The plot is about as simple as they come: Brennan Huff (Ferrell) and Dale Doback (Reilly) are deadbeat man-children thrown together when the single parents with whom they live marry. The two initially despise one another, but become fast friends over a shared love of ninjas, COPS, porn magazines, and the comforts of living in the fantasy world of a prolonged adolescence. What makes STEPBROTHERS so much fun, however, has nothing to do with story or script; rather, it's McKay's foresight to step back and let Ferrell and Reilly run wild. The duo kick and punch, fart and burp, laugh and cry, yet somehow elevate such banalities to a level of grotesque poetry, hitting upon what feels like an entirely new comedic language. When the pair acts like children, they are not presenting themselves as immature adults, but are literally acting like children, meticulously duplicating everything from the fears and concerns to the speech patterns and awkward physicality of children. It sounds simple enough, but it requires a dexterity and sense of timing and delivery that is actually quite amazing.
The fantastic foursome behind TALLADEGA NIGHTS – THE BALLAD OF RICKY BOBBY--Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Judd Apatow, and Adam McKay--reunite for this comedy about two grown men who become step brothers. Though the pair of men (Ferrell and Reilly) are over the hill, they still aren't out of their parents' houses, and they have to learn to get along when their respective mother and father get married.
