Critic Reviews for Step Brothers
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?
You only needed one look at the poster for Step Brothers to know exactly what this film would be like.
Step Brothers is unashamedly dumb, unoriginal and downright offensively childish. But aren't these the very same reasons why people like these movies?
Audience Reviews for Step Brothers
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.
There isn't much to be appreciated in this film. It's pointless. It accomplishes nothing.
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.
