Product Description

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.


Crude, juvenile (and proud of it), Step Brothers stars Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly as two 40-year-old men, both living at home and leading the lives of 13-year-old boys, who are thrown together when their single parents (Mary Steenburgen, Parenthood, and Richard Jenkins, Six Feet Under) get married. Brennan (Ferrell) and Dale (Reilly) start out hating each other as only teenage boys can--but things get even worse for their long-suffering parents when they become best friends. Step Brothers gets most of its mileage from very low brow humour, but hidden among the flatulence and masturbation jokes is the suggestion that while these guys may be emotionally arrested, so are Brennan's hotshot business executive brother (Adam Scott, Tell Me You Love Me) and his high-fiving frat boy pals--just in a way that's condoned because it makes money. Also crucial is that Ferrell and Reilly capture adolescence in all its gruesome glory--the awkward insecurity but also the egomaniacal, arrogant self-centeredness. Mind you, this isn't the American version of The 400 Blows or anything. All in all though, Step Brothers combines the adolescent humour of producer Judd Apatow (Superbad, Knocked Up) and the comic chemistry of Ferrell and Reilly (who previously co-starred in Talladega Nights)--fans of either will find plenty to enjoy. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars See this movie 30 Aug 2009
This film is hilarious. If you enjoyed Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby then you will love this film. It's childish, purile and side splittingly funny. The chemistry between Will Ferrell and John C Reilly is obvious and you only have to watch the extras to realise they love working together. Don't even waste your money getting the standard copy, YOU NEED the extended version. Loads more extras, loads more laughs.

Will ferrell stars along with John C Reilly as an unlikely odd couple of 40-something singletons still living at home with their Mom Nancy and Dad -Robert, who are forced to become stepbrothers when Robert And Nancy get married meaning the clan is forced to move in with each other.

The humour comes from the fact Ferrell and Reilly play the roles as if they were 10 year old kids , and it is as if they could well be as theyre still living at home, playing with Star Wars masks, and playing with toys, childish posters on the walls. Its this coming together which brings much of the hilarity , such as when theyre forced to look for jobs against their wishes and messing up the Job interviews deliberately leading them to set up their own company - Prestige worldwide, with a hilarious promotional video called Boats 'n Hoes - which is brilliantly funny. theres also the issue of sibling rivalry between Ferrell and his successful brother Adam Mackay, leading to some funny scenes between the two, and to complicate things further, His wife takes a shine to John Reilly leading to more hilarity between the two of them.

The film has plenty of quotable lines and rewatch value, I write this review belatedly as i bought it when it came out in 2009 as my copy came with 2 discs, including a digital copy which Sony dont seem to accommodate anymore.

As for extras this bluray is excellent including an extended cut of the film, which is brilliant and adds more to the story, plus Commentaries, Gag reels, making of documentary and the actual Boats 'n Hoes video itself.

All in all this is an excellent film and Ive watched it a good few times and it always makes me laugh , one of the best comedies in
recent years IMO and an excellent purchase overall highly recommended.

Robert and Nancy fall in love, move in together, and get married - it should be the fairytale romance for a couple who are nearing retirement and plan on selling up and living the dream - sailing around the world. Unfortunately though there are a couple of obstacles in the way, their children...

...Brennan and Dale may act like a couple of 11 year old squabbling kids, but they're middle aged men. Much of the comedy in this film comes from seeing two grown ups acting like children and it's not just the childish actions but often the subtle expressions on their faces or the way they get excited about things ("can we turn our beds into bunk beds?!"). Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are brilliantly cast as the two warring step brothers, their over-the-top performances don't appear over-acted, instead they really do look like adults who failed to grow up!

This film has a very simple plot and could quite easily have just been a series of funny moments held together by a flimsy story, but the characterisations work well and there's a consistency of quality throughout (apart from one or two scenes where a joke gets over-milked, such as the momentum halting sleep walking scenes). The film has a few moments of cringe-worthy comedy and some pretty debased humour - and it works well because the film doesn't rely on it in the same way that movies such as American Pie tend to do so, here they exist within the film rather than define it. Many reviews on here have criticised the bad language in Step Brothers, maybe it's just because the swearing stands out when it's alongside childish behaviour - but for me it wasn't an issue and for a 15 rated film I don't think it's so bad, in fact it wasn't an issue to me at all and in many places it was pretty funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Lose Your Inner Dinosaur 29 Nov 2009
Good advice from Richard Jenkins as the dad.

This is quite a sweet film really about not growing up too soon and family values and that kind of stuff. But you can ignore all that if you like. Ferrell and Reilly do their thing and do it well. Facial expressions and routines to make you laugh out loud. More a series of sketches loosely connected, but it doesn't matter - all very funny. Adam Scott was good too as Ferrell's real brother. And Mary Steenburgen as the good-hearted mom. The highlight for me - the Billy Joel tribute act who only do his 80's songs. A special award for the writer who came up with that one.

A film to see on TV or buy (cheap) on DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reilly and Ferrell, a magical pairing. 24 Jan 2010
By R. Hill
I was talked into picking up this film by my best mate. He'd been on at me for ages about how when they saw this film at the cinema, his girlfriend sat there embarrassed - while he was rolling around in the aisle roaring with laughter. He wasn't wrong. Step Brothers was the funniest DVD release of 2009.

I'm not gonna sit here and talk you into how well scripted this film was, how the direction was nothing but stellar, or how refined the acting performances were or how well balanced the story and pacing was throughout the duration - because if I did, on all accounts I'd be lying through my teeth.

This film is pretty simple, it's about a pair of unrelated and immature 39-40 year old 'men' named Brennan Huff and Dale Doback - acting like a pair of socially inept mid-teens. When both their respective parents' meet at a convention, in true Hollywood style their parents quickly fall in love and marry - meaning that these two immature men are suddenly thrown together under the same roof as Step-brothers. The real joke being that both Brennan and Dale are oblivious to just how useless they both are.

OK, fair enough, like most modern films a re-watch helped vastly - but even so, this is one hell of a hilarious film. You know when you see the trailer for an average film like 'Superbad' and the narrator describes it as 'laugh out loud funny' comedy, or 'full of laughs'...and then you're only gone and let down when you eventually see what all the fuss was about? Well, have no fear, unlike the likes of 'Superbad', Step Brothers actually IS laugh out loud funny, it IS a non-stop roller-coaster of laughter - often in the crudest ways possible. I simply cannot recall the last time I saw a film where I laughed aloud for longer and harder - and consistently as this film.
