1/10: Step On This Film. Step...
Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Step On This Film. Step Brothers (2008): Dir: Adam McKay / Cast: Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Richard Jenkins, Mary Steenburgen, Adam Scott: Adam McKay directs this foul comedy rather half-heartedly. It is an extreme smaller reduction after having directed such hilarity as Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. It regards family, friendship and teamwork as Brennan and Dale become 40 year old step brothers when their parents meet in a rather rushed premise. From there the two fight and bicker then arrive at a truce. Routine charade of profanity and vulgarity. That pretty much stifles any potential message it could have had. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly overplay their children in adult bodies roles and this is sad considering that Ferrell was at his comic best in Anchorman, and Reilly just came off one of his best performances in Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Mary Steenburgen and Richard Jenkins...
