Step Brothers

They grow up so fast.


Step Brothers
This comedy from the Apatow stable delivers more of the raucous comedy that fans have come to expect. Two grown men are still living with a parent. As luck (and movie scripts) would have it, their parents meet, fall in love, and shack up together. Due to space constraints, that puts the two 'kids', both around 40 years old, into the same bedroom. They degenerate into childish and randy-teen like behaviour towards each other, but find a common enemy in the one's very successful, very snooty brother.

95 minutes.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconStarting at infantile and regressing hysterically from there, Step Brothers flies on the comic chemistry of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconLike a bratty kid who won't shut up or go away. It isn't particularly funny and becomes increasingly annoying with each antic.

Tomatometer quote iconThe 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.
