Story


Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, who last teamed in the box-office smash "Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby," now star in "Step Brothers," directed by Adam McKay ("Talladega Nights"). In "Step Brothers," Ferrell plays Brennan Huff, a sporadically employed thirty-nine-year-old who lives with his mother, Nancy (Mary Steenburgen). Reilly plays Dale Doback, a terminally unemployed forty-year-old who lives with his father, Robert (Richard Jenkins). When Robert and Nancy marry and move in together, Brennan and Dale are forced to live with each other as step brothers. As their narcissism and downright aggressive laziness threaten to tear the family apart, these two middle-aged, immature, overgrown boys will orchestrate an insane, elaborate plan to bring their parents back together. To pull it off, they must form an unlikely bond that maybe, just maybe, will finally get them out of the house. The screenplay is by Will Ferrell & Adam McKay from a story by Will Ferrell & Adam McKay & John C. Reilly. Jimmy Miller and Judd Apatow produce.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..wildly outrageous..”
by Garrett Conti [Pittsburgh Tribune-Review]
“..surprisingly raunchy, decidedly R-rated comedy..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
“..Like a few other comedies in recent memory, this feels it should have been a Saturday Night Live skit rather than a full-length film..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
