Step Brothers (2008)

The very idea of two men still living at home with their parents in North America at 40 years of age is pretty ridiculous in many ways, and that is the initial storyline in this film. They are both crude and rude with a primitive nature. What better actors that could be chosen for this than former Saturday Night Live man Will Ferrell as Brennan Huff and veteran movie actor John C. Reilly playing Dale Doback who have both worked together previously in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby (1996).

The storyline was simple in the fact they both come together after their parents get married becoming step brothers, at first they hated one another then they start getting along. Their parents give them an ultimatum that they must find a job or get kicked out of their house. These two cause quite a bit of mischief for Mary Steenburgen as Nancy Huff and Richard Jenkins as Dr. Robert Doback who marries Nancy.

The supporting cast includes Adam Scott as Derek Huff the biological brother of Brennan, Derek‘s wife is played by Kathryn Hahn as Alice Huff who is quite crazy and wild. Their children are played by Lurie Poston as Tommy Huff and Elizabeth Yozamp is Tiffany Huff. Andrea Savage plays Denise who later is the psychologist that works with Will Ferrell‘s character Brennan. The movie was stretched out a bit and could have ended sooner but this left room for more slapstick comedy gags to be put in. There are some scenes in this film that are pretty bazaar. But, I found a few of them to be humorous, I don‘t think this movie will appeal to everyone, but I think it was good enough to watch on DVD.
