Step Brothers (2008)

US 98m, Colour
Director: Adam McKay; Cast: Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Richard Jenkins, Mary Steenburgen, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn

An absurd comedy full of memorable quotes, Step Brothers is the story of two overly protected adult sons who learn that their respective parents are planning to get married. Though nearly sabotaging their parent’s relationship, Brennan (Do you wanna do karate in the garage?) and Dale (but you have to call me Dragon) find common ground and form an entertainment company known as “Prestige Worldwide.” Ferrell and Reilly are brilliant as adolescent-adults whose initial animosity toward one another provide some of the film’s funniest moments. Despite the generally low critical acclaim, Step Brothers has long been one of my guilty pleasures, ranking up there with the likes of Nacho Libre (2006) and Tropic Thunder (2008) (Klaus Ming January 2019).
