Step Brothers (2008)
Critic Consensus: Step Brothers indulges in a cheerfully relentless immaturity that will quickly turn off viewers unamused by Ferrell and Reilly -- and delight those who find their antics hilarious.

Critic Reviews for Step Brothers
It isn't even the funniest movie I've seen this year. But it sure made me laugh.
The potentially gooey conclusion is leavened with cynical irreverence.
The shouty variety of manchild comedy that Ferrell has cribbed from Jerry Lewis divides movie fans intensely. Here's the one we should put in the time capsule.
On its own terms, Step Brothers is hilarious. But it's a shame that the filmmakers didn't have more faith in the audience. Why resort to gross-out tactics when your premise is strong enough to allow for a more sophisticated approach?
Audience Reviews for Step Brothers
With so much that is quite retarded here, this is actually a hilarious Apatowian comedy that works so well thanks to Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who have a great onscreen chemistry together and can be really charismatic playing two clueless idiots.
Step Brothers present a silly humor, but the talents of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly with an interesting story, become a high point to McKay's movie.
After recently re-watching "Step Brothers," I have to admit, it has lost some it's charm that made it's dumber humour enjoyable the first time around. I loved this movie when it came out in theatres back in 2010, but quite honestly, it is just not one of those films that will have a lasting effect for years to come. Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are a great pairing for brothers, and they play off each other very well, but by the end of the movie they actually began annoying me. For years I thought this movie was great, but it's jokes only hit half of the time and everyone seems to be over-acting. It is odd, because I definitely felt differently about this movie before. "Step Brothers" mixes clever humour with downright juvenile humour and sometimes it doesn't work. But the clever humour and all the improve is great, so I still was able to enjoy most of the movie.
