Roger Ebert When did comedies get so mean?
Adam Nayman Well-made movies come and go, but this kind of dementia is forever.
James Berardinelli When did Will Ferrell stop being funny?
Peter Travers Starting at infantile and regressing hysterically from there, Step Brothers flies on the comic chemistry of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
C. Fuchs Like a bratty kid who won't shut up or go away. It isn't particularly funny and becomes increasingly annoying with each antic.
Tomatometer The relentless immaturity of the humor is not a total handicap for this film, which features the consistently well-matched talents of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
