722-step-brothersBackground info

Title: Step Brothers
Director: Adam McKay
Year: 2008
Run time: 1hr 38m

“Brennan Huff, a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy. Dale Doback, a terminally unemployed forty-year-old who lives with his father, Robert. When Robert and Nancy marry and move in together, Brennan and Dale are forced to live with each other as step brothers. As their narcissism and downright aggressive laziness threaten to tear the family apart, these two middle-aged, immature, overgrown boys will orchestrate an insane, elaborate plan to bring their parents back together. To pull it off, they must form an unlikely bond that maybe, just maybe, will finally get them out of the house.”

1:20 – Yay! Bonus Mary Steenburgen!
3:27 – “Couldn’t be here because of an important fishing trip.” Best excuse ever.
7:10 – I like his Yoda t-shirt.
8:51 – “I’m not the one staring at me!”
13:54 – Adam Scott doing Ice Ice Baby, goodness me.
17:36 – I couldn’t wear sweatbands on my wrists ALL the time.

Conclusions

Comedy bundle attempt number two was perhaps the best of the three, but still seemed awful. And this is a film featuring lovely Mary Steenburgen. I’ve liked a lot of Will Ferrell movies before but this one just didn’t make any sense. The boys were so stupid and destructive, they would have been thrown out long before they started fighting on the front lawn.
