Step Brothers (2008)

This was the funniest piece of shit film I've watched in a while.

WARNING: I can smell the dichotomy on this one. You know how there are "chick flicks?" Well, this is not one of them. Here's the breaking point. You really have to enjoy infantile humor to laugh. If you don't find dick and fart (literally) humorous, then avoid this film.

Brennan Huff (Will Ferrell) and Dale Doback (John C. Reilly) are 39 and 40 year old man-children, respectively, who are thrust together by a whirlwind late-life marriage of their parents, Nancy Huff (Mary Steenburgen) and Dr. Robert Doback (Richard Jenkins).

Only their mothers could love.

The film's story hardly registers. There is a long 3rd act. The only thing that saves this film . . . the jokes. This film was like the porn of comedy. I can imagine how much I'd hate this film, Ferrell, and Reilly, if I didn't find them hilarious. I couldn't stop laughing at the depravity. This film made me laugh so hard, I gave myself heartburn. That rarely happens.

If you're on the fence about this film, you won't miss out on Step Brothers if you wait for it to be available to rent. I almost feel bad for Reilly and Ferrell because a better story would have made for a low-brow gem.
