'Step Brothers' Review

'Step Brothers' Review
One of the Best Comedies of the 2000s

Rating: ★★★★½

Before he made a complete 180-degree career change, making serious biopics instead of goofy comedies, Adam McKay directed one of the best comedies of the 2000s.
The movie follows two middle-aged men, Brennan and Dale, who still live with their parents as they are forced to live together when their parents get married.

With great comedic talents behind and in front of the camera, no wonder this movie is the hilarity goldmine that it is. While this movie's sense of humour may not be everyone's cup of tea, given the raunchiness and immaturity, those who like stupid comedies would adore this flick. Scenes like the Job Interview montage or the music video the two make for their song called 'Boat 'N Hoes' will have you in stitches. 

Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who co-wrote the movie will director McKay, share an impeccable chemistry as the arrested development-riddled 40-year-olds, Brennan and Dale. The way the two actors play off each other is purely magical.
The supporting cast also isn't without their moments of greatness. Adam Scott is frequently funny as the unapologetically mean Derek, and Richard Jenkins and Mary Steenburgen play the perfect straight people to Ferrell and Reilly's lunacy.

Although the raunchy humour may not be for everyone,  'Step Brothers' is an entertaining and consistently hilarious comedic satire on the American nuclear family with fun performances from Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.
