Comedy
Step Brothers has no real plot, and it beats a one-joke premise to death. Normally, this would be the start of a negative review, but that one joke is funny and works as a fairly good setup for the comedic duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. The Talladega Nights actors (along with that film’s director, Adam McKay) return for their latest exercise in silliness, and while the results aren’t as consistent as they were in Talladega, they’re still funny. I probably laughed hard a good 15 times, and for that, I recommend it, but it’s not what I would expect from McKay and Ferrell. The movie is at its best when the two stepbrothers are fighting. A scene involving Reilly being buried alive had me in stitches. Hopefully, this isn’t the last time Ferrell and Reilly team up; they just need slightly meatier scripts in the future.
